I Understand that she is still mifted (to put it lightly) about losing her eye but still, sounds like kicking a poor crazy man when he's down. Would have like it if she showed some compassion. Oh well.

And attacking others doesn't make him any better. He was running away from his guilt like Isaac said.
Don't think that he could be saved. Better to kill him before he does any more damage. I mean, even Isaac killed him in self defence.
So for me, its a bit hard to feel any sympathy for him.
I <3 Dead Space.

Personally, I'm not sorry about that either.
Darkstar + Dead space 3 = *error* too epic to calculate

That said, I am not put off by Ellie's statement and here is why: it is how she said it. On the surface it was obvious the guy was mentally broken. He was clearly a risk to both Ellie and Isaac, was working against them in many ways, and was clearly a danger to himself. From purely a perspective of self preservation + a significant attack it makes sense that Ellie would rest easier with him dead. And she said it in a way that was solemn. If she would have been like "BOOYAH - where is the guy so I can go T-bag his body" - that would have been inappropriate. But, while she wasnt sorry, she also wasnt happy. She probably realized that, due to his broken mind, this was probably best for him. A person with a mind like that - I dont know if it is possible for them to recover. And if they could...should they? He offed his family!
So it wasnt that she was rejoicing, she probably saw it as a net good thing for everyone but her voice conveyed a lot of gravity as well.

You could just as easily say to me "you read WAY too much into that statement". But the truth is I dont think I am. She...pauses for a second to take in the information and process it and - given the terrible injury he inflicted on her, his obviously broken mind, etc - she probably determined it was net-net a good thing. But notice she never called him a name or said she hopes he's in hell or that it was painful. She doesnt even want to know how. It's done and it's probably something best left behind.
Not that you needed the extra argument but I think it is an interesting point in the game after you brought it up.
