    I personally think it's a blast. It's pretty self explanatory, for those who haven't seen it yet, go the Newgrounds link and click on "play this game" It doesn't include any begging or screaming so it's not really that bad for those who are squeamish.

    And here is the TOTALLY unbiased fox news report that sprang from it.

    I was wondering what your guys' take on it was? I think it's just a game. I love sandbox games (I think we all do, Arcanum is pretty open ended and complex, not for those who enjoy structure) and I thought it was just fun way to pass time. It's not realistic at all, the guy you torture looks like a voodoo doll. I've seen movies that have worse things than this, yet fox news claims that it will turn our children into serial killers? I don't buy that "passive" stuff, initially people like her did blame the movies, and she basically just cleared every form of passive entertainment. First it was movies, now games? I wonder what the next scapegoat is...

    Okay. That was really fucked up. I bet some people here will like it though.

    As fucked up as it is, it is entertaining. Someone posted it on another forum that I go to a few weeks ago.

    If adult society is so concerned about the effect violence has on children, then they should stop producing violent media. I especially dislike how the interviewee brushed off televised violence because of its being "passive" and therefore less harmful. It seems to me that if one is going to argue that a interactive form of violent media will cause a person to commit violence, one should also agree that non-interactive form of violence will lead to more tolerance of violence.

    I love this game. Use the rope and twist him into the weirdest angles, then pull out a gun and shoot him to pieces!

    "And then red blood comes out"

    Fox are so intelligent.

    But I do think that the game is crap, and kinda disgusting.

    But I think the Fox News is even more crap and even more disgusting.
