EA’s ridiculous ad for Dead Space 2 featuring mothers being shown gruesome segments of the game has had a follow up. The ‘Your Mom Hates Dead Space 2‘ boasted how mums aren’t going to be too fond of the horror and gore, despite the game being developed for people who are old enough not to care. A couple of the mums where given controllers and filmed actually playing Dead Space 2‘s multiplayer in something called ‘Your Mom’s Really Bad at Dead Space 2 Multiplayer’, genius name I know but as Destructoid pointed out, they’re enjoying it. Gone is the feeling of discomfort at watching Isaac getting his butt handed to him and in its place is joy. It just goes to prove how violent video games need to be played to truly understand the content. The marketing here is bad, the main messages behind them are too but at least these mums are having fun and not ‘hating it’.
