A petition signed by over 40,000 called for its removal, but other R-rated DVDs and games still remain on the retailer’s shelves. A move that’s one step forward and another back.
SONS OF ANARCHY SPOILER ALERT. Seriously, don't read anymore if you haven't seen it. you've been warned. I just saw a tv show where a man gets raped in jail, then stabbed to death, an elderly man shot, and then a guy killed his own mother. But that's ok because theres no nipples in the show. Ps I'll tell you one thing this ban accomplished. I wasn't going to buy this game yet, but with 2 big stores pulling it I got nervous and went out and bought it before they do something stupid like a total ban in a year old game. Well done target and Kmart.
Your Gomer Pyle avatar suggests you've seen Full Metal Jacket. Therefore you must be locked away before you do something stupid like shoot a bunch of random people. But hey, at least GTA won't pollute your perspective ;)
But you can kill men also... Why do these stupid feminazis gloss over the fact that this is a sandbox game, you aren't encouraged to kill women, you're encouraged to do what you want, be that kill men, women, or animals. There's a torture scene against a male, you kill hundreds of male cops, and hundreds of male NPC's throughout the course f the game...yet no one gets up in arms over those deaths. But if someone posts an image of a dead female prostitute, there's outrage! It's such hypocritical, ignorant BS. And the game has been out for over a year, selling on their shelves...but they're only taking it off the shelves now? How does that make any sense?
I find it more shocking that it was signed by 40.000 people or ''customers'' who might play games themselves Sounds more like bitter parents to me, who then return home to beat their kid for dropping a vase
It's just lost revenue for them. If they want to shoot themselves in the foot, so be it.
Target is retarded...so you ban gta for violance against women, but yet they still sell hundreds of movies, games, and books that has violence
Oh Australia, remember when you had a reputation for being tough, rugged, wild, and free? It seems all I hear about Australia anymore are things that support the notion that its turned into a giant nanny state. No one's compelling anyone else to purchase the game. If you think its inappropriate, vote with your wallet and let the game collect dust on the shelf. The idea that a vocal minority feels it has the right to impose its views to the detriment of others is getting so so old.
This is all a big mistake, all these people thinking they have become victorious and taken their first step in the war to ban violent games... Allow me to explain the reality: They ran out of copies of the game.
Makes me wanna buy the game.
