[DS] GOG Refusing To Sell Hatred - Page 13

post #121 of 244
And nothing of value was lost. I won't lose any sleep over a junk game not being sold on GOG. Big deal.

All I see from Hatred is a stupid game that is only being propped up by the controversy surrounding it. It's all fluff and no substance. It's only appealing to the "im 16 and im so edgy" crowd. It's pretty much the same situation that happened with Gone Home except on the other side of the spectrum.

Check out the new one when you can. I think it's out of Beta now.

If they would actually introduced the game in a decent way and used the whole murdering stuff just as a background a lot less people will have trouble with it.

Some stores simply don't want to be associated with this kind of stuff.

Something like this?

Banned in over ten countries, realistic, non-stop-killing, action-strategy psychological thriller. No aliens, no mutants, no stupid quest for the dragon's balls. Just good antisocial, psychotic shoot-'em-up action, strategy and government intervention.

Blast, maim and fire-bomb your way through 17 levels (plus 4 new levels and 24 new characters in the expansion pack). Exploit mass murder opportunities, mow down marching bands, spray protesters, charbroil whole towns. Enter multiplayer mode Go Postal with up to 15 other death row candidates.

Surely that's a marketing stunt and revels in mass murder etc.
There's no ifs or buts about it, This is a publicity stunt from gog to get more attention related to galaxy. If they really had strong views against such things they would apply it to all games including there own.

With that said, we don't fully understand the content and what lengths Hatred actually goes to express what it sets out to do. Maybe it could turn out to be a game like "This war of mine" and really gets you thinking... Doubtful but you never know.

But postal was never rated AO (neither was carmageddon for that matter), only M. Most stores wont sell AO rated material because its so easy for children to get ahold of. Steam may have decided to sell this particular game but look at all the AO rated stuff they don't sell.

 Just buy what you want from whoever has it. Not everything is for everyone. Let people run things their own way and it will lead to more and more specialization. I welcome that.

Still, I don't really know what the fuss is. Like many have said, if they don't want to stock it, I can respond by any means I'd like. If I want to black-list them, I can. If I want to buy only certain games, sure, why not? It doesn't have to be rational, just like they don't have to justify why they're not selling it.

I personally don't agree with it but in the end they're a store front and can decide what products they get in, just as I decide if I want to walk through the front door or not. It's not a big deal.

In terms of gameplay from what I've seen it's pretty basic and not thought provoking what so ever.

It's basically taking the concept of the GTA murder rampage and making a game dedicated strictly to that concept with a lot of detail put into how destructable the environment is, heck you can even drive cars. It's definitely no worse than any postal game in terms of controversy bar the tone which is pretty grim to be honest.

Art style and tone, sure. But the core concept and what you can/have to actually do to people remains constant.

Yes you're correct in that the end result is the same. The issue with your argument is that the severity and manner in which the violence is presented obviously DOES matter to a lot of people. It may not matter to you and to all the other defenders of the game but obviously many people disagree.

Is it hypocritical? Sure, but it's not unfathomable that people will feel this way. I can watch a normal UFC fight without flinching but I get squeamish when I see too much blood or giant open wounds. Both scenarios involve two men beating the heck out of each other but only one makes me turn my head away. So yes, I'm a hypocrite and I'm not the only one. That's not necessarily a bad thing though.

Heck, they sell Hitman, a game where you literally can go around and choke people to death.

Except they aren't Steam. headscratch.gif So I don't see the point...
