The N-word in videogames
March 4, 2009 7:45pm CST
People are tarting to add vulgarity in videogames. I can handle the f-word and the s-word...even the c-word....but I for one WILL NOT tolerate the frequent dropping of the n-bomb! Sure it's funny, sure it draws attention, it's like on South Park, when Randy was refered to as the N-guy just cause he thought it wa okay to push the N-word around. How your videogame developers feel if someone saw their game and started calling it "The N-Game". I just put this post up so I can earn more money. So please, just reply...or you can tell me to shut up. Either way, I want more earnings!

FYI telling people to respond because you "want more earnings" is a bad way of getting attention. However I too want more earnings so I'll respond :D I don't think there's anything wrong with the word itself (don't get mad yet, an explanation is coming). I think that "bad words" are only bad while they're being used badly. Think about how different the perception of the word "bloody" is from the US to England. So while I think many people use the N-word in a hateful manner, and they shouldn't, there is nothing wrong with the word itself. And by incorporating it into our everyday language it will lose its meaning (and then some racist **** somewhere will probably create a new word that'll catch on and replace the N-word).
