Are you going to shield your children from everything?
Thinking that entertainment promotes violence is complete nonsense. It's selfish to think that an advertisement should be rated in order to shelter little children. How ignorant and self-absorbed can people get?
Should we barter the power of the First Amendment for our comfort? Absolutely not.
As an adult, you need to learn tolerate the things you dislike. Otherwise, everything would be rated or prohibited because of some dumbass whom it offended.
EXACTLY my view. Just because some mom doesn't like shooting games and she thinks it's going to make her kid violent she wants to make EVERYONE think that they are going to make kids violent? Or violent movies.?
I tell you this: I'm 16 and have played Goldeneye since it's been out, Doom, Wolfenstein, Mortal Kombat, Turok, Halo, all that junk and I've never so much as punched someone (in a malicious way of course, I do in the joking way). Same thing with movies.
Parents have to judge whether their kid can differentiate real from fake. I don't know how a kid could think a game was real and I think that's a load. Just an excuse.
As to the DOA4 comment, are you talking about that TOTAL SKANK at the end (Alpha 152?) who can simply dominate you every time if she wants?
