Ultraviolence Has To Stop
Warren Spector Says : We Have To Stop Loving Ultra Violence In Games
Scenes of serious violence were a staple of the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo last week. And while Sony said these moments, Epic Mickey producer Warren Spector has a different take. Speaking to Games Industry International, Spector bluntly said, "The ultraviolence has to stop."
Expanding on his thoughts, Spector said he believes such violence in games could have negative implications.
"We have to stop loving it," he said. "I just don't believe in the effects argument at all, but I do believe that we are fetishizing violence, and now in some cases actually combining it with an adolescent approach to sexuality. I just think it's in bad taste. Ultimately, I think it will cause us trouble."
Spector went on to explain that his decision to leave Eidos (where he was instrumental in the production of the original Deus Ex) in 2004 was spurred by the violence he witnessed from the publisher's lineup, specifically games like Hitman, 25 to Life, and Crash 'n Burn.
