Warning -- do not watch the above video without subjecting yourself to minor spoilers for God of War: Ascension.
As you may have heard, Adam Sessler recently played through God of War: Ascension, and was disgusted by a particular trophy, titled "Bros before Hos."
Around 6:50 into his review, Sessler describes the experience as "one of the most violent things I've ever seen in a video game," a scene where Kratos stomps a female enemy creature's face in and earns a trophy. He calls the event and trophy description a "gut-punch of misogyny," that sours the entire experience for him.
I can see the issue here right off the bat, but that's not the entire story. As you can see in the above video, not only does that character not die as a result of this confrontation, but the trophy's accomplishment might actually be based around another character that hands you an item, who stands up to that female creature.
Since Sony usually hands out trophies after major confrontations, there's no telling whether or not the trophy is specifically awarded for beating up the female character, or simply because of your male comrade's decision to defy her.
In any case, do you feel like Sony Santa Monica overstepped their boundaries, and should rename the trophy?
ChillyBilly Trubbish is the best Pokemon because he's basically a pile of trash. KeithTheGeek Woke up to find the qposts filled with favorite pokemon. I'm gonna be that guy and say his favorite is Charizard. Too lazy to go dig up a picture, but I don't have to. Yall already know what he looks like.Shinta CONTROVERSY: I'm playing Ninja Gaiden Black right now and the truth of the matter is that Ninja Gaiden 2 is the better game. The combat is just so much better, and the pacing is as well. NGB is still a 10/10 to me though. NGB's combat is just alot slowerSir Shenanigans Since I was a lad who actually followed Pokemon, Scyther was green and sharp and cut his way to my little heart, where he remains today.JohnSmith123 Hmm.

Parismio This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!Lawman Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.Gamemaniac3434 One of my personal favorite pokemon. taterchimp I had a rough night and I hate the fucking Eagles, manNiwannabe Okay, here's one last Fuck, Marry, Kill to determine the truest of waifus.
