I think the discussion on realistic video game violence in this episode was interesting because it is indicative of how the community as a whole views violence in the medium. As soon as Andrea expressed her opinion on violence in games being too realistic, everyone was quick to put her in the "well that's your opinion" box.
So does anyone think that video games can ever go too far or be too realistic as far as violence is concerned? Is there a too much? Most people agree that violence against women, sexual violence, violence targeting minorities, and violence against children are too far. I agree but I'm not talking about those categories. People also like to set the narrative/artistic context requirement and fine, lets say that whatever violent act in a game that we are discussing has that. Even under those circumstances, is there a limit to how violent a game should be? Is there a line for you personally that you prefer not to cross even in the most artistic game? If so, what is it?
