Obviously consumers are going to do what they want, and this is only one more thing to add onto the incredibly long list of unethical production practices when it comes to video games. But while I can't imagine Metal Gear devotees staying away from what seems to be Hideo Kojima's final entry in the series, it could be tough to balance excitement for their favorite franchise with the knowledge that the people who made that game did so under these conditions.
It is the ultimate Catch-22: If I buy the game then I am supporting a corporate culture that is comically evil, and if I don't I encourage them to continue in this direction.
Loved the Sarkeesian video. While I wouldn't blame anyone who gives up criticizing games because of the harassment, attacks, and fear physical harm, I'm glad she is still out there pushing forward the discussion on women's issues and games.
