As an adult I have found it a compelling, confronting experience so far, and while I don't know if my schedule will let me play it enough to run a review, based on my first couple of hours play I'm enjoying it immensely.
I'm also not suggesting that the game should be censored, or that Sony should not offer the game on the PlayStation Network. I am firmly, resolutely opposed to censorship, and like every other Australian I celebrated the introduction of the R18+ age classification because it meant that adults would get to play uncesored adult games.
But Outlast should not be a PSPlus game."
Whoops. Looks like I have pissed off a lot of people with this one.
I apologise for any anger I have caused. Obviously this is not the intention.
I believe that PSPlus is not a service marketed at adults. It seems to me quite clear that it's for gamers of all ages - given that you need it to play PS4 games online, it by definition is a service for everyone with PS4s.
So, as a service for everyone I do believe there is potential there to confuse people by offering adult content as part of the service. That's not to say the content needs to be taken down, but I do think that Sony should be more explicit that PSPlus is an adults-only service (or alternatively offer a "family friendly" version of PSPlus which wouldn't have R18+ rated games in it.
Anyway, that's my position. I love Sony, I hate censorship, but there's a way to do all that and try to think of the children at times as well :-P
I'm sure there's no way I can adequately explain my position to some people here, so I'll just apologise again for any anger that I've created and let the door hit me on the way out.
