@VelociBlade: Thanks for the suggestions on the webcomics. P.S. You may want to leave phrases like "@someone'" if you want to make a post on months-old blog in GameSpot. The blog owners will automatically be notified of your post in their Inbox. As for yours, I actually scoured through my blog to see if there are anything missing due to data corruption/decay/atrophy and I came upon your comment.
I believe in the freedom of expression, but only if it is tampered with wisdom and thought. I am sure many of us would think the same as well.
Webcomics are a form of expression. Gamer webcomics are a subset of these, orienting around humorous portrayals (or outright parodies) of digital games, the people who made them, the people who market them and the people who play them. Unfortunately, while some webcomics do so in a good-spirited manner, others resort to banality and carnal jokes.
Reading VG Cats from comic #1 to the last sapped half my spirit. At first, the cute cat characters and the oddball felinization of game characters attracted me, and then I made a mistake of reading it to the latest strip. There can only be so much gore in every strip, dubious themes and profanities in the same panels as the very cute characters are in before a mentally stable reader would have to take Prozac and aspirin.
(A not-so-mentally stable one would be taking alchohol next. Or editing out the heads of the characters so they can be made as avatar pictures.)
Penny Arcade used to have such crap, until the authors wisened up and gutted such themes from their webcomic to concentrate on (making fun of) developments in the gaming industry, games market and other related sectors, which is what gamer webcomics ought to focus on.
Miscarriage and abortion both exist, and I believe it is not taboo to debate about them. The former is a consequence of medical/physiological complication brought about by trauma, while the latter is a medical procedure that has yet to have any formally defined objective, other than the morally dubious goal of foetal removal. However, making comics and jokes about them is actually a mark of bad taste.
Subjecting game characters to grievous harm or virtual death when they, in the context of their original (fictional) existence, are not supposed to suffer as such, is also a very hideous parody.
Making violent and bloodthirsty mockeries of otherwise benign, cute, peaceful and/or noble characters is actually the worst of sacrilegous acts, no matter how humorous they are. Yes, personally, I laughed at these as well - before straightening myself out.
Making another strip with similarly horrible content afterwards in a mark of defiance against the torrent of reactionary abuse is also evidence of bad taste. Sure, one can say that arguments over the Internet is futile, but not when its users can encourage boycotts or take more active action, such as virus-driven blockades, digital vandalism and other forms of cyber-crime, if they are offended beyond rational limits.
The most recent strip of VG Cats, the one where the protagonist is shown making the choice of turning Megaton into a crater and has apparently chosen to join the Tunnel Snakes Gang in the game Fallout 3, is quite a clear indicator of the direction of the authors' moral compass. For your information, there were other Fallout 3 parodies, most of which involve fun-poking of the V.A.T.S. system and the apparent hatred of mutants prevalent in the game. None so far actually touched on the subject of nuking the aforementioned town.
As the Greek philosopher Plato would imply, the notion that freedom of choice and of expression should be given to anyone, even the most destructively idiotic of persons, ought to be rejected.
However, we should also keep in mind the adage "live and let live". While webcomics with dubious content (and authors) such as VG Cats and Eegra have been running for a long time and whose style has probably been set in concrete, the objective purveyor of web-content should continue to monitor said media. Penny Arcade was initially quite terrible and offensive - it perhaps even pioneered the act of hideous parodying - but it soon developed into a (quite) responsible (& hilarious) expression of opinion that it is now.
