I'm confused, are you pro pandering to the easily offended politically correct harpies that have entertainment in a choke hold right now? And your solution is to pander to them more by taking this out? Or do you just find this one thing too gross? But disembowelment is A okay?

Who would have thought 27 years later that graphic violence would NOT be the most controversial thing about MK

Didnt people have a similar qualm with the puke in Noob Saibot's xray from MK9? It's amazing what sets people off.

This is in character as opposed to Noob Saibot kicking you so hard in the stomach you barf on his leg.

Context is different, sure. But bodily fluids are bodily fluids. Maybe Bo Rai Cho would've been a better example.

I don't really see how that was out of character? It's just the one time a horrible blow resulted in another bodily fluid besides blood coming out of someone.

Seeing a close up X-ray of someones testicles exploding, limbs being ripped off and eaten, and people bathing in blood is all fine.... but show some pee and a bit of thigh and people want it removed from the game?

I get that people have different levels of tolerance for different things, it just baffles me how in the western world that anything to do with sex or genitals is disgusting and evil, while violence, torture, and murder is not only acceptable, but very much encouraged.

Problem is; if you censor one thing.... why not others? Where is the line drawn and who gets to draw it?

Violence is OBVIOUSLY harmful. You KNOW shit hurts or has an even worse cost.

Sexual content depends on the context of the situation. Exploitation/objectification/porn/etc. is one-sided gratification. As long as you're getting off, you don't care about the other person as a person. They get treated like a tool. The negative cost is much less obvious, especially if you don't care.

Folks, Mortal Kombat is rated "M" for Mature for a reason. Why complain about a intro animation? If Fatalities don't gross you out, why should Kano's intro then? Kano is a dirty thug and this intro animation only a nod to that fact. So everyone just needs to calm down and get over it. If it offends you, change the intro so you don't see it or you shouldn't be playing Mortal Kombat at all.

After reading this thread I am hoping for an alternate intro where he squats down and drops a deuce

Preferably he does it on a character like Rain or Fujin, just to provoke more rage on the forums.

It's kind of hilarious that people complain about a "political correctness" climate when this sort of thing comes up, but they're literally the only people who see it from any sort of political correctness perspective. The people who are grossed out by Kano taking a leak aren't repulsed by it on any sort of moral crusader grounds, and it says a lot about someone when they bring out the tired old "SJWs/Political correctness gone mad!" spiel without prompting.

In any case: yeah, as people said, Kano is exactly the sort of person who's liable to whip it out and piss on the nearest wall. The fact that he isn't doing it on someone's corpse is a surprising display of restraint on his part. He could be dragging around Hsu Hao's soggy remains and pissing on them before every match as a statement and it would be in line with Kano's character.

well I would love it if Netherrealm actually listen to that idea and give that to Kano. For Kano is that big of a Scumbag.

Exploitation/objectification/porn/etc. is one-sided gratification.

1. Porn isn't necessarily one sided gratification

Tetra_Vega
As long as you're getting off, you don't care about the other person as a person.

2. That's not necessarily true

Tetra_Vega
The negative cost is much less obvious, especially if you don't care.

3. So therefore it shouldn't be allowed? Or therefore it should be censored more heavily? Not sure what you are getting at.

4. Regardless, the negative cost is also less. The level of violence portrayed in MK is universally bad. There is no instance in which that level of violence is okay unless the circumstances are extremely dire such as someone threatening your life. You seem to be arguing against what another user said,

"it just baffles me how in the western world that anything to do with sex or genitals is disgusting and evil, while violence, torture, and murder is not only acceptable, but very much encouraged."

and you tackled this by saying that violence is obviously harmful where as sexual content isn't. Well that would be because sexual content isn't inherently harmful. It's not all bad. There's nothing wrong with a lot of sexual content. There's nothing inherently wrong, disgusting, evil about sexual content, but there is with violence.

The main point of the argument I am making here is that it's a video game. If you're argument is about sexual content in video games being bad because it creates sexist attitude in the people that play them, I disagree and won't really be able to prove it. However, that exact thing has been shown in many academic studies for violent video games not causing people to be violent.

5. What does this have to do with Kano taking a leak in his intro?

Just be happy we don't have a legion of snowflakes demanding a boycott of the game because of Kano's intro.

We unfortunately live in that kind of world. Let's pray it ends at this thread.
