One of the stars from Detroit: Become Human has defended Quantic Dream’s decision to include a polarizing scene in its upcoming interactive title.
How is this scene "controversial"? Honestly...
People watch and listen to controversial shit everyday and no one bat's an eyelash, but put it in a game and.......😦
It's controversial so that someone can write an article about it being controversial. It's a click-bait title.
It isn't in the slightest, but controversies seem to be made up out of thin air these days by websites desperate for traffic.
Please dont give into the sjw clowns. Before we know it they will attack last of us saying how the infected are being abused and deserve equal rights
Can we stop saying it's "controversial"? Who found it controversial, really? I have yet to see anyone complain or act outraged, yet i see a new article everyday about how it's controversial. How about we stop manufacturing controversy?
It's only controversial to those people still with bottles in their mouths, the game is M rated, just like how a movie will be R rated, so I don't see the issue. Now if this game was rated E for everyone and had all of this then perhaps that's a different discussion but seeing that you NEED to be 17+ to BUY the game I don't see the issue with it. It's an ADULT GAME made for ADULTS by ADULTS.
Oh please people need to grow up and let gaming move on. This is only controversial because people are desperately trying to make it controversial, at the end of the day if this was inside of a book you would not be picketing outside of Barnes & Noble. People need to take the damn training wheels off of video games and let them be what they are. I mean we've sat here and watch this medium get babied and watched a bunch of Studios try to sugarcoat specific Concepts and ideas inside of games even though they have a damn M rating in the first place. So the people who are getting angry at the scenes inside of this game are not actually helping this medium I would argue they're actually holding it back from its true potential because other mediums don't have to deal with this crap they've already dealt with the Hays code and they've moved past it. This is one of the biggest reasons why I defended everything I heard about Mafia 3 in regards to the n-word because as an African American male myself I do not want to play a game that tries to sugar-coat what happened in the American past, it's why I respected that they openly used that word because the damn game is rated M that would be like me saying I don't want to see American History X have the violence that it has inside of it or people using the n-word or anything like that. If you folks don't want to see the violence inside of this game don't play it. If you don't want your kid to play it will that's why the ESRB exist. But I don't see anything good that is going to come from trying to censor games in regards to violence or religious beliefs or political belief etc
Well said!, Bravo!, If this would be a movie or a book, no one would say shit, they gave Charlize Theron an Oscar for her role in Monster, they do that in a Videogame and they have to close down the studio, it's bullshit. People need to grow up, and videogames need to grow up. I recently read, but don't remember where, that the worst thing to happen to videogames was that when they named them, they put "games" in the title, that maybe worked 30 years ago, but we are way past that, they are interactive media for all the ages, just like movies or books
the people who find it controversial were probably never going to buy the game anyway. Don't cave in to the perpetually outraged twitter mobs who aren't even your customers
Shouldn't even be necessary to defend, it's part of the story, that's it. People need to get over themselves
Gets them some mainstream coverage regardless and I’m pretty sure they predicted (dare I say hoped for) this exact reaction when they chose to showcase that scene.
Would be a pretty neat marketing ploy. The problem I'm fearing, is the possible censorship from the fallout afterwards :O
Another case of misinformation from the media.. The Voicing organization is linking the Daily Mail as a reference and run with it. They actually have no idea whats going on. Like they assume the kid is beaten to death. Maybe not actually. More importantly, there's a campaign for child abuse awareness in the UK. Don't they realise this game has a worldwide audience? I'm sure the game does a good job about it.
I for one enjoy watching all the snow flakes getting triggered and nobody caring lol I say trigger them more. Its hilarious
Any reason to attack videos games haha
Don’t give in.
How come you can write a song about domestic violence, killings or even shootings but you cant depict that on a videogame? Arent form of arta kind of neutral when it comes to those topics? I do believe david cage and his team did and will continue doing great stories and games. Of course they arw not for everyone so please let them be!
Whoever said this is controversial are complete MORONS AND IDIOTS!! Sorry I have to say it and they deserve it. talk about Double standards and Shallowness. Go pick on Movies, series and music not videogames
