Ubisoft published a gameplay trailer for Assassin's Creed Unity in which 15 people are stabbed to death, mostly via wounds to the neck and throat. It's okay if that makes you uncomfortable.
Sure, but you also don't need to try and convince people of the inverse either.
I'm perfectly fine with fictional violence, in the form of entertainment. Real violence is obviously a completely different matter, but no one in their right mind would mix the two up.
Wait! You have the unique (but extremely common) ability to discern between fantasy and reality!?!!
Yep. I'm still waiting to be recruited for The X-Men or the Avengers, because of these powers. I swear I'll only use them for good.
Most of my favorite games are very violent. Even my favorite racer (Road Rash) is violent. This might have something to do with why mostly men buy consoles. Most men are attracted to violent entertainment.
People wasting their breath and time talking about fictional violence are the same people who have the means to stop real life violence but choose not to get involved. Right now immigrant kids crossing the desert to reach America are dying. Isreali and Palestinian kids are dying. Ukranian kids are dying. Syrian kids are dying even though the news just stopped reporting it. Also many African girls and Afghanistan girls are being kidnapped and violated and killed but....... These people are talking about fictional violence. Hit reset and the fictional characters are reborn meanwhile kids are dying and there is no reset button on a human life.
There a simple solution, if you don't like it don't buy it
I don't personally think the AC games has enough violence, it's very tame, some sound fx and a little blood skirt is as violent as AC gets (not played Flag Flag) It's one of my main complaints of the series what's wrong with body dismemberment? Ubisoft should say screw it and make it a mature 18 game, it's holding itself back by not
Yeah, Ubisoft censors itself. We saw the same with Watch_Dogs: the violence is there, but not really. There's just minimal impact, damage and blood when you shoot someone. I'm not a gore-hond by any means, but I don't care much for self-censorship either, where you get 'clean' violence... because it's just unrealistic and it's annoying and takes you out of the game.
You worded it much better than me
Are we still complaining about video game violence? If it makes you uncomfortable then don't buy it or play it. I'm with Hellsvacancy on this. It isn't graphic enough. I mean if your stabbing goons with a sword or dagger there should be some wounds & lots of blood. Same goes for bullets.
Even more good news, you also don't need the permission of a hit hungry dishonest millennial sissy to feel that way.
Is it also ok if it doesn't make u uncomfortable. And your able to realize the difference between a video game and real life. I also know the difference between video game journalists and these talentless hacks at polygon.
This article gets a +1 to full retard and an extra 50% chance to roll a dumbassery of the day award.
2 sjw articles from Polygon. Wtf?
They are not SJWs. Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony ... those were Warriors. They faced death, prison, rape, beatings. These whiners will never face such dangers, they are not warriors nor really even affecting the world in which we live in.
Completely agree with you and we'll said, however the experience of living traumatic events and the understanding of these events are in no way separate in the sense that they are emotional events to both parties, though the experience of living and knowing are separate they leave a lasting effect. Back on topic though with so much depiction of these events on entertainment it's not hard to understand why most under 20 feel a separation and departure from these "events' ( how many people in video games have you heard I'll rape so and so). Honestly I don't know what to say now but not everyone is detached from horrific events, but yes certain degenerates are and in truth they are. Ps. This ain't a criticism of what you said just a little bit of faith back in humanity
My bad, it's just the standard term that's used around the net to describe these people. I know full well about the history.
Wow 2 dumb articles from Polygon in a single day. Way to go guys! Polygon is really going full retard today.
I can't wait to see what "touchy" subject they will "write" about next!! Anyone got any ideas?
Yeah, and best way to not be ok with it - is to not play it and shut up and leave others to their own choice. They've shown tons and tons of footage of stealth action and of just the new procedural engine and new maneuvering mechanics. You are choosing to take the one violent trailer that is actually depicting the history of this place and you are making it into violence sells. Yeah, violence sells, but atleast this is based on reality. Unlike most the ridiculous violent movies only out to be more violent and shocking than the last. Why not go after that? The game is set in an insanely violent time, I want them to capture it the way it's suppose to be. I don't want a watered down history lesson. It's dummies like this that caused Treyarch to stop making dismemberment in COD. World At War was so awesome because that dynamic dismemberment. Games that are suppose to be violent should get as violent as they are suppose to get, no holding back. I like how they always go after HipHop music and videogames. Go after the crazy violent movies like Saw that aren't telling history stories or anything, they are just purposely looking for the most sick, shock value fueled ways of killing. No, you rather go after the littler dog, even though it's too big for you to do anything serious to anymore. No laws will be passed anymore, games make too much money, all that they can do is come out with dumb articles like this one now.
Don't like it? Fine, just don't bother me with your opinions. As I got my own.
Polygon is just pushing their liberal agenda on everyone... I wish they would do less of these editorials pandering to the weak of heart and mind
It's it the conservatives that like to complain about video game violence?
It's a fallacy that he was taught to spell or given any cognitive ability
What does this have to do with politics? And, if you recall, the conservatives have always been the ones who want to silence free speech, not the liberals.
Conservatives want to silence free speech? They're not the ones who will attack and bully you ruthlessly if you don't agree with them. Also its funny in another article on N4G MSNBC was attacking video games and they're as liberal as you can possibly get.
Actually it's the liberals who wanna silence free speech by labelling those that disagree with them racist, misogynist, homophobe, rape-apologist, etcetera, conflating valid criticism with hate.
Do you know what a liberal is you uneducated swine , or was your heart and mind not in your writing, and fuc*ing hell you have 4 wan*ers agreeing with you. You have now polluted 4 twits into thinking like you, I suppose you don't vote or read politcs my god your such a idiot. You have offended me that's why I'm so pissed. I wish there was a bubble down for idiot, or ignorant or something like that, and again 4 idiots agreed with you fuc* me. But me actually being a liberal ( a liberal in the sense of its real meaning not yours) I can say this
I think you're thinking of liberal in a classic sense, modern-day liberals are basically fascists.
It's posts like this that really confuse the issues. Reverse course...is your post a prime example of a liberal? Should everyone reading it be offended because you cannot express anything without expletives or personal attack? How does his opinion really hurt or offend you in the same regard as your general view? Grow up please, you didn't pioneer the "liberal agenda".
Obviously you're making the liberals look like better people here. Ahaha..
@ JonathanACE Modern-day liberals are basically Marxists and commies.
And yet you only have 3 bubbles...
