RE: Hatred
The trailer for Hatred literally made me feel sick. Not only would I not purchase it, but I do not want view any of its content.

Although this just made lol:

I especially liked the way you could piss on burning bodies as they crawled along the ground.

Would you like to sign my petition?

RE: Hatred
All these games are good but i like to play GTA, only the fee roaming and doing anything feels like it is us the best part of the game. It is involving interesting due to its character and city.

RE: Hatred
It just got its official ESRB rating of AO, not surprising, which means it won't show up in most retail stores or digital marketplaces.

I'm not going to say whether I like the idea of this game or not, because I am an atheist, and therefore have no moral barometer.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

I had seen Postal 2 several times being showcased on Steam whenever one of those big sales came about, but that alone wasn't enough for me to ever click on it and check it out, since I didn't know what it was all about. Then the trailer of Hatred came about, and everyone was talking about it, and Postal 2 was occasionally mentioned in those conversations, so from then on I learned that you could go around killing people for the sake of it. Never once I expected it to be the way this video shows. It was hilarious! I'm definitely gonna give it a try.

RE: Hatred
I'm just going to copy-paste what I posted over on The Escapist forums.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/r...2#21756670

Am I the only one who recognizes that context plays a role here?

It's my understanding, and I could be wrong, that the ESRB doesn't actually play games to review them. The developer/publisher seeking a rating submits a video representing 'typical' game play across the spectrum that a player can be expected to experience. This is why GTA: San Andreas got it's original M rating because of course Rockstar wouldn't have submitted footage of the content unearthed with the Hot Coffee mod, because that content is simply not accessible without modding the game (and breaching the EULA if I'm not mistaken). I still think that the ESRB re-labeling GTA:SA as an AO game after the fact over a user created mod was bullshit, so take it for what you will.

So in context, a game where you play a street thug going on crazy adventures that involves gunfights with cops (who are armed antagonists trying to stop you) and the possibility of civilian casualties? Now compare that against a game whose sole purpose appears to be recreating a hate filled psychotic killing spree where the slaughtering of innocent civilians is the goal. In games like GTA it is a possibility, but I never remember a story mission that tasked me with slaughtering civilians on purpose for the sake of killing civilians. Saints Row is just balls to the walls crazy, and comes off as so over the top and cartoony; it's almost satire it's tongue is so firmly planed in it's cheek. Compare either of those two to HATRED? Especially with the wave of mass shootings that have struck the United States in recent years? That might be enough to push a borderline game over the edge into AO territory. Especially if the footage they were supplied is far more graphic and visceral than what we have access to. But that's another thing to remember, as of yet all we have is screenshots and trailers, none of us have seen the footage the ESRB was given to evaluate; none of us have played the finished game. There simply could be more than we are not aware of. Or the ESRB could arguably be overacting, both are possibilities.

Now I'm all for freedom of expression, to let the developer make the game they want. If you don't like it, vote with your wallet and don't buy it; simple as that. Will an AO rating stop me from purchasing it? No. Will I buy it just because it has an AO rating? Nope. It will depend on whether or not it's a good game. You can make a compelling game experience out of almost anything, but without playing the game itself I cannot make that call for myself. That being said, I'm not terribly impressed with what I've seen so far.

RE: Hatred
Violent, but I have no problems with them releasing the game as long as it's appropriately rated.
