    They failed to take into account that David Cage exists. If anyone could make a game like that work, it would be that dude.
     
    I see this as a case of "Good idea / intention, poor execution".

    Depends on how he handles it and how far he goes to show things.

    As do I.
    As for David, I think that TOO would be a case of "Good idea, poor execution."
     
      Why? You're not David Cage.
    Huehuehuehue

    First things first:
     

     
     
    What do you guys think of their presentation?
    My personal take:
     
     
    If you want to learn more and donate to help the children of South Sudan, here are some places other than Unicef.
    UNHCR, WFP, Mercy Corps, and Save The Children.

    On the child awareness issue.... I find the shock value of this wasted as people starts walking out.
    If they did the same with movies and books, it would be a really interesting multi-focus campaign, but I doubt they'll move beyond this single ad.
    On the game side....
    I picture the game being as harsh as This War of Mine. But even more personal and gritty.
    Will you resort to prostitution? Will you steal? Will you enter a criminal gang to compensate the violence you're presented against? Will you kill for food? Of course, any graphic content should be extremely well presented. Making this an excuse for underage porn would only demerit the message of the game.
    Also, we've had something simmilar, although a lot less gritty, in the Telltale zombie game. The protagonist is a girl, and you can choose to kill or steal to survive.
    But I fear the society in general and the gaming one in particular would not take such a game well.
    Hatred has created so much controversy without children or sex involved.....

    Well with the recent showcase of the upcoming Zelda WiiU I gotta say, I'm really looking forward to this game when it's finally released, what do you guys think of it so far?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aklpJK0RcTM This is the demo to the game if you haven't seen it yet.

    Just make a documentary and not deceive gamers like this.

    I think a line that's telling is "What is too much for a videogame?"
     
    To that I say, What is too much for a book? Or a film? Or any other medium? I gather the impression that they really don't understand that games as an art form can and have tackled mature themes. They appear to assume a lot about the medium and it makes them seem very ignorant of it in my opinion.

    What is censorship?

    Games shouldn't have to justify themselves in such a way to have the right to exist. If you find it distasteful, don't buy it. Others do like it and shouldn't be denied that game just because people who won't buy it don't like it.

    It really annoys me just how much moralizing is going on over videogames lately and the return of the Thompson-esque viloence rhetoric. I'd think by 2014 we'd be passed that.
     
    I hope GOG steps up and sells it. Really, Steam has too much power - they ban something, it's effectively banned on PC. There are other storefronts and I'd be happy to see Steam actually have to compete to maintain their position. I hope GOG gets more games so the anti-DRM revolution can truly begin.

    Well that's not gonna help this game get out.
     
    I personally don't like the game, but I sure as heck aren't going to stop anyone who's interested in it from buying it either.

    I mean, it's not like it's Manhunt. Oh wait.
    For me, it's just a game. I actually look forward to this when/if it comes out.

    And it makes it so hard to have an opinion on it. On the other hand, Steam's still selling Postal 2. And it's suspicious that this happens right now, just after Target and Kmart stop selling GTA5 in Australia, and not weeks ago.

    Same thing for gaming websites with biased opinions like IGN and Gamespot, they are just being dicks and gave an overhyped and recycled games like CODAW a 9.1/10 for graphics and Kevin Spacey shit. I hope next year that IGN or Gamespot will fire some reviewers and journalist and hire better ones to listen to what the gamers are saying.

    Being able to talk about #GamerGate in a gaming forum meant for gamers to discuss game related things.
    Asides that, video games to stop being rushed and being corrupted by Corporate Commander would be nice.

    Is that going to be on, before or while you're playing Tomb Raider?
