Yandere Simulator features different ways to get rid of Yandere’s rivals peacefully.
There is no need for the player to become a harasser to win the game. But, twisting suicide by harassment into a gameplay mechanic is abusive of the actual occurrence of social ostracization and suicidal idea in a teenager’s life.
Based on the report presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the third leading cause of death among young teenagers is suicide. And around 157,000 teenagers receive medication for self-inflicted injuries at Emergency all over the United States. Also, the center mentioned that yandere simulator bullying and suicide-associated behaviors are strongly interrelated, and that that middle school students are most likely to commit suicide if they are the subject of bullying.
However, by using suicide as a gameplay mechanic, the simulator removes the damaging effect of harassment on most of the teenager’s life. Rather than dealing on the long-term fights with depression, traumatic stress and anxiety that could lead from bullying. Yandere Simulator simply shows suicide as another as another means to win the game. This makes suicidal ideation easier, and cleanses the internal suffering that results from harassment in the middle school.
