"Kill the Faggot" pulled from Steam
« on: May 05, 2015, 01:41:40 PM »
A game called Kill the Faggot was pulled from Steam. And yes, the game is exactly what it sounds like.

Cue the straight, white angry male Redditors decrying the affront to free speech. It becomes really predictable after a while...

Silly faggots.....  Never mind your actual experience of going through life worrying about targeted violence against you because of who you are. A private business has no right to disassociate themselves from a disgusting product because AMUR'KA!
Og eigi leið þú oss ekki í trúgirni, heldur frelsa oss frá fáfræði. Amen.

Well... this is not even very good trolling on the part of the "developer". He didn't put in any effort, so I'm not prepared to take him seriously. Angry white male here, quite happy to see this "game" pulled. No speach issue detected.

Wow. This may be the most offensive thing I've seen since F.A.T.A.L.

It should have been a game to teach people about what else the bible calls a sin:

Is that a man wearing mixed fabrics? 20 points
He didnt wash his arms up to the elbows? 10 points
IS SHE EATING PORK STUFFED LOBSTER? 100 points!

I don't even understand how that game could have been approved in the first place.  This, from the same service that regularly censors anime boobs from "almost hentai" games.

Yeah, someone screwed up big-time. I'm just glad they pulled it, because I really like playing games on Steam. But if they had chosen to keep this I would have had to say bye-bye.
