In an interview years ago, the Goldeneye 007 director revealed that Miyamoto and Nintendo were not at all pleased with the in-game violence of the James Bond game, so they suggested some ways to tone it down.
well, I have a feeling we'll be coming back to those days with how everyone is offended by something...
Outwardly...it has more to do with validation than offence. I think back to the 90s when DOOM was offending the religious middle class... parents were genuinely offended by the violent material...idiotic mentality of course, but I genuinely believe their core sensibilities/morals felt attacked. Much like Marilyn Manson's music did. I don't really buy that today. We're so exposed to every pit of the human experience that I don't actually believe that raving lunatics on Twitter actually feel that offended by ANYTHING they claim. It's just trendy/herd mentality. The resulting effect is the same of course...your favourite show/host/artist is suddenly 'cancelled' because some screeching 17 year old vegans on the internet couldn't apparently tolerate that they used an old-fashioned term or some other trivial nonsense... but the disingenuousness of it all is really irritating me at the min.
I’m a little offended that you had feelings in regards to this article. I’d like to schedule a zoom call with you to discuss this matter further. We can iron it out with a virtual handshake. If this works for you, have your therapist and lawyer call mine.
You, sir get a thumbs up. Best comment, lol.
Meanwhile Ganondorf throws up blood, and Link then goes to impale him in the throat as Ganon.
Meanwhile, Eternal Darkness was a GameCube exclusive that came out 5 years after Goldeneye 007, and it contained horror, blood, and psychological terror, among other things. haha. Nintendo can be really weird about how they want to filter things.
I miss Eternal Darkness dearly. ):
Eternal Darkness needs a sequel and a full fledged remake!
