bully is so harmless, i've played it on ps2 and from what i hear the new edition isnt any more violent.

It's as stupid as claiming that the Metal Gear Solid games after MGS2 are trashless violent games. MGS series is a good example of choice based video games. You don't have to kill anyone and are in fact reward those who take a non-violent approach to completing the game.

ohh boy here we go again.. and its not like its a NEW GAME..

why don't they just say we shouldn't be able to buy MARIO games cause it targets GOOMBAs and KOOPAs.

Or we shouldn't be able to play Wii Sports cause we have to HIT a ball.. in a violent almost REAL gesture, kinda like swinging the racket.. and don't get me started on WII BOXING.. now that should have these kinds of groups OUTRAGED!
