Hatred is an offensive premise disguised as 'fun'

GameZone's Matt Liebl: "When it comes to video games, I’m all for freedom of expression. But a new game from “experienced” indie developer Destructive Creations has me questioning my own belief."

yeah its too early for this kind of talk...haven't even had a drink yet.

Gaming........ gaming never changes

Spinal1885d ago

Gameplay wise the game looks good but it needs more objectives than just kill kill kill. It will get old FAST.

thegood331885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Just wait until VR is perfected...going to be a thousand times more scary than this.

Did they seriously rip off the Doom logo?

Riggans421885d ago

I don't even know what words to use to describe this game.

morganfell1885d ago

"When it comes to video games, I’m all for freedom of expression."

Apparently not.

ThunderPulse1885d ago

The writer is a dumb @$$ hypocrite.

Highlife1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Doubt you even bothered to read it. If your younger than 12 I will give you a pass if not then you have problems. So go back and read the article and then give a valid remark.

And I completely agree with the author.

Umm, actually there's no contradiction there. He doesn't have to like something and can question its existence. He's not calling for censorship.

Freedom of expression also = freedom to criticise.

Imo this could be an interesting game if there's more to it than using shock value to sell copies. Which is pretty lame.

morganfell1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Uhm, the writer is discussing ARTISITC FREEDOM. We are discussing ARTISITC FREEDOM. Freedom of expression does not equal artisitc freedom unless you are attempting to state a critique is art. It isn't.

The second you state, "Thats's going too far..." you no longer believe in artisitic freedom. You can like it or not like it, but when you begin setting limits for the behavior and character of the art of others then you have lost that idea of freedom.

Bimkoblerutso1884d ago

No, you can believe in the right for the game to exist but still personally feel that it crosses a moral line.

For instance, I think this game should be allowed to be made and released to the general public, but I also hope it fails miserably because I have always had ZERO respect for shock art.

morganfell1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

The right for the game to exist isn't what people are saying. You are not comprehending my remarks. As I have stated in two threads about this game, you can like it or dislike it, but stating that the the game should not exist, attempting to quash artistic freedom is inherently wrong. Young people never learned the expression, "I disagree with what you are saying but I will defend to the death your right to say it." It is hypocritical on the parts of these people that always attack the press for similar stances to suddenly take one themselves.

Highlife1885d ago

If there was a game that was a real killing simulator told you how to kill how to rape how to go to school and shoot everyone and enjoy it would you still be all for freedom of speech. Because according to you this game should see the light of day.

morganfell1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

For the last time...since you refuse to read, we are talking about ARTISTIC FREEDOM.





As regards speech, I do believe in freedom of speech. And that info you are talking about? It is all over the internet already so you are, as you have readily demonstrated, too late.

Run along now and live in your close-minded little censorship world where a minority tells the majority what to think, say, believe, and do.

aliengmr1884d ago


Art is speech, so no there isn't a difference. I mean legally what you are saying is wrong, like all wrong.

TekoIie1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

While I did find the trailer uncomfortable there is one thing that we should all agree on and that the author should acknowledge:

Art is a form of speech. Which means if you're not in favor of that simple statement, you are anti free speech, and against the very same laws which allow people to maintain a job as a critic.

As a website you can choose not to promote the game, but you cannot dictate it's right to exist.

I don't see how it's different then call of duty were you massacre armies of enemies.

Mulletino1885d ago

The difference is cod represents war being fought by two groups of people called armies who chose to do battle over an idea they feel is worth dying for. I kind of see what you are saying as far as civillians dying as a result of war but cod does not portray that. Hatred is a person murdering innocent people.

001885d ago

two things

1: it's fictional
and 2: your're are still massacring people

I don't see this any different than going on a killing spree in gta other then the edge factor.

Elwenil1885d ago

Someone seems to have forgotten the "No Russian" mission in CoD.

donwel1885d ago

So Hatred is like Grand Theft Auto in that respect then.

Highlife1885d ago

Then you are to immature to tell the difference.

001885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Then tell me o wise one what's the difference between kill faceless fictional enemies in call of duty to kill faceless fictional civilians from this game.

I play multi-player games where i do nothing but kill people to win the game and I'm sure most gamers have too, so whats the difference between doing that and playing this game.

unless you only play games like Mario and others like it that only get rated T and lower, it seems quite hypercritical to throw a fuss and act a holier then thou to those who know it's fictional.

Highlife1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Please I don't pretend to be wise or holier then the next person. Don't believe in God but that is beside the point. This game has no class no value at all. Basically it's about cold blooded murder. You brought up multiplayer fine that is basically a game you get a point if I kill you and you respawn it's about getting points to win. In hatred it's not about that it's about killing someone for no reason yes it's fictional but completely different. The mindset in this game is murder.

Frankly I'm all for freedom of speech but be prepared for the consequences. Just because you say what you want doesn't mean people can't say what they want back. And I for one think this game is disgusting.

001885d ago

so in others words your just saying "stop making things i don't like"

"You brought up multiplayer fine that is basically a game you get a point if I kill you and you respawn it's about getting points to win"

I find this point comical how do you know Hatred doesn't give you points to win from killing? clearly if you put an objective on why you are mass murdering fictional people it completely nullifies the fact that your mass murdering fictional people, seems quite hypocritical to be content with mass killing in MP games to win, yet to denounce that this game is only about murder when you are doing the exact same thing in pretty much every other game I find it to be funny.

Mulletino1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

You have to be trolling. How can you not see a difference between someone defending their country or clan or state or whatever and someone just going out to kill innocent people for no reason. No one said that we didn't want this person not to make the game I am just trying to respond to your comment that the mentality is different than cod (which I'm not even a big fan of).

jambola1882d ago

The difference is in call of duty it's kill or be killed
if you can't see the difference you must be blind,
a child could point out the difference to you
