Jesus christ with this title talk, it's like people who have no mental illnesses whatsoever get offended on behalf of actual people with mental illnesses like every redditor does, like first of all, you're not helping people with actual mental illnesses by just pointing out a title is "offensive". For second, who the fuck cares? The game is just a game, it's not meant to misrepresent people with schizophrenia, it's not meant to promote actual violence, hell we even had this talk 3 decades ago with DOOM. Thinking a game would impact someone so much he would go in a killing spree is pretty much Lieberman-tier neanderthal thinking.
I just wanted a funny title that was democratically chosen in a strawpoll. It's pretty "unfortunate" that it relies on a mental illness, yes, but it's as much about schizophrenia as Hitler was a goddamn painter. If you seriously connect the plot, title and general gameplay of the game with the mental illness itself, you got a frickin' problem.
Just chill. It's only a game.
