I call it swearing myself


Same. Though I will admit, 'swearing' has a double meaning as does 'cursing'

you don't need to post the definition. I'm aware of it. I just find it funny

For some reason they think profanity is cool. I don't like it either, I don't want to play a game and have my son hear those words.


Yup this. Some developers think that nothing is more mature then characters spamming f bombs. So sad

not swearing = mature

LoL


If you saw a little kid in front of you cursing his mouth off would you consider that mature? If you saw an adult customoer mouthing off and cursing at an employee at a shop when it wasn't her fault would you consider that mature?

Whoever said cursing was mature? It's not. It's just a means to vent regardless of your age. Now having the self control not to curse; one would figure that takes more restraint and maturity to do then to not do...

As long as the cursing feels like it fits the the situation and isn't forced just for the sake of having someone swear, I couldn't care less.


This.

I never use profanity myself, but its use doesn't bother me.

If used right, it can portray stronger emotions rather well.

You're confusing bad language with people who obsessively use it. Kinda like attacking guns or games instead of the mentally unstable with the guns

Maybe it's because people swear in real life. They're just words.

They're video games, not documentaries. Real life has nothing to do with it.

I really don't care. My parents allowed me to say what I wanted when I was growing up and I'll be the same with my kids

I don't consider little kids mature at all. hell, I barely consider teenagers mature.

If you saw an adult customoer mouthing off and cursing at an employee at a shop when it wasn't her fault would you consider that mature?


No.

We're not talking about situations where swearing requires restraint though. Find me a game where you're having dinner for the first time with your girlfriends parents, at their country club and you're swearing, and i'll agree with whatever argument you have against it.

Arbitrary swearing, has nothing to do with maturity

They swear in PG-13 movies and even a lot of PG movies. Your comment was kind of dumb.
