Are Black Ops 2 players pushing the limits with obscene Playercards

Darryl Linington from ITF Gaming writes:While the gaming world is sitting in front of their screens playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, either competitively or just for the hell of it… some gamers are getting creative with their Playercards… maybe a little too creative. While creating an awesome Playercard is generally the norm amongst players, some players are going a little too extreme.

Lol what were they expecting with custom emblems?

SilentNegotiator2215d ago (Edited 2215d ago )

They should have expected genitals and breasts. Lots of them.

And before people start their anti-censorship rants and whining about how violence is worse than sex, remember this....

Black Ops 2 is rated M for Mature, but sex/nudity isn't one of the descriptors. They may not be obligated to keep users from creating these things (as multiplayer to the extent of unpredictable human interaction isn't rated by the ESRB), but they're fully in their right to TRY to keep the multiplayer experience within the parameters of those descriptors.

Today i saw one with a penis chopped in half. There was little blood splatter too.

And no this isn't a joke, while it was funny because of how random it was to just see it pop up.

i wondered if the person hated men or was just expressing the limits of their maturity.

KyRo2215d ago (Edited 2215d ago )

They don't really bother me. its not really offensive but I report the emblem just to p*ss them off when Treyarch delete it :D

If you play online games (>.>) the ESRB doesn't rate the online section of games for this reason.

the emblems are not nearly as offensive as the crap people say. what is worse seeing a cartoon cock or having an 8 year old talk about raping you

pixelsword2215d ago (Edited 2215d ago )

If an 8-year-old talks about raping me I admit that's offensive, but funny; just as funny as observing that an 8-year-old doesn't have the mental capacity to realize what he actually just announced about his sexual orientation.

In other words, he might (barely) have the mental capacity to string together those words to say that to me, but I'll spin that so that he'll be crying by the end of the race.

'Cuz he's a kid.

"the emblems are not nearly as offensive as the crap people say. what is worse seeing a cartoon cock or having an 8 year old talk about raping you"

.....and? They monitor that, too, even if not all that effectively.

BaconBits2214d ago (Edited 2214d ago )

How do they monitor chat?? Since the days of Halo2 (and earlier of course) ppl have been saying some pretty bad stuff. That is the reason I mute everyone when I play online with my son.

Eh they can have their explicit emblems.

I'm perfectly content with my cookie monster.

NeXXXuS2215d ago (Edited 2215d ago )

I'm pretty proud of the one I made for my friend. 8D

MEsoJD2215d ago

This actually makes me want the game. hmmm... I'll wait for a discount.

rezzah2214d ago

Just so you know, the majority of your time will be spent running and shooting. Not looking for or at questionable avatars, unless you choose to do only this.

Yeah give the general public creation tools and expect to see a LOT of male genitalia

Reverent2214d ago

Yeah, seriously, what is up with that? Why are kids so obsessed with penises these days? What the hell his wrong with kids this generation...

MRMagoo1232214d ago

I dont think its just kids tho i hear plenty of what sound like grown men on the chat that have a penis or naked woman as a card emblem.

rbluetank2215d ago

i seen stuff way worser then that. lol i seen some really crazy stuff. i just keep it moving..

neoMAXMLC2215d ago

Some of the stuff is actually pretty impressive. Gamers sure do have crazy but creative minds.

RickHiggity2215d ago

Since when is genitalia creative?

Kingthrash3602215d ago

If on ps3 checkout mine on kingthrash I'm known for my BOLPS art. No genitelia I swear.

neoMAXMLC2215d ago

Where in my comment do I mention anything about genitalia?

I don't understand the article.... All I see is crying over nothing.

Mutant-Spud2215d ago

Reminds me of the Brando speech in Apocalypse Now.
"They send young men out to drop Napalm on innocent children but they won't let them paint the word Fuck on their airplanes because it's offensive".
This is a game where one of the objectives is to shoot other players avatars in the head as often as possible, putting a doodle on your playercard and trash talking your opponents isn't obscene in this context, if it was a G rated game the whiners might have a point.

Kingthrash3602214d ago

Couldn't have said it better myself

legend9112214d ago

Agreed, you don't like "fuck" and you're scared of female breasts but no don't worry about the guy's heads who are being sliced off or the AC-130 devastating an entire camp. Wait, what ever happened to the slicing their throats while they sleep? Oh? No? Thought so...
