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."

Either way, my original point is that hiding behind "art" to push something vile is an overused, BS excuse and thatís weak and tired.

About as overused and tired as people pushing their moral judgments of content on others. Let's face it, society in general has it's own safeguards against content it finds too offensive and that is reached through the majority. I don't necessarily like it but the disadvantages of offensive artwork are far outweighed by the creativity and opportunities afforded to everyone else.

Na, the idea of being free to call it like you see in a non-authoritarian context it is apparently still so new most people don't even know it when they see it.

But now we're veering WAAAAAY OT so I'll let those who wish to hand wring and mutter over me to continue unabated.
