Ummm...who? Where were these people when you cut a dude in half with a chainsaw in Gears multiplayer? Thats MUCH more violent.

Maybe it's because more people see The Last Of Us as having a more realistic approach. You'd be surprised how many people are complaining about its violence.

I mean, it's kill or be killed for these kind of games. People just don't seem to understand that.

"you'd be surprised how many people are complaining about its violence."

Repeating what logic asked, who? I've been following this game and haven't heard anything of the sort. Did you hear how excited the audience was at E3? The author is just writing an attention grabbing article, nothing more.

Go to YouTube and other sites.
Ive seen it.
Also I seen lots of hate for this game on youtube.
Maybe just trolls

I've seen a lot of people complaining on here about this topic.

Yea i agree, you could actually feel every kill in the demo

Lazy_Sunday2178d ago

Remember when you played GTAIV and that first kill made you feel bad deep down inside? GTAIV couldn't keep up that emotional facade, but The Last of Us does with simple gameplay footage.

WillGuitarGuy2178d ago

@Lazy_Sunday That's how I felt when I first played Red Dead Redemption and I accidently killed my horse.

pushed violence barriers? lol i enjoyed the crap outta that presentation. to me that was the best game shown on stage during all of E3. from the chick with a brick to that guys head, the fire, to the very end in your face... just amazing.

perfectCarbonara2178d ago

In Gears I'm cartoonishly killing an ugly locust nobody cares about. In The last of Us I'm killing a guy who for all we know has his own Ellie to take care of and is basically just trying to survive.

Of the top of my head I can't remember any games where slaughtering another human being has been portrayed so brutally real.

So true, which is why for me personally GTA is one of the most violent games because of REALISM. Also what you said about "they're cartoonishly killed" I AGREE. It's a lot more unnerving killing an innocent bystander in GTA or someone begging for their life like in The Last of Us than some monster that nobody cares about. The only "mythical" game that actually made me feel bad for the violence against the monsters was God of War lol. How Kratos killed every God was just so brutally realistic.

@ perfect

Manhunt games were pretty brutal.

Nimblest-Assassin2178d ago (Edited 2178d ago )

I think people feel its more violent than other games, because it is so grounded. Take Ascension for example... when Kratos killed the elephant man, I gleed because its so over the top its awesome.

When Joel bashed the dudes head in, and choked the other to death... I cringed because of how realistic they made it. Its so absorbing, because its not over the top gore... but something more realistic

Extremely excited for 5 games now

Ummm hello there's a reason why it's Rated "M"for mature i swear people these day's will complain about anything-__-.

Glad someone enjoyed it looking forward to it when it releases.

Convas2178d ago

Not going to stop me from enjoying it. XD

So what is MortalKombat?

Mild Violence and Comic Mischief.

srcBFMVBMTH2178d ago

Cartoonish. Don't get me wrong because MK is one of the most violent game ever made. But it's more of a "HAHA, look at the way he died!" sorta violence instead of a "HOLY, SHIT. Did I just do that?. I kinda feel sorry for that guy now" violence. There's a BIG difference. The average person would actually feel something when killing someone that's completely helpless and begging for their life.
