You can do realistic art, and graphics, without the gore.
Theres nothing wrong with haveing a funny "finishing" move, to show mastery for bragging rights or domination of a opponent in a fighting game.
Whats wrong is the mentality of the developers pushing all this unnessary gore into the game.
What annouys me even more is this american puritan view, game devs are takeing.
Women cant wear sexy outfits anymore.
It is sick..... go back to sexy ladies, and fun finishing moves instead.
I know an artist who's ok doing sexy ladies but he really doesn't like doing gore. Now I'm starting to get why he feels that way.
Some days I just blow up.
