"It's that time of the month again, Joel"
-Ellie, The Last of Us
Don't see a problem since it's completely optional. No different to "toggle blood: red or green" in some games. It's only when we're FORCED to play with "green blood" that I make a fuss.
I actually am really impressed with how many options ND seems to be giving players with TLOU, options-wise. I just noticed you can even turn Listen Mode off, and - though I haven't tried it - what seems to be most of the HUD and QTE prompts... very welcome indeed, and a rare thing in games these days.
That's lame. It smells of ND trying to sell this game to 12 year olds.
that makes no sense at all. They are just giving the options. Some people may not want to see the gore but play the game. Why do you try to give this game so much hate.
Also 12 year olds are opposite of no gore. if anything they'll want even more gore.
