Halo 3: Homophobia Evolved (NSFW audio)


4:46 PM on 11.26.2007



 
Last week, our friend Flynn DeMarco over at Gaygamer.net told me about this video that one of his readers had submitted, and while I expected it to be bad, I didn't expect that it would be quite this bad. 
 
The aforementioned reader decided to create the gamertag "xxx GayBoy xxx" and jump into a game of Halo 3 to see what would happen. Given the nature of Xbox Live, it should come as no shock that the audio in the above vid is NSFW, but considering that none of these goons knew they were being recorded, the subsequent chatter ends up just NSF anybody. I'm straight as can be and I'm still horribly offended by it, so I can't imagine what kind of disgust the gay gaming community must be feeling right about now.
 
Upon receiving the video, Flynn contacted its creator with a few questions. Hit the jump to see what he had to say about the whole experience. 

When contacted, "xxx GayBoy xxx" had this to say:

Other than maybe a quick "hello" to the chat room or a request to "veto", I didn't ever say anything first or taunt anyone. What was said by these players was initiated by them with no provocation on my part. The vast majority of the times I wouldn't even respond back so the audio would be clear.

I had a lot more footage but the movie would have been a lot longer and I don’t have the time to edit all that. One thing you don’t see are the betrayals, I was shot by my own teammates. Most don’t want to party up with me, they even say "gayboy don’t party up", some even leave mid-game so they don’t have to play with me.

Flynn DeMarco follows up the original post on Gaygamer.net by saying:

Back when we were hacked, the story got around to various websites and the one question that many uninformed readers asked was "Why does there need to be a gay gaming website? Can't we all just be gamers? Why do they have to segregate themselves?" I think one viewing of this video will explain exactly why.

The whole thing just solidifies my preference for staying wihin my own friends list when I'm looking for some online play. It would be nice if Microsoft would add to their list of play zones on the XBL Gamer Profile (Pro, Underground, etc.) with a category for "Douchebag" so some of these guys' gamercards would be a little more accurate. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Flynn.
