Ah, you jumped the gun on Planescape: Torment a bit. There's an enhanced edition now.
stuff like this is always the same with "older" people. you only need to look at what most adults in their 50's and 60's think is unreasonable behaviour and a problem with society, but go back to when they were that age and they will of generally done worse, but back in their time you just got a smack round the ear from a copper and told to sod off.
this is the biggest problem with society they look on the past with blinkers and ignore the fact that what happened back in the even the 80's wouldn't be allowed today. or an even closer example Friends a much loved comedy goes up on Netflix and people are slating it for fat shaming and other stuff, honestly when did people get so sensitive? this is why I would actually go the other way, with how sensitive people are getting now, you actually have a greater chance of offending people and a company getting slated or protested again, so if anything I would say the louder group is actually way more prudish than the old generations.
most only act as if they understand because it has became cool to stick up for minority groups and that is why nearly every day on news sites there is some random person pointing out something is offensive that pretty much no one else in the world would notice. like the complaint lego is sexist because sets in blue boxes are superheroes and city building, while sets in pink boxes are stuff like salons and such, we ignore the fact that no where does it say boy or girl on either box, now isn't the person complaining being the one causing the problem as they are using blue means boy and pink means girl.
so yeah that's my rant over, but I would honestly say sex in games now would offend more than it would of 15-20 years ago.
SJW's will hang you out to dry for it (Or worse), but you're not wrong. Was he publicly reprimanded for it then? Did it impede his career or what he achieved for the industry? It's ridiculous. Make no mistake, that type of behavior is disgusting and does not belong in the workplace under any circumstances, but to deny someone an award based on something from a different era, especially when he didn't get in trouble for it then is completely asinine.
yes! If you
re going to allow us to skin it...then let us SKIN-IT!
How do you know he was trigger happy?
From the sound of article and other online reports it's an unfortunate situation of a homeowner surprising the swat team while they were setting up then not cooperating while the police are only able to operate on what they've been told (an apparent hostage situation).
That doesn't make it right. It just underscores how dramatic of an impact the internet has had on social attitudes and behaviours in a very short time.
I do not think he was trigger happy at all. In his mind he was going into a hostage situation. He took the opportunity presented to save people. Have you ever been in a situation, where you have to save hostages. Most likely he identified the target positively, and didn't want to take chances to see if he was armed, especially with the possibility of other victims in the house. The cop isn't trigger happy or at fault, he was doing his job and the one who called the swat on false pretenses should be given the cops sentence on top of his own.
