Oh my god its named Bully so it must be evil and encourages kids to beat up and pick on other kids... Didn't Jack T. get owned in court over this already? Making claims about the game that are untrue?

I haven't played it yet but have it coming from gamefly for 360 (hopefully it doesn't lock up on me haha) but from what I've heard from friends that played the PS2 version its not "pro" bullying. The bullys are the villains in the game...

I must have written 5 different papers in college on the effect of video games on children and I could never find any conclusive evidence that games could effect a child anymore than TV or a movie. If your child doesn't know the difference between right and wrong then you failed as a parent. If you see your child trying out WWE moves on their younger brother they are probably susceptible to outside influence and you shouldn't be buying them video games in the first place. Most of these games that people complain about are rated M for mature anyways. Stop complaining and do some parenting and stop trying to scape goat the industry.

has boy on boy kissing, and its even an achievement in the 360 version. Im sorry but the majority of people will not accept that kind of stuff.
