El33t’s Question of the Day: Has a scene in a game ever made you stop playing?Written by: / / No Comments
News recently surfaced regarding the reaction of an Irrational Games employee to a certain section of Bioshock Infinite, the very game he was helping to make.
This employee had such a visceral, negative reaction to the scene (which is still a mystery) that he tried to resign from Irrational Games, but after speaking with studio head Ken Levine, the employee ended up staying and Levine was given a better understanding of how much of an impact the game could possibly have on a player.
This Question of the Day asks:
Has a scene in a game ever made you stop playing?
Levine discusses the incident in a video interview and describes the employee’s instantaneous, unwavering gut response to this particular scene, but have you ever had such a reaction to content in a game?
When is the last time a game challenged you, your thoughts and beliefs? Are there such games that are able to ask you tough questions? Or are you visceral reactions limited to rage quitting?
