You just had a glimpse. Now imagine not just a glimpse, but a fantasy land full of bodies, disembowels, crucifixions, and pools of blood on top of the
creepiest music you've ever heard of.
Sounds like an awesome game to me lol
Quite honestly I have been around games for my entire life, ever since I got my first Commodore 64. I'm pretty sure I turned out alright...
I do agree, however, that there should be much stricter rules on buying 18 certificate games. However that is for the government to enforce and not
the games industry. And regardless of what you say, if a parent doesn't want their child to play such games then they have the ability to stop them.
Just because parents, as you say, are children now aswell (which is complete BS imo), it doesn't mean they are incapable of caring for their child.
I'm sure when I'm a parent I won't be letting my children play higher certificare games until I know they are mature enough to play them... just like
I would do for films. Maybe this will be a year or two below the certificate rating; but again my parents let me watch films that were 18s when I was
15-16 and as I said before I turned out alright.
I would be interested to see what your opinions are on pornography and violent films. Children can just as easily get their hands on this material,
particularly the former. Do you want them striken from existance too? I realise you don't immerse yourself into those medias (although in porn you
probably do) but they still portray the same morals as you see in games.
When was the last time you found your palms and feet sweating because of a picture, or a movie?
I could say something rude about the above quote but I won't lol.
Can anyone really argue that video games/virtual-reality is in anyway GOOD for us, or not terrible for our society?
There are hundreds of games out there that are educational and help young children learn in school and in the home. Also if you take a game series
, it is great for learning little things about history and how
governments are run.
And lets face it, loads of media gets or has got persecuted in the past. Rap, Metal, Film, Video Games. I'm sure there will be a new invention melting
our childrens minds in the near future that people will complain about.
Oh and for a laugh ever since games have become popular and mainstream, crime in the USA has decreased.
But as I said, if you hate video games then don't let your children play them. Just like if you hate junk food you don't let your kid eat it. People
need to stop blaming the games industry and start blaming the government and game stores for quite a weak attitude towards selling games to kids.
Just to add, I think you'll find that most kids who start going mental over games and start killing people have some mental problems in the first
place. Sadly one idiot teenager who kills 10 people or whatever over shadows the millions of normal children who play games every day and realise the
