Yeah, the torture scene I had some problems with, although they did pick the right character to do it, and the post-quest bit (I shan't spoil anything) took some of the sting out of it. Again, I think Rockstar think they're satirising with these depictions of moral depredation, but they're quite often soaring past the mark. Which means often excellent storytelling and character work can be undermined, for many players of the game. It's a bummer, though, I agree, and it certainly warrants discussion.
Nellsson, I'm giving everyone a lesson in linkbait. :D
Also, Luke, thankyou. Insanely compelling piece, sterling work.
Great premise, but that guy playing the captain really, really ruined it for me.
Anon42, you took the words right out of my mouth. Beautifully said, thankyou.
Such great comments, guys. Thanks.
With all due respect, I mention that it's my five favourites and that I'd love to hear what your favourites are in what I thought was an amicable tone. Also, I was never employed at Triple J to do 'rants', and haven't done so for over six months. Thanks for your input! :)
I've never seen Dellamorte Dellamore! Sadly. Am going to remedy that later this week. As for Brain Dead... I love it, but I'd place it juuuuuust outside my top five.
I've never seen Steel! I tried to avoid anything with Shaq in it. Which, as it turns out, was a real mistake. The guy is... kind of an accidental genius. :D
Honestly, I'm less invested in Catwoman as a character, whereas I'm obsessed with Daredevil, so for me, Daredevil was more of a letdown. Plus, Kevin Smith. Ugh.
Also, Pittapotamus, I would have put Elektra in but, again, I never saw it! I am downloading it ENTIRELY LEGALLY right now, though. If it's as bad as you say, I'm happy to put it in!
