I don't intentionally try to kill anyone in games unless the game requires it. Accidentally on the other hand...

#3 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

What @JasonR86 said is pretty much how I feel. 
Accidentally I've been known to drag lawmen behind my car or horse and just fling them around all over the place. 
But! I did give them a 3 second chance to figure out how to get my grappling hook/lasso off their legs before heading into the sunset.

I don't go out of my way but i don't try to really avoid it ether. I feel it depends on the game, if they stand in my way then whatever happens happens. If cops don't really bother me then i don't go out looking for cops to kill.

#5 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2030 posts) -

I understand that being a cop in video games is suffering, so I let them be if unless they're actively on my case when I am forced to eradicate them.

Killing cops is basically the point of GTA? Is that really what you put in the title? Man, what a fucking stupid ass statement. Go home rookie. You are no better than the retards who report this shit on Fox News.

How is killing cops in GTA "basically the point"? Thats just dumb.

And it depends on how I feel.

#8 Posted by Pie (7119 posts) -

What other games have cops in them that much?

#9 Posted by stonepawfox (236 posts) -

i enjoy killing lawmen in RDR

#10 Posted by TobbRobb (4879 posts) -

Depends. I refrained from killing cops in Mafia 2, but in GTAs and Saints Row I was a fucking murderous maniac. It's about immersion I guess.

#11 Posted by believer258 (12308 posts) -

It depends on the game. In Saints Row 2 and the Third, for instance, I drove on the sidewalk more than I did the road just to see how many people I could knock into the air. Obviously, when cops caught me, I would shoot back at them, no problem.

In RDR, I don't aim to kill lawmen at all.

I guess a good general rule is that yes, I am going to at some point attack or be attacked by the local law enforcement. It's an open world game, that's just how stuff goes. The characters in those games can only feasibly be painted as violent anti-heroes at best because of it.

I'll throw my hat into the ring of "that's a dumb fucking thing that you said in the title."

#13 Posted by BaneFireLord (2969 posts) -

I try my damnedest not to kill cops or guards or whatever the equivalent is, even in GTA. Unless it's story related, I generally never find much fun in randomly killing people in open world games; I'm there for exploration, not homicidal rampages.

#14 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5146 posts) -

I do whatever is more convienient for me. So C.

#15 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

I'll be honest, I usually plow through with no discretion. I rarely get immersed enough where I see them as anything else but another obstacle to get by, just like any other enemy in a game.

#16 Edited by MrCaptain (372 posts) -

They are usually put in the game to enforce rules, and i usually play games to being able to break the rules without innocent getting hurt. So yes i kill cops when i have too. And i also agree that the title was pretty unnecesary. Its lile saying "do you enjoy watching movies where people get raped? Except pulp fiction where its basically the point" A ; rape enjoyer B : i dont enjoy rape

#18 Posted by commonoutlier (136 posts) -

Most times I try to choose actions in games that the designers typically designate as "good karma." Being a pacifist in games is also often a fun challenge, as well as leaving me feeling pretty good about myself. So if cops are depicted as "good guys," in a game, I avoid harming them.

Then there's Roy Earle...I tried sooo hard to kill him.

#19 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

I kill everyone I see.

Though really, how many games aside from the GTA franchise lets you kill absolutely anyone?

#20 Posted by The_Ruiner (1161 posts) -

no one is safe

#21 Posted by Clonedzero (4196 posts) -

i generally avoid killing innocents in any game, including GTA.

#22 Posted by Gantrathor (234 posts) -

For me, killing cops in video games is fun for about 5 minutes, but after that time I just want to move on through the story.

#23 Edited by Chaser324 (6792 posts) -
Hay guys, have you heard about this game called "The Grand Theft Auto"? I saw a story on the news about it. Apparently you score points for killing cops and having graphic sex with prostitutes.

That's basically what I imagine someone that thinks cop killing is the point of GTA would say if asked to elaborate.

#24 Posted by upwarDBound (654 posts) -

In a game where the police are antagonistic yes I'll kill them.

#25 Posted by sevenLiter (108 posts) -

I don't go out of my way to kill cops unless I get caught after a big chase. Then I'll go hunt a few down and make pork-bun out of them.

#26 Posted by dietmango (1667 posts) -

I'm an accidental cop killer. It's because they're always in the way. Same with civilians.

Straight from the underground.

#29 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3938 posts) -

I avoid it mostly. I ain't no Ice T.

#30 Edited by Hizang (8532 posts) -

Well in GTA games cops are usually a pain in the ass, where as in Saints Row I never really even noticed cops were chasing me.

#31 Posted by GunstarRed (5542 posts) -

Avoid it if possible. I remember being really bothered that they had let me not shoot any of the civillians in No russian, but I had to shoot the police to finish the level.

#32 Posted by RazielCuts (2997 posts) -

I'm struggling to think of any other (non open world) games that contain 'cops'..hmm.

#33 Posted by McGhee (6075 posts) -

Every cop I come across gets a dildo bat to the face.

#36 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Only if they get in my way!

#37 Posted by forkboy (1200 posts) -

Saints Row games? Yes. GTA games? Yes. LA Noire? I can't remember, but if you can I probably did. Definitely did in Red Dead. Sleepy Dawgs? Naturally.

Much like Ice Cube, I'll swarm on any mother fucker wearing blue.

Alternatively I'm a sociopath who hates authority figures but also a coward & so fulfil my murderous desires in video games.

Or it's just video games, I can tell the difference between real life & games, & just find it fun trying to lose 6 stars of notoriety & the quickest way to get 6 stars is to attack the police

#38 Posted by ShockD (2421 posts) -

Fuck tha police ;)

#39 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

I kill everyone in video games that allow me to. If there were children in GTA, rest assured - I would plow into a crowd of them with a fire engine.

#40 Posted by Village_Guy (2694 posts) -

I need a third option, because I don't avoid it but I don't seek them out either.

#41 Posted by Dan_CiTi (3582 posts) -

I kinda stopped doing that stuff after Vice City, it just got old after awhile in San Andreas because of the other crazy shit to do.

How many games are the police antagonistic?

#43 Posted by crusader8463 (14433 posts) -

I only kill when it's needed to progress the story or if they get in my way. Outside of in GTA 3 when I would make a meta game out of trying to get my police rating as high as it can go to see how long I can stay alive.

#44 Edited by Brodehouse (10247 posts) -

I attempt to avoid killing anything that isn't hostile or threatening. Sometimes I run people over in Sleeping Dogs, but that's not a conscious choice, that's just a limit of how much patience I have to try weaving out of the way.

I tell you what they need in those games is a Don't Be An Asshole button. Because sometimes I just want to step through a crowd in order to leave a building, but the game forces me to knock over old ladies because it has no middle ground between standing completely still and bodychecking fools.

#45 Posted by PenguinDust (12665 posts) -

Simply put, I kill anyone who gets in my way. If cops or the city guard or what-have-you try and arrest me for playing my character the way I feel he/she needs to be, then I'll hold no quarter against them. I don't seek out law enforcement to cause trouble, but if they come looking for me, I'll finish it...and them.

Video games like Skyrim that have kids but don't let you kill them? The worst

#47 Posted by Karkarov (3370 posts) -

Actually I try to avoid cops in GTA, they will actually give you trouble if you piss them off and don't lose them quickly enough. Saint's Row is the only game series where I don't really care if I actually take out a cop or not because that games whole point is being over the top and insane, not to mention it isn't that hard to evade them or last a long time against them.

#48 Posted by damswedon (3203 posts) -

Unless it is a pain in the ass I avoid killing anyone in a game if I don't need to.

#50 Edited by John1912 (1996 posts) -

Basically any sick and depraved thing a game will let me do, I prob do it. Dogs I might ignore, other then that I enjoy doing screwed up things for a laugh. Its not real, Id never do any of them in real life.
