I like to play both violent and non violent games and will continue to do so until the day i stop gaming....People who can't stand violence that's cool but don't tell others what we should and shouldn't be enjoying within our games...

I too enjoy the violent and non violent games. I do feel that (like with movies and tv) that if something resorts to an over use of sex and violence then it tends to lack substance in the form of a good story.

Filler is what it is referred to and so many things (music, movies, games) use it way to often. Does that mean they are any less entertaining? That is up to the individual to decide. I can take it or leave it personally.

I don't think gaming needs to grow up any more than films, whilst there are plenty of heavily sexualised games like Lollipop Chainsaw there are several other 'mature' experiences to be found.

Do people need to grow up(and accept all type of legal products and not judging them as a whole)?

I believe it's just a problem of people not accepting videogames are not only child and teen entertainment anymore, so you have more freedom.

No, stuffy boring people need to just fuck off of our hobby and stop trying to dictate the course of the industry.

Games don't need to 'grow up' (perspective of maturity seems to be subjective anyway), the writing just needs to get better.

since I didn't see any news on the rumored "put a gun to your head and play me" game.. I think we just need an environment that will promote developers to make any type of game they want and we as the consumers will buy whatever it is we want.
