Let us put warnings in games before any violent action is committed.
That wouldn't kill the immersion at all...
keep the violence cliz..blow me.
You're an idiot. How you don't get what he's trying to say is beyond me. Please, shut up. Sarcasm truly is hard to translate over the internet.
violence in videogames: me liiike : D stay away from drugs kids!
if they want to stop violence in games, then why not stop violence in films? Any kid who stays up relatively late can see a film like aliens on TV.. Hmm if you cannot regulate TV and film broadcasted then keep away from our games.
...or we can simply raise awareness about ratings for games (and films) so that parents can do their job.
need more LOL
There should be a warning before each and every potential act of violence in every game. lol That would be rediculous. Gears of War 3 would be like a 100 hour game.
Any of the GTAs. "Are you sure you would like to kill that pixelated person?"
*Presses Button for Chainsaw Kill* Warning: The following scenes will contain Blood Gore Dismemberment Swearing Disturbing Scenes of Violence Viewers Discretion IS advised What it really should be is Mom buys Timmy GEoW3, Cashier takes Mom aside and chainsaws a Locust for her to see. Mom, is then sickened and repulsed and little Timmy can continue to play Farmville.
They mean when you start the game up. Not every time. You should have read the article.
Actually Brutal Legend had a unique way of going about it. In the opening cinematic, someone is about to get decapitated, and the game pauses and asks them player if he/she want to have full violence during their playthrough (selecting yes continues the decapitation, selecting no makes the victim simply faint). The game did the same with language. The game paused right before Eddie Riggs drops an F-bomb, and you could select whether or not to bleep out the cursing during your playthrough.
games never kill people, people kill people
Games kill video game people.
Video kill the radio star.
o people kill themselves over video games. But lets sweep that under the rug....if all else fails, lets point the finger at what group decided to go this route.
games give CRAZY PEOPLE something to ride on, they dont make them crazy
more like heavy metal
Seriously? You call this violent????
ah, Heavy Metal makes people want to kill....... themselves.
yeah @iflow your right lmao u see the hate for rap on this site.
Real life needs this too. Are you sure you want to punch this person? y/n?
Violence in games aren't the problem.. It's the people playing 'em that are the problem. If you are immature or violent.. or just plain stupid then you shouldn't be playing violent video games, simple as.
Which leads to the one reason they are violent and immature. Their parents. Retarded in retarded out.
..before every bulet fired there will be a pop-op asking "Will you continue being violant towards others?" :D
I think the warning should say something like : " The following game features violence. Are your parents halfway responsible, and have they actually done their job and taught you not to be an idiot. If no, please discontinue play of this game." Let's blame the real reason things like this happen. Bad Parenting.
ESRB and other age rating systems should be more than enough, the most I can see being done that wouldn't be absolutely stupid is just making sure that cashiers reaffirm that the customer knows what the games contain. I'm sure Timmy's mom with think twice after you tell her that GoW3 has you slice open a centaur in all its blood and organ filled glory.
I think that's the problem...Timmy's mom won't say no, even if she does know. Parents really suck at parenting in today's world.
Put like a 2 second warning during the starting credits. Ynow, when you pop in the disk it has the developer logos and shit? Stick it in there somewhere and let us skip it
If were talking about desensitization, of course games do. But in reality, your killing avatars not people.
Unlimited violence* *Exclusive to XBL Gold users only, excludes Silver
Hahah, my brother had Power Rangers Dino Thunder on the gamecube where you gotta controll the mega zords. So natually your stoming round and you automatically head for the things that move, i.e. the cars on the roads. What happens. You have Tommy calmly saying down the radio "You're one of the Power Rangers. You should be protecting the people." Resume stomping the cars. That game is fuckin shit btw so dont touch.
