As I played the demo, one scene really bothered me You see two kids in a room locked off from you, you're charecter even says "uh-oh, this won't be good." Then the little girl gets possessed and throws the boy onto a large spike, impaling him to death. Then I guess the girl turns into some sort of spirit enemy, shatters the glass and flys off. Ok honestly this is really tasteless to show children being murdered, especially in such a manner. Just remember this. A game as tasteless (fun, but tasteless) as POSTAL 2 Said that even they weren't depraved enough to bring children into the carnage and violence. Seriously, I hope that scene was simply a test to see how the public would react, and hopefully gets cut.

god damm dude. ITS JUST A GAME. I've seen far more uproar over this game rather than a film like 28 days later or dawn of the dead where there are kids getting killed and to be honest I am actually suprised. No, I am not a sadistic evil person who thinks kids should be killed but this is a GAME not real life. And in my opinion I admire take 2 for having the courage and sense to put kids in this game. 1. It adds to the realism factor ( you think evil aliens would spare the children ? well you're wrong ) 2.its a step forward in games and makes a horror game like this a true horror game. Besides, whats so bad about showing kids being killed ? in terms of visual things, a kid is simply a small and young human yet we see enough large tall adult humans being killed in games and films. I ask you, why no uproar about that ? all in all I will be extremely DISSAPOINTED if they cut any scenes with kids out in Prey, it will show me that Take 2 are just as weak as any other company like rockstar I mean how stupid... you go around vice city and don't see 1 kid... somethings up there.... unlesss its like half life 2 where there is a supression field around vice city LOL.

It doesn't get cut. There's even a part where you have to shoot the ghosts of the kids while listening to them singing "ring around the rosie" as they attack you

A child being killed in a game.... It is just a game.. and just because a child dies its a bad game? Seriously, if it where real, yes, that would be low... but it is just a game, and if you dont like it... just dont play it.. Later on you do see

the little girls in ghost form come out of the Bus and attack you.. and before that they crawl out of holes in the walls with music playing.

Maybe it's just me, who's been somewhat desensitized over the years (christ, I’m making myself sound old), but I didn't find it bad at all, the only thing that was going through my mind at the time was 'what the hell is going on?' and honestly, nothing more. There has been all sort of kid/baby related weirdness in games, from those baby-bug thingies from Doom3 to the girl in FEAR and if I remember correctly, Max Payne 1&2 had odd baby scenes too. It’s kinda becoming the norm.

Spoiler: Show
The bits when you fight those kids spirits, like when trapped in that room, was quite freaky especially with the music, and surprisingly their attacks seem to pack a bit of a punch too.

I was honestly impressed for the children in the game, they actually brought the grim reality of such an event, fiction or non fiction, in rl kids get killed just like adults. Like phobos said, evil aliens arent gonna spare kids

I agree with you guys.. it is just a game...it adds to the suspense to see a child being turtured or killed, a game with only adults dieing, sorta gets old after a while and you end up just walking past the scene or skipping it. And as for shooting them while they are running at you singing.. that scene was hardcore considering i had my lights off and my headphones on :D
