What type of game would you ban as being "too violent" ?

Usually I'd say nothing, but playing FFXIII and dealing with that Hope character made me want to go back in time and beat Jake Lloyd to death with a shovel before the Star Wars prequels were made.

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.




^This. parents are real idiots these days and don't know
how to raise kids at all....

I'm not against kids playing violent games, that choice is up to
the parents, and if I had kids I probably wouldn't mind what they play
as long as it's not too messed up (but it varies for their age of course, but once they turn 13 I probably wouldn't give a damn about what games they are playing) but when it comes down to it,
it's not violent video games that make people violent,
it's a number of other things, bad parenting is one of them.

ummmm...... 'realistic' cutting up people and seeing EVERYTHING.


Then don't play those games.

Asking for anything to be banned just because you don't like it or can't personally handle it is the height of arrogance and hypocrisy.

Games with explicit rape scenes (interactive or not, games cannot pull it off). I'm not a fan of torture generally, but it could be quite serious and graphic and senseless enough to warrant a ban if it isn't justified by the context.

The writing was on the wall with Bioware the minute you could completely void all of your decisions with one choice in KOTOR.

Dragon Age 2. No one should even be able to play that game.

Nothing, as it stands right now, should even be close to being banned. Hell, if anything developers have to censor their games too much as is and should be allowed to do more if they so choose.

The only thing I'd ban is child pornography in games, but nothing solely violence-related.

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