No reason it shouldn't be the same line as every other entertainment medium out there. Problem is there are still higher ups out there with this old stigmatic mindset that video games are just kids toys. I don't get pissed about censorship because i want to see T&A, i get pissed because every time something gets censored in a game that wouldn't be censored otherwise on any other medium, it's a step back away from games being a respected art form. Stifling creativity in general and keeping games back from what they can truly become and express.

Kids these days are probably exposed to everything as soon as they get their smartphone or Ipad. I really don't know why anyone feels the need to censor anything...that's the job of responsible parents(if they choose to parent that way).

I was exposed in 5th grade when searching for Dragon ball z pictures on the internet. Some how ended up on some dbzxxx on accident. They have that content on movies, TV series, Netflix, woman wearing leggings in the store etc... its everywhere. I still wanna know the actual censorship document for the full extent of it from sony.

I agree it is the job of parents to mind what their kids are consuming. But a rating of 'M' is useful for parent's who don't game. as the OP said above, publishers want to avoid an 'M' rating as they think all games are for kids. It would be nice if studios made the game they want, publishers marketed it with an 'M' is necessary, and adults could buy it without restriction. The problem is, publishers, don't want to restrict their market by limiting a large group from purchasing if their parent's wouldn't buy a Mature rated game. So publishers tell their studios to censor the content. It sux. I agree. But use the rating system and no censorship is necessary.

You nailed it. Most gamers now are in there 30s ,have disposable income , and would like some more mature themed games.

Tetsujin1777d ago

It's still the job of the parents to decide what is/n't appropriate for their household, not the entertainment industry. Video game companies have a rating system for a reason; use it. All censorship does is make the lazy/stupid even worse to the point where anything can be considered bad/inappropriate, and freedom of expression will be a myth instead of a right.

Instead of censorship, educate and let the public decide on their own. Playing parent does nothing but make things worse.

Wherever Sony wants it drawn apparently....

JackBNimble1777d ago

It's also "Sony's" platform and they do have the right to choose whether or not they want to allow certain content on "their " platform.

gamer78041777d ago

Yup it's their right, they can do whatever they want regardless if it's not for the players.

rainslacker1777d ago

Their right sure. Can't argue that.

But there is the ethical discussion on if they should censor. It's also worth questioning their motives for censorship, and if that holds moral or ethical grounds, or is it trying to cater to something that goes against what the user base wants because it is caused by an outside influence.

Then of course, the whole discussion on how it seems to be applied unevenly across the games released on the system. Like they didn't say that R* had to remove the nudity or sex from RDR2. If they had, and had R* said something, the sh*t storm that would come from that would be actually damaging to them. As it is, it's against games that not enough people play to get worked up over. But even the SJW media can't justify it against a game that people care about in the tens of millions.

If what they were censoring was as bad as they think, the law would have beaten them to censoring it.
In other words, if the law doesn't have a problem with it, there is no need for anyone else to be a judgemental, patronising bitch about it.
