Okay, time for teenage rant.
Advertisements [?]
I know this belongs in the Video Games forum, but I'm not a donor yet so THERE.

Anyhoo.

I would like to rant about Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Parents are saying that the game contains explicit sexual content, that the game is not suitable for kids.

Okay. So, you're fine with your kids beating the crap out of a cop but NO SEX. NOPE. SEX, WHAT IS THIS SEX? WE CAN'T HAVE SEX IN VIDEO GAMES. WE CAN BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF A COP BUT NO SEX.

The game was rated M for Mature (17+) for a reason. REASON, people, REASON. So that young kids couldn't buy the game. When I say young I mean 12-16, which is apparently the majority of the customers.

Parents, STOP BLAMING GAMES FOR YOUR POOR PARENTING. DON'T GIVE THE KID MONEY TO BUY A GAME UNTIL YOU CHECK THE RATING. DON'T BUY THE KID THE GAME EVEN IF HE SAYS THAT HE'S GONNA HOLD HIS BREATH UNTIL HE TURNS BLUE.

God, what are parents gonna go after next? I mean, sure, sex in a video game isn't cool (To me, at least) but I know that other people enjoy the game.

And don't say that you don't have any control! Check the rating. If you don't like the content in the game, take it away from the kid! Don't let them go over to a friends house if you think that they're going to play the game. Don't give the kid money for the game! Stop being lazy and start doing your job!

Like I said before, what are parents going to go after next? Books? Movies? T.V shows? Hmmm... Well, I guess they have to spoil the fun for everyone else, don't they? What ever happened to good ol' family entertainment?

:argh: :wtf: :rant: :rant: :rant:
