The Most Anticipated Games of 2015

The Game Fanatics: 2014 was a strong year for video games despite the absurd number of games that launched either unfinished or virtually unplayable. We saw the likes of Dragon Age Inquisition blow our minds with its storytelling and polish, we ventured into the creaky, abandoned Nostromo ship in Alien: Isolation and we saw one of the best character action games to release in recent memory in Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U.

The Witcher 3 will be awesome and can't wait for P5.

Bloodborn will most likely be a must have for any fan of the Souls series.

Still not that sold on MGS5, the demo was ok but didn't really capture that MGS feeling for me. Currently the MP is the only thing that looks really interesting for me.

How Realistic Is Too Realistic for Video Games?

Video Games have become much more realistic at depicting violence. Are we reaching a breaking point between realism and violence?

The more realistic the better in my books.

How realistic is too realistic for films/shows?


I think rape crosses the line for realism in a video game. If there is a rape scene in a game it shouldn’t be graphic. I’m all for dismemberment and gore but rape doesn’t sit well with me.

DarXyde2h ago

It wouldn't sit well with me either, but if everyone carved up depictions of violence according to their own sensibilities, there would be no violence in games at all.

Certainly, the suggestion to not be too graphic with rape is probably something everyone can agree on. Even Game of Thrones kept it relatively kosher. In reality, I suppose a depiction only needs to go as far as effectively communicating how evil/violent characters are. The article take about MK1, but I think that's always been what draws or repulses an audience to Mortal Kombat. The use of extreme violence in a game like The Last of Us actually works very well for narrative purposes. It really helped to immerse me into Part II where I despised Abby (until the end, I suppose) and really understood how batshit insane the Seraphites/Scars are. In the absence of that extreme depiction as a narrative tool, you get the sense that the world is sanitized and "inauthentic".

For me, it is exactly that extreme violence that gets me into the mindset that we're dealing with some truly reprehensible characters and you get to understand the extent of their evil.

Imagine Jigsaw as a character without the horrible deaths: you'd just think he's setting people up for failure. With that violence, there's much more precision in capturing the type of person he is.

Just my thinking.

That's fair. For me it depends on how it's depicted and what's the context behind the event.

"I'm all for dismemberment and gore but rape..."

Fuck sake, that is totally messed-up and the reason why we are here with this nonsense attitude towards anything sexual in games. Attempted rape scene in Tomb Raider 2012 game, which some outlets got all pissy about but none gave a crap about the many gruesome death scenes.

If a game is clearly marked as having extreme content, then all cards should be on the table (aside from any underage nonsense). It seems Japanese sex games include unwilling participants as a fetish. Not for everyone, I get that but rape is just too taboo in the West but killing someone is totally acceptable, encouraged even.

Fucked-up that is.

The biggest question that should be asked is. Do we actually need rape in games? Short answer NO. But if a dev wants to make a game that includes that then let them. Consumers can use their right to choose and NOT PLAY IT.


Unrecord using UE5 is the most realistic I seen yet. Almost mistaken it for real life footage 😁 https://www.youtube.com/wat...

All the better if it gets more realistic. It's a video game. If people cannot tell the difference between real life and a video game then maybe that someone shouldn't be playing any kind of violent game.
