Looking at this trailer, how can anyone want to play this?
Quantic Dream makes games focused on the narrative, so naturally it makes sense that the game should have good writing to be good. Why, then, do people accept the atrocious writing in this game? The trailer alone shows it.
A game focusing on the subject matter of domestic abuse/oppression? Okay, good start - it's an ongoing social issue that many people still don't understand. But after that it just seems to break down instantly.
The father is simple minded and cliche through and through, blaming the mother and lacking any sort of emotional control. Cheap, easy, and cliche way to create a male antagonist. Not only that, but that design, as well as the overall conflict, is inaccurate to actual domestic abuse. For players, this makes the story far less believable, especially those who know a single thing about domestic abuse. For players who have gone through domestic abuse and may be looking at this as an outlet to help with closure or have a sense of taking back control, this inaccuracy is just insensitive. It misrepresents the issue and makes discussion about an already confused topic more difficult.
What is with the design of the robot? Subservient role, must be an attractive woman. Another cliche design. Male robots in media are cool as shit, while female robots are always the same sexy body type and way too often in some serving role. Would be cool to see this emotional, nurturing role be a male to contrast the emotionally unstable dad and larger perception of men/masculinity in general, while breaking the constant representation of women in such roles. Two birds with one stone.
Finally, why does the trailer show so much? Who decided to include things like "hes going to break you like last time" and the father getting shot. What is the point of spoiling such information, even if it's predictable?
Why are there such low standards for writing and the design behind conveying a story/universe/etc, especially in a narrative game? We would have far better games if simple things like this weren't accepted, let alone applauded for excellence.
