The International Red Cross has recently been pushing for so-called “hyper realistic” video games to follow international humanitarian laws and penalize players for their in-game crimes, such as gunning down civilians.
Hah, if that ever happened crime rates would go way up. Call me crazy, but I think I'd rather have someone killing people in games than going out and doing it in real life.
So im going to jail for 1st degree murder cause i wanted my money back from a hooker for her poor performance in gta5? Damn when i get out ill be sure to complain to red cross instead of murder next time.
I'm all for this to be implemented. In EVERY game that has been released so far! Come on Red Cross, go for it!
I'm ok with this. Kratos should be locked up for all the people he has killed in his game. Kratos should definitely be punished.
You already face consequences.... in GTA, cops come, gangs fight you, etc.... In military shooters, you lose or end up dying. There are no games where its just a person going around being the devil with absolutely no consequence to it.... What do they want? Your in game avatar to go to jail for life, thus giving you a game over screen and the game explodes so you can never play it again?
If I hadn't already lost faith in humanity 47 times, this would definitely have done it.
As long as we're not being punished for thought crimes, I'm cool.
I couldn't dodge them in Virtua COP if your ever in a situation where you find yourself hiding behind the same wall as six heavily armed men in a shoot out with the police, don't just jump out as soon as the last terrorist goes down
So I'd be sent down for mass genocide? great...
Could be a nice idea for a game story, the final boss would be to evade the authorities, kill the leaders, take over the government and destroy control and totalitarianism thus freeing the world(I mean Japan)and then hand the control back to the people all jubilating. /end wet dream.
