The gaming industry just stepped it up a notch


Recommended Posts

Unreal Engine maker Epic Games doesn't want its name or logo associated with Hatred, the graphically violent massacre-style shooter built with Unreal Engine 4, and has asked developer Destructive Creations to remove Epic's logo from the game's trailer and other marketing.

If religious Taylor hates it then I'll probably dig it.

My sound is low at the moment, is he killing zombies or actual people? Is this some Columbine shit?

The execution style deaths are pretty sweet.

Killing random people. Saying he wants to die in a big way. Pretty much mass murder Columbine shit.

I laughed while watching that.  It was too out there and too ridiculous for me to take seriously.  Not to mention the narrative over the video was over the top.

 

I'm guessing this is a statement game for a company trying to make a name for themselves.  They're probably going for the shock factor so they can be all over the news.

Looking forward to the right wing crazies, religious, and lawyers with agendas going after the company citing it's what is causing crime or criminal youths.....because, you know, this stuff never happened before this particular game hits shelves.

 

I don't believe that violent video games turn normal people into psychopaths. Heck, I play plenty of M-rated shooters. However, I don't see how a game in which your only goal is to brutally murder as many innocent people as possible in everyday settings could possibly produce any positive outcomes for anyone playing it. At least in GTA, killing innocent people is a choice and you'll pay for it by getting the cops to chase you around forever. 

 

What if there was a game in which you played as a serial rapist? Or a pedophile? Where do we draw the line?

Purely gratuitous...  These games with no redeeming-value definitely play a role in pushing kids toward shooting-up their schools.  They desensitize the kids to blood, gore, and emotion.

 

As an adult I enjoy losing my mind for a while playing some of these shooters, but I understand it's an unrealistic outlet.  I might give this one a chance, if you can also play the roles of CCW guy, Cop, or Military guy.  I always wondered what would happen if two wack-jobs went to shoot-up the same place at the same time...  I doubt this game digs even that shallowly to find value.

I wouldn't go that far. If the game has no story or any replay value no one is going to play it. These days most games are sandbox types or have some kind of killing in them, whether it's this or Halo.

 

There have been a bunch of these types of games, but the running around killing randoms gets so old quick they all flop.

Didn't Tipper Gore start the PRC and parental advisory labels? She's a right wing crazy?

I thought this was going to be about casinos.

 

 

Living in Vegas, that is my usual context when I see the word "gaming". In the local lexicon it encompasses pretty much everything that happens on a casino floor, whether slots, sports books or table games.

 

I thought the same thing.

There it is.

I enjoy and play these games so I can't demonize them but what redeeming or positive qualities do they have for younger children? In no way do I think they cause someone to do this as these are obviously unhinged people. It's no doubt they can play a role in these mass shootings. Read up on Andres Breivak and his shooting of some 70+ people in Norway.
