[TG] GTA 5 Under Fire For Graphic Torture Scene - Page 28

post #271 of 299
I have to say that this torture scene is pretty controversial but I think we all know that. I have no opinion really, I don't want my kids to see it. I don't mind it being in a game (since it's rated M anyway) however. Anyone playing a "rated M" game should be used to this type of stuff already. Also if they are suddenly condemning this, then what happened to all the human brutality in Zombie games? You are blowing the limbs and guts out of sick people, unarmed victims, in the name of a video game. This scene itself probably is more meaningful than anything violent in any other bloody shooter and serves as great if not decent political commentary and/or satire (since it's the "FIB" that sanctioned this).

Like it or not, the damage is already done. I don't think it's worth pulling the game even if it did (if you think) step out of bounds in this instance. Nothing is flawless, and if GTA V isn't making a powerful statement about modern American living, I don't know what is.

Meh, Payback had a pretty brutal torture scene and I don't remember anyone freaking out about it.

So..its OK for thousands of FPS shooter spraying bullet kill people instantly but it is not ok to pull teeth from a human.

Average, brain-dead, plebeian, politically correct soccer moms and 9-5 Joe's got their panties in a bunch over some bullcrap that invoked any kind of emotion in their pathetic mundane lives, so they must rant about it publicly because they feel like their sheltered, meaningless lives have seen some form of flavor or color in it and they're not used to it like a fish out of water. If it wasn't this, it would be another video game or movie or song. Thank god freedom of speech has been mostly untouched in America.

remember, if you pretend something doesn't exist it will magically go away. depicting something, even in a satirical or critical way, encourages people to repeat the activity again-forget the whole history and function of art in western society. art should only exist if it is suitable for a 4 year old

I'm pretty sure these tech sites like to stir up the sort of drama for page hits. I haven't seen this reported on the news anywhere else.

I just did the torture mission, it was so tame I couldn't believe people are getting upset.

The game Manhunt was far more brutal.

The only thing I find disturbing about this article is that there are enough people out there that can't deal with a torture scene in a video game. God damn it, I mean, I shouldn't be this angry about it, but I seriously hate how PG our world has become. I actually am writhing with anger at these people because of how ignorant they are. These people are what's wrong with the world today. OCN is lucky it has a language filter right now mad.gifmad.gif
