"The game contains a scene in which two characters have sex on a table;"

Can't wait now.

RumbleFish2257d ago

What characters? A boy and a girl? A man and a girl? A woman and a boy? A woman and a horse, goat, dog or whatever? Two girls? WTF? I wanna know!

Bob-Dole2257d ago

This is Bob Doles type of game. It reminds Bob Dole of his childhood.

Bob Dole.

NateNater2257d ago

lol Those Bob Dole jokes are soooo old.

ThatArtGuy2256d ago

Isn't that the point? Old jokes for an old person? (It's not funny if you have to explain it.)

kids will still play it anyway, who's going to stop em?

rdgneoz32256d ago

Kids will need a parent or someone older to buy it for them. So no one will be stopping them, they'll be encouraging them if the kids play it.

T9X692257d ago

Sounds like my kind of game right there. Bring it on Rockstar I'm tired of waiting.

TacoTaru2257d ago

I would have purchased two copies of this game to play with my teenage son. After reading this I will buy none. I certainly wouldn't want to play with the juveniles that are excited by this.

DARK WITNESS2257d ago

I have to say I agree with T9X69.

I resepct your choice on the matter, I am 30 and if I had kids, well I would still buy it for myself but my own stash of games would be locked away anyway and if i ever cought them playing it they would be and a Crap load of trouble. I am sure though from all the trailers and videos it was kind of clear that this sort of content would be in the game.

and as he said.... it is R*

divideby02257d ago

Taco... I hear you...but than again if you look at all the games with this type of stuff in it...there are reasons for the rating system... and also welcome to playing current video games....sad but ME, GOW, GTA all have this type of stuff....

liquidsnake2256d ago

Good to hear a parent is finally doing what a parent should.
I'm 22 with no kids so I'll play the sh!t out of this.

STICKzophrenic2256d ago

I'm 27, and when (if) I have kids, I'll have them gaming as early as I can and playing all kinds of games, including this.

jagstatboy2256d ago

anyone who would allow their children to play this, like that douche above, should be imprisoned.

electricshadow2256d ago (Edited 2256d ago )

I wish that didn't sound as ignorant as it did. So, because his parenting choices are different from yours, he is automatically a douche and should be imprisoned? You're right, your logic doesn't have any flaws in it. It's the parents' discretion. If they think little Billy and little Sally can play it, they'll let them play it. I bought GTA III when I was in grade five. It's completely dependent on the maturity level of the child.

You said you was going to buy two copies of the game, which means you obviously seen the trailers, and the rated M sign with the list of why its rated M. So my question to you is, how is this article "surprising", I'm not the smartest person in the world, but I wasn't expecting Red Dead Redemption to be about horseback ridding with Ken and Barbie, I mean seriously its Rockstar games did you expect anything less than this?

lucifon2257d ago

Indeed. After every trailer it clearly shows the M rating with a list of various reasons as to why the game has this rating such as Nudity and Violence.

TacoTaru2256d ago

I didn't say it was surprising, I said it was "too bad". There is probably very little in the game that I would consider "over the line", but it will keep me, and people like me, from buying and playing an otherwise beautiful game.

The other thing that is sad is the drooling excitement shown by some of the folks because there is sex in the game. I'm not sure that losing the people that are buying for that reason would economically outweigh the number of people they lose that are like me.

rdgneoz32256d ago

Games are rated mature for a reason. Its for mature people. If you're not old enough to purchase the game on your own or not mature enough to handle the content of the game, don't get it or play it. Swearing in games? Tell me you never swear before saying anything. Sex in games? Tell me you're still a virgin or only have sex for procreation and that you've never watched a movie that had a sex scene in it, before complaining. Also, the main star of the game states he's a married man as unknownhero1123 said.

I for one, will be getting the game and enjoying it with a few friends who are mature enough to enjoy it.

TacoTaru2256d ago

@rdgneoz3 I don't quite follow your logic. Swearing in games is okay because you swear IRL. Sex in games is okay because you aren't a virgin. Blowing peoples heads off in games is okay... ?

Because you do it in real life doesn't mean it needs to be in a game. Have you watched the old John Wayne westerns? They were excellent without hardly a damn or hell showing up. Clint Eastwood was a little rougher but those movies were still watchable with an early teen.

Also, I'm not sure that swearing or sex is a sign of maturity. I don't consider all those people that get arrested in "Cops" on TV mature although I'm sure they are all old enough to buy the game.
