Some have more than others, I agree. I do not know if it is overused in Cognition so I can't comment.

I'm prone to saying my share of 4 letter words but not thrown loosely in a regular conversation. It annoys me when they overdo it in games and TV shows.

With what is going on in the game
Click to reveal..
brother killed and father kidnapped and all the stuff going on with poor Erica, I think the swearing fine...lol


I think in this case it ads a little realism to the game....Sherlock is a much classier character and nothing would phase him to that degree. He is calm and analytical.

I think it ads to the character development.
I am sure most will disagree But in this case I think it is warranted

Different eras. Holmes is set at a time when profanity wasn't really used (In the Lit. of the time) whereas Cognition is set in modern times where it would be highly unusual if it *wasnt* used. I find it less shocking as its overuse has diluted its effect to a large degree.

Oddly, swearing at work/home doesn't even register but if I hear someone f'in and blinding in the street that jars more for some reason.

ACD occasionally had Holmes mumble a curse just out of Watson's hearing range. I think the strongest word we ever hear him say is "[blip]" or "damned".

Edit: Holmes just got blipped by GB. lol

Some developers feel they have to have swearing to make the game "realistic" -- even if the game isn't realistic in other ways.

About the only thing you can do if you're put off by excessive swearing in a game is to ask about how much swearing there is in the game before buying -- and then not buy it if there's too much. If a developer has put too much swearing in one of their games, be sure to ask about their other games before purchase.

I once asked a shop assistant "Is there excessive swearing in this game?" and he replied "No, now push off you sad old f**t". Life is so unfair at times! duh

I don't condone swearing in games, but its not as bad....I will not buy a game if I see it has sexual scenes... shame

All in all ..Times are changing with Adventure games....I think the developers want other types of an audience... duh

Variety is the spice of life. They can't all be the same because we all have different tastes.

I feel game developers must be free to include whatever content they prefer yes

But we customers are also free to buy or not buy what we are offered whistle
