For example, there's the old trope of using the brutal death of a child (usually female), to move some guy's story arch forward (looking at you too, Call of Cthulhu). Now, TDD, AMFP and CoC are some of my favorite games ever, but they still had some elements that made me raise an eyebrow.
Hyper-sexualized elements and the use of rape, usually for the same purposes annoy me, as well.

Please elaborate.

Mostly this:

The rest of the article isn't really relevant to the topic, but the section I linked is.
Sorry I don't have time for a expanded explanation, but if you want I will when I get the time.

I understand what you're saying and I agree, but I just fail to see how Amnesia: TDD and AMFP did any of the the things mentioned in the article. You never got to see the scenes where Daniel tortures the woman/women in the game, so there's no way to no if it was in any way sexualized.
