Marriage in this country is a joke anyhow. So I'm not bothered by it. In fact I expect it and almost encourage people at that level to sleep around. Do you guys have any idea how stressful those jobs are? And sex is an awesome stress reliever.
For a while I thought the whole marriage scandals that happen time and time again in this country are just some cover up for something really bad that they did. Like this dude just murdered an orphanage but the American public wouldn't be able to handle it, so they just repackage his mistake into an affair. It's more palatable that way.
Artists(read Game designers etc) have a responsibility to give the audience what they need not what they want. It is a sad fact that artists however do not get to run the companies nor make the bigger decisions as much as they should. So great ideas fall to the wayside because of market research and focus groups listening and pandering to the lowest common denominator out of all the consumers. When games move away from being products and mere entertainment to something more then we wouldn't have such a problem. This is the same problem big budget movies face everyday as well.
The ignorant are always the most vocal. So yeah sometimes the outcry of fans ruins games but I think the "blame" should be reserved for bigger honchos.
I like how everyone is mentioning that you cursed in front of the kid and that is some societal no-no when he is attending a movie with graphic depictions of violence, sex, and cursing. All things that can corrupt children in some peoples eyes. I find it even funnier that "curse words" still have leverage in society. Words, people they are just words. Teach them their uses and what they mean and don't be so afraid of them.
Also @Wolverine: I live in Central Jersey myself and the rudeness and general lack of humanity by those who identify themselves as being from North Jersey, New York, and fans of the Jersey Shore in any incarnation, be it show or locale, is overwhelming.
Also many of you have never been to the movies in Philly where people from the first row will talk to people in the last row during the movie. I shit you not.
And no reference to the Simpsons yet... I guess I'll do it.
