What offends you in a game?

The recent flap about Resident Evil 5 being racist got me thinking about how people can be offended by anything. So it got me curious. Is there something in a video game that offends you?

Me, it's when a female character just does nothing as she's kidnapped, even when she has plenty of opening to punch the kidnapper in the face. I guess it's a cultural thing in Japan (since it's games made in Japan that have the most of these), but there's a difference between not making a scene and just defending yourself. This isn't just on feminist grounds.* It's also on grounds that it's a horrible cliche, and it's a bad sign the game is in idiot plot mode.

* I'm a guy, but I think a woman should have the right to kick as much ass as a man does. ;)

I have a Wii and a DS, and my brother has a 360. I don't have anything against the PS3. We just can't afford one yet, but I do want a PSP when I can.
