Sony Exec Defends The Last Of Us 2 Trailer


Via GameSpot

Quote:
The newest trailer for The Last of Us Part II that aired during Sony's briefing at Paris Games Week generated a lot of discussion over its level of violence. We saw an arm broken with a hammer. We saw people hanged. We saw an arrow through the face. It was unquestionably violent. Now, PlayStation executive Jim Ryan has responded to criticisms, saying in a new interview with The Telegraph that The Last of Us Part II "obviously is a game made by adults to be played by adults."

"I should never prejudge this but it will probably be rated 18, I think it's fair to say," Ryan explained. "And there's that market for those people who like that sort of game. Adults who like that sort of game. And I think we cater for that..."

Yes please. I don't have a PS4 anymore, but if any game would get me to look into going dual console again in the future, it'd be this one.

Label it properly and leave them alone. We're all offended by something. Change the channel if you don't like it and move along. Don't behave like a millennial snowflake or an ancient 'get off my lawn' grandpa. Find what you like and support it!

Closest you're gonna get is Senran Kagura: Peach Bleach Splash! The intro cutscenes alone were ummm... very exciting.

I think the issue was that they showed two really violent trailers back-to-back. When you have a captive audience that is there just to see the new games, it might be a little off-putting to show realistic violence against people that is so graphic.

Detroit and Last of Us were both pretty intense trailers. Domestic abuse and torture... Rough subject matter.

I thought the Last of Us trailer looked good (where's the game???) but the Detroit one was pretty insane to put in a game... protecting a child from an abusive father. Yikes.

How am I supposed to play games about domestic abuse and torture with my kids watching? This is getting ridiculous. I don't ban them from watching Destiny or AC, etc, but this makes even Gears of War look tame.

I made a horrible parenting choice just letting my 6 year old watch the latest Transformers movie with us because of the constant stream of foul language. This is TRANSFORMERS that I was all gaga over when I was 6. He then ended up saying "this is fucking shit" during a time out at school. A SIX YEAR OLD. Who has been saying for years "don't worry daddy, I don't hear bad words" every time we talked to him about it.

Later, he said "I'm going to kill you all" in response to some kids saying they hate him sometimes.

Parenting is impossible. My 6 year old already thinks he's 16 with the attitude to match.

The Greeks were the shit, man. Sophocles was awesome. And the kid's probably right.

It was pretty brutal; but so is that game world. So is our world. Most humans are animals and there isn't much holding us to the social contract which keeps us from tearing each other to bits; tribe by tribe and eventually person by person. Only being in the lands of plenty do many of us have the luxury of arguing the niceties of such things because it feels so far removed. It takes the rare person to rise above and try to create something greater and inspire others to greater heights.

The trailer doesn't hold back from showing our worst selves. Hopefully the game also gives the chance to show our best selves.

I thought the trailer could have used some sodomy and eye gouging.

Mortal Kombat X has pretty well maxed out the gore factor. Its whatever at this point.

People were upset because of the acting.

I hope this was tongue in cheek. If not you're a fucking idiot that sucks at parenting.

What was brutal was the unrealistic amount of lean muscle the independent woman hanging by her neck had in a end world situation.

Or how brutally ugly the asian woman was.

How feminine and meek the asian male looked.

Loved the thugish male taking orders from the female leader.


SJW'S, Survival edition. *slow claps*

next you'll tell me the buff woman is pregnant with eli's magical lesbian child pregnancy.

Careful if you get the SJW'S aroused they might take legal action due to mental and physical sexual assault.
