Hot Coffee Too Hot?
 
Yes, everyone's favorite "kill everyone in sight" game is back. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is out for PC's and you can beat women with baseball bats or shoot cops with Mac-10's to your hearts content.

But the violent content didn't raise any eyebrows in Congress.

Recently, an unofficial program posted on the internet that "unlocked" sexual content in the game. Now, according to a couple of senators, this has gone TOO FAR!

Yes, there seem to be different standards as regards violence and sexual content in video games.

I can remember hacking peoples' heads off in computer games in the 80's but video games now are much more realistic I am given to understand.

I think only the technologically stupid run Congress. The only way to access this "sex scene" is through hacking the PC game.

If your "child" is old enough to hack computers, then he's probably old enough to know what a simulated sex scene looks like and has already probably seen several in movies.

It's pretty ridiculous, if you ask me.

If the person has to know how to hack to get to this sexy stuff, these people are spinning their wheels.

agree with you on most part but the kids dont have to be hackers to find the extension

Fuck 'em.

It's a video game.

Parents who allow children to play these games despite the warnings all over the box that it isn't for anyone under 18 are idiotic and deserve the blame.

Let's go after the negligent parents who allow their 5 year-olds to play these games, not legitimate, mature 20-something video game users.

:yes: :applaud:. Thank you. Things like this shouldn't be up to the government to decide, but the child's parents. Do your job and your kid should be fine.

I do find it rather amusing that government officials get up in arms about this, though...so we can send kids to war, but we must shield them from those violent video games!

I have full faith in my ability as a parent to vet my daughter's recreation, and any yet unborn. I dont require government assistance in banning these games from my house.

My sentiments exactly, well said.

Parents need to be parents.

Political move on Hillary's part. She's appealing to the right, trying to become more centrist.

I just read an article where Take Two (the publisher) is being forced to label the game 'adults only' because of this addition.

People make mods like this all the time for all the PC games.

dazzlingamy 07-21-2005 03:59 AM

I just think that if a child sees violence in a game and goes out and does the same thing to someone in real life, he's gonna do it anyway. I think its pathetic that america veiws sex as more damaging then violence, but i think people seem to overreact to both of them. The game is a cartoon, its simulated its PRETEND! LIKE A MOVIE!
*gasp*

The whole people against video games are pathetic. And btw, i wouldnt let my daughter or son undert he age of 15 (which it says on the box already) play the game! So why are they eve ncomplaining?

PS. My boyf has the game and unlocked the "Sexual content" as a laugh and all it is its a naked chick bopping up and down on the guy. no genitals, the guy isnt even undressed and shes moaning. If some 14 yr old kid saw that, itsa not like its some hard core porn clip or something.

People just love to make a fuss
*rolls eyes*

Actually Dave, you completely missed the whole point of the controversy.

The game is rated MA - children under 18 are allowed to buy the game. However, Rockstar Games included content that would have earned an AO (adults only) rating - thus only people 18 and over could buy the game.

So now, to whom is the "fuck 'em" directed?
