Idiots

I'm a rational and informed cable news junkie. It's for that reason that I know where to place Fox "News" on the continuum of accuracy (low) and sensationalism (high), but sometimes it still shocks me just how stupid they are.

Case in point, the video above. Every time I hear arguments such as those given all I can think about is how appalling it is for a certain mindset to hear "full digital nudity" and fear for civilization.

It always comes down to the person's own internal fears and desires, as Allison so aptly explained here.

For the record, Mass Effect is a wonderful and emotional game. The "sex" scene is PG-13 and is nothing that isn't on TV. You don't control the sex scene, it is a movie that plays (a cutscene). If you don't interact with your fellow characters, you won't get the cutscene. Finally, the only character you control the look/gender of is the main character, aka, you. The other characters are what they are. There is no virtual boob enhancement.

Honestly, I don't have any problem with people criticizing video games. Just get the facts straight or you'll end up sounding like an idiot. I guess you get used to that after a while, though.

PS - If I was EA, I'd sue for slander. You gotta hit corporations like Fox "News" where it hurts...in the pocket book.
