Good article. There does seem to be an abundance of child death in video games lately. Now how do they top this?

Kill a puppy?

The same goes for puppies! You can kill thousands of soldiers but as soon as there is one dead dog there is extreme sadness.

So what's the rating for this game again?

Why are people crying about this all of a sudden. Same thing happens in an R rated movie. It's fake. It's "entertainment". And it has an age restriction.

Parents parenting correctly, and people in reality should have no problem with this part of the game.

I know i am very supportive of video games and movies being rated equally but.. it's not the same when you're the one taking the shoes of the killer i think it should be taken much more seriously when you're controlling the character.

-_- Why does the media have to blow everything up.

The children aren't real maybe instead of picturing them as innocent children you can picture them as polygons with textures on them, HELL or even picture them as the 13 year old who keeps saying he wants to bang your mom on Xbox Live?

This is why most games dont include children or allow you to attack them (FO3 comes to mind...)

You can kill kids in Deus Ex.

And what?

I dont why but i got a different feeling when i watched the dead island trailer than when i watched the mw3 one, the dead island one was done very well and i felt really sad when i watched it, in a good way, but when i watched the mw3 one it felt tasteless, just there for the shock value (not that i mean to imply that showing the death of a child can be tasteful, just that dead islands was handled and presented very well in comparison).

Well, that little girl from the Dead Island trailer kind of had it coming.
