people complain about games and their violence and sex related themes, but the thing they dont realize is that if a game is rated M it means, kids below 17 should not be playing them. But then you see all this kids playing M rated games and parents complaining, please read the F*CKING rating before you buy a game and complain about it.

A rated M game is the equivalent of a rated R movie. I have yet to see anything in a game that comes close to the sex and/or violence portrayed in movies like Friday the 13th, Saw, Porky's and the like.

It is very difficult to get it through these peoples thick heads that games are not just for children.

And I love the comment on "common-sense legislation". Since when did censorship become common sense?

Think heads indeed. I hate these people. They annoy the crap out of me more than 8 year old fanboys.

We do have regulation in the games industry.... it's called the ratings system.
