Bethesda had the perfect answer for people bothered by Doom's violence: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That headline wasn't an exaggeration; Bethesda's Pete Hines literally shrugged on-camera when Polygon asked about criticism of the game's violence.

It was an appropriate, and in some ways powerful, response. Every game isn't for every gamer. There's little to be gained by interacting with someone who may argue that 50 Shades of Gray has too much sex; this wasn't a surprise. You are being given what you signed up for.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yea! I want my Doom with pretty rainbows, flowers and butterfly swarms. Because when Evil attacks in reality it's all daisies and potpourri.

Volkama1125d ago

Dammit, I hated it when demons attacked in reality. Ruined a perfectly good Tuesday afternoon.

Cueil1124d ago

I didn't see you in that fight... >_>

Well the devil does wear a nice suit. But I know what you're saying.

It's getting absurd. I can see in 25 yrs, our choices will be so damn limited. And why? Because of tragedy, b/c of the unavoidable. B/c shit happens in life, and instead of ever getting to the root cause, or moving back towards absolutes, we dive headlong into relativism, and thus...we get PC to a greater and greater degree every day.

If it offends one person, it's gotta go. Maybe, I dunno, let's try holding ppl accountable for their actions, instead of removing every possible hazard. But nope. And why? 2 and politics. Everything is seen through these 2 prisms, common sense and history lessons be damned!!

My allergies put potpourri on the list of evil attacking...

Who's complaining about the violence? Sounds like a canned question designed to generate hype.

Ben Kuchera is writing an article on this....when he was one of the guys who was sticking up with Aninta when she complained about over the top violence and that in the past, especially during the whole GG thing.

Two faced b******

It's fucking hilarious.

BEN KUCHERA TYPED "Every game isn't for every gamer." We entered the twilight zone everyone.

Antifan1124d ago

It's just proof that Polygon is all about sensationalism. They write whatever topic that gets people to click. Their site is one big lie.

Larry L1124d ago

You guys are thinking WAY too much into it. Ol' Benny-Boy was just trying to get laid.

wakeNbake1124d ago

Cueil1124d ago

OMG I can totally envision that as a Telltale's game game!
