Quote from: winkio on October 25, 2014, 07:00:46 pmI don't know how big of a deal this is. There are already certain cutscenes/scenarios in modern day shooters/dark action games with similar interactions, but on a much smaller scale. There are also a number of movies with really intense, stomach turning scenes, as well as books, comics, blogs, etc. Not everyone who is into this type of stuff is a mass murder waiting to go on a killing spree. In fact, if you look at some of the recent events, the killers weren't really into this stuff, most were just normal people that either got into a fight over something or got into long term depression for one reason or another.That said, I think the game is trash, and nobody would even notice it if it weren't for the media coverage.
Quote from: WhiteRose on October 25, 2014, 10:34:38 pmAt the very least, I do think it is unfortunate that, whether or not the game is good, it provides ammunition to those who villainize gaming as a hobby.
Quote from: Ryex on October 26, 2014, 12:17:16 amas I understand it the core premise of the game (according to the developers) is "good old mindless violence". there is no story, no goal outside of killing as many people as you can and have fun doing it.

Quote from: Blizzard on October 27, 2014, 09:43:19 amSo torturing people is ok as long as it's not racist?
Quote from: Zexion on October 28, 2014, 12:20:53 amIsn't it a bit presumptuous to assume that we all "like" and/or accept the violence in GTA? If that's the argument the other side is making, they'd have to be sure that everyone was fine with violence in other games. Just because no one is making a "big deal" about it, doesn't mean that everyone is fine with it. GTA had it's own share of controversy back in the day. It's died down though as it's pretty much been the same shet in every game, senseless unrealistic rampage. This trailer takes it to a whole new level and it's really not hard to see why someone would be offended.

QuoteHello Extra Credits Team,I don't know if you already knew, but there is a new upcoming game that... well, just taking things a bit too far. I'm talking about Hatred. Here is a link to the trailer if you haven't seen it yet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytdEYapPXdYI'm a game developer myself and I've played and enjoyed many violent and gritty games over the years, but this is game just going too far IMO. The whole point of the game is murdering and torturing innocent people. In GTA you can do that, but it's not the main point. In Postal 2 you could do it, too, but it's still not the point of the game. It's even portrayed in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way and isn't taking itself too seriously. But Hatred looks different.I'm all for freedom of speech and expression, but the coming of this game is not a good thing. Of course I don't believe that it will cause any actual violence to happen, but there is simply something unsettling about this game. I think it's crossing the boundary of good taste and is insensible towards mass shooting victims and their families.In any case, I would love to see an episode about this game to see what you think and maybe about this issue in general. Because if this game is ok, then an Auschwitz Simulator would be ok, too. And that would be just insensible.
