You wouldn't ban anything, that's what ratings are for.

Am curious to know from those of you who think that violent video-games should be banned as to what you consider "violent video-games".

And of course, if you think banning violent video-games is stupid, then there is the last option too.

Thanks in advance.

games don't make people violent in real life

^ I'm NOT saying they do.

And that is what the last option is for.

This is nothing more than a poll to get people's opinion.
Basically I want to know from those gamers that do find some games to be too violent as to what they define as being "too violent", and which type of game they would ban (if they could).

Its just a way for me to provide a little more clarity, because some people's idea of what is "too violent" might be different than someone else's.
And so I wanted to see what those differences are....if in fact there are any to begin with.

I am well aware that most people don't find video-games to be "too violent", but I know that some do....and so I wanted to know which ones they consider too violent.

And again, I Thank you all for participating.

I don't walk on others freedom of expression

That said. Ratings dont help either, parenting is what matters....sadly 90% of this generation has forgotten how they were raised and instead let little Johnny throw tantrums until he gets what he wants...instead of knocking him across the backside. Violent games and movies do not push these kids over the edge, their unchecked behavior does.

Can anything truly be too violent? I say no.

Nobody is forcing us to play their game, which really is what matters. There are no 'too' violent games, honestly. Only in your own mind can they be too violent.

I would ban stupidity long before I ever banned content in media.
