Because the only woman is singled out for rape because of her gender. The men aren't being murdered because they're men. That's the difference. It doesn't mean it has to be banned, or that murder is ok, but it is why it sits so uncomfortably for me.|
And it shouldn't need pointing out this often, but big burly, brainless men are not the same thing as weak, sexualized, objectified women. Men in games are empowered by their muscles and guns. They kill their enemies and rescue their damsels with them.
Genuinely the only jock character I can think of who was held back by this was Chris in RE1. His inability to play piano or read chemical formula got him into a heap of shit that Rebecca had to pull him out of, and Jill just side stepped all together.
