Violence & Sex in Games
What do you think about the kinds of games they make these days where you see violence made out to be 'fun'? What is worst is that young people who do not yet 'know the difference' tend to live these games!
I totally disagree with the sex and major violence in video games. But, I can not be bias, I dont think that these type of games should stop being made because of the "affect"they may have on children. Parents need to take responsibility for their children, and not leave the media,television,video entertainment to raise their children.
Lets leave that up to the parent,
PARENTS SOULD MONITOR WHAT THEIR CHILD CAN AND CANNOT DO, AND SEE FOR THAT MATTER.
TELL THEM WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG.
~ I THINK TOSE TYPE OF VIDEO GAMES ARE OKAY FOR ADULTS, ALTHOUGH SOME ADULTS ARE MORE IMMATURE THAN A CHILD.

I grew up playing violent video games. I really like games that require a certain level of problem solving. Sometimes killing is part of that....
Overall I think that violence and aggression are too some point marketed in many products these days.
It's kind of sick....Then again life can get hectic and maby a little bit of fantasy R&R will keep a looney from killing the neghbors cat or worse.
Yes, I think is bad when people do not have a control over it. I like all kind of games, I found myself 'killing' lots of them in some of the games :( but as you well said, sometimes those kind of games are the ones that are more exciting because you need to figure out things (I love games that you have to make discoveries). But like anything else in life, must be a control.
Well what is the solution? The US congress wants to get involved with curbing it, but really it is like a drug, you have to provide alternative activities rather than policies and laws. It begins at home. If home is a great place to be then there will be lots to do rather than be in front of a computer screen all day long.
I just wrote a brief report on this subject, I think the mature rated games are such that children should not be exposed to them, and I personally believe that the rating system is not effective in controlling who plays these games, unless we have responsible parents who monitor what their children are playing. The entertainment industry makes big money out of these games but I believe the material is innappropriate and would welcome the congress becoming involved in curbing it.
I would even go as far as to say that this type of material should not even be produced in the first place.
I think the world would be a better place without all of this violence and sex being portrayed in various forms of entertainment.
