Free Speech and Worst Case Scenarios

In a way, Gamer 2.0 believes that the developers of Manhunt 2 deserve this. Judging from the hands-on descriptions of a certain popular internet gaming news site, there are not only incredibly brutal depictions of violence in the game, but these inhumanities are rewards for effective use of the game's mechanics. Gamer 2.0 can understand that the majority of videogames are based on a very simple live or die formula, and they can understand that some people might want entertaining depictions of violence. But to enjoy so immensely the pain and death of anything (virtual or not) seems...evil.

Why wouldn't Gamer 2.0 want a game like this banned and condemned? Well, for starters, there's the issue of censorship. Make no mistake-what the ESRB has done is censored the game. They're fully aware that most retailers will not carry AO (Adults Only) titles because they just don't sell.

The story is too old to be commented.

Glad to see that even if people don't believe in the game that they still believe in the right for people to have access to it.

Good article. "Make no mistake—what the ESRB has done is censored the game. They're fully aware that most retailers will not carry AO (Adults Only) titles because they just don’t sell." Can anything be done? This is terrible. Censorship is horrible and will hurt game industry in long term. And we dont have Director's-Cut-Unrated like Hollywood does (Except for a few PC titles like FEAR and Indigo Prophecy).
