EA's "SimSex" Drawing Controversy Among Gaming Community
The game, SimSex, allows the users to play simulated consenting adults who indulge in simulated sexual activities.
But the real controversy stems from EA's union with Activision, a competitor of theirs, to develop the title.
"People are objecting to this 'SimSex marriage'," observes Game Informer writer Jeff Olsen, in a recent piece. "They claim that the union should be within the company, that controversial practices like this are unlawful, and should be banned. But what is the point if the union doesn't cause any real harm?"
In related news, a march is being proposed by an organization called the Gamer Rights Movement to protest recent developments.
