How about I don't care as long as it isn't overdone and/or feels out of place.
This. I'm play AC3 right now and I think the amount of swearing is perfect. Could someone consider it over the top? Maybe, but in a game like AC3, in the time period they are in, swearing drives home the point. I remember playing Metroid Prime 3 and someone said "damn." I was 15 when the game came out, but I was shocked because I was caught of guard. This is a first party Nintendo game, and they swear (kinda). I recently played Fire Emblem 6 (the Sealed Sword) and they swear often. They say "damn," "crap," and hell," frequently. I'm 20, it's not a big deal; however, when a character named Lance dies, he says, "****" (beings with an "S"). This game was never released in the US, so I played a fan translation. Whoever translated the game must have done a literal translation. In Japan, "hell," "crap," and "damn," are NOT considered swears. The culture barrier is very interesting, so as long as they don't go over the top, I believe swearing is fine.

I don't specifically like swearing(nor do I dislike it) but I absolutely don't want games censored to the point that they can't have it. It's just ****ing words. People act like it's more than that. It's not. It never will be. Get over it. The concept of "bad language" is one of the most preposterous notions in society.
The concept of swearing amazes me. How anyone could find a simple series of tones and sounds produced from the vocal box to be vulgar astounds me. The very idea that a sound can be offensive reeks of the most atrocious kind of mind control out there.
If you truly think swearing shouldn't be in media, you have absolutely no appreciation for the English language. Swearing is a part of our language and therefore has uses, and should be employed when those uses are presented. It's like owning a plunger, but not using it when your toilet backs up. Like having milk, but only eating dry cereal.
These are some mighty childish and feminine viewpoints. *nods*
You opened a debate, and I'll be damned if you're not going to finish it. ~smashbrother3
