Although violence in the real world is a horrible thing...It was, in fact, an important part of the stylized feel of Borderlands 1. Toning down the violence in Borderlands 2 speaks to a world in which artistic integrity is compromised in order to appease to the groups who would speak out against such violence, and overall to avoid controversy. Developers need to be free to express their visions, this is a mature game and should be treated as such. The responsibility of shielding adolescent gamers from extreme violence is on their guardian, not the developer.
EDIT- Let me be clear, I LOVE THIS GAME and I LOVE GEARBOX. This is in no way an anti or negative petition.
I'll quote myself from another thread so people are clear of my intentions:
"Dont look at it like we are bringing out the soap boxes to make this a
earth shattering issue. Look at it like, this was a feature everyone
loved from the first game. They removed it for one reason or
another...and chances are they didnt even want to, but had to. We are
simply letting it be known that we miss the feature and hope they can
find a way to implement it in the future...thats all.
Great game, great devs, the petition just puts a solid number to an opinion. "
