I semi-watched the horrific Video Game Awards on Spike TV last night and well, you men should be appalled at what Spike TV thinks is entertaining to you (cuz apparently only men play video games). The show featured a porn star undressing down to see-through skivvies and talking about getting with a virgin, a segment with WWF wrestlers "wrestling", scantily clad women everywhere and lots of hard rock music that was unlistenable. Spike TV must think male gamers are extremely immature. Yuck.

Oh, and some awards were thrown in, whoopty doo, I dont even know what game won game of the year, couldnt stand to watch anymore.

The irony is that the majority of the shows haven't changed...

I agree Shan, Spike TV makes women look like trash, it's SOOOOO offensive! But of course the ladies that are on that show ARE trash, but they make it seem like all girls are like that, it makes me sick! I was watching video game awards on another channel once ( I am a huge gamer) and it had this porn star lady on there and she was talking about doing a voice for a game and stuff, all of the women on there were porn stars it was sooooo annoying. It wasn't as bad as what you were takling about though. That makes me sick how some guys like watching stuff liek that. All I can say is the guy I marry aint even gunna think about watching something like that! hahaha!

Hi Mel http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
I was looking forward to this award show, but it was such trash. Spike TV, though, does offer some good shows, but it was so way off the mark to the point of offensive regarding the VGAs. It was obvious to me that Spike TV pretty much thinks that all gamers are 16-year-old, skateboarding, porn-loving nitwits who are only going to watch the VGAs if Jenna Jameson co-hosts in a skimpy dress.

Unfortunately that kind of things is what appeals to most neanderthal men :rolleyes: I personally think it's disgusting & degrading to women.

Thanks Mel http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif but I hope you're wrong! ;)

Hi PSone. How're things? I hope you have a good holiday http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Yeah I agree with you PSOne, it is degrading to women. We have some good guys here on the forum. Gonga and Webhed are two of them, of course there are more too, but those are two I can name off the top of my head lol.

Right then; let me get this straight.

There was a show on television featuring;

Almost naked porn stars wearing see-through skimpies and talking about sex.

Hard rock music.

Bikini clad girls everywhere.

Almost naked porn stars wearing see-through skimpies and talking about sex.

Absolutely outrageous!!

As a male I feel downright ashamed and embarressed...................................

personally i dont care whats shown on TV!
If women want to appear on TV in skimpy little dresses whats the harm? its the way they make a living.
And how is it degrading to women? just coz they appear on tv with a skimpy dress etc.
Have you seen the amount of skin care product adverts on tv that feature naked (yet well hidden) women on them? whats the differance?

Sounds a bit like the Man Show. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif Except without the Beer and whatever else. :rolleyes: I don't really like those kinds of shows anyway. So I wouldn't know too much about it. The VGA sounds like it was a real SLEEZE fest. Too bad Video Games have to be dragged down into the gutter like that. :mad: With the exception of GTA vc. :rolleyes: ....Since it's already there.

I'm more of a 'Retro (Arcade) Gamer' actually. And of course Raiding Tombs will always be fun. ;)

Here's my take on the situation....

That show was embarassement to gaming not to mention hardcore gamers(like me). IMO, basically none of those titles deserved and award. Better yet, SEGA should had some awards given to them in the catagory for Best Animation(VF:Evo),Best Fighting Game(VF:Evo), and Most Addictive(VF:Evo)-
Regarding the porn star thing,it wasn't need...

Unfortunately that kind of things is what appeals to most neanderthal men I personally think it's disgusting & degrading to women.For someone thats been defending porn, I find this comment interesting

Discussion of a controversial topic is one thing, personal attacks are another. Particularly bigoted ones. Please refrain from name-calling and personally attacking other members Morgan.

I was trying to explain to our resident pop-tart that a movie that looks at the porn industry does not contain porn itself. If you'd like to impress said tart why don't you just bed her already. Isn't that impressive to the men of today? See how many you can line up and knock down?

If you'd like to try having a word war with me, please do it via PM's. And while I may be gay, I am not a cross-dresser so no, I won't hit you with my handbag. I don't hit children anyway.

OK. You obviously want to make something of this, but you're not mature enough to take this away from the public forum. So I'm just going to ignore your pathetic excuses for insults while you belt them out. :rolleyes:
Have a great day!

Wow, some one is arguing with PSOne about how he is gay and it's not me!? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif Woa, that's a shocker!!! lol. I am not going to bash him/her like I used to, because all that will do is get you banned, and I guess it isn't a very nice thing to do. So how about the both of us work on being a little nicer shall we Morgan? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif Oh and PSOne I hope this post didn't offend you,because I don't want to do that and I don't want to start any arguments. So sorry if this was offensive.

i kinda...sort of know that "ban" feeling, im hoping, really hoping it dont happen, oh and thanks for your support, i honestly dont mind gays, its only when they blatantly flaunt it, and keep bringing it into conversations when there is no need to. Other than that i tolerate "them"...

Melonie... I'm surprised at comments like yours, even if I've heard it so many times. And to Morgan, he sounds like an... well... so I'm ignoring him altogether. I can't believe you would "high-five" an idiot.

I'm sure PSone did not CHOSE to be gay. I used to be like you, against gays, but I realized that as a minority living in a pretty much a racist part of Arizona, I was being completely and utterly stupid. If it makes them happy, why should you care? Is their gay lifestyle threatening you or your religion in some way?

For the record, don't hide the fact that you're being prejudiced, discriminatory, and hateful by saying that gays should have the freedom to "choose" but that you disagree with the decision.

PSone, I agree, the VGA was completely degrading. I'm surprised I found a whole thread on that in here.

Being a person who thinks that homosexuality is just as normal as straight relationships I totally agree with you http://www.click-smilies.de/sammlung0903/grinser/grinning-smiley-003.gif Everyone should be allowed to express how they feel, whether those feelings are directed towards those of the same sex or not!!!!

Why is every one getting offended at what I said? :confused: I didn't think I said any thing wrong, I just don't like to se eMOrgan get ganged up on like that because both PSOne and Morgon were in the wrong there, not only Morgan. I said before that I mean no offense at all to PSOne and if he wants to be gay then I think he has that right and I am not going to try to change him, but I aint gunna say I agree with it when I don't. I meant no offense to any one, and I am quite shocked at your reactions.

I don't want an argument, but you continually put down my lifestyle (which, by the way, is not a choice made by me) and then you say "Oh! Sorry, Didn't mean to be offensive. I'm so innocent and sweet" I think you need to keep your mouth shut on matters that are above and beyond your level of maturity.

Thankyou to Marianne, swinfan, Bumb1ebee & tazmine for seeing the wrong here and not conforming 'anti-homo patrol'.

I believe we have seen Morgan here before, several times under a different alias http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

I do think Morgan has been here before as well, one too many times.
