Polygon Live: Is GTA 5's torture scene satire, or just gross?

Grand Theft Auto 5's torture scene is provocative, graphic and unlike anything in mainstream video games. But is it good satire?

Why is this still being discussed? Last I checked; this game was rated M. People never seem to have a problem when this happens in movies.

Indeed and it was pretty tame when compared to torture movies like Hostel.

I thought it was hilarious listening to the dude after you rip his teeth out.

lol.. I had read about some controversial torture scene before I played that part. When I did it, I didn't even see what the big deal was. It didn't seem realistic enough to leave any lasting feeling, and I've played way more graphic scenes than this. Maybe it's me that's demented.

Ya, little let down actually after seeing same stories. Wish it could of gone down the Reservoir Dogs road if ya ask me.

Playing Resident Evil 6 was more torturous!

And more likely to make a gamer angry as a result.

It was pretty bad, but, it could have been MUCH worse. Particularly considering how the scene ended...

The media should listen to the older Wu-Tang albums, listen to the proposed torture techniques from them in the 90's, and be thankful Rockstar didn't include anything like that.

Polygon is run by very sensitive-hearted white men with feministic characteristics. Beta males.
