The Walking Dead and Violent Games

Violence and gore, when used properly, can be brilliant tools with tremendous dramatic potential, and it's easy to defend their use. When they become gratuitous in that they become content in and of themselves, that's when we wind up with lunacy like tomorrow's Supreme Court case. It's never too late to start asking the right questions.

The story is too old to be commented.

Watched it online yesterday and it was Great! All in the spirit of halloween my weekend was great! Spent Saturday watching Dawn of the Dead , Land of the Dead and the Decent(they were on TV) and played a little bit of Silent hill.

Ya, they did a really good job with this show. I thought it would just be another zombie exploit but its very entertaining and has a very good story to it.

thank god for cable, it's nice to watch "big boy" programs.

i just read that the walking dead was the most watched show in amc history and rightfully so, it was awesome.

Absolutely. Games could really learn a lot from the show.

The Walking Dead premiere was great; I'm looking forward to the rest of the T.V. adaptation.

And I do agree that video games can learn much from the series's use of violence, but I don't think that means we should encourage developers to limit their expression in the hopes that we fend off another legislative effort to limit the sale of M-rated games to minors. We'd be playing right into their hands.
