Anyone here think it would be cooler if you could play as a civilian in this section?
I mean, I think it would be more fun. Games like Postal and GTA are extremely cathartic and absurd, not ultra realistic and disturbing which is what makes it so fun, but this obviously is much heavier (and I think it's a great idea to have a scene like this, it elevates gaming's status as an art form) and doesn't seem fun. Though, I think the idea of playing as a civilian could get their point across just fine, be even more memorable and intense if not frightening.
Also, God damnit, this is the mother of all spoilers and some asshole who leaked it ruined it for all of us. Just reading the headline was enough.
