But some people still buy these rated 18 games for their children. :D

people who do that have nothing to do with my enjoyment. We shouldn't have to censor the entire public because of shitty parents.

You win a cookie for most retarded comment of the week, a prize not easily won on a place with so much competition.

Well done I guess

Games are doing fine in the US. Sure the press might blame them occasionally, but NOTHING has come out of the drama.

Australia however, people are insane with protecting the public from inappropriate content. I can't believe they don't have an R18 rating. It would be like the US not having the M rating, and any games that were above T would stay unrated.

Don't let stupid parents breed.
