Fans Don't Approve PG Friendly Crowd Chants In WWE '13

Although the latest trailer for WWE '13 showcased the many improvements the game has in its audio, some fans still don't approve what the crowd is chanting during the game. (PS3, Wii, WWE 13, Xbox 360)

The PG era has gone on long enough. It's time for the WWE to grow some damn balls again.

WWE is not about wrestling anymore. These day every single matches is always like the previous week matches. WWE to me is becoming more like a reality tv show.

I understand if they've found that their main audience is kids. There's VIRTUAL FAKE violence, and then there's foul language that kids don't need to be hearing. Context IS important and children are impressionable.

Adults don't buy toys. Kids do. TONS of money to be made. They are just appealing to the most profitable audience.

Kind of like how nickelodeon is full of teen girl shows because girls are obsessive over things at that age. Much easier to make a crap show for them (that they'll suck up no matter what) than a quality cartoon.

vince has said it time and time again that PG is here to stay. I do believe we will see attitude era again but only when its needed. And right now its not the time as we have seen with rock/cena build up and cm.punk promos that you can do some great things within PG

and ask yourself this TNA is not PG yet they can't even compete with smackdown why?
DeadlyFire  +   712d ago
They could compete, but TNA doesn't want to compete with Smackdown they want to compete with RAW. All they need to do is go head to head with them for 2 months.
DeadlyFire  +   712d ago
WWE wants to set the bar back down so low so that any little thing they do will be exciting. They are failing. Many times Raw has hit under 3.0 rating in the past year and now a new hour and most of that is just filler. They will lose that extra hour before 2013.

TNA needs to grow some balls and compete. They hit hard on January 4th show they put head to head with WWE, but since then they have almost gone out of their way to copy WWE.

They both need attitude. TNA is trying different things. WWE doesn't try anything. They just pull another old name out of the hat and say we need him now to spike the ratings.

yeh they tried but tna couldn't compete with wwe on monady night raw or wars lol. I am fine with wwe with pg but as long as they produce edgy shows which on most nights they don't. But tna isn't the answer they have most of ex wwe or wcw stars and hogan and eric bichoff will kill tna just like they killed wcw. They are the real cancer for this industry and they are the reason tna will never be put on the same map as wwe

i give tna 2 more years before vince actually buys them out. If wwe looked at tna as a threat would they have one of their stars on wrestlemania(ric flair) and than wuld they agree to send one of their own to their PPV(christan)

i been a wrestling fan since late 80s and we while the business has changed wwe is just a different product compare to tna. And if wwwe gets their own network than you can forget about it as far as any competition is concerned

staying within the PG boundaries you can still produce edgy shows but wwe needs to do those on more consistent bases. CM punk promo was the best thing in wwe for last 4-5 years and in attitude era when there was wcw you had those on weekly bases. But times have changed i think the best days for wrestling business are behind it
DeadlyFire  +   711d ago
Everything gets a rebirth in due time. Attitude Era was just one era of greatness. Everything before it was awesome as well. Since 2002 not much has happened at all. Few hit and misses and a couple of great things.

WWE has fallen apart.

They had WWE championship, Intercontinental, European, Tag titles, Woman's champ and Hardcore champ on One show every week or pretty much every other week.

Now they have two shows, Raw Champ, Smackdown Champ, Rare showing of a tag title, rare showing of a woman's champ from either side(2 minute or less matches. No joke time the next Diva match after bell rings), and well that is about it and titles/champs rarely ever do anything unless its the Main show's champ.

TNA is going well. They actually held up pretty good that one show they did against WWE. As soon as WWE found out they announced Bret Hart and other things for their show. WWE knows they are competition. That one week was better than most of the whole year of WWE entertainment and TNA as well for both shows. If they could compete every week ratings would skyrocket.

WWE already has its own network. Build from the ground up by Vince. The problem with that is it will be all WWE programming. If its anything from the past 10 years it will not be successful unless some PPVs are in there. I expect WWE films and new reality shows on there at some point. The real plus to owning his own network is that when its widely adopted they could cut ties to NBC/USA or NBC/SyFy. Not only that but the rating could change to whatever he wanted it to be. Although Vince wanted PG. He won't be around forever.

Most of the WCW guys in TNA are on their last wrestling years. Just like the Undertaker. Sad to say. He only competes once a year now really it appears. So his streak is running down. There is a physical limit to wrestling for so long. Sting doesn't compete much in TNA. Hogan, and Flair don't either. Only one really signed atm other than those 3 is Angle, Chavo, Dudleys, Jeff Hardy, RVD, Anderson. None of those are really near the red line age for wrestling just yet either. Some are close to it, but still a good 5+ years left.

Hogan/Bischoff are not main controllers of TNA either way so its not running into the ground. They are only part of the crew.

TNA is on the right track to being on the same map, but they are making no real moves and that is their only problem. No real progress without battles. I am liking their new group.

Agree mate. This is why the attitude era ended
ShadowKingx  +   712d ago
i can’t believe they can’t use SUCK IT as a chant, specially when DX was a huge part of the attitude era. Why waste time on attitude era if you can’t make the attitude era. i mean geez if you have to make an option so that the parents can turn SUCK IT into S@$% If you have to . THQ does not know how much there screwing attitude era up with this PG crap. I understand they trying make all audiences buy this title. But the attitude era was made back then only for a specific audiences. Anyway I’m just saying they have many options they can do so the people who really want the attitude era ( who are true WWF fans) can get the attitude era.

i swear i can’t believe WWE has not jumped in on this a say make it attitude era or leave it the hell alone.

I don't know where that lie came from but the words "Suck It" will be in as a chant. The words "Suck It" on Mike Tyson's shirt is the thing that got censored, but the words are still said in the game. That's why you can't believe everything you read on the internet ladies and gentlemen.

Yeah i know about the mike tyson words, but the audience still chanted it and its was still part of the attitude era.

That's quite an idiotic way to think. Although the "fights" might not be real, do you think the kids know that? Hell, do you even think some crazy adults know that? I've seen some people get into huge arguments over whether or not it's real or not.

I knew as a kid that wrestling was fake. Doesn't mean that my parents wanted me hearing foul language. I understood context.

But then I had caring parents that actually monitored me, and that's pretty rare these days.

Cartoon network has more balls than the wwe. I was watching total drama island, and they said crap and damn, and it had somebody walking around naked. It was blurred out, but it was still more edgy than what the wwe has had.

rocky047586  +   712d ago
Yes it was. Weren't you a kid when you were watching it? WWE has been a kids oriented show since 1984 when Vince McMahon took over from his Father. They had to do something to beat WCW in the ratings so the Attitude Era was born, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't aimed at kids, it was and always has been.

The demographic of kids changed though, instead of the 8-11 year olds it was the 13-25 year olds that they were aiming for, still kids and young adults though. The set up they have now still has the same level of physicality as it did in the Attitude era, not having cursing and blood isn't going to hurt the overall quality of the show. Just right now Sheamus and Daniel Bryan are having a bad ass street fight match that would've been just as good in the Attitude Era and it doesn't have blood spewing everywhere.
JoySticksFTW  +   711d ago
Dude, Attitude Era was not a kids show.

Just because a kid watches something doesn't mean that's the intended audience or core demographic.

If a kid's dad takes him to a R-rated movie (like parents used to do back in the day when the new Friday the 13th was out), does that mean that movie was targeted for kids.

Also back in the day, parents used to let us have a drink under their supervision. Alcohol wasn't marketed to kids.

You said it yourself. WWE aimed at an older demographic during the Attitude Era.

Kids still went to it yes, but it was not targeted specifically to them. I went to WWWF matches as a baby. Vince Sr didn't target babies.

Vince jr had this obsession with super heroes and baby-faces couldn't only be pitted against rule-breakers. The main competition (NWA / WCW) was potrayed as more realistic all along and things had to change for Vince Jr since the crowd wasn't interested in that cartoony stuff anymore.

Vince told the locker room that he lost his pulse for what people wanted (gimmicks etc), and wrestlers had to bring their real selves out more in their characters. HBK and the Kliq have been pushing for this anyway, because they felt more realism and attitude needed to be added to the business.

And then they had young upstarts like ECW starting to make its rise.

That's when Vince had to make the change to survive, and eventually win the Monday Night wars.

Wrestling was now cool and the in-thing for young men to watch. And of course kids are gonna watch too.

But things are being pulled back. Cena himself says that his finisher went from the F-U to the Attitude Adjustment to appease the kids.

And the physicality has been pulled back as well. For example, the wrestlers are now fined for chairs shots to the head, even if protected. And the level of blading / bleeding has been pulled back as well (which Dusty Rhodes talks about in one of those round tables).

PG era may at times have these (Attitude era) elements, but it is hardly the norm now. And this makes the product seem bland and watered-down for many who witnessed the rise of the Attitude Era.

My brother once had a Billy Gunn figure that had "Mr. B.A." printed on his gunks. That always bothered me... even t-shirts that said "Su*k it" bothered me...

I dunno, I haven't watched wrestling in many years, but I feel if you're going to make a game that focuses on that era... the fanbase who appreciates it is probably mature enough to handle some mild cursing.
DanSolo  +   712d ago
So is it going to be all Attitude era or just have a mode that is Attitude era????

I got bored of WWF/WWE after the Attitude Era and stopped watching it, but a game based on the Attitude Era (Done Right) could persuade me to purchase the game!

I don't know much about the game though as it just wasn't on my radar until I saw Attitude Era lol

LoneWanderer09  +   712d ago
Come on i can't believe just because the TV programing is PG, why does it have to ruin the game as well.
optimus  +   712d ago
I think people are blowing this out of proportion. Up until last year the only wwe game i bought was wwe'07 and i don't recall people swearing in that game. Stone cold held up fists instead of middle fingers...

the wwe is currently a pg company, that is the audience that watches their shows and buys their merchandise so switching their videogame product to teen or M just to please a handful of people from that era is not in their best interest.

Not every game out there has to reflect their tv counterpart or we would have players in football and basketball games swearing all the time...sure having swear chants would add to the "realism" of the game, especially if they chanted "we want puppies" during a divas match but not doing so wouldn't take away from the overall experience...that is if the rest of the game is top notch.

If the wwe ended up putting the proper chants in a game that is aiming to be pg then it would be hit with all kinds of controversy that they probably wouldn't want...

if you're going to complain about a few chants that were part of that era then you should also complain about them not including chyna or chris benoit in the game...
so if you're not down with the way the game is shaping up then i got 3 words for you...DON'T BUY IT!

optimus  +   712d ago
So what's your point? All the more reason for those games to have swears and chants in them but they didn't and nobody seemed to complain then...

Now they announce the attitude era and people act like it should be rated M.

People seem to forget why they started that "attitude" in the 1st place. Yes, they were losing ratings to wcw so they felt like they had to crank it up.
There were times that had me saying "is this necessary?" did people really find triple h seemingly having sex with a corpse entertaining??

I'm not saying that era didn't have it's good tv moments but studies have shown that their most profitable years were when they went pg...i'll point out again that they even have a kid version of their magazine... From a business standpoint it makes sense to keep the game pg if they want bigger sales numbers.

Fans don't approve cause PG has sucked(In my opinion that is) and it's not cause it's PG, it's cause they lost creativity turning PG.

I remember back when Lita and Edge would be having sex in the ring and now it's just mainly family friendly, you don't get those mature interesting storylines anymore.

So I have a question.

Why cant they make a PG version and a M rated version?
Would it be so hard to have parental controls on this game?
They do it on other games, why not give the fans what they want?

Well, that was 3 questions, but anyway...
