Once again the government has decided that people aren't able to raise their kids properly on their own and is making parenting decisions for them.

This will not stop the games from being sold as the parents are the ones buying the games for the kids anyway.

the way i do it isto look at the game itself and completely blow off the rating. of course, there are few parents who follow this...if they did, there'd be no need for ratings. for example if a game has the name grand theft auto, i think its obvious its not on the level of sesame street. i think if parents actually talked to their kids about the kind of stuff in this games and weren't condiscending to them, they'd get a lot better results than trying to overprotect them. parents will complain about violence and sex and those sorts in games, but the truth is no one wants to play a game about getting an A in school because it's boring "real" life that they experience every day. there's no point in escaping into something if it's the same as real life. this is why games won't clean up and censor up and parents should face their kid and talk with them rather than blaming the gaming companies for designing games people want to play.

How about we start putting "Lazy Blame-Shifter" stickers on parents so I know to watch out for them instead.

Lame. :-t

I love you for pointing this out Irish :-D .
Honestly, whats the difference between AO and M? One year. Wow. Meanwhile, Junior is surfing the web while downloading 4 pornographic videos, but its someone elses fault because we weren't monitering what they were buying/playing etc. Not to mention in order to unlock "Hot Coffee", you have to go through a bunch of codes, have a special cheat device, and play many hours into the game for what, polygonal sex? Its just grandstanding. Pay attention to what your children are playing instead of drinking your latte, you lazy bums.


Like I said, it'll be even easier to do that now, since they're the ones who will have to buy it for their kids. I still don't see what the problem is.

They had to do it before unless they were 17... unless stores sold it to children.

Oh man, I hate people like you. The people who only think a game is good because of an M rating. You realize how many excellent games you miss out on?
(For example, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time is rated T, and is much better than the crummy, angst filled sequel Warrior Within, which is rated M.)

In my experience, retail stores aren't exactly the vanguard of responsibility in cases like these.

Hate is awfully strong word, no?

In general, if you want to play a good FPS, 'M' games are the way to go. Half-Life, one of the greatest games of all time and not even that gory is rated M.

Exactly. I play FPS almost exclusively, so it's important. And, I own Prince of Persia, for the record. I do buy some non-mature games.
I'm back. Sorta.

So, I go into Game Stop and now they say that "Adult" means 21. Therefore, you have to be of drinking age to buy this game which is completly Ludacris if you ask me.....
