You don't have to be okay with the violence in video games

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!?!!

Yi-Long1273d ago

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.

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

Yi-Long1273d ago

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.

Hellsvacancy1272d ago

You worded it much better than me

MAULxx1273d ago

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.

SolidDuck1273d ago

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.
