“We’re making a game about the cycle of violence and we’re making a statement about violent actions and the impact they have on the character that’s committing them and on the people close to them”
This quote goes in line with where I think/hope they're going with the character of Ellie and it might not be pretty.
The leftist mainstream media are a bunch of pansies, especially when it comes to violence against women, even if the characters performing the violent acts are also women. A man, especially a white male character, getting his head ripped off? Perfectly fine. It's so f'ing stupid and these idiots need to stop being listened to. At least Druckmann seems to be standing his ground on this and TLoU Part II sounds like it will be just like the first game. I always said TLoU wasn't fun but I'm happy it was made and it's one of my favorite games of all-time.
Resident Evil has been right there with Mortal Kombat pushing the envelope of video game violence since forever. It's just that technology is so much better now than in the 90s. But I remember back in 96 people calling RE 1 'grotesque.' I say if you don't like it's that's fine but that doesn't mean it shouldn't exist like a lot of people love to scream about. I wish somebody in a position of influence would tell these people to grow a pair and if they don't like it, don't play it. That freaking simple.
I have no problem with people who don't like violent media. I'm good friends with a lot of people like that. The difference between them and these 'journalists?' My friends don't scream 'I don't like it and neither should anybody else! BAN THIS GAME!'
@Gamer83 I'm ok with it. I'm just surprised anybody even remembered the violence in TLOU2 if they stuck around a little longer and watched that RE2 trailer.
I do recall the trailers from last year generating controversy, but to me it was more the combination of the child abuse in Detroit and the over the top violence in TLOU2 (which I thought was Days Gone Monday night) that made the entire show seem so dark that was the problem more than either 1 alone.
Gotta be honest. I didn't even watch the TLoU Part II stuff, I'm putting myself on a media blackout for it because I don't want anything spoiled before playing it. Due to that, I have no idea how violent the footage actually was, but having played the first game, probably a safe bet it was pretty nasty.
I didn't think RE 2 was any different than what I expected so if that's causing controversy I'd be surprised. Everybody knows what RE is.
