I liked this quote from a Gamespot game reviewer.
"Let me be frank: I like violent games. I prefer them. And I think games involving lots of violence might as well be gory, because violence is and should be depicted as an ugly thing, not a neat and clean thing. I think all of the violent T-rated games out there that let you shoot droves of people in the face without anyone shedding so much as a drop of blood are, in a way, more offensive than something like Manhunt, which unflinchingly depicts all kinds of grisly acts in full, gory detail."
Just something to think about.
