Okay, as a 90's kid (I'm 26), I've slowly adjusted to the fact that the "good" games that come out now-a-days feature some degree of realistic violence, which may include torture and gore. Back in "the day," you could find quality RPGs and adventure games that focused on a plot point and used "content flags" like sex, violence, and foul language either in moderation or not at all while still maintaining an awesome story.
Now that times have changed, video graphics have improved, and people's appetite for realism and sensationalism have escalated, it's getting harder and harder to find a game in this genre with a good balance of graphics, plot development, and character development below an "M" rating, and I accept that. The very nature of this particular series is - itself - violent and bloody.
But seriously Telltale. The scene involving a child having to suture herself was a bit over the top. Not only does the player have to take control of the scene with every painful moment, but it's shown up close and with extreme detail.
Hey, there's a plus side to this - besides the subliminal advertising for Pizza Hut. If you ignore the scene in front of you for a moment and listen only to the audio, a different visual begins to form in your mind. I'm not sure WHAT the voice actor was doing during this scene (or even if the voice clips came from a Telltale studio, wink), but I'm going to recommend to my fellow gamers that they keep the speaker volume low. You wouldn't want an awkward conversation with anyone else in the house later!
