Omar L. Gallaga recently wrote a story on CNN titled “Why I can’t get behind Dead Island”. Here is why the depiction of violence toward children in a game doesn't matter as much now as it may in the future.
But the media, big business and many parent's have no problem exploiting children for their cause, need, want, etc.. Not an apple to apple comparison but if it's about protecting children lets look at the complete picture. I agree with the author on this one. And the original CNN author who is uncomfortable that is fine and your opinion. It's just when these advocates try and change it for everyone that I have a problem. These games are rated MATURE for a reason and you don't have to look or expose yourself to it if you are uncomfortable but don't spoil it for the rest of us with higher levels of tolerance to FICTION.
