Not at all and all the hoopla didn't dissuade me in the slightest. Seeing opinion piece after opinion piece saying how terrible it was did get in my nerves!

I find it hilarious that the woman protesting the game thinks you get points if the girl die. Maybe she should research Quantic Dream and the games they've released.

After reading your article I do believe that people interpret things wrong. As you stated with the woman believing the guy was the abuser. I find that making a game believable and have you build a connection is great story writing like Beyond two Souls or in certain cases Max Payne. Putting us in a controversial situation to either save or let someone go drives us as gamers. That's why I am looking forward to the story of God of War since now he has a kid with him I want to see where that goes.

I thought it was one of the greatest game trailors ever produced.

Dealing with difficulty issues is a positive. Hiding away from them does not help anybody.

I felt an instant emotional connection. "I need to save that little girl" & "Come on. You can do it android/robot lady, save the day." That's what went through my mind.
