There’s no need for sick shit like this to be in a game. At least if it was about stopping these things from happening it’d be a little different, but wow. Rape, pedhophilia, injuring and intimidating children. What the fuck? I know Rockstar has always made games where you basically just kill people for fun and sometimes they’re innocent and unarmed people, but that was basically the extent of bad things you could do. I don’t see how anyone but a creepy sick piece of shit could put this stuff in a video game and give you the choice to either commit these acts or allow them to happen.

Because these are things that make sense in an open world game that gives you player choice?

You can kill pretty much anybody in this game. Why would they prohibit you just because it's a woman or beggar? They're not actively encouraging it and you get punished for doing it so I don't see how you can put that on the developers.

Also that pedo thing was clearly a moral choice. They're not encouraging the player to leave the kid and you can clearly tell the right thing to do is to free the kid.

Just because some bad choices exist in the game doesn't mean the developers condone them. It's all about player choice. Imagine a game where the only thing you're allowed to do is pet kittens and feed the homeless.

the question being asked is why would anyone want to play a game with these moral choices in the first place

what is gained from it

I expect this from a dog eater with avatar pictures of suggestive cartoon characters.

No, it doesn’t make sense. If this was a detective game and you’re trying to bring a pedophile to justice that’d make sense. The game being open world doesn’t mean getting raped and allowing others to be raped “makes sense” and is a good feature of the game. There’s no reason for this heinous shit to be in games.

Only mom approved content should be allowed in games now?

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
None of that shit is new to this game bar the scripted sequences. Im tasting the bait arent i?

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Somewhat complicated.

Remember Fallout 3 had kids but you could not kill them? Felt a little silly to have the game tell you "Sorry, you can't do that."
Takes you out of the experience.

So how do you have a consistent world while not compromising on amount of content?

as long as it's not forced in any way or even really encouraged I don't think it's the worst because... well I don't have to do it. At least it's not the mandatory torture mission in GTAV which is just awful.

The experience of being a child killer? Yeah no thanks.

valve didn't want child-killing in half-life 2, so the lack of children was woven into the plot, so it's not like there are no creative solutions to these problems

that said, i can't say i personally have an issue with it, at least no more than i have with any other rockstar game

i've already decided years and years ago that i'm not terribly interested in games like grand theft auto, or saint's row, where the whole appeal is to be a murderer or a raving lunatic, because it's always been pretty senseless to me and i never understood how people were able to derive any sort of entertainment out of it

still, it's easy enough for me to just not play those games, because they're not for me, but if anyone looks at a game like this and says "this should not exist," i can totally understand why they would feel that way and there's no real argument against it

i choose to have that attitude about sexual content more than i do with violent content

You can't kill children. There's just a glitch where you throw dynamite at those ones in the alleyway and they disappear, I think.

The suppression field is great world building but i dont think thats entirely the reason there arent any kids.

I remember playing San Andreas and wishing there were animals around. Cats or dogs around town for example. Not for the purpose of additional target practice, but to make the faux-LA feel more alive.

Honestly though, I would not care about a bunch of the details in RDR. I would play the main story, maybe poke around for some glitches and then move on.
I have nothing against having these sort of thing in games or other devs choosing to omit them. Did R* go too far with some of these? Probably. Would someone (some dev) have done this eventually? Sure. As tech gets better, they want to add more details and features.

Of course the edgy school shooter thinks there’s nothing wrong with the game.
