Cocker Posted October 9, 2007 Share Posted October 9, 2007 I switch on the news this morning to find the discussion of banning computer games again but yet again listen to them getting it all wrong again. The last time I remember this coming up was because of Bully (cains caimen edit) because it was called Bully they ran with the story of a disgraceful game where the aim is to go around bullying other kids. When in fact they made this up just from the title because one of the main points of the game was that bullying was wrong and you would be in trouble for doing it. This morning they are running clips of Manhunt 2 saying how bad it is - WHY WHEN IT HAS ALREADY BEEN BANNED FROM THE SHELVES. These games come with an Adult rating on them - just like a movie such as Saw/Texas Chainsaw Massacre and so on but you don't see these getting banned. To make matters worse they showed the console game clips and went back to the studio with the MP for his rant and he started going on about young kids giving out their personal details on the Internet - again, what did that have to do with the games they were showing? Certain games should carry a certificate like films do and should have warnings to parents on them but when you get politicians starting arguments about banning games and the way they are made needs to be changed but not coming up with the right facts about the games he is talking about it makes be so angry. What does everyone else think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
