Lol ok so how would the complicated explanation go? Does such exist?
Great quote but I think your own post is highlighting the problem.
We're talking about subverting the players expectation aka surprises. Your answer is rape/gore. To surprise the player rape/gore would need to be unexpected.
Look at this.
I agree. Rape/gore should only be in dark work for the people interested in seeing rape/gore. And if/when this is the case it wouldnt be a surprise after the first time at which a separation occurs between those who do/dont want to see such.
Simply to put it simply its bad taste to suprise people with things they likely didnt want to see to try to shock them.
I didnt mean to strike a cord, just my perception, I personally watch alot of anime and based on your avatar I'm guessing you do as well and there were MANY times I watched an anime believing it was going to be lighthearted and fun and then it took a horrific turn for the worst and it both subverted my expectations as a viewer as well as shocked me but not in a bad way.
For an example theres a new and ongoing anime even right now called Goblin Slayer that'l started extremely positive and down right generic and within 15 minutes everything absolutely flipped
It doesnt have to be exclusively dark either, the series "vikings" does a great job incorporating all types of violence with great Detail but not overselling the subject.
We can agree to disagree but I believe gore/sexual assualts have their place and, to get back to the root of it all can be tastefully done, that was the point I was trying to make.
