Well, you´re right but what i mean is that deaths and kills weren´t so explicit until Halo. For example, in Mario or Sonic, the characters obviously die after losing their lives but they just jump out of the screen or fade out. Imagine one of these games with the characters bleeding; like, if Mario got hit by a Hammer Bros, we´d get to see his dead corpse onscreen.Or if Sonic drowns underwater, instead of jumping, he stays looking at the player with his face turning white. Not to mention, Mario turns into a murderer with every game he has. He even kills poor innocent babies, like in Mario Galaxy 2.
