I realize it's more realistic than other zombie games, but it was gutwrenching to see the kid in the trailer.I like my zombie games to be more like L4D. Fun.
That's the part that makes me WANT to play the game!
I usually hate zombie games.
You think dead children is a selling point? You should really seek out a mental health expert.
Does that really mean I need mental help?
The sane reaction to the image of dead children is disgust, revulsion, maybe sadness or even fear depending on the circumstances. Considering your reaction to it, however, yeah, if I were you, I'd probably talk to a professional about this.
Yeah, but it's just a video game. I know how to separate reality from a bunch of pixels on a screen that came together to make an image of a person.
That may be true, I'm not going to say one way or the other if it is or isn't. The problem is, there was genuine glee at the mention of a child dying. Video Game or not, that's some scary shit right there.
I realize that it's probably more realistic and more like the movies, but part of what makes L4D and Resident Evil fun is that it's not realistic, and there's a sense of fantasy to it.
I realize that zombies, on the whole, aren't realistic and are fantastical, but leaving kids out of it would be preferable.
Not to mention, a guy who design video games, a father of a little girl, watched the trailer and couldn't finish it. It bothered him that much.
If a guy who creates sometimes sick video games can say "Whoa. I draw the line here." then it must be pretty bad.
It's certainly not something to get joy out of. It's not a selling point, or at least it shouldn't be.
