'Killing Babies' in DmC Angers Some Gamers

AT writes: Warning, spoilers ahead - While some users continue to complain about various aspects of the game, there is a number of players who seem to be aggitated by the fact that one of the main characters in the game shoots a pregnant woman in the stomach and then kills her baby (both the woman and the baby are demons, by the way, but that doesn't seem count as a valid argument). (DmC: Devil May Cry, PS3, Xbox 360)

How does the people being demons not count as a valid argument?

Didn't we kill babies in Dead Space too?
Dante's Inferno?

Those are two just off the top of my head.
mamotte  +   996d ago
Dead Space and Dante's Inferno. You, sir, stole my words.

The point here is that it's okay to kill evil babies.
Ace_Pheonix  +   996d ago
It's also perfectly okay to kill unborn babies. And since this one is unborn, it's totally free game.

And killer demonic babies in Doom 3.

How does the fact that it's a GAME AND IN NO WAY REAL not count as a valid argument? Oh wait, it is valid...

In this post slaughtering of kids in the US, this can become inflammatory real fast. The NRA and politicians will be all over this like fat boys on burgers.

I don't understand the issue..?
Ir's a video game, it's not as if someones actually going to go out after playing the game and start swinging swords at babies heads.
CanadianTurtle  +   996d ago
It clearly says rated "M" for mature. For those who are Mature enough to realize it's just a game. I'm sure you'll find even worse things about babies in movies and books

Some people really need to take a long look at themselves, and their priorities, if any aspect of any fictional work actually offends them. Especially when they are warned about what's in the game on the box before they even play it.

Trish is a demon, does it mean she's evil? No she isn't so killing a demon baby is wrong no matter which way you look at it.
WitWolfy  +   996d ago
Your perspective of reality is so warped its un fucking believable... did you see what you typed.. You have sympathy for a fictional character... REALLY?!?!?!

Mario on the NES killed enemies that resembled snapping turtles. And they weren't doing anything but walking. Killing animals is wrong no matter which way you look at it. Let's get enraged and call Nintendo insensitive the way PETA did. /s

You don't kill "babies", YOU don't even kill the baby. And to top is off, you don't even SEE the UNBORN baby.

Im one of the old fans that got shafted here when it released, I expected to see loads of trolling reviews on metacritic.. to my surprize, there werent, There were genuine people stating why they hated it, that couldnt understand the praise is garnered from the big sites..
One the issues that came up continously (besides the 7hr campaign,non skippable cutscenes, no replayability)
Was the baby killing scene...
Wtf NT... just.. appauling.
Tameem said they werent making a game, but art akin to cinema..
My Lord, you're a sick man Tameem.

I want to disagree with your comment more but N4G won't let me

Almost everyone on Metacritic is a troll. That includes all the people who play a game for an hour (sometimes only the demo) and give it 10/10 and the people who give games like DMC between 0-3/10.

I've read those reviews just there and most of them just say the same old tired crap that you would find on an article on here, even before the demo was out.

Now I haven't played the game, and I don't intend to as I think it looks crap and I agree with the majority on Dante's stupid emo transformation, but I know from having played the demo and because I actually trust the collective opinion of reviewers that the game would not be less than a 5/10 for me.

And onto the baby killing, it's been done before and there's nothing wrong with it. It's a game and the babies are always monsters in some way.

Any gamer offended by killing demon babies needs to grow some balls, and if they are girls, lady balls.

ive heard some drill instructors in the marine core like to yell, kill babies, to prevent the next terrorist leader from growing up, gamers should direct their anger towards the marine core... lets see what happens to them! >:)

@ThatEnglishDude, that "dont like it, dont play it" bs is ridiculous. Let me explain why, we live in a world with more and more censorship, Obama is actually pushing to fund research into the videogame industry to censor violence in videogames if it does in fact cause instability in individuals to commit crime. We ALL Know thats not true, as millions upon millions buy games, but do you really think the "research" is going to bring forth truthful results? Both Democrats and Republicans have been gunning for censorship or ban on violence in the entertainment sector.
The point Im making is, we dont need over dramatic insensitive sorry excuses like Tameems baby killing scene to garner enough attention to cause a stir and reach Fox, who would then spin that story like hell. This stupid scene if it garners enough attention and exposure hands the politicians enough ammo to point their overpayed fingers at games rather than societal issues that lead to these atrocities.
It would be a sad sad day.. the day we are forced to shoot rainbow colored plastic guns in videogames.. especially if DmC's unnessary scene was a contributing factor to it.

*President* Obama.

Here in your country we even refer to former presidents as 'Mr. President'.

You don't need to respect the man, you need only to respect the title/position.
ShadowRoxas  +   996d ago
This is so freaking stupid. If you dont like the game don't play it. One thing that cracks me the most is a lot of people swore up and down this game was going to suck, and you know what? It didn't. Now people are finding other things to bitch about. Grow up, there are so many other things going on in the world that this attention should be going towards.
TemplarDante  +   996d ago
@Shadow, sorry mate, It does suck. Only children and mainstream media loved it.
VileAndVicious  +   996d ago
It's so easy to blame games for everything apparently.It was a demonic baby...I just don't see what the big deal is. It didn't even really show it either.
PhoenixRising37  +   996d ago
jesus christ, do people ever shut the hell up? it's a damn videogame; get over it.
JaredH  +   996d ago
The complainers should watch a Serbian Film, or just read the plot on Wikipedia.
pbasson  +   996d ago
I would like say this is a game, but there are people in the world that kill both unborn & born babies.
Qrphe  +   996d ago
Not that I care about the argument, but that whole scene is just of really really poor taste.

Again, just like with the sex scene, it's just the devs getting some free marketing for Tameem may cry

Dcadjust  +   996d ago
If you don't like it don't play the game. No one is forcing you to play it.
shahrukh339  +   996d ago
The title should be like

What about these babies?

Gekko  +   995d ago
I haven't played it yet but age ratings are there for a reason and besides, I don't remember anyone complaining when there were babies destroyed in Shadows of the Damned.

"Although this content may sound a bit shocking, it surprises me that there are still people out there who are dumb enough to take such things seriously. Games like Devil May Cry were always known for scenes of insane, over-the-top action and violence."

What a moron. killing a "pregnant women" is a blatant excuse by NT to add "shock" value to the game to create "controversy". Really lame but of course the masses won't even realize this because they are stupid like NT says we are.
