Rockstar court controversy again in Red Dead Redemption

Guardian writes: "There are few better ways to boost awareness of a major game release than to generate some sort of media controversy around the title. Mortal Kombat probably didn't need such gory fatalities. Carmageddon probably didn't need quite that much blood. Last Autumn's Modern Warfare 2 certainly could have managed without the preposterous and unnecessary 'No Russian' airport mission."

I will always buy every game made by Rockstar Games!

Every single game they release to this world is a priceless gem :)

All of this talk about 'didn't need this or that' is kind of annoying from an artistic perspective.

- Did Da Vinci need to represent male genitalia in his Vitruvian Man?
- Did Coppola need to show a life-like horse head in Woltz's bed?
- Did Burgess need to be descriptive with the drug use and violent acts described in A Clockwork Orange?

Whether someone thinks something is overboard or not, there is no clear identification of should or should not when it comes to art. I don't question a person's desire to present their work in one way or another, I only use my own opinion of the manner in which it is used to either continue playing/watching/reading what they've created.
