Racial slurs...have absolutely no place in a Big Fish game. Calling the policeman a "frog"? Seriously? Shame on you. 2 minutes in and we've deleted this game already. How disgusting.

French isn't a race.

Oh, bahaha. That's a good one.

Calling a French person a "frog" is a racial slur. Thanks for the attempt at a semantics lesson, but you really missed the point. If you haven't anything constructive to add, please just try another thread. Thanks.

In all fairness, Big Fish DID put a warning on the game of the graphic content, so maybe you should have heeded that warning?

I'm not even French but I found the term "frog" offensive.

Oh no, the politically correct gang are even here at Big Fish? It's getting that way that soon nobody will be allowed to talk for fear of offending some delicate soul. I am at least half way through this game and haven't been offended once. Try looking further than your noses, it's a great game. Grow up.
ps. I didn't notice the frog remark.

They use 'Yankee' further on in the game too!

Frog isn't so bad. It's like calling Americans 'Yankees', or Brits 'Limeys', or every Australian as 'Bruce' or 'Sheila' lol!

There are thousands of terrible racial slurs these days. I think people need to calm down a bit.

Puh-leese..this is just a game..I'm from the south and we are constantly referred to as "ignorant red-necks"..when did everyone start getting so offended over "words"??? If you don't like or are offended by the game than you did the right thing by deleting it. Personally I'm enjoying the game and hope to see more like it in the future..keep'em coming BF

How about the French not cooperating with the FBI agent because she is a woman....HELO-O-O-O-O...!!! I'm Polish and a blonde' and proud of it, even I make jokes about myself. I do make dumb Pollock blonde' comments often. Everyone, no matter what race you are, has dumb moments? That's what's wrong with this world, everything is politically correct, no one has a sense of humor anymore. Well, I'd rather be a dumb blonde', Pollock and have friends and family that I can laugh, and joke with and be happy than be, shriveled up and, sexually frustrated. If you can't laugh at yourself then you must be very lonely.

The comment is xenophobic, not racial.
I would say I find the sexist comments more offensive, but then I am not French. Both speeches go towards building the characters. I would not choose to make either comments and I was surprised, but not upset as it does carry the 'graphic' warning.

Hey Fishies,

I just want to pop in and remind everyone that this is a game forum for the game Art of Murder: Hunt for the Puppeteer. It's certainly okay to express your opinions about the game or frustrations with a game. Opinions can be heated in the game forums, especially when there is an explicit content warning, so let's stay on topic and address the subject matter of the game rather than specific users.

Happy gaming everyone,

-bfgZambezi

As one who once worked in law enforcement, now currently married to one in law enforcement, and a family with several members in law enforcement, I nor they take offense. It is a game! One thing a person learns real quick in law enforcement, is to grow thick skin. There are bigger issues in life to concern oneself with. Incidentally, this is a good game, but if some feel offended by it, then they should contact the actual game makers. For me, this is a silly conversation and I agree with another poster who stated we have become too politically correct. Don't private message me either, as I no longer read them or can get online in a timely manner to answer them. KEEP IT ON THE PUBLIC BOARDS.
