Watchdog Group Calls for Investigation in Wake of Manhunt 2 Re-rate

While Rockstar fans are high-fiving over news that Manhunt 2 will now see the light of day as an M-rated horror game, the Campaign For a Commercial-Free Childhood is not impressed.

The group has called for a federal government investigation into how Manhunt 2 came to be an M-rated game.

God, I hope they all die soon. Do they even understand the meaning of M! Rated M for Mature (18)!

Agreed, they should be wasting there time trying to stop thier kids getting their hands on these games, not stopping those of us old enough to play them from getting them! Uptight bunch of do-gooding b*stards!

I'm not so sure whether I'm going to get this game or not. This game is a little bit too violence for me. In my opinion: extreme violent + stealth = creepy.

Yeah man, I have never really liked manhunt, but they are for my own reasons. But if they have changed the game sufficiently enough to give it an M rating then what's the fuss?

ShiftyLookingCow4076d ago

I dont like this game either but "federal government investigation into how Manhunt 2 came to be an M-rated game" is too much. Its as though the government has nothing else to do

tonsoffun4076d ago

I completely agree, if the game was sufficiently changed to warrant a re-classification, then there is no need for a government investigation, unless there was money exchanged or something....

but to be fair this is all political nonsense anyhoo - it is ridiculous.

Raise their own children, and stop trying to dictate how other people raise their children. The woman is probably pissed off because she found her son with a M rated game. She of course being to busy to watch his game buying habits, and would like to take it out on the rest of us. Remember this a country where parents have the right to raise their children as they see fit and watchdog groups like this seek to take that right away. They want government legislation on choices that should belong to parents. One last thing the average age of gamers is 33, so how the heck is this marketed for children under 17, when the money coming in is from people in there 20's and 30's

PS. don't care the game myself but I hate censorship.
