Sorry for the harsh expression, but that is sheer stupidity. I don't need to get beaten up to enjoy a nice week-end with my girlfriend. If you had to grow up getting bullied or whatever every day, then it's sad (and I say that very sincerely). Unfortunately, pretending it's the way it should be for everyone anyway is only a bad way of protecting yourself from the reality of you not having deserved such treatments. The only productive way to deal with this (that is, if you do want to get over it) is accepting this truth. Hiding behind the self-induced lie that "this is the way everyone should experience childhood / life" is not the way to go.Not that "good" should ever be normal. A world without bullies or violence in any form would the worst world imaginable. Its the bad parts and people in the world that makes the good ones good.
On another note, I haven't played the game (and don't plan to), but i'm fine with it being on the shelves. Let people decide what they want to buy or not.
