At one point in time, Steam seemed like the saviour of PC gaming. Now it just seems like a cesspit.
Punch Trump is on Android and Iphone, who cares?
Please don't compare pc/consoles to mobile phones. Those are shovelware, accepting pc/console to be put at the same par as phones will fill them with shovelware too
If the shoe fits...
If the shoe is microtransactions And it fits 60$ AAA game. Should we be ok to wear it? Or should we fight it back?
Lol, 98% of Steam games are shovelware.
Tell me what's worse: a game about punching donald trump? or a game about suicide?
Well first of all Trump deserves it... And if he can say terrible things in the public then people can make stupid games about him, too... This is something else, if you would have lost somebody because that person committed suicide you wouldn't like the idea of people streaming the funniest ways how to kill yourself on twitch... It's absolutely tasteless.
well the game looks like complete rubbish. So I can't even imagine associating the word "funny" with this pile of crap.
I never understand this train of thought. Suicide game? Horrible. Game where you kill endless innocent people? GTA. Someone has to cry about something. Nothing to see here, move along. Thanks Steam for not putting your own agenda's on other people's creations should be more like it.
What innocent people? Do you think NPCs have a conciousness?
Right, but no real people die in "suicide simulator" either. What makes one worse than the other is that suicide simulator appears (on the surface at least) to target a very vulnerable group deliberately and exclusively, whereas GTA doesn't.
Can you prove they don't? :P How do you know you aren't an NPC inside a video game right now?
@Autofire I certainly can't prove that. ;) You cannot even prove that humans have a conciousness. Is there a reason to believe that NPCs are concious beings? Even assuming that such is possible (maybe we all live in the matrix), I doubt current games are sophisticated enough to achieve something as complex as conciousness. At least there is no evidence in support of the opposing view, of which I am aware.
You don't need "Suicide Simulator" to kill yourself in game. Case in point, the GTA series. You can kill yourself by jumping into incoming cars/train, jumping off a building/bridge/helicopter/pla ne, arming yourself with bomb and detonate, annoying Trevor... What I'm trying to say is, people nowadays is so sensitive. You can kill yourself in literally nearly all kind of games if you want to. The keyword here is "game," i.e. not reality.
You're comparing this shovelware garbage to GTA ?
He's not comparing the actual games, just the concept. Having better graphics and a $100 million doesn't change the fact that GTA involves killing people. Killing others is ok, but killing yourself isn't? Not to mention you can kill yourself in just about every action game anyway.
Thanks for bringing this and ISIS simulator to light. I'd never heard of either of these games but they sound like a laugh, I'm going to look up some gameplay right now. : )
This would have been a great xbox one exclusive but microsoft missed the boat again.
I looked it up and the game looked garbage, you could die walking down one step, ISIS simulator might not be worth checking out either but they are interesting game concepts that could be done well.
You're so edgy !
If by "doesn't give a shit" you mean "doesn't support censorship" then I agree and I applaud them for not trimming creative freedom.
Depends is it a game that's a message against suicide and to raise awareness for people to get help or help those in need or is it just saying it's okay to kill yourself which will trigger some to actually do it? One of those is a good approach and one of those proves why basement dwellers shouldn't be developers.
Doesn't matter what the message is. Stopping any developer from creating any game because you disagree with their intentions or ideologies goes against creative freedom. You can dislike the devs or the game's premise all you want, but to stop a game from being released because of sensitive subject matter that will offend is censorship.
You call this game creative? It looks like a turd that has been processed through a meat grinder
I never said this game was creative.
That is the beauty of pc gaming and that is no corporation telling the gamer what to buy or form a gaming library for them. Valve should bring back greenlight or actually figure out how to curate the store. As for suicide simulator who cares. Why must gaming be reduced to just the same franchises, same ideas, etc. Let game developers explore what they want. I applaud the game developer for taking a risk in making a game about suicide but if it is in early access forget it.
What's wrong with a little Seppuku?
My general rule is that if you’re not supposed to laugh, then you should. Maybe I’m just twisted, but now I gotta look up some gameplay lol.
What's the use of steam besides good sales if these games exist?
I don't really give a sh*t!
asset flip - I don't care asset flip - I don't care broken game - I don't care asset flip - I don't care Game nobody knows about - I need to bitch about this! I'm writing an article right now!
This just give the game a free advertisement.
Remember, deveolpers have to pay $100 when they put their game on Steam. If, I'm just pulling this number out my hat, 200 games are put on Steam in one month, that's $20000. Now, imagine that this happens almost everyday on Steam, they're making a bundle before they go to sleep. If this is restricted, it will also limit/reduce the amount of money Steam makes which is not good for Steam as it is a corporation. Bottom line: Steam won't do anything that will hurt their profits, and that's what curating will do.
I'm definitely no SJW, I mean I'll happily fu*k a hooker in GTA and then gun her down for my money back once she gets out the car. But even I think this is a bit tasteless.
I'm disgusted : I will boycott this game until they add a "wanking incident" dlc
"You are alone on a beach with suicidal thoughts, there is nothing left for you in this world. End your life using a variety of different tools and methods.” You only get one chance, what's wrong with exploring your options? Seriously though, what has me amused is the way "simulator" has been reduced to the dumbest things possible. "Walking simulator", "bird dating simulator", "goat simulator" the list is endless and they are not simulations at all.
