Video Games Will (Hopefully) Outgrow Ultraviolence

BNR: Quite frankly, I think that the levels of violence in games are just something that the industry will hopefully outgrow. I think there’s a saddening perception that a bloody game with sexual themes is automatically “mature” and “adult” and “hardcore”.

There are plenty of games out there without ultra-violence or sex. Their existence does not mean they're present in all games, or even in more than a handful of them.

Indeed. But why must a game like Lollipop Chainsaw become so much more popular than something beautiful like To The Moon? Why must generic war FPS continue to dominate? Something. Needs. To. Change.

Well,many gamers have different taste on what they enjoy and we shouldn't dictate what should and shouldn't be popular....

The same reason big blockbuster movies are action oriented? You don't see love stories (besides Twatlight) competing with Transformers or TDK....

Comic books have a sense of story, but overall are still action oriented.

Just as there are plenty of movies available for all kinds of tastes, there are and will be plenty of games too. But big explosions, boobs and guts are going to continue to be the big attractions.

But there's a good reason for that too. Movies like "The Avengers" allow studios to make riskier projects, just as big blockbuster games fund new IPs. It's not as black and white as you seem to think, and not too much needs to change.

Movies haven't outgrown sex or violence, why should/would videogames? This article is ridiculous. This just in genius, people like sex and violence. If you don't give the people what they want, your game may be great, but it won't sell, and you won't have a job.

I never said games would be completely rid of sex or violence- I just said that one day, these things would become less popular.

Seriously. Shut the fuck up.

People love sex and violence, and in a game its fun. It will never disappear. I think it will outgrow "sense-less" violence to an extent, but just like Rambo movies they will always pop up.

Yea i don't think it will and i think it will just get more violent in the futures but haven't seen anything as violent as Manhunt on current gen games though.
