then where does it stop.
Why do video games get lines where movies and books don't?
See I want sex in games, but for some reasons it is tip toeing at best.
Movies and books have no problems with sex.
You draw a line here, it easily goes into games you most likely will enjoy, there is a lawyer ready to argue your pixel killing is as bad as the banned one.
I'm all for, if you don't like it don't buy it. I'm good if you say why you don't like it. I'm not a fan in saying "this should be banned, because you don't like it", we all want freedom, we don't want a dictator, but comments like those are dictatorial in nature. I don't like, want banned.
And I am one that totally has no problem with understanding the difference between real and fantasy.
I don't really know why sex is still a taboo subject in games at this point. Maybe because it's still (incorrectly IMO) considered a "kid's pastime?" I think it's odd that there isn't more sex in games too, and judging by the popularity of how much the Source engine is used to produce porn, I'd say I'm not the only one.
As for video games vs. books and movies, I think there are a couple of things at play. First, books and movies are much more mature media, and have gone through this process already decades ago. Games are just starting to go through it. Second, games are fundamentally different in that you, as a player, are perpetrating the action, and are therefore automatically sympathetic to it. Whereas in books and movies, you are a passive observer, and there's an out: you can choose to accept or reject what your are seeing. The rejection argument is much harder to make when you're taking the action to put the pistol in the child's mouth, pull the trigger, and blow virtual brains onto the wall. Yes, it's still virtual and pretend and no one gets hurt, but it's still abhorrent and indefensible.
'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? - GC
