Like the title says why is this game getting such a huge amount of negtive feedback.
For those who haven't seen it here is the trailer and its NSFW or around anyone under 18.
Now here is my thoughs on the video. Yes it is mindless killing but what makes this game stand out more then someone running around on GTA killing everyone to get a 6 star awanted level for fun or playing games like Hotline Miami/Postal or Manhunt.
All three of those games are highly praised among the gaming community even more so hotline miami but its still mindless over the top killings. Then you got movies like SAW where there is just a fuck ton of torture and killings. To me this game moves in a step where I would like to see some games and movies go.
You play as a bad guy and thats a aspect I personally like. I am so tired of games where you play as a good guy and the good guy wins. It repeats the same story model over and over so its nice to be a badguy.
lets compare it to tv now. Dexter/Breaking Bad are both highly respected tv series and Dexter is a book as well. In Dexter the main character is a muderer by he kills badguys and sometimes good guys if they get in his way. He is not a hero and is always the villain up to the end. Breaking Bad on the other hand is a Good Guy who turned bad due to his sickness and greed. He also killed and hurt many good people.
So why is it these series get praise and yet a game like this comes along and its getting huge amounts of negtive feedback. I personally don't see the difference in playing GTA and killing tons of people just to blow off steam or have fun. The only difference I see is the main guy of this game comes right out and says everything. He wants to see the world burn and will do it or die trying.
There is books/movies/other games that habe mindless kidding and worse in it. Yet this game seems to be getting a lot of "Hatred" for it...pun intented.
In my opinion anyone who likes Dexter/Breaking Back/Postal/Hotline Miami/Manhunt and yet hate this game because of the mindless killings are kinda hypocrite.
So what is your thoughs on it. Don't comment unless you watch the video please.
Edit: Boogie2988's opinion on the game and I 100% agree with it.
The only part I don't agree with is GTA. To me killing is killing it dosen't matter the context you try to put in it.
