a new manhunt would be awesome...but what is wrong with graphics these days?

What he's getting at is that graphics this gen are leaps and bounds ahead of what the PS2 was capable of, so all the brutal murder sequences would look so much more realistic and grotesque than those in the predecessors.


Essentially this and before you bring something like Mortal Kombat into it keep in mind presentation is taken into account.

Mortal Kombat is violent but its presented in such a way that it seems lighter than the way Manhunt did it.

Anyway, the answer to that question is NO, because those who oppose video game violence never seem to get more vocal as graphics advance. They were up in arms for Doom, GTA III, GTA IV, etc.


So developers should be afraid about pushing their games to a certain limit because they don't wanna cause an outrage, and have to be dragged through the mud by some half-wit politician that will try to institute anti-game legislation that will be deemed unconstitutional?

Help me understand what you meant.

I really think advanced graphics is what will hold back it's release, I mean look at this screenshot I took.

Nowhere near the power of today's graphics yet with all filtering and effects added to it, it still looks disturbing.

Didn't the last one end up getting an A for adult rating?

I liked the first one...

It wouldn't be any worse than sawing a locust in half with a lancer in Gears. I don't see the problem. I hope they remake Manhunt... or at least do a game just like it.

I would pay $100 for a current gen Manhunt. The first was an amazing and unforgettable game.

HUH? How did you get that from what I wrote, at all? TC asked if a new Manhunt would be seen in poor taste because modern graphics with Manhunt's brutality would be an almost unprecented level of video game violence. I said 'no', or at least not anymore so than the original Manhunt, because those who oppose violence in videogames have NOT really grown more vocal over the years, even as games have gotten more and more graphically able to depict reality. So basically what I was driving it is the opposite of what you somehow read; that there would be no major controversy if a Manhunt 3 were to be released.

I have been wanting a new Manhunt game for so long. Manhunt 2 was awesome and I would love to see some brutal executions.
