A barely coherent rant about Far Cry 3

If you’re a gamer it’s likely you've heard of, or even played, Far Cry 3. It’s been well advertised, well reviewed, and it’s hard to avoid seeing it on websites, blogs and forums (which is okay as the gameplay is awesome). However, a few criticisms have been thrown around, mainly due to it’s use of lazy racial stereotypes and casual man-rape, and while those complaints are all well and good, my grudge is a little more basic and it’s do with the villain (or sub-villain) of Rook Island, Vaas. Spoilers ahead.
