If there are to be AO games make them decent Take2. Ive played lots of violent games..However Manhunt portrays them in a way thats over the edge IMO. As I say its my Opinion.
So what about the movies Saw 1, 2 & 3

They are violence for the sake of violence......but hey even self centred critics love a good film so i guess it's alright. But because they are too 'old' to play games. They want to make an example of it.

Violence for the sake of violence is good, it means it has no moral and no point. How can that teach you to act out the violence? Unless you a retarded.

My point is, the only people that would actually carry any of this through into real life......they needed help way before they played this video game.

Banning games is NOT going to stop people from going on killing sprees.....it will jsut make them find something else to blame for it.

Pathetic.

I think Take 2 was waiting for this to happen. But hey, like others have said. We can watch violence and porn ridden movies with critics clapping for it yet when it comes to a game that when you shoot someone GOD FORBID a little blood sprays out. It's sad. It really is.

It is not just in Ireland, but in the UK as a whole

My paper said that it is illegal to buy the game, but not illegal to have it in your possession.

And it also stated that it is not illegal to buy it from abroad. Hence buy it off the US Ebay site and you are totally legal. However if you are caught buying it from within the UK you can be prosecuted.

All i have to say is The Soprano's is one of the biggest hit shows of the past decade, and people are upset that they didn't see the family shot dead....yet we are crucifying a game where it shows exactly that, people dying(except it is to survive, and not just hate)....Something is fishy here....
post #17 of 48
Holy crap. I thought it was all ok, I mean, why ban a game? But once I saw the description on the last page...well...

Everything has a limit, that's all I can really say.

EDIT: Castrate people with pliers? Good lord. That is just plain unnaceptable. I prefer to hear Sheogorath's ramblings and torture chamber, but to actually BLOW the nuts off someone? What is the world coming to?

Obviously you haven't seen the ending to Hostel 2 yet.....

I to am against losing my junk!!
post #19 of 48
Nope, I was thinking of seeing it with my girlfriend. I know it's messed up. I hate the ending for Hostel 1...yuck...that girl, I still see her in my mind.

And another thing I wish to bring forth, anyone think our friendly gaming lawyer will say anything on this game?
