If Manhunt2 Is any worse then Im for one glad its banned.

GTA is a puppy game compared to Manhunt.

Keep the ban in affect . Well done BBFC
Please provide actual evidence that more than .01 percent of the people who bought/played the game actually tried to replicate it's gruesome horrors....Thank You, Have a Nice Day

So... Manhunt2 is to be on the Wii. The Wii? The "kids console" Wii? Not the supposed more mature PS3 or 360, but the Wii? .
I still won't get it though. Those type of games have a serious lack of constructive gameplay, just like shock-horror films lack any real cinematographic qualities.

In the UK it had happend a couple of times...A couple of times is ENOUGH if someone dies dude. Im not one for moaning about games at all however Manhunt is another kettle of fish all together IMO. Yes its silly for someone to go out and repeat what they see. However if such stupid-ass influence wasnt there it may not have happend.

I dont care if its a so called 0.1%....0.1 is enough.

No offence to those who like the game but its abit of a mindless meat headed game lol.

Well, the game contained some CCTV footage from the actual investigations to the murder, showing the 2 little evil freaks leading him away from the shopping centre and thats why it's been banned.
If that is the case, then I can understand why it's been banned. There's no need to put that in there at all.

Nintendo admitted they made a mistake in only allowing kid games on the Game Cube. They're trying to deviate from that practice more (as is evidence here).

Footage?

It had a single CCTV shot on a billboard of the toddler with his mum, which supposedly the developers didn't realize was even there

Unless you can prove that the game was the actual influence then yes ok let's do something, otherwise don't say anything on the matter, it just waste our time proving you wrong.

GAMES DO NOT KILL PEOPLE. PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE.

Nintendo had nothing to do with the making of this game....they didn't choose whether it would be on the wii or not....

BBC said it was due to CCTV footage in the game.

There was only 1 murder that I am aware of that was blamed on Manhunt, and everyone said it had nothing to do with Manhunt. The police blamed it on a drug fueled robbery. The murderer didn't have the game but the victim did have the game. The victim was only 14 and had an 18+ game.

The parents are to blame, but they don't want to take the blame so they will blame whatever they can to clear their own guilt.
