The worst part about it is that media will explode over it because some parent let their kid buy it (Chances are it's MA, just like the GTA series, but people still let middle schoolers and even younger play them) and he'll end up doing something stupid and use the game as his excuse, as it's been done with GTA.

What's so different about killing humans vs killing Zombies, Aliens, etc? When you get down to it, there have probably been games like this before, hell take Fallout as an example. NV sucked really bad with the storyline, and you end up wiping out dozens of tribes, enslaving others, etc. But I guess since thats "Futuristic" that was ok.

I watched the trailer and thought that the game looked like a load of shit to be honest. Quite frankly the only people who will play this are people who already have these sorts of violent tendencies because it just looked so boring and pointless. I don't think it's a mass murder training product because in real life when some idiot is running about with a gun thinking that he has some right to choose who lives and who dies, there are law enforcement/armed forces personnel to remedy the situation.
It's as simple as this, if you have a problem with this world and hate everyone in it to the point that you feel that they desperately need to kill, don't kill others, kill yourself, this isn't the ancient world, you aren't taking anyone with you, either put up with tolerating all the ignorant, overly opinionated bastards on the planet or leave (alternatively you could sit in your darkened room taking on the persona of (what looks to me like) a fat, digitalised rastafarian with mental health problems.

don't rally see how this is anything new. games have been more bloody with each one topping the last.

why is mass murder any different than regualar old murder?

i don't get it. and i dont see a problem with the game since there is no connection between game violence and real world violence.

I didn't watch the trailer because the description given reminds me of "Postal". I did not complete that game because it was boring, so I have no interest in others like it. Which includes "Manhunt" too.

Well, there are worse games.

Such as Ethnic Cleansing. From Wikipedia:


Ethnic Cleansing (2002) is a computer game developed by Resistance Records, an underground music label owned by the National Alliance[1] specializing in Neo-Nazi and white supremacist bands.

In the game, the protagonist (the player can choose either a neo-Nazi or a Klansman) runs through a ghetto killing African-Americans and Latinos, before descending into a subway system to kill Jews. Finally he reaches the "Yiddish Control Center", where a fictionalized version of Ariel Sharon, then Prime Minister of Israel, is directing plans for world domination. The player must kill him to win the game.

So the point is to kill as many random people as you can, damn. At least on GTA you have to choose to do that, this is gonna be quite controversial.

Reminds me of when COD got that shit for you killing guys at an airport.

I imagine this will be banned in places.

I aint no 'BAN VIDEO GAMES' but I wouldn't be against this getting the chop.

My actual views? unless there's more to the game it shouldn't come out.

What we need:

Less censorship of all kinds.
Better mental healthcare.

Sane people can handle this stuff fine, no matter if it's violence or porn.
But also, unstable people like this type of media for very different reasons. But it isn't the media in question that makes them that way.

What we need to do is cure or treat the underlying mental illness for people that are likely to commit insane crimes, not ban stuff.

Edit:
[But as far as the last few posts, agreed, bigoted stuff should GTFO. If it's to promote bigoted hate groups, it's propaganda, not media.]

If in a game (or even real life) someone is killing aliens, monsters or invading forces in defence or their home, their planet or their person, that's a normal living organism's reaction to danger, so I don't see how it would be hypocritical. Are you one of these people who thinks that if someone breaks into your house and threatens your life, it's wrong to kill them in self defence?

In this game the guy is killing people because he's fed up with the world and the people in it. No one is threatening his life so he has no reason to harm anyone, his motivations are completely selfish and therefore evil. The fact is that he's a rampage or spree killer, there isn't any other plot.

Oh and by the way, the word "genocide" doesn't apply to this game or the other scenarios you suggested.

Also generally speaking there are lots of people who have a problem with violence in games in general, regardless of the species or criminality of the victims.

Well, maybe the game will help decrease youth violence even more?

Alright i've went and seen the trailer and videos about what people are saying about it. Firstly let me just say deep breath, HOLY HELL this guy needs a friend,and i am not volunteering for the role.
I can certainly see how this would bother people it made me cringe a little and im no stranger to violent games. How do i want to word this. i cant see any company/retailer openly advertising this game for the sake of saving face. So other than word of mouth (which isn't all that reliable) and media criticism which you knew was coming i dont think i would of ever heard of this game.
As for what i actually think of this game? It doesn't look all that great but then all i have seen a single early trailer, it dosen't look like anything you haven't already seen in a videogame aside from the main characters motivation, which seems like he's trying to pick a fight with peoples moral value. i cant see this having any multiplayer aside from like a cops and robbers mode, that and it also would be weird for this to be co'op. it'll probably end up being an indie game or something close. Despite all i've said I'll probably pick it up anyways just to check it out but ill hold my opinions until it is actually released, if it get released.

Also thanks for the alternate upload TheOmegaForce, i could have found it if i actually look-looked for it (that "looks" weird lol) but i was being lazy.
