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

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


Here. Something like Manhunt is a disgrace to the concept of gaming.

I'm anti-censorship, and wouldn't actually want to ban anything, but stuff like that cannot be good for the people who are entertained by it.

Reminds me of when my wife said that "surgeon" is the profession with the highest levels of sociopathic tendencies on psych evaluations.


Just like there's Slasher movies for ADULTS, there's Slasher games for ADULTS.

Nobody is forcing you to watch the movies, nobody is forcing you to play the games. Leave them out there on the shelf for those who do want to play them.

Get real, any kid with access to a PC is NOT going to go looking inside a game for nudity.


When did explicit sexual content suddenly become simple nudity?

And I bet you didn't even look at what games I'm talking about.

You aren't saying anything I don't already know, and I never said I'd want them pulled off of shelves. I just think that only a demented little **** would enjoy Manhunt.

The games in your list are mostly Japanese, listed as Adults Only, usually made for frustrated sheltered people, and you know damn well that AO games aren't sold in game stores in the USA. They're either not stocked, or removed from shelves as soon as the rating changes to AO. They're relegated to Porn Shops, if they're stocked there at all. When was the last time you saw a kid walk into a porn store looking for videogames when there's REAL PORN on the shelves?

So just because you go after fully-fledged Porn Games available only in other countries, or by import stores here in the USA, doesn't mean that American kids will do the same thing, especially when there's FAR easier and cheaper means of obtaining porn.

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.


Senate Hearings on Videogame Violence, 1993, Night Trap had "rape scenes" using live actors in FMV footage in the game.

The ban failed then and it will ALWAYS fail regardless of game content.


Not sure what your point is...

That's what ratings are for. Games don't make people violent and adults should be able to have the ability to purchase anything they wish to play and can afford. I'd honestly also allow nudity with a M rating as well.

You said that a rape scene might warrant a ban, History proves you wrong.

No game should ever be banned, and no game will ever be "too violent" to me.
