While Penny-Arcade can be an offensive comic on occasion, there is one comic in particular that people have found extremely offensive. That comic would be the above picture one entitled, “The Sixth Slave”. Many people were offended by the use of the word rape, seeing this as a rape joke, and glorifying rape culture. I don’t see it that way. In fact, I see it as being the opposite, using the horror of rape to drive home the fact that when you play a video game, taking the role of a savior and hero, rarely does the player actually care about the NPCs beyond how much experience they will get them. How many times have you played Wow or some other MMO, and just ran past a bunch of chained up prisoners or slaves, that you completely had in your power to save, and just ignored.
