Is God Of War: Ascension Misogynistic As Sessler Claims?
There's no chance I'm touching this one. I'm merely asking for opinions of gamers.
God of War: Ascension isn't pulling down God of War-like review scores, but one less-than-favorable review comes from Rev3Games Editor-in-Chief and former G4 host Adam Sessler, who cited a misogynistic side to Ascension.
He said a Trophy called "Bros Before Hos" is awarded if you stomp a female enemy's face in, and this is hardly tasteful. He ended up giving the game 3 out of 5 stars and many gamers took to YouTube to complain. Some are saying Sessler's focus on that particular scene dragged the score down and on top of which, considering the standard GoW context, there's nothing offensive about it in the first place. It's a sensitive subject, of course, and one that is bound to rile everyone up; it's kinda like politics in that way. I'm steering clear.
Like I said, I issue no comment. Just wondering if people find this anti-female or whatever.
