That was then, this is now. I still see nothing wrong with a language filter. I'm not worried about it anymore though. I know though, it seems some people won't buy this game because of the language, though it seems more won't because of the gore. So always a good idea to have it, just to get those people to buy it who won't otherwise....
I vote yes to Language/Gore Filters.
I don't want to end up talking that way, so I avoid listening to it, in life, or in game.
My wife also hates it, so I'd have play with headphones... always... which given the higher quality of sound, just forces the words deeper into my skull.
I also don't want to support the trend towards ultraviolence and language by purchasing a copy.
The reviewers and the E3 audience were so excited, that now I'm afraid every developer will be trying to copy the trend.
Looks like we will be shashing the heads of cussing zombies for another generation of games.
If it helps, you could pretend you are on a violent holy crusade to destroy the last of the 'profanity speakers' by splattering their brains against the wall. If you manage to exterminate them all, the words will be forgotten forever (Until the sequel comes out of course).
I may have to go back to jumping on goombas. At least they die quietly and with no mess..
Honestly if my world went to hell like in the game I would be cursing left and right. Like if I was Joel everytime I got shot or saw an infected I'd be dropping F-bombs like no tomorrow. If you don't like the cursing then why are you playing a rated M game that says "Strong Language" in the back of it?
