Square Enix doesn't mind killing kids

I was able to see a lot of features during my demo with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I was able to see some of the gunplay, stealth combat, and Mexican culture within the game. And, I watched a kid die.

It's obvious Square is considered left that's for

Lmfao it’s obvious you’re a conservative religious nut then too. For someone so upset about “agendas” you sure have your own with these comments on every article I’ve opened today.

This is a tough topic to put forward correctly without sounding like a sick psycho but I'm glad they had the balls to do that, it's a video game, if you can get away killing many adult characters then I don't understand why kids are off limits. It would add a lot more shocking, emotional moments within a story or dive deep into some hard morale choices in RPG games. For example if you accidentally killed a child in Elder Scrolls VI during a brawl with the city guards only to have the child's parents hunt for you in a random encounter or lure you to a location, trapping you in some twisted puzzle death maze.

I remember playing Fallout 3 and entering Little Lamplight with the Mayor McCreedy telling me he was going to "blow my f***** head off" and I needed to find a way in, I was going to just blow the kids head off during my evil run but realised the kids were off limits. My mind was boggled, you see peoples torsos strung up, arms dismembered and heads during VATS blow up but because someone was a few years younger character made up of the same polygons was a big no no. It's even the same when driving around Grand Theft Auto, Watch Dogs, Red Dead Redemption etc and not seeing a single child in site, it just seems odd. Just takes out the immersion aspect of the game sometimes.

Sarah and Sam

When playing The Last of Us you (the player) don’t kill either Sarah or Sam. Besides Sam, Sarah and Ellie,I don’t recall any other children being in the game.

So? in this you don't kill a kid either he falls to his death hanging from a ledge.

Not every culture treats kids like westerners do.

"Teenagers" only exist in the west.
