This is the point, PeteRock, where you're supposed to say, "Well you know...the only thing better than a virtual handjob is a real one." Then arch one eyebrow suggestively as you point towards your member.
I left that part out of my story.
The response was, "Pfffft. You gave up your ability to negotiate the moment you said, 'I do.'"
Virtual it is, then.
Now that I've had an evening to cool off and move beyond our disagreement on semantics and the difference between criticism and censorship, I feel we can go back to participating in common conversations as online friends rather than bitter rivals (we all inevitably disagree on something). I don't advocate censorship and see the point you were trying to make, and I'd like to just go back to discussing the game.
I concur. It was a fun diversion while waiting for the game to come out, but it's not an important enough issue to me to distract from actually playing it. And as always, I respect PeteRock as both a friend and a flaming metrosexual.
I don't think our opinions differ much at all. I am not at all in favor of censorship, but I just found virtual hand-jobs to be a bit silly. Regardless, now that we have made such a big deal out of it, even my wife is anxious to see what the fuss is about. Now I think I will most likely find far more humor in the situation because of our discussion, and that humor will be magnified when we show our friends just how "detailed" the game is.
"Wow, you can steal cars?"
"Just wait to see what else
you can do."
