Video-game controversy strikes again, over Portal 2.
A father who's daughter is adopted took offence at the line by Wheatley - "What's wrong with being adopted? Urm.. no parents."
While I can understand the line itself might bring up questions in their household, the context it is presented in (Wheatley is specifically described as being the combined moronic elements of the mind) and the fact that the entire game is presented with a light humoured tone, particularly the insulting nature of the artifical characters, I would say outweigh any gravity the line creates.
But what do you think GB? Is is right to turn the game off and ring the news channels? Is Portal 2 offensive?
Honestly I find the reporters more ignorant than the father, when they blame Sony for "passing the buck" onto Valve, who created the game. They really think this is worse than anything you'd find said in a school playground? And in general, does the news have a right judging games?
