Should MMOs keep the gore on the down-low?

Post by TheHidden01 on Wed May 08, 2013 4:43 pm



If there's one staple that MMOs share with other video games, it's that fighting tends to be a mostly bloodless and gore-free affair. Sure, sometimes a daring game might throw in blood fireworks that erupt in the air to signify that you're doing some damage, but you and your enemy will appear in model health until one of you keels over from invisible wounds.

Of course, as time progresses and technology gives us terrific marvels, there's the potential for games to start showing more and more wounds on our characters. It kind of reminds me how there used to be action figures with the main selling point that you could transform them into disfigured, gory versions as they took "battle damage."

What do you think? Should MMOs continue to keep combat gore on the down-low or have you had enough of these abstract, bloodless brawls?

I want blood and fatalities in all my games. It should also tone down the little children playing and the big "grownups" that need to protect their conscience.

Blood and gore is fine, as long as the devs don't go too overboard on it. Fatalities should be reserved for rare finishers or something. Otherwise it just gets silly and the novelty of it will wear out faster then Drake running down the street trying to catch the ice cream truck.

Mass blood and violence never wears off for me.

Doing the same attack with similar death animations vs Multiple very bloody fatalities that also may get old.

I'd rather it be old with better animations.

You forget that current animations ARE old.
