Hatred – The State Of Violent Video Games?

WTF?  Is this game seriously going to be put on the shelves?

After watching the about preview, I really wish it was an elaborate troll.  I don’t consider myself particularly sensitive to violence… but that trailer is just disgusting.  What demographic is this appealing to?  The forever alone wannabe serial killer?  This looks so many levels in violence above Grand Theft Auto, it appears to be barely even comparable.

I don’t know about you guys, but in all the past games I’ve played I was never like “This game is good… BUT I really wish I could stab cops in the face to kill them and have it look realistic, and also execute people by placing a gun in their mouth and pulling the trigger.   Yea… I’ll be happy when I can finally do that!” <— *smh*

Hatred-Video-Game-LogoENDO DEMANDS ACTION!  haha.  Seriously though I’m glad I don’t have kids I need to explain stuff like this game to.

Thoughts?

It’s a new clone of Postal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDemhscUclA) one of many, most fail.

Oh yea, I remember Postal now that you mention it. Very cartoonish though compared to this game.

Andrew got it right. Most fail, this one too. Although graphic, it has a pretty cheesy look to it. Now if some 16 year old goes on a mass shooting rage and they find the game in his room – it’s all over.

I didn’t know the Postal game, but no surprise it failed if the ONLY purpose is to constantly kill people for the sake of killing people.
I hope this one is just a “buzz-artifact” for a studio…

The purpose of Postal 2 was actually to do perfectly mundane daily chores. The first mission is “pick up milk.”

They just give you access to weaponry and let you murder people and do all sorts of horrible things… if you WANT to. But once again. Your objective is “pick up milk.”

I had fun with them when they were new, but they’re really mundane games. There is more graphic violence in every single Dead Space.

The first one was radically different. In Postal 1 you simply had to kill everyone.

I don’t know, you can do most of that in GTAV. It’s just not as emo.

Wow. Pretty intense. I wish they would just come out with a good 3d Mario game already.

Looks like they are hoping for shock value to drive sales… I’m sure Fox News will pick up the story and try to start a moral panic.

Probably not the wisest choice to make this game as your companies first game… but they are 10 Polish kids so I doubt they have a well thought out business plan.

how many polish kids does it take to screw up a video game?

Well, ever since I had my copy of Custer’s Revenge stolen I’ve been kinda too sad to do much gaming.

This game looks to be a heap of shit. I predict it will sell millions.

Am I the only one that remembers GTA when it was a overhead game that looked like you drove around micro machines? This is such a generic game premiss. If this doesn’t grab the censorship and gun nazi I don’t know what will. I can hear them know “it’s this kind of influence and weaponry we need to stop!”

Ill keep my fredom and guns, you can keep the games (change)

You are not the only one who remembers. I am pouring out a 40 oz for my dead homies who died on the streets of overhead GTA.

I think this is a massive trolling against the “video games makes people violent” claim.
Make a sickeningly violent spree killer “simulator” and see if it would really affect people’s behavior.
If this game comes out and nothing happens, then video games don’t really make people violent (at least not as immediate as some media claims)
I do hope this troll succeeds and the game will be quietly forgotten in couple of months.

Troll or not, they still have a right to make and sell it as much as we have a right to not buy it.

Also, props to giving them more free publicity.

Looks boring. I’ll admit to playing postal as an angsty 15yo.

It gets dull mowing down people mighty quick.

His game is different than most of the others out there because it flips the morality script. It looks like a murder simulator. And when one kid goes nuts and shoots people in a mall and says he’s a fan of this game, guess who is going to get shit on again.

In Grand Theft Auto, at least you’re usually doing bad things to bad people. In every Call of Duty game out there you’re doing bad things to bad people for good reasons. And I’m not above acknowledging that it appeals to our natural animal instincts.

I play plenty of shooter games. And I’m not a parent. I’m not particularly religious. But I believe in morality. I still think this game is a little over the top. Not sure about *banning* it, but I’m a believer in enforcing ESRB ratings.

This is purely “Let’s see how much we can get away with.” They will claim it’s target-audience is adults, but of course kids will find a way to play it and some will learn from it.
I don’t want to take their right to make it away, and might even give it a try if you’re able to play as a Cop, Military-person, or regular open-carry person as long as I don’t have to pay for it.
