Should DBD have children killers?

    .....Do you not know about Halloween 2018? Also IT was better than its orginal counterpart, so was the Thing off the top of my head

    And you're middle aged, a perfect age actually because it was the last time where rock and roll, horror movies, and videos were still being called "of the devil" and censored seriously. What you people mean by "snow flakey" is that you can't just say slurs and it count as jokes. The proof that any form of censor would never come to pass again was in that moment that Trump attacked Video games like people have been doing for decades before and did not get a strong reaction. The last time there was really a push to censor anything it was under Bush and a lot of it had to do with 9/11. Even at that point people had already started not to care, by 2008 the culture war had been lost and the statue of happiness stood proudly over liberty city (look it up, something tells me elders will get a kick out of it). But once you go back into the 90s you'll see movies and video games censored frequently for the sake of not offending people.

    You keep saying "Oh well this generation is still full of snowflakes!" but by history and facts we see that by your definition it was YOUR generation that was the snowflakes, and every generation before was only more flakey with more censorship over people being offended. This all matters because in reality the only man that could lead an attack on video games has already failed (Attacking Dead By Daylight specifically btw) at gathering support and probably has a few other things on his plate right now. Even if he didn't the I seriously doubt "killer kids" would be the thing to set him off since im pretty sure Silent Hill, Bioshock, fable and Dontae's inferno didn't even catch attention for that AND you actually kill the kids in some of those, spoilers.

    Sorry but I am British I don't care for trump etc, I don't think children killers should be in the game.

    yes I own the Halloween 2018 it not a remake it sequel to the 1979 movie they made it like all other sequel never happened yes I get it he does kill one kid in the movie I thought you talking about rob zombie movies which I hated.

    sorry saying no remake were as good I was wrong the child play reboot was good and no matter what other say I like the latest carrie remake tho orginal still a classic.

    I didn't see the new it or the thing tho.

    I would disagree about no remake being as good as the original, I would say John Carpenter's The Thing is much better than the 1951 original.

  • OllieHellhunterOllieHellhunter Member Posts: 637

    I hadn't at the time but it seems like you were on about the 2011 semi sequel, semi remake. More than 1982 remake.

    Personally I am opposed to this, as I don't think it would be cool and fitting, to be honest, much like children Survivors, obviously. Besides, it would just be annoying to not be able to see the Killer because of their size.

    I never saw John Carpenter's The Thing but if John Carpenter did it must be good. mostly talking about the rob zombie halloween movie I hated them I mean I didn't like rob zombie original movies.

    Talking about Halloween and pumpkin patches and kids reminds me of that totally out of place 3rd Halloween movie (season of the witch) - it has no Myers and little connection to Halloween except the name lol if you haven't seen it you should just for the wtf and giggle factor lol

    I like rob zombies original films myself however I do agree he really didnt fit Halloween stylistically at all.

    I really don’t see a problem with children killers, like they are a thing in the horror genre and we have seen them all across different forms of media without any controversy, so don’t see why it should be a big deal here. I think the devs stated in a stream (don’t remember the exact quote) that there is the door open to children killers, but no kids survivors, (and all survivors are older than 21 years old), which I find more understandable.

    The real issue is animation for like taking survivors to the hook, getting hit by pallets and stuff, but that could be solved with some supernatural powers like telekinesis, them transforming or something like that.

    what I didn't like about his rob zombies original films are there like rip off of chainsaw massacre which really didn't care for the chainsaw massacre film to much but they better then rob zombies original films also LF is iconic no matter what.

  • PigMainBigBrainPigMainBigBrain Member Posts: 849

    I think the main issue is source material. Sure there are "childlike" iconic killers.....namely only really 1, that stick out enough to even be recognizable to a franchise. They could come up with their own midgets or dwarfs or whatever, but I don't think it would have the same punch as some of these licenses because to be quite frank.....the only reason people are scared of my buddy dolls is because they resemble Chucky which without said movie for context is not a horror character at all, and turns into some paragraph about a voodoo doll....

    Then you have children of the corn, who are Iconic movie wise and the only one that sticks out for most people, but.....theres dozens of those kids outside of the 1 who's the main antagonist and more in line with the devil.....but what the hell would his normal ass even do? He's literally just a normal ass kid. (since the movie is technically a psy thriller).

    Then you have the Exorcist and The Omen.......The Omen "MIGHT" work.....and thats extra emphasis on "MIGHT" work, but lore wise it would require the entity to be more powerful than the devil since both characters are directly tied to the king of demons.....and I'm not 100% sure the power levels match up tbh. And as far as the Exorcist goes.....what would be her signature attacks? Vomit?... we already have plague, on top of this the possessed person in the exorcist movies would be too powerful for a trial.

    So yeah I dunno Trick R Treat isn't even a kid or human, Pet Cemetery kid runs around with a scalpel.....wow.....spooky....Firestarter has really cool powers, but her resolution in the movies is to be a good guy, Wicked Little Things might work but what makes those zombie kids powerful is the fact that theres more than 1 of them. They'd have to really reach to pull some of these characters up to the level to compete in DBD.

    To be fair, besides Chucky, I was thinking more on a OC child killer, because with that, they have the freedom to give them any power. I remember reading a fan concept of a child killer in reddit that was interesting and I think Identity V has a child killer hunter as well.
