As someone who may someday become an adoptive parent, I'm offended by Neal Stapel's incredibly thin skin. What kind of overreaction are you planning for the day when your daughter steps on the school bus and discovers that kids like to tease each other?
I assume he'll sue them and their families, obviously

man, people take things too personally. If he paid any attention to the game at all, he should've known that Wheatley is a total moron and not to be taken seriously. Also, the joke is terrible. Shouldn't he think to himself that perhaps he is there so the girl has a parent? Eventually, we're gonna have to take jokes out of video games, with the direction we're going.

I guess getting shot to death by turrets isn't as bad as being made fun of for being adopted

I'm sure someone will try to make a lawsuit out of this.

The parent adopts a kid, forces the kid to play portal 2.
Kid does, reaches that "adoption" part, doesnt get it, plays through just fine. Foster parent needs to explain why the line was offensive.

Now that's bad parenting.

He should ask his daughter whether or not she gives a damn. If she doesn't he should be court ordered to shut up.

Is it news worthy? Probably not. But hey, most things aren't these days. And this story making the news probably multiplied the problem by a billion.
Thats when it falls on the PARENTS to RESEARCH a game before they buy it


Portal 1 was FULL of adoption jokes.

Portal was full of jokes, full stop.

Side note:

That's the first ingame footage of Portal 2 I've seen. What a POS, they've killed it.

I haven't bought Portal 2 yet, but I have played it a bit on my friends computer. The first time I saw chell's reflection I said "Damn, she got fat". I think the overweight jokes are fair. The adoption teasing isn't really funny, but it fits with the story well enough, and it's not really in bad taste, I don't see a problem with it. If you're offended by it then you're probably offended by a whole bunch of crap and you should be ignored/made fun anyways.
