You expect me to play this game (Dead Island) after that? [Warning: video below NSFW]
I’m too busy crying.

PS: Don’t get me wrong: I know damn well that the zombie genre has always had bad things happening to kids in it, because horror is all about pushing people’s fear buttons, and for most people GET AWAY FROM MY CHILD is a big honking red button with blinking arrows pointing to it. I especially know this, now that I’m a parent. But, like this guy, I found watching that trailer… tough. Not because it’s manipulative – again, you want horror to be manipulative – but because it’s too artistically successful at being manipulative. Or something.
You’ll notice that I’m not linking to a site where you can buy the game, either.
