This is what happens when gamers give Law & Order: Special Victims Unit the controller

, | Games

Well, you finally did it folks. All your pointless social media arguing and bluster regarding Anita Sarkeesian, Zoe Quinn, and everything else involved in the sorry GamerGate affair attracted the attention of NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The episode Intimidation Game handled the subject with all the subtlety and care of B.J. Blazkowicz redecorating a Nazi bunker. Mouzam Makkar, playing “Raina Punjabi” a feminist game designer, creates a video game called Amazonian Warriors. This spurs hardcore gamer fans of Kill or Be Slaughtered, a goofy take on shooters, to harass, kidnap, and torture her. The top moment of the episode was probably when master thespian, and real-life fan of Call of Duty, Ice-T described Amazonian Warriors to his fellow detectives.

I read on Kotaku that it’s better than Civ V with the ‘Brave New World’ expansion pack.

It’s all about ethics in potboiler television.
