What's wrong with the Hitman: Absolution trailer?

Postby Chorge » 31 May 2012, 16:28

this is uniquely amazing. combining the game i am most exited about with the things i most hate in video games. i am so in rage mode i got into a pointless youtube comment flame war for the first time in my life.

to quote John Walker from rockpapershotgun.com : "But there we go – the sexual fantasy of chaste women revealing their sexuality, immediately before being murdered, is there for us all to enjoy."

My problem with the trailer is that it just doesn't seem to fit the tone of this Hitman game.

If this was in Saints Row The Third or Lollipop Chainsaw then I wouldn't bad an eye as these games are silly, OTT and clearly tongue in cheek.

As for the supposed 'sexism' aspect of the trailer, I imagine no fuss would be made if it was a woman unleashing all that violence on a group of men, nor would a fuss be made if said scene appeared in a Tarantino movie.

Nothing IMO. It was just in the vein of a daft B-movie, I'm not sure we'd of been having this debate if it was Lara croft killing a group of male gimps disguised as priests.
