This is in the wrong forum, you used the word debate!
(EDIT: Word debate? Man I was tired when I wrote that, you should use the debate forum!)

On Topic: Lolatdesensitizingsexuality, christ the people they're whining about have probably watched porn for a good couple o' years.

interesting; i'm reading a book by a hasidic orthodox rabbi by the name of Shmuel(Shmuley) Boteach; the same guy that was riduculed by penn and teller on "Bullshit" on the circumcision episode, who now has his own show called "shalom in the home"; the book is called "Hating Women" and the book seems to tie stuff like the OP clip into its discussion

I don't like it when people say things like "Research proves that kids can't tell the difference between video games and the real world"

I was a kid.
I played video games.
I knew the difference.

...research is now bull shit.

You have to understand where they are coming from though, like tasteless games like Manhunt... I mean come on. If I played that funked up rubbish 24/7 did no socializing or anything accept play that I'm sure I'd turn desensitised and screwed up.

Anyway, Oh no filth! I'd agree if it was some hardcore bros at it but..the sexual thing is "tasteful passionate, sexy, loving" what ever.

Why don't they talk about more important issues in the world?

At least at the end of the report the man said " at the end of the day it's up to parents to control what their kids are seeing."

The blonde is saying to herself "i'm so buying this game for my sexbox"

It's a parental consent and responsibility when they buy the game to check the content of a video game before buying it for their kid. Most stores I know won't sell M rated games to kids who can't provide ID to prove their age.

Then again, it's the media. Better yet, it's Fox News.

Manhunt was a great game!!!!!!!!!!!! Manhunt2 is badass as well...............

There is something very special about these games that I cannot purvey over the internet properly. Now on the Fox news dig.......they mess up occasionly but overall they are the best news channel I have found thus far. Also I feel that games such as Jenna Jameson's 3D computer game and such should come out for these consoles. I can buy sleazy games for my PC but not my 360..........thats BS and a direct attack on my freedom of speech and the right to bear arms. There should be age limits but if you are like any of the other 13 year olds like I was to be pleased that I could get into a Rated R movie without having to provide ID. Bring on the Sex and Violence to video games and send them to me for beta testing at the_yellow_brotherhood@hotmail.com

How many adult males need to be marketed to with digital sex images? Seems like that'd be a pretty small market to go after... now, adolescent males... there's a different story.

Sex in video games that aren't sex games is always very awkward.

Your signature is now longer than the average post. How you can find this acceptable is beyond me.

At least it's not an anime forum. Replace every quote with a ripped-off signature containing a video game character, a tacky quote (preferably from a movie or poem), lots of shitty Photoshop brushes and/or filters, and your name in pixel font off to the side.

God help us.

What ever happened to "Just say no?"

When I was a kid it was preached for all kinds things. Most drugs, but essentialy anything that felt like it was wrong. Parents back then knew that they werent' going to be around 24/7 so they needed to bulk up their child's brain and will enough to be able to do the right thing on his or her own.

Now it's "The commercial advertises to my kids and I work so what am I supposed to do?" You teach your kid that's not meant for him and he should "just say no" when some jerk tries to metaphorically shove it down his metaphorical throat.

...metaphorically.

Haha...

HAHAHAHA.

I remember this one time when I was playing Ultima Online I was following my guild around in a dungeon; Deceit I think. Anyway, I got separated from them and was scared.

I died from a PK and I was upset.

But fucking christ if I didn't know it was just a fucking video game.

I may have been upset that I lost 20+ hours worth of equipment.

I may have been pissed for a while.

BUT SURELY I KNEW IT WAS JUST A FUCKING VIDEO GAME.

Kids know the difference between a video game and real life. I should fucking know. I've been playing them since I had an entellivision when I was 2. Snafu was the shit. I then continued to play them. From Dick Tracy and Who Framed Roger Rabbit to Commander Keen to Gunstar Heroes and Quackshot to mother fucking TFC and EQ.

Not one, in all 20 fucking years of me playing video games, have I ever been fooled. It's such a load of shit. Such a false claim.

By the way, this is one subject that really pisses me off.

Debate is not a dirty word!

Anyway, I couldn't get the video to load and didn't want to wait. From reading the posts, the media overreacts to something stupid. The media does a very good job of it, thats why I don't watch the news anymore.

I'll describe what happened.

The bitch on the left stated that the video game had mandatory porn in it.

The guy on the right said that it didn't and said that you can skip it entirely.

The bitch made a counter-claim that kids can't tell the difference between video games and real life.

The guy on the right chuckled.
