There are times where I get my inspiration for things to talk about after I go through YouTube. Sometimes, it’s to watch some of my favorite guys play… sometimes, it’s to learn. One of those people who I respect for teaching things within gaming are the Game Theorists. If you ever seen an episode of Game Theory, you know who I’m talking about here.
Today, I’m focusing on one of the members of that group and a video he made in April. That member is Gaijin Goombah and his video is all about an age old argument posed to gamers: Are breasts far more damaging then blood?
It has me thinking… Is there a double standard out there? I think so. You look at games that are given a ‘M’ rating and most of the time games are given this rating because of violence. Games like Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil… everyone of these games are violent. There is no getting around that, but anytime sexuality is involved in a game, the mood changes like that.
Look at Bayonetta 2. This game was a freaking godsend for the Wii U. High scores all around… except there was that nagging feeling that people could find something wrong with it and that was her over the top sexuality. I don’t know about you guys, but I like a girl who is confident in who she is. If she has the body to flaunt, then flaunt it honey! Just make sure you aren’t sharing that body with no one but me. ????
You look at Dead or Alive and there is a reason that I consider it to be the ‘Hollywood Starlet’ of it’s genre. It looks great, but yet it gets backlash because of it’s focus on the females. To that, I say… have you seen some of the guys in that series? There is enough eye candy for both sides to make them happy.
Now, Gaijin does mention that he thinks that it’s an excuse to say that America loves violence but fears sex… Uh, that’s not an excuse. That’s flat out truth there. I use to live in a very conservative part of the country and the town I lived in was extremely Catholic. These kind of things would be an issue here. I just don’t understand why people act the way they do, but I can only do what I can do…
For now, all of us should look at this argument and tell yourself ‘These two things are key to human nature…’. Sometimes, the technology just takes a little longer to catch up with our biological needs.
