This Week's Most Misogynistic Game in the World: Golden Axe: Beast Rider

I haven’t played the game myself (and definitely won’t… ever), but according to GameSpot reviewer Chris Watters:

[Golden Axe: Beast Rider] is definitely M for Mature. You’ll see, um, the premise is basically all of Tyris’s sisterhood is slaughtered, and so throughout the game you’ll just see like, you know, naked women’s torsos just hanging from trees and stuff like that.

(The Hotspot, 10/28/2008)

Oversexualized women are an unfortunate commonality in many games. Generalized violence against women is somewhat expected in violent games. But sexualized violence against women? No fucking thank you.

Golden Axe: Beast Rider–this week’s most misogynistic game… in the wooorld!

(Perhaps I’ve been watching too much Countdown lately?)

  1. So a classic video game franchise is revived as a disgusting gornfest? *sigh* That’s modern-day Sega for you.

    I sure can’t wait for next week’s game!
