[LINK] Hitman Absolution: can't we discuss this like adults?

Rob Fahey discusses the frankly appalling trailer for Hitman: Absolution.

What has disturbed many people is that the Hitman trailer appears to strongly sexualise and fetishise not just its disposable female characters, but also the actual act of killing them.

People who cry “PC brigade!” and “radical commie feminists!” at the trailer for this game should take a long, hard look at themselves. I felt uncomfortable watching it the first time: second time, I felt plain sick.
