Sims 2 Backlash Backlash

Electronic Arts Slams Sims 2 Paedophile Claims on SPOnG.com (thanks Mike Martinez) has the response from EA about recent claims (story) of improper content in The Sims 2:
“This is nonsense,” said Jeff Brown, spokesman for EA. “Reasonable people understand there is nothing improper in the game. Reasonable people recognise what mods are. A consumer who chooses to use a mod does so without any kind of agreement with the company. There is no nudity. There is nothing improper or vulgar in the Sims 2.”

Brown continued, “Reasonable people understand the San Jose Mercury News is not responsible for vulgar things that people doodle into the margins of the paper.”

Come on EA. For just ONE time, be something that gamers appreciate. Sue Jack Thompson into oblivion, then bury him somewhere. Or just step on him.

It's for the good of all of us.

Exactly! I'm rather stunned, frankly!

Finally, someone is using reason and logic...

Putting something in print, or stating it publicly, that damages a person's or company's reputation and ability to do business that is proveably false is a very, very sound basis for a lawsuit.

Jacky-poo stated that these huge selling EA/Maxis games were enabling and supporting pedophiles (one of the biggest reputation-killing terms in this society). The basis of his saying that was that if you removed the blur with a simple code, what was left was detailed genetalia, including on children. That is about as false a statement as I can think of, and can be proven in a heartbeat - just grab a copy of The Sims, 1 or 2, and try it.

I'm not saying that EA/Maxis should sue, but if they did want to, they certainly have something solid to work from.

Then make an uproar! Sue people! Get games to have $90 Million Goverment Funded investigations! Completely ignore all logical responses that contradict your own way of thinking!

BTW: When I took a shower this morning, I saw my penis. Im suing the goverment for not censoring it. It should be rated adults only, i'm only a minor ffs! I dont want to see this!

I wonder if any of these morons have ever been on the internet. They would probably sue everyone invovled with the internet if they saw web pages like stile or of the like. It just goes to show you how out of tune with reality these people are.

He got a bit pushy. I wouldn't expect that. It's refreshing.



Some of the people in this thread, though, felt RockStar got what it deserved. Is the nudity in the Sims really all that different than anything in San Andreas? Both were technically there but completely inaccessable without either downloading or buying a gameshark. If RockStar should be beaten into the ground for something you need a mod to get to, why shouldn't Maxis?

And thus the ghosts of all the dead lawsuits of the *0' returns to attack the makers of video games.

If any of these cases are won, all modable games will cease, as the risk will be too big.

Not true. The nudity in the Sims is not there, just waiting for a code unlock. The artists never made nude textures. You literally have to download mods off the internet to get the nude bodies. How is that Maxis's fault that some idiot downloads those user mods and then gets upset with them?
