Tolerance toward violence was definitely lower in the 2000s. For instance, we get to see the Fukuro Lady really really briefly (and partly) in SH3 because back then it was still "too much"... When it's nothing compared to what we face today in medias. People were more sensitive.

So the idea, or even the suggestion, that a baby is killed in a video game was probably too much. They played safe, even if it meant affecting the artistic integrity.

Makes me wonder how Outlast would look like had it been released 20 years ago.
