@aeroldoes: Whatever man, swearing is great.
@aeroldoes: Glad you're enjoying the game, man, and thanks for the positive feedback.
@cilvar: You can turn off the HUD entirely if you so choose.
@deviltaz35: If you're playing on PC or PS Pro, RE7 does support HDR.
@tevic: "Art and politics are on opposite ends. You cannot do art if you do politics." I would argue the exact opposite: all art is inherently political. Even striving to remain apolitical is, in itself, a political act.
Also, I'm really not clear on your definition of censorship. You ask if I think "video games should be censoring themselves," but I'm not sure what that means or how that would work. It's not censorship to point out, for example, that certain depictions of women (or men, for that matter) perpetuate stereotypes or demean people. Even calling for developers to think more deeply about the ways portray certain groups is not censorship.
I'm not saying "all games must adhere to a strict set of guidelines and only portray women as Tank Girl." I'm not sure anyone is saying that. I just think lazy writing that relies on stereotypes and dated, superficial characterizations is harmful (not to mention boring and unfun).
@defiler: Real suffering and fictional portrayals can both be problems at the same time, independently. One does not negate the other, even if one is clearly more severe. And in fact, the way groups are portrayed in fiction frequently, demonstrably informs real-life attitudes towards those groups, exacerbating problematic perceptions or even encouraging destructive behavior against those groups. If you actually care about the problems you mentioned and are not simply using them as a convenient political cudgel, then I urge you to think more deeply about the ways in which art can impact life.
Now if you don't mind, let's stick to Resident Evil 7 here, alright?
@sirvick: Without spoiling too much, I'll just say the order here is jumbled and many/most of these events should still catch you off guard. But fair enough! Appreciate you being civil. Hope you enjoy the game.
@sirvick: Reposting this from further down: Trust me, there's plenty more to the game that's not depicted in this video in any way. It's a fine line for sure, but come back and watch the video review again after you've beaten the game. I genuinely think your reaction will be, "Oh yeah, I guess they really didn't spoil much of anything."
@defiler: I don't always agree with Anita 100%, but fundamentally, I'm totally on board with the two core tenets that drove here videos on games: First, that games are worth taking seriously as an artistic medium and should therefore be subject to thoughtful critique, just as all art has been for thousands of year. And second, that games--as a culturally significant medium--should be mindful of the ways in which they portray women and that those portrayals--good or bad--are deserving of scrutiny. I want games to thrive, and in order to thrive, they must be inclusive to all. They cannot and should not be immune to adult discourse. You're welcome to disagree with Anita's specific opinions or rebut her arguments if you feel they could have been constructed better, but personally, I don't mind one bit if I'm "starting to sound like her."
@nayce54: The game is available on PS4, PSVR, Xbox One, and PC.
