jungle jane -- Not if, as the game suggests, you kill the hooker when you're done and take your money back. And while you're at it, take whatever money she had too. In a sense, you're making money.

I am boycotting everything!

J Holden said...

anymore...i am shocked by nothing

mike -- I hope you're not boycotting puppies and kitties... They're delicious.

j holden -- I'm not surprised so much as angered to the point of extra-high blood pressure.

jungle jane said...

i wonder if it would be best to root her before or after killing her?

morbid misanthrope said...

jungle jane -- Possibly a little from column A, and a little from column B.

I'm boycotting boycotting!

polyman2 -- That seems rather hypocritical. Hypocritical or zany.

I don't like these kind of games, they seem kinda dumb. I don't like people blaming video games for their kids messed upness. Dude, if you think a game is screwing up your kid, take the stupid game away and exercise parental power!

Why am I ranting? This isn't my blog!

Thanks Morbid!

LMFAO omg, if anything they should be happy they include prostitutes in games nowadays. So whats so bad about killing a few skanky whores? uoh reg girls dont count? FINE.

wax lion -- The game itself is so-so. I've played it a number of times, yet I've never killed a hooker. In fact, I've never even paid a hooker for sex.

I agree with you. The government doesn't need to get involved with this shit. It should be up to parents to make sure their kids aren't playing games they shouldn't be playing.

Feel free to rant around here any time you want. It might make me look a little less crazy... Ok, maybe not, but I've always been a fan of ranting.

akuma -- If every single ethnic/racial/occupational/lifestyle/etc. isn't represented everywhere, people get pissed. When they are represented, people still get pissed. Look, if you're a hooker, getting beaten and killed is an occupational hazard. Not every "John" is prince charming. If anything, this game should be rewarded for realism. Well, at least I THINK so; I don't spend much time with whores in the ghetto.

jungle jane said...

well taxi drivers face being beaten/drugges/attacked at work too. so. i think taxi drivers should boycott this game too.

right?

morbid misanthrope said...

jungle jane -- I think everyone needs to get a sense of humor. It might cut down on the number of senseless boycotts.

Give me a fucking break. These women are on the streets everyday selling their bodies and hoping that they don't get killed in the process. The game depicts real life. In the real life of a prostitute, they take a chance of dying every time they get in the car with a john. They chose their lifestyle. I have no pity.

Ohhh......It said that children were more susceptable to the game. Any whore that would use a child as a trick deserves to die.

Victor said...

I disagree DB, whores should use little kids... lol

drunkbh -- You make a lot of good points. The subhead on that article is what gets me: "Sex workers cry foul, say game ‘accrues points to players for the depiction of rape and murder of prostitutes.’"

In the game you don't rape the prostitutes. In fact, from my experiences, you have to pay them to have sex. Killing them afterwards and taking your money back is optional. As the article mentions near the end, that isn't rape, and there is no actual rape in the game. What, a headline like "Prostitutes Call for Ban on GTA" wasn't sensationalistic enough without rape being involved? I would advise these sex workers to suck it up...er, get over it.

akuma -- What an unusual thing to say. I hope you realize comments like that won't help further your career in the child daycare industry.

Thank you Morbid, for allowing me to rant!!

morbid misanthrope said...

wax lion -- No problem. I encourage ranting almost as much as I encourage underage drinking.

Fuckkit said...

Well damnit if you can't beat on hookers when you're short on cash who can ya beat on?

morbid misanthrope said...

fuckkit -- Generally, you can beat the shit out of anyone you want. Unfortunately, simple assault and battery charges have given way to lawsuits. You can beat up the lawyers, but then you get sued again. What a world...
