Some of those smart minds over at the University of Rochester got together and published a little study for us to talk about this week. Those psychologists, tinkerers of the brain I call them, have learned gamers don't always need gore. The original article can be found in the show notes for your enjoyment. Your input on the subject is always appreciated, feel free to answer some of the questions we have for your below if you need some inspiration.
Some discussion starters:
- How often do you notice gore when playing a game?
- When is violence and gore excessive?
- Would you miss the gore if taken out of traditionally violent games?
