@bocam: Fictional characters can say plenty of offensive things, but whether it's the best and most fun thing for a game to include an offensive thing is debatable. In this case, some feel Akiba's Trip is a silly, light-hearted romp through vampire-laden Akihabara and the use of a random anti-transgender slur is out of place and hurtful toward their enjoyment of that fun game.
A fictional character in the next Pokemon game could shout, "I'm glad that thug Michael Brown was killed!" if the developer wanted them to, but I imagine many may say it's out of place and rather distracting to their experience of an otherwise cheerful game free from such real world concerns. Something being offensive to someone doesn't mean it automatically belongs in a game no matter anyone's objections. Sometimes inclusions are simply mistakes that detract more than they make a game better, and it's reasonable for people to suggest that may be the case.
I think we should make sure to not mistake concern over a specific and distracting slur with an interest in shutting out any and all potentially offensive content of any kind. Obviously, the feelings and concerns of others different from ourselves are worth considering, and any slight level of concern is not equivalent with an irrational, hyperbolic caricature of concern. These are just real gamers like you disliking that something harmful in their real lives was dragged into an otherwise fun and frivolous game about stripping attractive Japanese vampires while wearing your favorite waifu shirt.
Well, I think it all depends on one thing: context. Context is everything in situations like these. And I think due to the context it is used in its absolutely fine and there is a lot of stink being raised about nothing. Let me throw this at you if Franklin in GTA V drops N Bombs all the time as does his associates. Why? Because it is HOW those kind of characters act and they were trying for the most authentic version of those characters. That doesn't mean its okay to go around throwing the N word around but in that situation it makes sense to put in the game just as it makes sense to put what Xseed did in the game. They were trying to emulate a specific type of person and used the same kind of verbage said person would likely use.
I think its silly to be offended by this.
