Can't wait for Black Ops xD
What? Only like 5 more sleeps or something?! :)
Black Ops, Black Ops :D It's going to be EPIC :)
Way too epic. Still trying to find someone who thinks Medal of Honor is better!
@granthinds i think moh is better im getting black ops just for the single player then passing it on to my nephew.
Its pretty insane that they want to treat video games like porn. Video games are way more awesome!
Hahaha! But ye, still, i do understand all the concerns. I think it's important that these things are strict, not to demonize the gaming industry, but to protect children who aren't discerning enough to play violent and/or sexual games. Quite straight forward i think.
Grant you are best.
Well Blizzard did say you can't fight piracy before they released Starcraft 2.
It's true but they can prevent it by offering a product that's worth the money, like Battlenet 2.0.
But it's good that the games are now being sold to people of the right age because some kids can't handle the things which go on in games. However it's those kids that can handle it that lose out on some amazing experiences experience. I can't imagine having to wait till 18 to play Gears of War. Must be quite frustrating.
Looking back at my first experiences with violent games; I'm glad that games were where it happened and not due to some tragedy at home, on a highway or in a war. Games are good like that. You can turn em off...
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the sale of violent video-games to under-aged gamers illegal already? Kids that are 12 should not be playing games with an M or 18+ rating, even they can handle the content.
It's not illegal, it's like film: it's up to the discernment of the parents to let the children watch the films or not.
Also, on the one hand parents complain about the extreme violence in video games, that leads their kids to hack up their classmates and on the other hand they buy the games for their kids thinking that the age restriction is a "suggestion". L______O______L
Parents should really decide on how much gaming violence they want to expose their kids to and then stick to that. It's all about boundaries...
It's funny how Microsoft and Sony are turning their "hardcore" gaming systems into "HD Wiis". I have a PS3, and frankly I'm a bit peeved at the direction these "Hardcore" systems are taking, following Nintendo like lap dogs. I like the Kinect and Move, but seriously, I would rather be playing Gears of War, God or War, Halo, BFBC2, Gran Turismo 5 or LBP2 to name a few "hardcore" games, than jumping around in front of my screen like a noob, while playing "Pinkies Adventure's" not on the expected Wii platform, but on a PS3 or Xbox.
There definitely is a place for kid-friendly motion games, but it's not a place I want to be in right now either :D
TWINKIES ADVENTURE HD: the most exciting Wii to PS3/XBox360 port this year... however, on more of a serious note, i'm surprised no one has placed legislation on WoW since it has resulted in a number of deaths not to mention some hectic neglect.
