David Cage 'shocked' by violent showings at last E3

During David Cage's presentation at D.I.C.E. Summit 2013 this morning, in a talk on his vision for the game industry, he addressed last year's E3's showing of violent, shocking content. The Quantic Dream boss made it clear that he was shocked that some games went over-the-top to show more blood, violence or sex, seemingly in an effort to show more shocking content than their competitors at the event last year. 

If there's a context, Cage says that any violence or sex is acceptable, but he feels that the game industry is taking it too far lately. He called it a mistake, and said that it does nothing for an industry trying to gain credibility. 

"Sometimes we go to far and behave like stupid teenagers ourselves," he said.

Cage wishes that the game industry should stop doing this as it's a matter of being more responsible to not only the industry, but also to society. He wants game makers to show that they are serious, and that they respect the medium and its customers. 

I wonder if he's referring to a particularly shocking showing of The Last of Us at Sony's press conference last year, which showed right after clips from his upcoming game, Beyond: Two Souls.
