The following statement has been taken directly from the article by FOX:
“Brace yourself for the awfully sexist world of Duke Nukem Forever. The game’s 1996 precursor Duke Nukem 3D – which sold 3.5 million copies, made millions for its developers and transformed the entire world of video games — depicted women as strippers and prostitutes. The new iteration of the game, set for release this spring, takes sexism to a new level — starting with Duke receiving implied oral sex from twins in school uniforms.
The game will be available in stores and online, where customers must click a button stating they are 17 years of age or older — the only barrier to children buying such a game. The ESRB argues that its ratings effectively allow consumers to self-police: If you find that sort of thing offensive, simply don’t let your kids buy the game. “
And of course, FOX found that “one” perfect person to comment on the situation, in this case, Women’s Media Center VP, Jamia Wilson:
“It was offensive then and it’s even more offensive now. These depictions of women are extremely harmful, especially to young women.”
This is something we all knew would happen. It really isn’t even worth going into it. People who don’t understand the material they have to work on, like reporters who write articles about games they haven’t even played, will always make inaccurate accusations.
I’d like to close this news article with my personal answer to all those haters(including clueless reporters) who talk shit about Duke Nukem.
