If you are a video game publisher on Youtube, you may be surprised next time you log into the video networking site to discover a strike or ban notification for uploading sexual related content from GTA V.
I saw this coming the moment Google got their grubby paws on youtube.
Thats why i stopped uploading on there. Too many red tape for my liking.
thats USA medias in a nutshell, show violence, torture, murders....BUT DONT YOU DARE TO SHOW A NIPPLE OR SAY THE WORD "FUCK", such a painfully dumb way to think.
The irony of it, when you actually think how twisted that actually is.
I get what you're saying but who here would honestly rather their kids watch sex scenes than experience the torture or violent scenes from GTA? Hmmm I dunno...I would pick the the latter two. Weird I know. Maybe its the way I've been brought up. *shrugs*
yup the act of sex is more taboo than killing other people..I don't know, maybe its because of the nature of humans.. we always had to kill each other to survive.. but we also need sex to actually live. I could see how over time sex became more taboo.But its kind of hard to explain..I would rather my kids see neither sex nor murder in video games and I would feel equally the same if he or she seen either.
Thats quite dumb i'd say, we all know that find pornography on internet is easier to find than a lemon cookies recipe so if you really think that kids haven't watched porn you're delusional. With this i'm not saying that Youtube should allow pornography but they should allow soft scenes with the age restriction system they're currently using. It's really nonsense to ban something natural like sex and not murder and torture but what can I say the Western culture is weird.
GTA V has always been one of those overly violent games, i don't actually like it and feel like it does glorify the act of committing crimes.
That's bull, games are games and people with enough sense should be able to differentiate between the two. Playing gta v, shouldn't inspire someone to go do what they see in real life, or they would need to see a shrink asap. I love GTA 5, can't wait for it to come to the PS4, but i won't be uploading any of my videos on youtube anymore, cause there is clearly some double standards going on.
Thats true but I don't think glorifying the acts means to do the acts.Back in the day when I played GTA I had no problem just mowing down pedestrians it was just funny at the time but now that it seems so real and all of the horrible stuff I have seen thanks mostly to the internet, its hard for me to kill pedestrians.Because I still have those images in my head.Of course I know its fake but it also bring back images. I don't think GTA or games for that matter should change one bit but its something over time I have to get used to now that I am more self conscious and aware of what I am doing in those video games.
This is why I am so glad, Google never got a hold of Twitch. Youtube has long been ruined for gamers. Since it was taken over.
TBH, the torture scene wasn't that bad. Maybe cause I know I am watching a video game. People have always felt sort of weird about talking about sex and the very mention of it, makes everyone act like prunes.
I say ban GTA V for good, always hated that game. I think its a cheap way of grabbing shock value. Wonder what other unimaginable things Rockstar are going to plan on GTA 6.
Socially uplifting? Dude what are you talking about, recommend me one socially uplifting game that could expand my horizon then, smarty pants.
The thing is I have seen some peoples youtube pages with millions of views for only posting up videos of how to pick up hookers and how to have sex on GTAV. Video broadcasting was supposed to be entertainment not some quick way of gaining views for ads on your page. I support google banning any pages that are doing that.
Jus because your not entertained doesn't mean others aren't, who gives you the right to decide what people can and cannot upload? The fact that some people have millions of views for uploading their gameplay of those types of content is proof that its in demand. Youtube never used to be this way and I for one am fed up and moving my streaming, uploading activities over to Twitch. Google and Youtube can suck it.
So what happens when Rockstars adds photo mode and video upload features on GTAV, which they most likely will? All this banning publishers, just seems overly unfair and very hypocritical.
Its the country thats violent, don't blame it on a game, why is it that in my country Denmark where a lot is playing GTA but we have it peaceful.
Yeah clicked on a video the other day looking at the kill Arman TV series was a video of two guys being decapitated one with a chainsaw the other with a knife the way it cut his throat was disturbing wish I could unsee that think it was called killar man or something flag it if you see it . Not about Gta but I thought it is relevant no Beyoncé on YouTube but headless corpse no drama.
Did you end up on the word side of Youtube?
When sick twisted videos from groups like Isis are completely fine with the YouTube lords but nudity isn't you know that these people should be permanently removed from any decision making for the rest of their lives.
Thats youtube for ya.
Never understood the big censorship towards sexual content, its a natural part of human life.
Um.........population control*cough*........ But really why would sex not be ok in a country that glorifies it constantly to sell us garbage. Should just say sexual content that doesn't benefit us financially is banned. Sex is so basic where murder and torture isn't. It's learned. Social violence is great for the states. It's necessary to keep the people in check. If they keep us scared then they can continue to pass legislation unchecked despite how crazy and money hungry, and power hungry the laws may be. Sex tho, it doesn't have much benefit long term. Short term financial gain yes, but at the end of the day it just creates more babies that one day will destroy the economy and destroy the worlds view of the United States being the land of opportunity. Which has already begun with the baby boomers growing old and eating up all the social security. Trust me this was thought out by people with money and it has more than one benefit for them
So let me get this straight, you can kill and torture virtual characters as much as you want but going on a date with them and having a nice quiet evening at home leads to censorships/bans? No wonder society is messed up. Surely there's a difference between consensual love between two characters and hanging out in strip clubs?
Welcome to America, where having sex or any sexual deceptions are frowned upon and violent movies and acts in media are welcomed with open arms.
