…Responds to Outrage Over Violence.

"It's with a touch of dark humor that I always laugh at ESRB game warnings like "May Contain Content Inappropriate for Children", because those warnings are almost always followed by some obviously inappropriate content; there's no "May" about it. And then there's a game like Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II. The first award-winning game in the series was dark, both visually and narratively, but this new trailer for the sequel aims to showcase just how brutal the game's world has become since then. Fair warning, it's not for the faint of heart.

And it's due to the graphic violence, carried out against women and children no less, that has some folks upset with Sony's presentation of said game. The Telegraph chatted with Jim Ryan, President of Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe, President of Global Sales and Marketing for Sony Interactive Entertainment, after the company's slate of content for upcoming games was unveiled during Paris Games Week. We'll share his comments following the trailer…."

I'm sorry, there is nothing redeeming about torture and mutilation. It's not gaming, it's playing to people's basest urges. I don't believe in censorship, but I do believe in not supporting something as vile as what was in that clip.

I agree with lloydthegamer.

Meh, it's no worse than what is portrayed in other '18' certificate movies etc……

Aye. This game isn't for me, just as all the torture porn movies weren't for me.

The Last of Us is a rough setting not meant for the Donald P. Bellisario crowd. If you can't handle seeing the consequences of violence, or your simulated actions, maybe another more PG murder simulator is more for you.

Pretty much. I burned out on the relentless grimness of nu-Battlestar Galactica by about season 3 and Game of Thrones before the TV show even started.

Well just got done watching that trailer and quite frankly I would hardly call that brutal.

Though still not a game that I would be interested in.
