Dear Anita “I’m a games expert” Sarkeesian, if you haven’t noticed by the title, game is about a person whose job is being a hitman. And people who have job title “hitman” on their business card tend to use brutal methods to eliminate their targets. Blades, poison, piano strings, bullets from sniper rifle, bullets from a silenced pistol, you name it. If you want to kill someone, you have to disrupt their critical natural bodily functions. Best way to do that is by inflicting severe direct or indirect damage. Maybe you should read a book or two about biology and human body anatomy instead of marketing and quasi feminism.
And here we have this self proclaimed gaming expert who gets all confused about the purpose and meaning of the game named Hitman…
Here’s a hint from dictionary…
1. a hired killer, especially a professional killer from the underworld.
That’s like being all confused and offended because game “Need for Speed” doesn’t contain any gardening mechanics (other than doing donuts with your Porsche in someone’s freshly mowed front lawn). Or how a game named “Command & Conquer” doesn’t contain any clothes fashion and styling mechanics. Or how game “Soldier of Fortune” has no cute and colorful fluffy characters wandering across colorful rainbow worlds.

It’s almost like the mechanics of stealthily killing people are integral to the storytelling of a game about a stealthy killer.
