I agree, art can and should explore difficult subjects. The thing is that we're talking specifically about an advertisement for a game. In advertising, you, A, want to give your audience a good idea of what the product they're purchasing will be like (as there will often be justifiable consumer revolt if the advertising doesn't give a good sense of what the full experience is like), but, more importantly (let's call this B), you also want to entice people to purchase your game. That's why film trailers and teasers often show off some of the best scenes and dialogue in a movie: they want you to see it and say: "I need to spend money on this." In general, then, you're not going to put something in a trailer that puts off your audience from actually purchasing the product. Generally the only advertisements I've seen promise explicit murder porn is... well, explicit murder porn. And sometimes cheeky young subversives have used shock content to "jolt audiences out of their complacency," but Naughty Dog isn't creating radical art that might lead to public scandal and bankruptcy, and TLOU isn't Un Chien Andalou, or anything else similarly experimental or risky.

The violence in TLOU Part II's trailer exists outside of any kind of context, and is there to titillate and intrigue the audience. That's fine, but I also think it doesn't really jive with the whole "respect wamen" thing.

And, you know, social norms have also changed massively within societies over time as well. Show something like The Walking Dead or Saw to an American living 50 or 100 years ago, and tell them that these were widely visible and promoted within the society, and I can only imagine the person would conclude that they were the reprehensible product of a godless and profoundly morally bankrupt society. Of course, nowadays, they're not so big of a deal. So you'll understand if I attribute Japan's increased levels of tolerance for depictions of 14 year old girls in their skivvies to cultural differences as opposed to accusing them of some massive violation of universal morality. But, judging by your previous post, I think we agree on this matter. And yes, tradition is never a good excuse to stick by a behavior you know to be detrimental to the well-being of others (which, in my book, is ground zero for determining the moral status of something).

I wouldn't really say I was making an argument in my first post. More making a snide remark about the pro-censorship attitudes of certain people, especially when it comes to people talking about "the right side of history" (which is nonsense, because everyone thinks they're on the right side of history when they're caught up in the middle of it; it's only afterward, upon reflection, that we can say that someone was on the right or wrong side of history. And even then, the notion is grounded in a sense of historicism that I... don't fully agree with.)

Would you never draw the line and say that something is too offensive, even for adults? What about Slave Trader? The game that allows you to revisit the American South's glory days and get rich in the cotton fields off the sweat of black slaves' backs. If they step out of line, beat them half to death. See one you fancy, rape her and create your own mulatto babies. Sound distasteful? Hey, it's only a game and we're all adults. Don't like it IGNORE it and MOVE ON. Maybe you'd prefer Arbeit Macht Frei in which you play the part of a busy camp commandant who has to organise the gassing of thousands of Jewish prisoners. Shocked? Ok, just IGNORE it and MOVE ON, snowflake.

@EVIL-C I’m not sure it’s a case of ignore it and move on. This seems to be a game about sleazing on women; given the current, justified, spotlight on such matters, I can’t blame Sony for not wanting to be a part of it- if indeed this is the reason they won’t release it. So far, nothing has been confirmed either way.

I concur - This is more polished "game" than stuff like Life of Black Tiger...so...what is it? Concept? Context?
