    walking into poopy pants day care with an ak and letting rip doesnt.

    please all, dont get me wrong - im noy upset here. i love the game to bits but would find child zombies off putting. i dont see the point is all.
    i dont see the point of stripper zombies either and nudity certainly does not offend me.

    i do believe ones age and experiences lends more weight to ones opinion especially in a potentially charged conversation. so thanks to those who do indicate their real life game stage.
    im sure most of us dont want to hear a rant from a spotty 13yo on a topic such as this.
    Well, from what it seems, noone here is 13 years old And just as you and Ti2xGr said.. or me before... There are more POIs to support child zombies than there are to support strippers. Or nurses. Or bikers.

    Besides - I do have something small to shoot at. Some call her scout, ring girl, litte bitch or screamer. But its just a underaged female zombie.
    At least am not the only one thinking that screamer zombie is underaged <3

    I think she is too... well, actually was. She become the prime age for killing the moment she/it turned.

    Regarding immersion, Iím kinda thinking adding more of it into this game would be a bad idea. People will have an even harder discerning fantasy from reality. Wouldnít want to contribute to the whole fallacy that video games are the cause of violent behavior.

    Yeah, but well, you can't change that. Stupid people will stay stupid. I am more on the other side. Let them have it, bastards!

    I wouldn't think so... any additional art should conform to the game's art style, which means new zombies, child or otherwise, should have an inhuman, zombie-like appearance. I could see that argument when we get to bandits though, whom we assume will be human and look human. But 7DtD would hardly push the envelope on lifelike violence against humans, among mature games in general. It's worth remembering what that mature rating means. In the eyes of the US ratings board at least, impressionable kids aren't supposed to be playing this game.

    Yeah, I wasn't serious. I was just poking fun because already we have it where people can't tell the difference between a zombie in a video game and a real-life child apparently.

    Everytime there is a shooting at a school (for example), politics (atleast here on germany) blame video games to be resposible for the violent nature of young adults. It is however a proven fact, that there had to be psychological issues way before.

    I have to agree with Shineblossom here

    Edit: AtomicUs5000, just saw your last post about not being serious. I will just let this stand anyways - cheers!

    It's the same in the US. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RKZn2Sf7bo
    as if this hasn't already been disproved time and time again over the past few decades.
    Before that, it was music.



    There was a peak in the 90's, but has consistently dropped since. I would say that since the 90's all media has included more violence, and worse violence. No correlation whatsoever, because people know the difference.

    Same in Czech. There was a guy who killed his family.

    What media said:
    "We got to know that this person was a huge fan of GTA games, where you play criminal and kill innocent people, as well as he had been playing FarCry, prior to those murders, where you literally have to shoot your way trough field of enemies."

    What the media did NOT say:
    The guy was diagnosed with anger issues and violent tendencies
    He had violent past, being expelled from school for hurting a classmate for no reason
    His parrents were most likely (according to neighbours) abusing him

    So, it is the same everywhere. As i said. hearth hearth hearth hearth those people

    Also, let's not forget that playing game where you shoot at people makes you violent, but letting little kids watch movies like "Purge" or having news reporter talk about the tiniest details of murders have no effect!

    Teenager maybe. I wouldn't call this a child.

    Definitely going through her Goth phase.

    ...Not a teenager either, though. Age is a meaningless concept when you're undead.
