The outrage at GTA5 makes me kind of angry, but more than anything it makes me feel helpless.
I don't see any way of defending it as a male gamer, who sometimes posts comments on the internet.
All I can say is that I don't think the game is alienating to female gamers. I don't think the torture scene is offensive; it does its job at being uncomfortable. I don't think that everything that happens in a games story needs to be morally analyzed and picked apart
