Should vegetarian gamers go on virtual killing sprees?
Wherein the author reflects on the squeamish disconfort some carnivorous players experience when playing Monster Hunter: World.

Shadows of the Colossus sounds like a really fun game. :/

Both games sound fairly depressing.

I keep waiting for games that aren't about shooting, killing, catching. Maybe games that are about exploring and finding things. I've not seen any that look very good.

The Samarost Series is fun. Machinarium is as well. The others are all interesting. Lot of humor. Fantastic sets. Nothing really challenging, though one does have to think a bit. No real violence. At least not the gory type and those that get it deserve it.
Are we there yet?

Any thread post titled "should vegetarians" should always end in "rethink their terrible life choices?"

And the answer should always be yes.

All I know about Monster Hunter is that there's little piggy called Poogie and that is one of my fat jerk of a cat's nicknames that I've used for a long time.

Machinarium was alot of fun and challenging for a flash game
