IGN - The Unlocked crew talks about the Call of Duty: Ghosts reveal and how seeing a woman stabbed in a realistic multiplayer game made them feel.
The very fact this subject was brought up offends me greatly. Fortunately it's pleasing to hear most women talking about this issue have sensible views. It seems mostly that the white knights are getting sand in their vagina about this.
Stabbing a woman in CoD will feel the same as when I stab a man. It'll feel awesome. Equality for all.
I agree as well im already sick of these articles.... its all a game none of it is real , i wish people could just enjoy it for what it is and not blow it out of proportion. male or female who cares..the only article i wanna see about a female character in Ghost is how we have more freedom to customize our characters, everything else is more drama n nonsense
People need to understand context here. Your are not stabbing a woman. You are stabbing an enemy combatant. Its ok for violence of any sort in entertainment as long as there's context... There's probably a limit but it depends greatly.
Been killing women characters in games for years. Anyone who has played some of the older games like Unreal Tournament (1999) already know that if you don't take that woman player out first, she will have no mercy on you. Equality for all. Bring it Ladies. Only thing is, I know that guys will pick those characters and try to taunt you because you are getting p0wnd by a girl. It's an age old strategy.
Couldn't agree with you more. It isn't even a talking point. Seems a little sexist to me, like they don't want women in there game. There all sitting there acting super sensitive to the subject. The girl is not bothered by it at all, because now she gets to own these three delicate flowers as a chick in game. It's a game of kill or be killed. Give me a brick and I will cave her head in.
How old are you? Young I take it....
And stubbing men is ok? Wow those articles are so odd.
They are inadvertently trying to turn women into "damsels in distress" by even suggesting that they should get an exemption. If it's war, being stabbed, shot, etc are concerns you have to face. Is it okay for the female character to stab males? This is a rediculously demeaning topic for women to assume that they should be protected and treated like mindless, defenseless little newborns. If a female soldier pointed a gun in my face and all I had was a knife, she's getting stabbed if the opportunity presents itself. Same for a dude soldier. War isn't some pampered beauty spa. It's violence. And any woman who is a soldier understands that.
Just having women for the sake of having them is stupid overall. I want a studio to come out and make a war game that pulls the heart strings and has a strong narrative.
Spec Ops the Line has a very strong narrative.
Too bad it's not theirs, it's Joseph Conrad's.
Why should I only be stabbing men? Why not women and children too? It's a video game, not real life. We should be able to stab who we want.
I want to stab sharks.
Kids? No thanks, mate.
These people are ass-backwards. Women are out there in the real battle field being shot at. Why, even in a imagery world should they not be represented? Not only MEN die in War jerks, Women die too.
Yes but most women aren't on the front line. In USA anyways.
And how would you know that exactly?
They're no goggle it.
They will be seeing as a law was passed that woman must now be on the field alongside men. I Shud know my Friends a marine
Women are on the frontlines. I think the only place women arent in the military are special forces.
Sometimes I can't believe people still think like this in 2013. Are they still stuck in the middle ages? Women aren't precious little porcelain flowers that can't do anything except wearing pretty clothes. I think whoever gets upset about hurting women in videogames in this kind of gender-neutral context is just trying to hide the fact that he doesn't want women to be represented as men's equals. And I don't even get why we're having a debate about this right now... there have been female enemies/players in games since forever. Seems to me like this is just a case of conservative people getting all butthurt over women in the military
Why should it make me feel any different from stabbing a man? I know it's only a game so i have no issues with this.
Enough u maniac feminist. It just a game I feel fun when playing and dont care it digital men or woman or shemale. Soon there is someone will post an article "what do u feel kicking a white/black/blue/purple people on Final Fantasy" :)
Oh here we go again, because stabbing a woman in make believe is worse than stabbing a man in make believe. ...Grow up people!!
Its a game........a GAME get over it it shot stable t bag whatever makes you happy, who cares what gender its all the same if they are in your way.
Whats up with all these articles. Thought this was a gaming site not CNN.
"how do I feel after stabbing a woman in COD?" seriously?..this is a real article? Who are these sissy "white knights" writing these things? oh god go get laid!!!
Do those woman move out of the way when you get close to them?
Lol^ welk you wont be wble to knife them from behind, but they sure will do it to you lol
Only COD can make people make articles about staring women even though its been happening since like what GTA 3 most likely far before even that? It dosent matter if its a male or female you twats its bloody game and COD for that matter.
I'd be more interested in a "How T-Bagging Women in CoD: Ghosts Makes Us Feel" article, i'm sure femanazies would appreciate it more since it'd be less violent LoL
feminazis? really? nice one rush, mind you i bet he could at least spell the word correctly. two Is one E you know feminists were very much against hitler, in fact he had many of them killed in concentration camps. that's why that word is so disgusting. they were against hitler long before any other country got involved, and many of them died for it. it's funny, well pathetic at least, the one who shares many of the ideals that hitler had regarding women, among many other things, like torture of prisoners, was the one to coin the term feminazi. without a single iota of understanding of why that word is so wrong and offensive, or any kind of understanding about what feminism and the nazis were truly about. i pity you that you actually see a weasel of a man like limbaugh as some kind of standard to live up to.
Who the hell is limbaugh ? and thanks for the vocabulary lesson chief, i'll be sure to tell this cool story to my grand children lol
you don't know? you're quoting the man using that word. maybe you should try to understand the words you use before you actually use them. if you care you can google rush limbaugh, the thought of talking about him in any kind of detail makes me nauseous.
Your not stabbing women, your stabbing polygons. Huge difference.
A whole lot of kids/people in here never been in the "real" military I see. I did 8 years in the US Marines and was raised a military brat the first 20 years of my life. There is no women in the front lines of the Corps. So of course seeing it in a video game is most certainly different.
So complaints that women are not in the game, and now that they are, we get complaints that they can be killed? What do?
funny how it's the guys that have the problem and the woman says it shouldn't be any different to stabbing a guy in the face. and it shouldn't. these women aren't going to be victims, they're the enemy, they'll be trying to kill you in the game, so you should be trying to kill them first. they'll see you as the enemy and try to kill you. if women want equality, and we do, this is it. equal footing with the men. we're not delicate flowers that need protecting. we're not a prize to be won. we're not just decoration. we're soldiers, we're gang leaders, we're the hero that saves the world, just like the men. and just like the men, that means we can die in game. the more interesting question is, how will guys react to getting killed by women in game? most guys will be fine with it i expect, but i bet there are some who really won't like it.
Personally i will not like stabbing women in games. Heck i don't like killing women in games. However this should not be an issue at all for the inclusion in games. It's just a game. Its fiction. It's not real.
