I saw less violence in that trailer than Gear of War series, what is everyone whining about.

Word. You can literally chainsaw a guy in half, curb stomp his head in or blow your opponent into bloody pieces in Gears of War (Journalists: "DID YOU SEE THAT?!?! AWESOME BRO!!! *high fives*), but suddenly, shooting a guy in TLOU is too violent for them (Journalists: "DID YOU SEE THAT?!?! HE SHOT A GUY IN THE FACE! What has the world come Fox News, this is just terrible").

Edit: @ n4gboy

Remember how the US/UK journalists went on about how the airport sequence in CoD wasn't that bad and for everyone to stop whining/talking about it? I think you could even kill innocent women in that part of the game.

What do you expect? It's a post apocalyptic game where survival is important. You wouldn't expect butterflies, everyone hugging eachother etc. so far the violence that has been shown in the gameplay video and trailer fit the mood and the cause for the violence. I can think of a lot of games that just have violence in there just for the "cool" factor. This my friend is addinga whole new demsion to storytelling and presentation.

It didn't seem too violent to me

I think I'm too used to violence in video games to complain about this.

Looks like most people haven’t read the article just reacting to the title.
