Decaying Corpses and Skeletons

It’s odd that probably 90% of the games in the Xbox Games Showcase today featured crazy amounts of gratuitous, realistic, visceral violence, and blood. Almost as if games are in a competition to outdo each other and themselves in terms of grotesqueness with each passing year.

Yet, here we are with AoE2, where the community needs to mod just to get subtle amounts of post-battle realism. I think the crimson blood mod goes too far, in terms of what I’d want. All the dev would need to do is like 1% or less of what some of today’s featured games show. (More like .0001% compared to what the gross Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred and the Doom: The Dark Agest trailers showed. They aren’t for the faint of heart)
