The guys I know don't have the issues you are saying. Why you want to argue that is beyond me. Comments like this show you are the one having the problem. Are you projecting? One of the issues I have as a movie reviewer is that I'm growing tired of having to see "horror" movies. You see, a lot of "horror" directors these days have decided to ignore any semblance of subtlety in their works and go straight to violence and gore. ...In other words, the kinds of things I could see on a daily basis if I wanted to dip back into my own head for a while. Yes folks, if I wanted to, I could have just about everyone in this discussion projectile-vomiting merely by reciting some of what I've been through in life... like the time I had my stomach pumped... or the time I skinned myself alive. I guess a person could indeed say that when it comes to raw violence and gore in and of itself, I'm rather immune simply because I've dealt with so much of it. Thing is, that doesn't mean I'm some mindless drone who accepts it all passively. I still comprehend what's going on, and whether it's appropriate for the setting and rating. For example, "Deadpool" works because the comics are just that over-the-top and the film had a good writing team to keep it all in perspective, but "Don't Breathe" was a straight-up video nasty with no excuse for being what it was. As far as violent games go, I've been playing them since middle school. I actually played "Doom" back when it first came around, and coincidentally am playing it now as time permits; I got a bundle of vintage titles off of Steam. mirkwood 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
