Not only that, there's also the ratings:
Very bloody horror movie: 16+
Video game with light swearing: 16+
Video game with lots of blood, horror, swearing and nudity: 18+/ban

The rating systems are far too ridiculous. And the public view of the games in general, in terms of GTA, many tiny kids play it and swear a lot. But they don't actually have any real skill (shows in their achievements/trophies). No doubt it influences them, but the only real reason I have found that the game has increased crime is a 17 year old (4 years ago) in Thailand who carjacked a cab at gunpoint. When caught and interviewed, he said he learned the move from GTA IV and he thought it was okay. This obviously shows his lack of common sense. But I haven't seen instances of kids my age robbing a clothing store or running around in the street with an RPG in hand.

Yeah but the kids can't buy any GTA, their parents have to buy the games for them. If they do something like rob a car at gunpoint and though it was okay because you could do it in a game then they clearly aren't well mentally and their parents should stop buying games like that for their kids, not try and stop publishers from publishing games like that. I have been playing the GTA series for 12 years and I have never robbed a car or killed people before.

Same here, in fact a study pointed out that violent video games only really lead to violent behaviour (shooting people, rubbing a taxi driver at gunpoint, etc) if you are genetically inclined to do do so in the first place (ie: if you are more likely to commit criminal facts in the first place), so for those people, playing GTA might be the proverbial drop which made the bucket overflow.

Yeah, it really is the parent's/older siblings fault. They shouldn't be able to play them I have met a six year old on xbox live before. He couldn't pronounce the letter "R." He asked me "Do you want to have a helicopter wace?" I nearly rofl'ed. But it is a major problem, you can't just see the stuff you see in a M Rated game at age six. No matter if you are playing Multiplayer or not. The kid still cursed his butt off, like most COD players really. But its major wrong. Having started playing the game at 13, looking back I probably shouldn't have. But I did and it didn't affect me much. But I see it more today than anything else. And while GTA is a very debated series (if some of you remember the "Hot Coffee" incident, you really know what I'm on about) it is a big money maker for Rockstar. So no matter what press the game gets, it will always remain in controversy and you will always have the lunatics wanting it to shut down, if anything, GTA games (if they do get more graphic and violet) will receive an AO rating, which is "Adults Only." In fact, no current gen systems have an AO release on them. The most well known being GTA SA (after Hot Coffee, but later the patch brought it down to M again). Most/all of the current AO ratings are games for the PC. I know thatbecause I looked up the wikipedia article, not because I like that kind of things. tongue.gif

Yes I know about the "Hot Coffee" incident lol I actually downloaded and installed it, I don't think it was worth it though.

Oh yes, the hot Coffee thing was blown way out of proportion though, and kudos to Rockstar for making certain parts of GTA:IV even more explicit than its perdecessors.
