Hey Anthony, whatcha wrinting? Really loved Jack as a villain, and look forward to more writing from anthony. Was a goode talk too. Would have been nice to hear the questions though.

Borderlands 2 has sold over 12 million copies and has 97% positive reviews on steam, its a massive success. GG neckbeards are just hating on it because they don't like Anthony Burch. The game is great and so is he, get over it you lost, everyone hates GG

Mustafa Berk Bacaksız You do realize that Anthony Burch is a literal cuckold who constantly talks about his pathetic sex life on Twitter while making shit games pandering to the third wave Sarkeesian style feminist right? He brought this on himself.

+Mustafa Berk Bacaksız Dude, the youtube comment section is usually stupid as fuck; giving their "opinion" off of some inside shit you'll never understand lest you delve deep into some precise piece of info that would take way much more time to find than what its worth.

Where is Conker's bad fur day when it comes to top game's that made you laugh. Nintendo 64 had a lot of comical game's like south park or space station silicon valley. Now we have stick of truth but that was not out at the time of this video's creation. Now we look forward to The fractured but whole I like super hero based comedy more then game of thrones or lord of the rings mid evil time comedy but they are both very fun theme's. I tend to take none serious game more seriously for they tend to be more fun an replay able with enjoy able humor.

That comment about dying versus comedy belongs to Edmund Gwenn, who played St. Nicholas in "Miracle on 34th Street," and they were indeed his last words. Truly a man for all seasons, and an epigrammatist to the last. Insert Anthony Burch joke here.

How? He encourages more well written female characters in games, how's that being an SJW? And how is that a bad thing, it's really just logical from a business standpoint, as more than 50% of the population are women, and nearly 50% of gamers are women.

I know it's coming from the right place, but his comment on censoring rape jokes just doesn't sit right with me. So you don't want to make fun of rape victims or rape or whatever. But the whole game makes fun of killing people. It's the same fucking thing. You're just putting rape above murder. There is no point in saying one is more terrible than the other. It doesn't matter. It both extremely awful. So either do rape jokes or censor everything that even has the slightest chance of involving anything with victims. You can't and you shouldn't. The rape joke he mentioned is in no way offensive. Offensive would mean that is makes fun of rape victim like saying it's their own fault for getting in that kind of situation. But depicting someone as a rapist? That's terrible and doing the same with a murderer is not? People really got their heads turned in recent years and feel like if only one person is offended by something, it is wrong and has to change. News flash: Anyone can be offended by literally anything. It is just a form of opinion. Of course, you should never be deliberate in hurting someone, but taking things to the extreme and making fun of it is part of comedy. And if you are not okay with that, it is fine. But you should never try to demonize people who find it funny or entertaining. I really like Anthony and share most of his opinions and even respect the ones I don't personally share. But this is just something that irks me and I feel like he lost his ground too fast and just converted to a new opinion just out of fear of hurting people or being the bad guy. Just like he enjoys putting trans/gays/whatever into his games just to be inclusive I also enjoy offensive humor just for being as offensive as possible. Not as to be mean or hate on other people but to enjoy the wrongness of it all. There is humor in it and outright saying it is terrible doesn't sit wright with me.
locke89 (4 years ago)
Yeah, I don't want any jokes that have rape victims as the punch line, though I don't get the vibe from Anthony that he would be okay with general rape jokes being used carefully. At least not from what I see on his Twitter. I remember the whole dickwolves thing. PA clearly reacted in the worst way possible but I stand by the first comic. I don't think makes light of rape. They wanted to used the worst possible way someone could be tortured to highlight the morality problem. The joke comes not from someone being raped but the outlandish imagery that are the dickwolves themselves. I get why people would not like that but is their right to not look at it or complain. But in no way should PA ever pull that strip as it is their right to publish it.
Pen That Doesn't Write (4 years ago)
I agree with nearly everything you said in your last comment, but I feel that the context in which Anthony was speaking is important to understand. I can't remember all too clearly and my connection is too slow for me to go back and check, but I believe Anthony was responding to a question about the Dickwolves fiasco. In case you haven't heard of this, long story short, Penny Arcade once ran a comic where a character being raped by "dickwolves" was the setup for a joke about morality in MMORPGs. A lot of people objected to this, as casual use of rape in humour is one of the many, many things that propagates a culture where rape is seen as no big deal. Penny Arcade responded to this by running another comic that sarcastically apologized for turning their readers into rapists, which further showed how little they understood about why the content was objectionable in the first place. And it was written in such a dismissive tone that it was actually a lot more insulting than the original comic. Then things got even worse: when anti-rape advocates started to voice concern about Penny Arcade's actions, Penny Arcade started selling Dickwolf memoribilia, and fans even started this awful 'Team Rape' movement. Women who complained about the merchandise received a terrifying number of rape threats. Even some of the anti-rape advocates got hostile at this point and messaged PA's Mark Krahulik, asking him if he'd find it funny if they murdered his wife and kids. Basically, it was _fucked_ up. And after a lot of a back and forth on the issue, Mike Krahulik still doesn't seem to know why their original comic was so problematic. At one point he even went so far as to say that he felt pretty good to support rape culture. So I am so, _so_ glad, for creators like Anthony just being completely damn clear that they won't stand for crap like this, and that they're definitely not going to contribute to it. He didn't say that there should be no jokes about rape at all, he said that he hates jokes that mock rape survivors. And I'm glad he did. See, videogames are such a mess right now. There are deeply discrimanatory undercurrents in what has now become a universal medium, and this has created huge rifts among gamers, journalists and creators. We live in a world where _everyone_ plays videogames, be you a woman or gay or trans or bi... and yet for the most part a lot of people in the community still continue to pretend these people don't exist, and subject the ones who do to ridiculous stereotypes. And worse still, they continue to punish the people who demand that they are included, and that the issues they face on a daily basis are not used as the butts of cheap jokes.  Many, many videogames are still horribly alienating to a large section of the people who play them, and the people who call attention to this are continually abused and threatened. So writers like Anthony aren't including well-written female characters and sexual minorities because they find it 'enjoyable'. They are including them because it _has to be done_. These marginalized groups are as part of society as anyone else and the fact that they are treated like they don't exist in so many IPs is _extremely_ unsettling. Anthony isn't doing something groundbreaking or radical, he's just one of many creators trying, in some small way, to bring the values of the industry to a  point that isn't completely awful. In the very same vein, he dismisses comedy surrounding rape, refuses to take part in it and disapproves of those who do. That isn't censorship, in any shape or form. That is him recognizing how skewed a public mindset is, and working to ensure that he doesn't contribute to it. And that is extremely admirable, if you ask me. PS: Sorry about how late this was, and how long this got. I have a lot of things to say and no real place to say them, so yeah. Thank you for being so civil as well. 
locke89 (4 years ago)
@Pen That Doesn't Write That is actually the first response from that side of the argument I really, really enjoy. Thanks for being civil and not aggressive in your writing. Yes, I understand that rape is a more complex thing and that our culture still has to evolve to better understand it, prevent it and, of course, encourage victims to come forward and not feel guilty - which is easier said than done. It is quite similar to child abuse in that regard from a psychological standpoint. Child abuse is also something that society is more aware of compared to adult rape. Maybe that leads to it as a topic more people can joke about. And I mean jokes in the form from Sarah Silverman, which rather helps as it makes fun of the poor circumstances rather than the victims. As I said in my first post. You never should go out of your way to hurt people and rape is certainly one of the most difficult topics. But I feel Anthony is of the opinion that even mentioning it in some form of joke is terrible and hurtful, and that is something I just don't agree with. One of my favorite rape jokes (that sounds terrible) is from Louis CK when he talks about a guy who hates Boston, because his mother was raped by every single person living in that city. He takes it so far and it elvolves in something so outlandish (to the point people get annoyed when they find out they have to rape that old lady in a month), that it isn't about rape anymore but just the dumbest way a person can be hurt by an entire city.
Pen That Doesn't Write (4 years ago)
An important point a lot of you are missing is that our opinion and response to murder is actually pretty solid. If you're in the sort of civilized community I'm assuming you're in because you're playing videogames in the first place, then the way people in that community respond to murder generally doesn't contribute to it, or trivialize it. You might laugh about blowing a Psycho's head off but you still take death in real life seriously. Rape is not that simple. A large section of most modern societies still tend to respond very, very badly to sexual violence. Victim blaming is horrifyingly common, and the stigma and guilt inflicted on victims is part why so few even report rape in the first place. And rape and sexual violence is a lot more likely to happen to the average person than murder, and it may be as common as it is because a lot of people, in the media and in day to day conversation, trivilalize the shit out of it, and that's if they're not reinforcing it. There's also so little known by people about such common a problem; understanding of consent and respecting the autonomy of women and accepting that men can be and often are victims too is *not* something you often see, and a lot of movies and songs and books add, however subtly, to a culture where sexual violence is more excusable than it ought to be. That's what rape culture is. And if you're providing entertainment, you should be out to improve lives, to help people enjoy themselves and have a good time. You should *not* be inflicting pain. So I for one think it's great that people like Anthony are sensitive to these issues and understand that creators should *not* be adding to the damage. Simply put, laughing at Brick's 'I've killed a lot of people' line isn't going to make you take a serial killer a less seriously. But making a funny rapist guy is trivializing a problem that already gets trivialized enough in real life. Another reason murder flies a lot more easily in media is that it can be blown up to a point where it no longer resembles its real life counterpart. More realistic depictions will definitely be more controversial than the cartoonish stuff you see in Borderlands; take, for instance, the No Russian mission and GTA's torture sequence. This cannot be done with such a complex thing as rape, and certainly can't with the complex way society responds to it. Both crimes may be awful, but one of them *can* conceivably have less complicated circumstances, in fiction at least. That said, it *is* possible, if you are very skilled and careful, to make a joke about even the sketchiest topics without hurting anyone and triviliazing the subject. Bonus points if you actually offer some insight into it. Sarah Silverman's 'I need more rape jokes! Who's gonna complain about it? Rape victims? They hardly report rape.' joke surprisingly, given the source, falls into that category. But again. You have to do it, really, *really* well. Not every writer or comic can pull that off so it definitely should not be attempted just for the sake of it. I do believe that comedians should not have shackles forced on them and that creators should not be censored or dictated to. I also believe that going out of your way as a creator to cause pain is a shitty thing to do. And I think it's important to think about the kind of message the things we watch and play and read give out, as well as what they say about the people who made them, and the people who enjoy them. And if what is taken away from them can have a negative effect on a society, it's important that we recognize that and move to change our mindsets. It's a good thing. Really. tl;dr: These things are a lot more complex than we'd like think, and it's good that creators recognize that.

@Laominos He makes money doing what he's doing and he's alos hired by a AAA studio. That makes him a professional whether you like it or not :)
@27sevenSToFo A person who bases his stories in 80% Reddit memes and 20% actual writing, which seems like shit wrote by a teenager then I certainly wouldn't call them neither creative nor proffesional.
