People on here know its possible to spread content warnings about stuff with infantilizing or talking down to people right?
Like the DDLC post that's going around is honestly really insulting, I have delusions and hallucinations among a host of other issues and enjoy horror games, and played and enjoyed DDLC. Psychotic and otherwise mentally ill people aren't children and we can in fact enjoy horror.
If you want to actually help someone figure out if the game is safe for them you need to list off what actually happens. So here are trigger warnings for Doki Doki Literature Club
Suicide and mental illness shown/discussed in detail
Graphic violence and murder
The game reads your computer files in order to talk directly to the player using info from them
The idea that everything is a simulation/ you are trapped in a simulation
Child abuse and neglect
Betrayal by friends/someone close
Eyes and eye horror
Glitches and Unreality
Self harm is discussed and shown in detail
If any of these are a trigger for you I highly recommend being careful about if you chose to play and what kind of headspace you're in if you do.
I played it and I deal with simulation based delusions and while it was intense I knew not to play it if I wasn't in a good headspace and genuinely enjoyed it.
Edited to add on ones I forgot
