Eating people in a game. - Page 11

Odd isn't bad though. And it's not like we're advocating cannibalism, just wanting a new venue for fringe gaming interests. Our of all the horror genres out there, the most cannibalism related games happen to be mainstream adventure rpgs... ie: Fallout.
With all the first person killing games out there, people being evicerated left and right, shot up, dismembered... at least with cannibalism someone gets dinner too wink.gif

There is a difference between fps and people being shot and killed and flat out cannibalism though. In fact I don't even think it's remotely comparable.

Put it this way, I'm willing to bet that probably 9/10 people reading this thread would "pull the trigger" if put in a situation where they and another person had a gun, and the other had the intent of killing them. On the flip side I'm willing to bet that only 1/10 people (the OP being the 1 lol) would then feel the need to "pull out the forks and knives" after the trigger was pulled.

I wouldn't be so sure. In dire situations, I'd bet more people than you'd think capable would be willing to eat another person if the food supply was unavailable. Survival is a strong motivating source.

In the end, we're talking about a game subject. Death is death in a game, and there are many more grotesque ways to die/kill people in already existing games aside from eating them (as a human, not a monster). It seems all the ideas a plot origination themes floating around are being ignored here to go back to the same argument that 'cannibalism is wrong, etc etc'.

Sure, a AAA dev may not make a game like this due to the bueracracy above them, but a good indie dev could make a name for themselves if they make a game like this and do it right. Time and again it has been proven, people will pay for violence and the macabre. A fringe topic like this would actually be exciting in the grim way people like, BECAUSE It's taboo. Spend 1-2 years in development on a game, release for $10-15 on Steam Greenlight or the like.... ???.... profit biggrin.gif

the second or third seems to be most appealing, where to find them?

Personally, I get scared when I see my own shadow, so I would never have any interest in anything like that, but hey.... there may be a market for that sort of twisted genre. thumb.gif

that's no horror. Who would find cannibalism horror and not disgusting?

I'm honestly surprised that this thread is still alive. Not that it would be taken down just had thought we had all beaten the proverbial dead horse with it.

I really don't know how much of a strong story you could have centered around the player eating people.

Try playing Spec Ops: The Line... you can do worse than cannibalism.

Just look at Twilight, that was centered around vampires, and it's still one of the great comedies of the last 10 years.
