Need to Vent SO Playing Derogatory Game! Grrrr adult content

My SO is playing Fable on Xbox and I find it totally derogatory towards women.
In this "game" they take prositutes and sleep with them...go to "whore houses", take wives than KILL them for money.
It's pissing me off..even though it's just a "game".
I don't know why feel so irrationally.
I feel not only jealousy about the females but degraded.
I wonder if corporate Big Whigs would ever invent a game where women did such things
to men??!  With a woman on the cover.

(It should be noted that sex scenes arn't shown and I come from an abusive background).
Am I alone in this feeling??

  • Who thinks of games like that?

  • Maybe you're jealous of the amount of money they make?

    I wouldn't call it derogatory towards women --prostitutes make their living taking advantage of men's inability to control themselves, or develop intimate relationships. If men weren't so easily exploited, there would be no prostitution.

  • I already thought of the title for your new game where woman rule- "Ball Busters!" Where women lure men into seductive situations & find numerous ways to torture their manliness! Quick- call Nintendo- better to have it on the Wii- LOL

  • didnt even know there was such a game. Thats really bad. I wouldnt like that either. Just by playing garbage like that its gonna mess you up in the head sooner or later, some more some less. People should "play" junk like that.

  • You can make a female character and do the same thing to men.

  • i dont understand how games like that can be enjoyable. its like all those combat games and auto thief ones. its so desenseitizing. did you know that the military actually "likes" kids that play alot of combat games because when they actually get out into combat they treat it like a game and dont even think twice about what they are doing. its sickening.

    because of stuff like i i will not allow game systems into my house. i dont want my kids to be so absorbed into games that they forget that there is more to life and loose their creativity.

  • as long as he treats you well i dont understand why you care how he directs his FAKE characters to treat FAKE women...if he mistreats YOU or disrespects YOU, thats a whole other story though!
