I came across an add for a game just now and something caught my eye: Casual Violence Free.

What does that even mean? That all violence is necessary? That it only occurs in a committed relationship? Or that any fighting occurs in formal attire? Do people even think when they come up with these ads?

And if "No casual violence" means no unnecessary violence, where does that put it? Violence is violence and if you're either disturbed by it or else don't want your kids exposed to it, does the reason really matter? I mean, I know that I can only tolerate evisceration's if the character has a good motivation. None of disembowelment just for the heck of it. And I know that every time I watch television with a child, I explain to her that it's only acceptable to bludgeon someone with a blunt object if they really mean it. No violence without commitment here.

CASUAL VIOLENCE FREE!!!

Count me out. Where's my zombie heads blowing up?! The explosions?:P

That is such a stupid descriptor. All violence does occur in committed relationships... >->
Ha HA! Domestic violence.

That last paragraph.... wow. I just laughed.:P

What children are you teaching again? XD

Scary ones?

Yeah, I wondered if that crossed a line, but when has that ever stopped me?

I just pictured you babysitting a tiny child and teaching them these things.>->

My goodness. I am SO offended. So highly offended. I mean, really? Really?

...

I'm just shitting you. That seriously made me laugh. When you cross the line, I laugh(unless it's aimed at meD:).

Oh and also, however off-topic, did you see the Sericea emblem thing?

I'm just curious, and childishly impatient.:D

And now I'm suddenly finding the urge to look at every video game I own to see if they say that as well. I really want to find out exactly what they define "casual violence" to be.

It was some sort of on-line pirate game advertised on Facebook. I'm assuming maybe it meant gratuitous violence, but it was a weird way of phrasing it.
