It's weird. I've been forced to read books about rape and books with the N word and F word in it in school.

That's one of the reasons why Trent Reznor refuses to sell his albums in Wal-Mart. He refuses to produce an edited version. His reasoning is that you can go by violent movies and games, why should an album with explicit language be censored?

I've seen some funny conspiracy theories though...some people think game publishers themselves are the ones who court the controversy in order to sell more copies.


I suppose he has every right to do that. It will hurt his sales in the end, but honestly I don't think that many people buy hard copy CDs from wal-mart anymore. I don't think many people anywhere buy hard copy CDs come to think of it. It is all being replaced by MP3s and if you are smart you won't buy music off the internet either.

Sorry, but the DT series is his poorest work IMO and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I happen to disagree with you. I would put it just below the works of Tolkien. Granted, I am only half way through the Drawing of the Three, and there was a point where I almost ripped the book in half due to

(spoilers)

Jake dieing in the first book but this series has been my favorite read in a long time.

Some game publishers have done that. EA claimed it was being picketed over Dante's Inferno about the whole religious stuff. They later admitted the protesters were hired to gain hype.

Capcom on racism:
We don't care what race our fans are, because we don't care about our fans.

Well that makes sense, I kind of see EA as being the Luthorcorp of the gaming industry,
