Im currently involved in the production and direction of several titles due for release possibly fall 06...

In light of the amount of crap developers are getting, even though the particular game im working on is to some of a highly violent nature, im taking no extra steps to accomodate these people, and I never will. I have a plan and a direction I want it to go in, that will not change. (Although I will say, it is of a war nature, it doesn't come close to the violence GTA:SA or Postal 2)

They're really not smart:

1. Games for years have shown the shooting of people and this has bothered few, at least not to the current degree. As soon as there is a "sex scene" (I double quote that due to the fact these arnt real people there 3D models simply given animations, depicting sex) these people run for the hills!! (I hope they don't abolish sex altogether or there won't be many people around in the future
)

2. The kind of people who are arguing against these video games have kids under the age the game is intended for. Then they shout how some stores will sell them to underage kids. Who the hell cares? Its your responsibillity as a parent to govern the entertainment your children are involved in CHECK THE AGE GUIDE LINES, PLEASE PARENTS!!! Games arn't intended just for kids.

3. Are they bored, or just not that bright?


There have been cases where video games have been blamed by actual killers, I suggest that TV could have the same infliction on these people as video games, possibly even books? Nothing like a good novel to really spark the imagination and if there dumb enough to copy a video game. I question there state of mental health.

The fact that Sims 2 has now been put on trial. I find rediculess, I own a copy and have played the game many times. It's unfortunate that these people are bothered by barbie and ken like features. Is it really worth risking peoples jobs and putting all that energy into something so absurd?

Don't you guys get it? By banning these games then parents can say "Look! We're doing something to protect our children!" instead of actually sitting down and taking responsibility for raising their children. "Parenting" has become "Sit down in front of the computer or television and don't bother me, I'm busy." But they have to make it LOOK like they're doing something right to keep their children "safe."

I grew up on games like Heretic, and Doom, and all the other shooters out there. I've been looking at Playboy since we found a big stack of them when I was little, but my parents actually sat me down and taught me to be responsible for my actions, and to admit when I do something wrong, and I like to think that I'm a very well rounded responsible adult.

With the way the world is now, it's "too difficult" for parents to actually sit down and TALK to their children about things like violence and sex, or how to be responsible.
