Dear Mainstream Media:
Please, please, please stop talking about video games. In any way, shape or form. Forever.
Would you like to know why? So we never have to deal with Fox News trying to wrap it’s square brain around a game like Mass Effect ever again:
I know it’s so effin’ mind blowing that a video game might have sexual content (’cause apparently Leisure Suit Larry never actually happened), but c’mon now! L.A. Law had more alien sex* than Mass Effect. (It also had more Corbin Bernsen and Harry Hamlin, which immediately elevates above Mass Effect as entertainment, but regardless) Mainstream media, please stop embarrassing yourselves like this. Granted, Fox News shouldn’t be considered anything other than the smacked on the head with a large hammer version of news commentary, but you have to love how Geoff Knightley (who qualifies as a certifiable expert in this regard, especially compared to his ‘opposition’) tries very hard to dial down the hysteria, only to be summarily ignored in favor of said hysteria.
Oh, for the record: Here’s that tamer than tame sex scene. I’m surprised North America hasn’t just exploded in an erotic frenzy of death over this, how about you?
