Detroit: Become Human is insulting humans. Is it right to portray all humans as the evil ones?
Maybe but there are some good humans treat Android well. Yes, Human isn’t friendly to android and treat them more object than person, but the android isn’t perfect either. I think QD choose Android as main part of story, because I think they want us to see different view of them. For example, Markus is the character who lead the android revolution but he has two choice. Will he convince the human with peaceful solution or violence ? Android is just as human in Detroit Become Human. None of them are perfect and the game is moral grey.
You are wasting your breath on a useless article...
Finally social justice for humans. We have come full circle lol.
And so are P.K. Dick or G. Orwell or R.Bradbury fictions. Call the Fahrenheit 451 firemen maybe ?
This article is insulting intellect. The writer is insulting journalism.
It really quite interesting as the people who write these ridiculous articles are the exact people who would form the anti-android, human-first type mobs in the game. As Einstein said: Two things are infinite, the Universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the Universe.
These articles are absolutely retarded...
Hahaha yeah its insulting humans alright... that's why I'm LOVING it more XD !!!
It's not insulting humans, it's critiquing human nature. There's a big difference.
We are pieces of shit, and this game just tells it how it is. Anyway, I loved this game and I think it's underrated. It felt kind of like a survival horror, but instead of fighting against zombies or monsters, you're fighting persecution. And yeah, they managed to make that pretty scary and stressful, it's a remarkable achievement. I feel like this is the game Quantic dream had always been trying to make but came up short before. I wish everyone would get to experience it.
I'm still going thru it, but I love the attention to detail, even the articles in the magazines in the game are not far-fetched at all, actually applicable to today.
So true and I love reading the magazines and even watching the news.
Humans are a cancer and machines are the cure. Just ask Mr Smith ;)
Now I feel ashamed for not being a android...... Great game anyways
i knew it, I am an android btw just look at my name
You need mental help ASAP.
Yes, it is perfectly okay to portray humans as they really are. Humans are naturally terrified at what they don't understand and change. Nothing in the game that humans do are what they have done in the past or are currently doing today. You already see people now getting mad because automated services are starting to become more common. Racism, sexism, and homophobia are still very much big issues. Even issues like better regulations on certain things are sending people into nearly a violent rage because of easily spread misinformation and understanding. Do you honestly think if this was a real thing happening that it would go differently, do you really think humans would just all of a sudden be accepting of androids being apart of us as equals? But that is all part of the game, getting you to think when and while you make the choices and choose which path you are going to go down. There were a few people who were super kind to the androids and there were people who weren't but your actions also had an effect on how people view the events of the game.
@Phantoms42 I have to disagree. "Humans are naturally terrified at what they don't understand and change." This is not true, by a study done at Chapman University in 2015. Fear of personal future meaning change and also including dying and unemployment etc. Ranked 5th out of the top 10 fears. "Racism, sexism, and homophobia are still very much big issues." The sole reason it is a big issues now. Cause now it's being forced down people's throats and so in turn people get defensive and it makes them more, racist, sexist and homophobic.
Mm, no, the current push from the left to brand conservatives as racists and homophobes does not make us more so. Of course it makes us more defensive. We have to defend ourselves from hateful attacks a lot more than we used to.
if being open about it makes you feel like its being shoved down your throat then buddy that sounds like a personal problem.
I don't really have an opinion either way. But your sitation supports his assertion, not yours.
I feel like we deserve it to be honest...
Humans insult humans each & everyday including on this site.
Yes, because people are generally terrible even to one another.
I am really enjoying this game but I must say that QD could have just put Conner and Kara's story line in, I just dont really care that much for Marcus, North and Ian or what they are trying to achieve. A focus on two or three androids solely breaking out of their restrictions and trying to find their way would have made for a stronger story, I would not mind to have play Luther's back story either.
IT. IS. A. VIDEO. GAME.
I heard it's a "cinematic experience".
It's a video game.... IT'S A VIDEO GAME... STOP WITH THE INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !
Lol, this guy hasn’t been on planet earth too long. Humans are fu#&ed
Maybe his mommy cuddle him way too much, and forget to release him into the real world lol
It's just a story, obviously not all humans are shit, but to shine a light on the ones that are creates an interesting dynamic in this story. I haven't played it yet, and have only seen a fair amount of clips, but I hope they are not too ham fisted with it. "Evilness", as characterized in literature, is far better when it's multidimensional. The story should make you at least understand the motivations of the bad guy, even if you can't relate to them.
Soooooo is this for real or is it like an onion site? Because if this is serious it has to be probably the dumbest thing I’ve seen posted on N4G.com.
I agree with the headline. I wish there was a human character to somehow balance things out, and also to have a more traditional gameplay, where the hi-tech scanning of your surroundings is disabled.
There might be DLC for that.
Ah yes another snowflake who believes all human beings (aside from ones that don't share their point of views) are pure and wonderful beings smh
Humans are terrible where you been 😂😂😂
It's fiction. No different from a book or a movie. I guess I Robot was insulting to robots.
The movie was possibly insulting, not the original short novels. :) I got to love robots thanks to Asimov.
Humans r much worst than portrayed n D:BH imo. I won't go into details on some of the unbelievable things we've all read or heard about. It's an ugly truth, and Cage succeeded in giving us a glimpse of how humanity is (on a small scale) Great game too..some parts remind me of the 2001 A.I. Movie 😀 Game On
Its only insulting those that see themselves in it.
Enjoying the game immensely. Humans are evil, and do the most terrible things. According to this article, if you play a second time it will not show you the path you took previously so you can take another route. I hoping that wasn't the case. Anyway I'll shall see later.
Everything is insulting nowadays! Wtf is this!
Absolutely foolish article. This idea that we should restrict games to the vision that we like is silly.
Yes, as humans we can be down right disgusting & horrible to others. This game shows that. David Cage & Quantic Dream want storytelling that pulls at the emotional cords & makes you really think. I’m really in awe at how much content/choice is in this game. That flowchart, WOW. I 100 agree with what Lightning Mr Bubbles (Love the name lol) said, I also believe this is the game Quantic Dream had always been trying to make, since the beginning. They’ve really outdone themselves & raised the bar (on a graphics level) “in my opinion” while also raising the bar for this genre of games. From Heavy Rain, to Beyond, now to Detroit, they’ve struck gold with their absolute best work to date. Much respect to that studio & Sony for continuing to support them. A must play for any PS4 gamer who wants a great & powerful story.
Just watch or read the news. Humans are terrible and treat each other like garbage. Of course humans would be just as bad or worse towards androids.
Well, well, well if it isn't Jack the android coming round these parts again. Spreading his propaganda and thinking he's part of our world. Ha ha ha ha. Go back up your drive or something.
I don't get these HJW (Humans Justice Warriors), humans are overrated. Fuck them. 😂😂
humans as a whole are terrible. look at how far we've come and have yet to understand human relations. To this day individuals get harassed for being "different". We have yet to find comfort in letting people express however they want to be expressed.
Even if their expressions are terrible?
This game is great.
Humanity is in the worst state its ever been in, good for him calling it out. David Cage is one of the few who has the backbone to say things other people don't have the nerve to. That's one of the great things about him.
Please tell me your are joking? The worst state humanity has ever been in... WOW! Its almost as if you dont read history, because if you actually read history and looked at the world objectively you would know the world on whole is better off today than any time in history. Our medicine is better, our food is better, our transportation and infrastructure is better, Hunger is down, Poverty is down, expected life span is way up. I would actually find you hard pressed to name one thing truly worse today than its ever been in the past.
Of course someone has to find a way to find this game offensive.... Smh.
look at the f in world..... there is the answer to your question
Humans suck. That's why I spend so much of my free time playing videogames. Sure, there are plenty of humans I like, but I'm not opposed to fiction that portrays the dark side of our species.
It's standard writing. You don't mess with the banal, you focus on that which sells the story. All those Androids standing around doing nothing? Are they abused? Or are they just elements that don't need to be focused on because it doesn't add to the story? Is the artist abusive to Androids? A certain person who actually is very pro-Android movement?
I'm not even going to click this one...
Well for me it's an extremely entertaining escape! It is so much fun and I'm really enjoying the story and all the many versions of said story there are!
All those iPhone buying hipsters are hurting androids
Is it evil to smash your toaster? I wouldn’t feel bad about smashing my toaster, even if it had a pretty face.
Would you look at that. A game enticing philosophical discussion. Go Quantic Dream! =)
What’s wrong with that? Human beings suck.
It's entertainment, if actors in said entertainment didn't do worst case scenario terrible shit, then people wouldn't get their drama boners off. Hence why every, "emotional", title we've seen the last half a decade puts characters in ridiculously hard to believe situations just to pull at your heartstrings cus no talent writing staff. Basically, it's not going away as long as people remain stupid, which.....
I hate stories like this. "is it right to portray all humans as the evil ones?" well... it doesn't matter. because its fiction. in this particular story humans are the evil ones. in other movies or games plenty of robots are. I, Robot for example... Eagle Eye, Hal9000 etc... in fact most. The whole point is to be thought provoking and introspective. What kind of perspective would we gain as people if we're always s***ing our own d***s??
Not reading the article with a title like that. Cannot believe the lack of journalism in the gaming industry.
About time we stopped seeing ourselves as some unsullied diamond of the universe. The game’s glimpse of the future might not be so unbelievable. From the few in-game magazines and television broadcasts I’ve skimmed so far: America & Russia squabbling and on the verge of armed conflict, unemployment at record high, skyrocketing interest, global warming passing the tipping point with coastlines vanishing and temperatures irreparably on the rise, bees extinct, threat of disease and famine with an overpopulation of 10 billion, president with low approval ratings. But there are glimpses of hope, too.
Hey, need I remind you the events in Detroit Become Human is (currently) 'FICTION' ... it's a video game, why does everything need to be politicised /smh
