The extreme vulgarity?A fan's complaint

April 30, 2017 at 6:01 am

First of all let me say that I’ve been a very big supporter of Red barrels,I’ve often expressed it on the FB group and Outlast 1 is simply one of my most favorite horror games ever.
But I’ve been wondering,was all that extreme vulgarity necessary?Yes,I understand the game is a hardcore horror title for mature audiences,but sometimes it seemed as if you are trying way too hard to impress with all the nasty language.

However,that’s not my complaint actually.What bothered me and made me actually come here and sign up and post this thread was the repeated “f****** Christ” phrases in the game.So far,I’m at the point where I’ve restarted the generator and that phrase has been said out loud in the game 3 times.
Yes,I know,it’s a horror game,yes I know,themes of shocking cult murderers and twisted heretics are the focus of it.
But you have to see it from the point of the fans as well.I am sure most people in USA or Canada or Europe too won’t have any problem with it and will probably think I’m overreacting,but for some of us this is extremely blasphemous.
Just think about it: I’m playing the game,I’m immersed in its spooky world,everything is perfect and suddenly there comes a “oh my f****** Christ!” and the mood is gone,sour expression in my face and I’m pissed off.
Why?Was that REALLY necessary?You have to consider not everyone is atheist or agnostic.And frankly,I’m ok with all the rest of the vulgarity personally(though much of it did seem pretentious and ridiculous),but this is extremely blasphemous and annoying for a christian,even a big sinner like me.
I LOVE your games,I LOVE your passion for them,but darn it,you gotta be a bit more tactful there.I just wish you could patch this up somehow,if you’re willing.
