Behold my wintery neat beauty.
I hate you all.
Quite frankly, I expect this to be as Jack said a game that is playing to the lowest common denominator of angry mall gothy 12 (and 14-18) year olds looking to kill things with reckless abandon in the worst kinda way.
It will do well, quite well, with that particular niche audience.
Context says everything, and the context of this game is unsettling, while the graphics look good, and the dark and dreary atmosphere are on point, the content and it's context turn me completely off to it.
This game is just...unsettling.
It's crossed the uncanny valley in terms of atmosphere, the protagonist (can I even call him that? is that even the right thing to say???), his thought process and ideology read like the many manifestos of psychotic sociopaths looking to go on a crusade against the world they hate.
Looking to take out all their unending rage that was born from some reason or another, or in the worst case no reason at all, it's disturbing, and while his spree is unrealistic in nature, it's still realistic enough to be a disturbing and gut wrenching sight.
Give me GTA and Postal anyday, because there's at least humor in it.
Humor would change everything about this game, it because so "dark and edgy" honestly makes this game just a boring, unsettling, hyperviolent mess.
The game basically screams of:
And for the aforementioned reasons; I will not be buying this game, no shade to anyone who does though, enjoy your murderfest!~
Look at my beautiful fluffy son
Well, to be fair the majority of mass shooters in the US are nearly all men, specifically white men, with only a few females. The majority in most cases are men, this isn't speculation, it's actually a fact. More often than not, the reason they commit these crimes are usually a part of revenge fantasies.
“Mass murderers are almost always male (I’d say at least 98 percent), most often have a motive (e.g., revenge), and most have a definitive tie to the victims — or the victims symbolize something to the killer,” said Marissa Harrison, assistant professor of psychology at Penn State Harrisburg, citing research she’s conducted or reviewed. Evolutionary psychology suggests that a threat to status could be a trigger for extremely violent behavior, Harrison said.
After examining 90 male mass murderers from 1996 to 2008, Harrison and a colleague found that a threat to status (being bullied or a job loss, for example) triggered the violence in 88 percent of the cases. “Anything that attacks a man’s status, then, is really a reproductive threat,” Harrison said
Now, I'm not sure what the statistics are outside the US are, though I have a feeling the numbers are lower probably due to most countries outside the US having stricter gun regulation laws.
Anita, is basically only scratching the surface, and as such isn't looking to all the aspects and is only sticking to what resonates with her ideals, which is "Everything is the Patriarchy's fault", which to a point is true,in some aspects the patriarchy does reinforce negative ideas of masculinity. She's not entirely wrong, but there is more to it than that.
Psychological factors play into it, economic factors play into it (just as much as the idea of revenge, money is usually the second reason Men crack, while both sexes struggles in economic strife, men are stated to be more likely to crack and go to extremes).
The patriarchy plays a part, but so do many other factors, so as usual Anita doesn't have all the facts straight. I wonder if Anita is aware that when Women commit mass murders, their go-to targets are usually their own children, and sometimes spouses.
But anyway, my post isn't really relevant to GG, but I just wanted to give me 2 cents on this little point.
After: Still perfect.
