Duke Nukem Forever Interview

Gearbox's Pitchford On Gaming's Grown-Up World on Gamasutra converses with Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford about Duke Nukem Forever, and why he feels there isn't "a line" games shouldn't cross. "Is there a line [to cross]? If our medium is art, how could there be a line?" he posits. "How could we allow there to be a line, and who gets to decide what the line is? That's a very slippery slope -- there should not be a line."

There's an entire internet full of porn and you think this is cool? Are you 12?" kind of way.

Which is EXACTLY my response to it all. I've seen Disney movie trailers that were more titillating than anything I've seen in DNF so far. Still, unless immediate danger to public safety is involved (the old yelling "fire" in a crowded theater example) I will always and forever remain steadfastly against censorship of any form. Like you, I'd instead counsel good judgement, so I think we're mostly on the same page, at least conceptually. As far as DNF goes, however, while base and puerile, nothing in DNF even remotely seems over the line to me. Honestly, like Pitchford, I don't think there is a line, per se.

BAH- I never asked for authoritarian intervention against GB. Others assigned that argument to me falsely and you just regurgitated it.

I regurgitated nothing except your own words at you; I can't help it if you take general statements personally.

Notice I said: "What I do have a problem with is someone telling me...". If I meant you, I would have said "What I do have a problem with is YOU telling me...". I even went so far as to defend your right to your opinion; how you can take offense to anything what I wrote is beyond me.
