The lights are on
Ok, so a long while back, I pre-ordered the PS4. Now, there's just one problem, almost all the upcoming titles are either ultra-violent (AC: IV) or too appealing to a younger generation (Lego Marvel, and Knack, which I would be okay playing, but not quite that appealing). And when I present to my parents a well made medium between the two, like inFAMOUS: Second Son, and then the Plugged-in (a discerning Christian game review site) review of the earlier games, my mom rejects it when they mention that you have the opportunity to kill innocents, and that blood spatters and appears around the screen when taking damage, a decision which I can understand and respect, but still think may be a bit of an overreaction.
So what I need help with is either coming up with another medium (between E10+ and M), or possibly a way to put the inFAMOUS franchise in a better light. I am well aware that there a plenty of fun and not-so-violent indies coming to PS4, but I'm looking for a good launch, or close-to-launch title.
Update: she now rejects at the mention of possibly lethal projectile force. Tell me, are projectiles always lethal in infamous games? She is by no means a fan of killing, in case you haven't noticed.
You could highlight the choice factor of the infamous games. I do not know how old you are but even if you are young tell your mom that making simple choices in something like a video game can help you understand the impact of your choices in real life. Also I would still consider Knack it is a mix between classic and new games styles while yes it may seem to appeal to kids but its supposed to be more of a generalized game that appeals to all ages, if you have ever played games like Spyro or Ratchet and Clank you should enjoy Knack.
I am in the teenage age range, so inFAMOUS is pretty much developed and rated for people like me. Thanks for the heads up on knack as well. Hopefully Gaikai streaming will open up more possibilities when it rolls out!
You're welcome! I'm always happy to help a fellow gamer.
First of all you have to understand that you don't have to point at your fathers as picky or something. For what are you mentioning you are in not age of playing that kind of violent games,in fact most of violent content aren't all that great. If you or your mother consider AC IV as ultra-violent then there's some reason why they are worried about because there are others that are even worst.
You have to undestand that your parents are concerned and they have reasons in this case. Let's hope that there will be more everybody games in the psn in the future meanwhile be patient. Just you don't want to be a spoiled person in the future whose parents don't care for that kind of people at all.
Ok, well, it's one thing if you're not allowed to play games for older people, it's another if you're not allowed to play games that were programmed, rated, and in all, made for people like you. I respect my parents and their opinions, as well as their concern. If anything, I have the right to complain about the lack of T and below games and the abundance of M games.
Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 are coming out, though not anytime soon. I used to have the same problem with my mom in my early teen years. My best advice is to show her that your a kind and compassionate person who would never hurt anyone in reality. Videogame violence is drastically difference from real world violence...so try to get your mom to see that....good luck I know its not easy haha
