    Sometimes when I watch these news people talk about subjects like this it makes me wonder if they actually live in this world.

    That one lady says something along the lines of "What happened to Atari, pinball, etc..." and the funny thing about that is she is too young. The Atari was long gone by the time she learned what a video game is.

    I believe it's more along the lines of "some people do not think like I do and that is why society is going downhill" or "It's for the children". All too common among politicians.

    At least they acknowledged it was rated M.

    The news and other media's goals seem to be "Scare the shit out of you so you'll watch." What better way to do that than with video games (something relatively new to entertainment) with SEX (think of the children!) and how its OUT OF CONTROL!! (Holy shit, we dont know anything about video games! That means theyre made out of Satan's blood!)

    Honestly, they know this attracts attention.

    The reviews of Ms. Lawrence's book at Amazon (which is linked from her own site) are absolutely hilarious. These will probably be deleted soon but I got my laughs in already. :D

    They may have deleted that one but there are dozens of new ones today that are even better such as :

    That's just the latest two pages. There are several more, most of which give the book only one star and are very well written sarcasm.

    The game is rated M. Stores really do check for ID now. If kids are getting their hands on this game, then it is the result of poor parenting.

    Besides, are parents really so naive to think that even a thirteen or fourteen year old hasn't seen full frontal nudity? :rolleyes: Porn isn't hard to get. Childreen younger than this don't even make the teen rating. Not saying teen games are necessarily unfit, but I believe my point is getting across.

    What I really enjoy is how even though gamers can be total jerks to each other during a match of Call of Duty 4 for example, everyone will band togethor to own anyone who threatens our sub-culture.

    Hahaha that b*tch is getting roasted.

    Though she is kind of good looking I'd slip her the salami.... nah.. I guess I wouldn't. I'd have to want to be in the same room with her first.
