In regards to the recent trailer release of the game "Hatred": Upon browsing the internet, I discovered a distressing trailer released today, which clearly depicts a man claiming he “hates this world.. and it’s time to kill and to die.”.
I don't know? Get a piece of chalk, draw a line and place a video game over the line. Then your answer will be revealed.
~Press A to look with interest.
i have no interest in this game and what its about plus i think the plot is messed up and disgusting but people that blame games for violence are gonna have a field day with this connecting it to future school shootings and shootings of any public place.
Do it movies "oh that looks entertaining" Do it video games "THIS IS WRONG!! Sprinkle some holy water on it!"
The shock will get people interested but unless there are goals, boss battles and progressively harder enemies. I can see this getting old pretty quick.
Where were these people when Postal 3 came out?
Has this one video game crossed your personal line? Apparently. Video games are a medium, not a country, and anyone with a computer can make one. Some random game no one's ever heard of doesn't represent a collective crossing of an imaginary line.
lines are subjective. if it has crossed the line for you. However people have rights and freedom of speech if you're talking about in America so there is literally no line to cross for video games. You can not support games and not like them...but they can do whatever they please. Moot point.
Movies can get away with far more mature content than a game can.
They have plenty movies that are more violent, and books for that matter. The game looks somewhat interesting, good for a bad day. Now if someone could make a game about being in stuck in traffic after work and you car turning into a monster truck so you run over the driver....or a road rage game that allows you to shoot people that cut you off and don't signal would work too.
As stupid as this is, there were other games in which you just violentl kill people. Postal anyone?
Videogames are art. They are meant to cross as many lines as possible.
No. Now shut up and either play games or get out. Tired of controversies being made out of nothing.
This game will come and go like a bad smell until the next controversy. Really, it will. It get a cult following, maybe a sequel and that's it.
