Blood Guts and Characters

Violence in games is nothing new whether it is Mario stopping on Gumbas, Master Chief murdering scores of grunts or the leader of the Saints burning Steel Port to the ground. Violence in video games is more or less expected and most games have some amount of violence in them. While the violent combat in many games can be is well done, the same cannot be said for its affect on the narrative. How many times have you played an Uncharted, watched Nathan Drake murder his 1000th man, make some jokey quip and think this guys a sociopath. The answer is likely never and that is because violence in video games has no impact on you or on the characters. There are exceptions of course; games where violence and conflict is used to make a point or further explore the characters committing it. ...
