A retweet/reply to Halceon’s
I support Gabe's returning of Hatred to greenlight. I also support going there and downvoting that game into oblivion.

Because while it’s fully within the rights of customers to ask vendors not to carry something (and vendors are fully within their rights to agree or refuse), I am, as a general rule, against taking stuff down just because some people don’t like it. It’s actually pretty hard for me to even imagine a game that I would even think about supporting the removal of from any store, apart from maybe something targeted at a specific person.
That being said, I’m not a fan. The game sounds almost exactly like Postal 2, and Postal 2 was a boring, tedious and empty shell of a game that had no engaging content beyond transient shock value & controversy. Shock & controversy wears off quickly, and there’s only so many times you can chop someone’s head off with a shovel, set it on fire, play football and then put it out by pissing on it before fatigue sets in. And Postal 2 was being camp about it, while Hatred seems to be playing it as straight as an AAA “Call of Battlefield” title.
So yeah. I think it’s a stupid concept that will lead to a boring-ass game and will probably be voting it down.
