Doki Doki Literature Gets Called Out For Being a Bad Influence?!



good morning we're going to start this morning by talking about a free online game it's called doki-doki literature club and it starts like a dating game set in a high school and features a group of animated girls in a book club hey friends otaku dear so today I wanted to kick into something that I found out yesterday that maybe some of you guys have heard of as well so you guys know D DLC Doki Doki literature club and you guys know the BBC well they found out about Doki Doki literature Club and they had a few things to say about it things do turn sinister with characters self-harming and killing themselves an inquest will be held into the death of a 15 year old called Ben Warmsley from Bari whose father said the game dragged his son in Greater Manchester police have said we believe this game is a risk to children and young people okay we're in one of those things again guys it's the videogames fault not the parents so logic that they had to explain 4d DLC is something that a lot of us are fed up with hearing which is the fact that they're blaming a video game in this case doki-doki literature club for displaying suicidal and graphic content for the ages 13 and up do you know that it has a warning in the beginning and on the steam page the coroner has warned this is a psychological horror game with suicide as a main feature and notes too it does warn it's not suitable for children oh good well I'm glad that you've acknowledged it so what's the problem here however the graphics etc are clearly aimed at young people we've contacted the game's creators team salvato but so far we haven't heard back it doesn't actually sound like you have a legitimate response other than yeah it has warnings in the beginning telling people that this is gonna happen but the artwork is obviously directed at kids so from that logic I'm guessing you're saying that anime is for kids if so I would I would advise you not to say that because that's gonna open up a whole can of worms then I'm not gonna dive into but just to indulge yourself if that is the case here's some examples of that same art style done a very similar way if not worse now if I could be blunt it just seems like to me that from that logic you're saying that horror can't look cute or bubbly or remotely look like that it's aimed towards kids now I don't know about you but I didn't hear anything when Happy Tree Friends came out is it because it looks like a cartoon as you would probably call it so if that was the case what about beavis and butt-head Family Guy king of the hill anything on Adult Swim now obviously we're not having a conversation right now but I'm guessing one of the things that you would say is that it's available to 13 years and up and I get that that's a little controversial but at the same time at the very end of it that's all up to the parents now your response might be yeah but it's free to download so we're giving it easy access to these kids now this is where a sort of gray area starts coming in here folks if you want to shelter your kid from what's going on in the world that's fine I can't control that it's just I believe that we're in a different age where instead of shielding the kids from the reality of the world we teach them the reality and show them the best ways to handle those types of situations because regardless of whether or not you want it to happen it's going to happen and doki-doki literature it had a precaution in the beginning it did all the legalities right it's not real no one is actually pushing anyone to kill themselves in this game it just has elements of suicide because it's just a graphic horror game that includes that it's horror so I expect it to be horror now for any of you guys out there thinking that I'm attacking the BBC I'm not I'm just clearly stating that this is a problem that we have been seeing over and over and over again where it just looks like that parents and adults like this blame everyone else but themselves some of the people in this older generation that are either too ignorant or just not interested in playing the game just try to figure out the easiest answer that they can pick from obviously I don't know what kind of parent you are you could be the greatest parent in the world but all I'm saying is that just don't go for the first thing that you see think about when you were a kid didn't you ever get exposed to something that may have had something violent in it did not really affect every aspect of your life as you grew up did it change everything that you are as a person if the answer is yes then I'm very concerned about what this movie is and I need to see it if you're holding your kids hand and for some reason they walk off into a strip club knowing that it is a strip club and you know it's a strip club literally says on the front come inside we have new ladies and then your kid gets exposed to a what happens in a strip club now whose fault was that of course the strip club right for just being there you were a good parent it was the construction workers fault for building that strip club there doki-doki literature club already had all the legalities figured out they gave all the right precautions you just didn't care enough to read it let me scratch that you did read it but you're just completely dismissing it because it's still the content of the game that's too graphic again it's not the same thing as like a Logan Paul situation no one actually killed themselves in this game okay no one real killed themselves in this game it's a game that is obviously meant to be taken as a fictional story that or you know what just horror games are over everyone sorry there they're getting better we can't we can't have them anymore they're they're brainwashing our children go add me on hello kitty online that's what we're gonna have to play from now on no I'm serious gold on Hello Kitty online and go at me just all in all how about bully is like real bullies real people literally going out of their way to go harm other kids why not focus on that why not try and fix that instead of a passion project did everything it was supposed to do you said you message team salvato I don't think they owe you any explanation for what they did they had an idea they wanted to make a horror game and apparently it was just so well made that it's just not suitable for society so team salvato if you are watching this take it as a complement to your game for being that good you don't need to change a damn thing the worst thing about this BBC is that you haven't pissed off me I think you've pissed off Monica and she's out to get you and she will wreak a us and you're gonna stay with her forever and ever and ever and ever and and and good morning we're gonna start this morning by talking about

  1. idk why that happened at the end…weird?
    anyways…one thing I forgot to mention is that the entirety of the trailer was displayed on the bbc. So that's some good publicity for the game! 😀
    Update:
    The full coverage is BBC simply reporting the entire dilemma stemming from the father accusing DDLC as well as police thoughts. However, I still stand with this being pointless to showcase and accuse since at the end: if you believe a game/movie dictates someone’s entire emotional state for you to push yourself to extremes, perhaps you need to rethink yourself and dig a little further.

  2. I'm 10 and played the game while my brother (7) watched me and translated to him what they were saying 😂 (English to Arabic)
