Alt quote I could've put in to : "The real question is, why murder a women's rights activist NPC in RDR2, when you can pat your horse for 50 hours straight?"
The site says it made a mistake when it wiped videos of a women's vote campaigner being murdered.

Because, it's a rockstar video game? This is nothing new. Why are people shocked. It was the same for the first RDR. Also it's a video game. Let's ban any video where you can kill someone. I can kill random civilians in Hitman. Including women. Why aren't you shocked about that?

The deliberate targeting seemingly based on their political beliefs and turning it into a snuff film makes it seem a bit more sinister than killing an NPC who caught you robbing their house.

Also the same NPC over and over. That means the dude had a special save just so he could kill this one woman in multiple ways because she....wanted women to have the vote and is therefore an "annoying feminist". Cool. Seems reasonable.

I still stand by the point of its a video game, once again, when you guys play Hitman. There's always an NPC you guys attack (Rico? Sapienza) in like most vidoes. Because he had a disguise you guys need. How is this any different?

"Because he has a disguise you guys need." You just answered your own question. Killing this specific npc, a woman's rights activist, over and over again does not help him complete an in-game objective. He did it because he wanted to. Over and over again.

I know it could* mean somethin', and these days it likely might. Not to mention the general social climate when it comes to gender-based violence these days, BUT- I've killed kids in games before, as well as as random people. Does that mean I'm actually a psycho serial-kidkiller?

No but unless you’re singling put a specific kid or NPC that’s not just random or because they’re wearing I don’t know a weird hat is the issue. If it were a random npc even another random woman it wouldn’t be an issue. And no you’re not a psycho killer.

Well if he actually targeted the npc because of it speaking of women's rights, than of course it would be an issue, and of course he should get the hate.

Apperently she is really annoying and will verbally accost people so I think it makes it a little grey. But regardless no matter who it is it’s a bit excessive. And there are other annoying npc’s. And I do think she was signled out because it would bring attention.

Which is further grey because it brings in the component of if it’s just for attention alone because what she represents brings attention rather than attacking her because of what she represents. It’s hard to say which. And if it’s the former I have less of an issue with it...

Even if it’s still not a great thing to do. It’s hard to distinguish though so I don’t know.
