Capture the Babe Mode Women Drama
A tumult is arising regarding a new video game that has players abducting women and giving them a “reassuring slap” if the abductees protest and it’s got women’s rights groups and others almost up in arms.
It’s the new incarnation of the popular Duke Nukem series of video games that depicts women as strippers and prostitutes. This new version is ready for a Spring release and even is reportedly has scenes where the lead character, Duke receiving hinted at oral sex from twins in school uniforms.
Jamia Wilson, the Vice President of the Women’s media Center told FoxNews.com,
“It was offensive then and it’s even more offensive now.”
“These depictions of women are extremely harmful, especially to young women.”
Editor-in-Chief, Duke Ferris of GameHelper.com stated that sexism in an intentional part of “Duke Nukem Forever”, and went on to explain:
“The game is meant to objectify women—that’s the point.”
Eliot Mizrachi, spokesman for the Entertainment Software Rating Board says,
“Our job is to provide consumers with information and guidance that helps them choose games they deem suitable for themselves and their families.This game carries a Mature rating indicating that it’s intended for ages 17 and up, and retailers overwhelmingly enforce their store policies requiring that M-rated games not be sold to a customer under that age without a parent’s consent ”.
With this added popularity due to the controversy it will most likely push sales even higher. So get ready for more Duke Nukem.
