It's not like in times of misfortune all people turn into vicious animals that howl for blood in the moon light. Some of the most humane actions can also be witnessed in these kind of environments - a person sharing his last piece of bread with a complete stranger etc. In other words, the whole spectrum of human nature should be presented in a realistic and mature way.homeslice82 wrote:"Over the top" would be bad. I want a game that's mature in the real sense: something intended for adults, not teenage boys. Fallout 1 or Planescape: Torment were great examples, and the latter wasn't even rated M. "Over the top" adult themes aren't mature--on the contrary, they're incredibly immature. Look at contemporary garbage like House of the Dead: Overkill, Bulletstorm, Mafia II and the like. They lack any kind of sophistication.
Give me a game that an adult can play without wincing.
You two have basically outlined what I mean when I say I want a "mature" game.
I just wanted to add that I agree with this. Not shying away from sex, violence, and drugs hardly means WOOOOO RAPE SIMULATOR 3000 WITH NON-STOP BEHEADED CHILDREN like some people in other threads honestly seem to be suggesting.
