Judge clears Bully game release - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Lol, Rockstar does it again! It is not a GTA "knock-off" because this is being released by Rockstar. Besides, what's wrong with GTA knock-offs? They're all great games...except for maybe Cice-Vity (Vice-City clone).

I see this Mr. Thomson as the person who sues at every chance he gets. I also see him as the person who stereotypes all people who play violent games as people in trenchcoats committing suicide after killing 30 people.

Violence makes games and movies more entertaining... So I'd be a lot more bored if violence was banned from the entertainment industry.

What happened to free will and deciding for oneself? If I don't want my kids playing violent games, then I just won't buy them the game and monitor which games they play. I mean, it's kind of hard for them to play GTA next to me and have me not notice (people getting shot, run over, etc.)

I hate being told what to do, watch, listen, etc.

Violence begets violence is a cop out IMHO.


If someone breaks into your house and you don't defend yourself, will they leave you alone? Will they not go attack someone else later also?

unlawful violence requires lawful violence to stop, or reduce the damage it can cause.

As to "violent" games and movies...the world is a violent place, art mimics the world, not the other way around. People who blame movies and games for their own inability to function in lawful, civilized society are either clinically insane or liars. I have seen Terminator hundreds of times, Predator, HEAT, Usual Suspects, ect, ect, ect......I have yet to snap and start killing people. I have played GTA, GTA2, GTA3, GTAVC, GTASA, HALO, HALO2, DOOM, DOOM3......again, I have yet to kill anyone in real life. I play GT2, GT3 and Forza motorsports....I have yet to exceed the speed limit by more than 10MPH.



That being said, I don't find these types of games enjoyable as they quickly become repetitive with the same missions being required with only slightly different circumstances. I finally stopped even trying the GTA games after 4 hours with San Andreas.......

Here's an idea, parents should actually spend time with their kids and not let them play games that they find unacceptable instead of leaving them home alone at a young age to do what they will.
