Pinoytutorial: Just 10 days after the release of Skyrim, a fully working mod enabling players to kill children NPC is now available. Looks pretty realistic if you'll ask me.
wow what a crazy mod lol.
So you just HAVE to murder children for your precious immersion to be complete? "Buh uh buht y can u only kill big ppl and not teh small ones!" You're fucking idiots if you're looking for excuses. This has to be one of the tasteless, pointless and uncalled-for mods I've seen yet.
The world is getting sicker and more twisted every day. People's morals are becoming non-existent. There has to be a line drawn somewhere, people. It's not at all natural for someone to WANT to kill a child, even in a video game. And to the people saying it's the same thing as killing adults, NO, JUST NO. Children are innocent. They're at no fault and do not deserve any harm. You have to be pretty mentally ill to want to see this. I'm sorry.
@ blumatt the worlds always been sick, look through out history, just with the coming of the internet these sick people can now show themselves freely infront of us. pedo's, child murderers, necrophiliacs etc have all existed through out time. i rather them do it in games than Real life
True, but it seems like it's easier to mask your sickness nowadays. Playing it on a game doesn't seem much better, in my opinion. Killing an adult is one thing, but killing a child is just about as taboo as it gets. Why would you really want to do it? What's next? Gay sex? Rape on games? It's hard to say stuff like this on a website like this because people don't want to hear it, but it's true. That being said, I do plan on buying this game on PS3 very very soon. I'm gonna trade in MW3 for it. The game looks amazing.
there's two children I would kill in the game, they are in Whiterun, a little girl in the main city and the Jarl's son... they piss me off with their belittling remarks lol >:D
The irony of what you say, blumatt, is that you are speaking no differently than anti-violent video game activists. Difference being you draw the line at children. Everything you say about being twisted and mentally ill is just as false and presumptuous of you as it is Jack Thompson. And how is gay sex anywhere near the same moral level as rape? Really? I do not see the big deal in killing pixelated children in a video game. Why do you assume that it makes people sick or twisted? Killing children doesn't phase me anymore than killing an innocent pedestrian in a GTA game. Just because you kill adults doesn't mean that they aren't innocent adults. The appeal to emotion as an excuse in a video game is pointless and refusing to kill children just because they are innocent makes as much sense as refusing to run over a GTA pedestrian because you think they have a family somewhere in Liberty City.
Your opinion on children being innocent is incredibly ill-founded. Some children are innocent. Some children are not. I can say the same about adults. The only reason--THE ONLY REASON--you can't kill them in Skyrim is because Bethesda didn't want to score an AO rating. If they could have included it and still pulled off an M rating, they would have. I guarantee it. As for my opinion on whether or not the game needs it: maybe. I admit that I was a little sad that my flames did nothing to the girl who kept picking on another boy. At the very least, the children should fall to a knee, similar to how the important NPCs do. And there should be a very large penalty for hurting a child. I don't think that it should be dismissed simply because they're children. And I don't think it should be included simply for "realism". I think there's more involved in making such a decision. EDIT: Did anyone notice that the villagers in the video started attacking the guard for going after the zombie child? That's actually pretty awesome.
"Children are innocent. They're at no fault and do not deserve any harm. You have to be pretty mentally ill to want to see this. I'm sorry." Then you best not be killing anything in that game that doesn't attack you first. They're innocent, after all. No animals, no neutral or friendly NPCs. No one. Or you're mentally ill -- or a goddamn hypocrite. I'm not sure which is worse. Kthxbye.
I don't think Jesus is going to appreciate this. Or Pedobear... ....PETA probably thinks this is better than hunting bunnies. Anyway, I won't use this mod but I don't care about it either. I don't see the point in it, or freaking out over it as well. It will solve nothing, but I do ask that modders please help fix frame issues and can we get some dragon riding abilities too?
I agree, if no one had told me I can't kill children in skyrim, I wouldn't know....why? because if I want immersion, my character chooses what I would choose in his place, and I wouldn't kill children, or any person who doesn't deserve it, I don't go around the city killing citizens I'm not saying it's ok to kill adults but not children, i'm just saying I don't care about this.
"So you just HAVE to murder children for your precious immersion to be complete?"
I hope GTA V has children NPCs
No! GTAV shouldn't have children. In fact, no game should come with that option out of the box. It doesn't matter what we all think about it. What matters is what the anti-video game whack jobs would do to the games industry after they find out some kid that shot up his school also liked GTAV. If we want to mod these things in the privacy of our own homes, fine. But let's not set the entire industry ablaze just because we think "we have the right".
"So you just HAVE to murder children for your precious immersion to be complete?" Sort of, yeah. Just knowing that the children are vulnerable creatures apart of the world, and not immortal monkeys, completes the immersion for me. Even with no intent to kill the children, I would download this mod. If full grown adults can be killed by me and other creatures, so should the children. Remember; They're just pixels, man.
That annoying Kid in Whiterun needs to die.. Sadly I only have the PS3 version, so no mods are available =[
I wonder if these people crying about this feel so bad about killing wolves. You know theyre only trying to find meat to take home to their litter of baby wolves who are going to starve or freeze when their mother fails to return.
What a pointless mod.
what a pointless article. there have been numerous of these types of mods. this is taking space for more varied news. nothing but useless tripe going to front page.
so you can't kill kids but you can kill another human being... fail logic Bethesda
think of the hate they would get.. so many people would be offended so i think they are very logical.. AND i think that even if Bethesda would want to let people kill children in their games the ESRB doesnt allow it :O
What an evil mod >:)
Meh, it's not like I need to kill them
The game's violent enough without this. Also, What maniac actually put the effort in to enable this? Must have been pretty eager to kill children. Fnck!ng weirdo...
i think you should step away from games and seek a psychiatrist if you mistake real ppl for polygons in a game. How old are the characters in the game hmmmm? you dont need to answer because they arent real they have no birthdays they have no age they dont exist.
I know I know, but it's what the whole thing is symbolic of or represents. Of course I KNOW it's not real but that's not the point at all. Being able to brutally murder children in a videogame necessarily cannot be real, but the depiction of such a thing is still disturbing in its own right and represents something which in reality is truly awful. I think this justifies thinking it to be kind of messed up. I don't consider it messed up on a real level, but on a symbolic one (to sum up) Also I just don't see why this NEEDED to be done. Why did whoever make this mod put in the effort they did? It's just a weird thing to put your energies into.
you bring up a good point MRMagoo123, i never really thought about it before but yea your right, its a video game. none of these characters are real so why not be able to kill them. if you can kill waves of defenseless people running away from you in a cod level i really dont see whats the big deal with killing a kid. IMO looking back at MW2 that level was way worse than what killing a kid would be in skyrim.
Well im kinda shocked at the replies here and am glad i see you understand thats it not real and there fore shouldnt really be put in the same category as real life, i know the mod seems pointless and all but a lot of mods are pretty useless if you look at what they do, but its really up to you personally whether you DL it or not so each to their own i guess. I wont DL it but i know other ppl will but i wont see them as crazy sickos that want to kill children.
"but the depiction of such a thing is still disturbing in its own right" So you find the depiction of a child being killed in a video game disturbing, yet you don't find the depiction of an innocent adult being killed in a video game disturbing? Killing an innocent adult DOESN'T represent something truly awful? You're either a hypocrite or an evil sicko who only cares about the lives of children and nobody else. I'm just going to go with hypocrite, as you don't seem so evil in your comment.
Why would you want to kill children in the first place???
Why would you want to kill humans in the first place?
Have you interacted with the children in Skyrim? Bethesda purposefully made them annoying, because of their invincibility.
I don't know if you heard ... Skyrim isn't real. When you kill someone in the game, no one actually dies. I know, it's like finding out Santa isn't real. :[ I'm sorry.
I don't know why people get all queasy when it comes to killing virtual children in some game as if its going to damage the brain more than killing virtual adults. If you feel so strongly about virtual non existent kids then why not do something more for the real life and blood kids in the world. If they ever die, they are gone for good and will never respawn.
Something is seriously wrong with you people. I'm pretty sure most of you are between 15-20.
Even though Im not in that range, why would age make a difference? Whats the difference in killing a short npc with a bratty squeaky voice and turning into a werewolf and tearing a poor beggar to pieces?
Its fun. i like to see them bleed to death.they mean nothing to me. its just a video game control your hormones.
Awesome i give this game 20/10.
they should make them wear call of duty shirts and hats....that wont make less horrible i think...
Non gamer response: That's terrible! Gamer response: That's terrible!... do they drop anything good?
Kill the.. I mean SAVE THE CHILDREN!!
I don't wanna kill them but I do wanna slap the big mouthed ones and make them cry.
I gave one a good ice spike through the head.
Looks like i am going to see this on FOX NEWS..
Unlikely. It'd make it to FOX if the mod let you kill fetuses though.
Most of the children are okay, except for Balgruff's kids.
THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN!
first and foremost get a grip ppl these arent kids they are polygons your not really killing them they arent alive, they dont even have an age ffs grow a brain. PPL are losing grip with reality if they think the people in games are real and should be treated as such. I myself would never go murdering ppl in real life but sometimes i like to save my game then slaughter a whole town just because i can. @blumatt your one of the most stupid ppl in the world, i suspect you must be some redneck hick considering you put "gay sex" in the same boat as rape wtf is wrong with you. I am far from being gay myself but that is beyond a joke imo.
blumatt your a straight up herpa derp.
gay sex in the same category as rape...
There are rape games in Japan btw.
even still its not like u are raping ppl in real life, imo if someone is beating off to a rape game thats their choice the problem comes if they do it in RL thats where its wrong, games are fantasy where you can do things you couldnt do in RL and should be kept like that. IMO i would rather ppl get off on games than try out these things in RL and i can bet most ppl that rape ppl or molest children didnt play a game that gave them the idea to do so.
Raping people is wrong in any sense game or real or even the thought Mr magoo ur sick
SKYRIM IS BALLS DEEP!
Kill the children save the food.
Kill the children, eat the children. End all poverty.
Wont somebody please, THINK OF THE CHILDREN !! Seriously, I dont see the big deal. ITS A GAME PEOPLE. You start acting like this is evil and your playing right into the hands of activist who say we cant tell the difference between reality and fantasy. Besides, its like what Matt and Trey say about Southpark. Where do you draw the line? They dont draw a line. Because either everythings ok to make fun of, or nothing is. Taking one thing seriously just paves the way to take it all seriously, and if you did that, well then they would be monsters. And what are we really taking about here at the basic level? A group of polygons representing a sword passing through a digital space occupied by another set of polygon represent a young human and then said model running an animation sequence designed to mimic death? Shocking. And FYI, read your Bible. No ones is innocent.
why is this an article?
Mods that enable you to kill childrens have been around for ages, you guys are idiots for making a big deal out of it now.
To be honest I'm starting to disagree with violence and how it's glorified in games in general. Sure IT'S NOT REAL, but the morality behind it all is just such nonsense. The supposed "heroes" you play as; slaughtering hundreds of people. There are so many games that completely ignore the morality of such violence by making it seem really awesome and asking questions later (often not at all.) I mean, games are escapism, but they've since entered the media and our lives quite significantly, and I think it's time they smarten up a bit. My point I suppose is that most games are utterly stupid, and I think that in order to survive, they'll have start being a lot more intelligent. No more attempting to represent REAL violence as "cool" or "fun", basically. Because it fucking is not.
I agree; games are fairly unintelligent. However, less violent is not equivalent to more intelligent. Many of the most well regarded movies and books are quite violent; yet, they still manage to remain intelligent. Also, if you consider Skyrim's violence to be realistic, I have to assume you have never experienced real violence.
I know, my point is that games portray violence in a non-intelligent way; without raising any of the moral issues surrounding it. And obviously I don't think the violence of Skyrim is like reality, but it's a matter of degree. Some games are closer to representing actual violence than others, and I'd say Skyrim gets closer than a lot of games. Many get closer. My point is that in being more realistic about your portrayal of violence, you can't neglect to introduce the moral aspect lest it become very problematic. As the graphics and realism bar is raised, I think violent games need to become much less about mindless carnage. If you're going to be real about sh!t, it's irresponsible to ignore the problems it raises.
I love how killing a child is so frowned upon, but killing innocent people, hookers, bums, etc. isn't frowned upon.
It's a game, who cares...
On youtube, flag it for child abuse. ;)
The only "child" I would do anything to in this game is Babbete and she's not a child. She's an annoying, 300 year old Vampire!
