Did you guys here that their trying to make it illegal for violent video games to be sold to minors. One word "bull****". I'm not under 18 but that is just stupid. Yeah its good for the 14 and under crowd, but what about the 16 and 17 year olds? By that age no violent video game is going to make someome act violent. I mean theres more violence on tv. Why not do the more reasonable thing and make it illegal for a violent video game to be sold to someone under 14??

What do you guys think?

I think its a good idea to not allow kids under 12 to purchase violent games. Of course, this depends on how violent, if its a game like Guilty Gear, or Street Fighter, then I don't see the problem. Though, I don't think kids that age should be playing things like Halo, Resident Evil, or Doom. I have seen the results of those games on children, and its not always good. Actually that all depends on the child. So.....I have mixed opinions.

Like I've already said in earlier threads: if kids understand what's going on, it's OK. I've played games like Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Doom 1/2/64, Goldeneye 007, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Wolfenstein 3D when I was just 11 years old, when you begin to understand violence.

lol - Age should not matter all the time. It also is somewhat limited to maturity as well.

If it was directed to Pornography in movies, I'd definitely understand the restriction of age under 18 over here, but video games?

I've bought M-Rated games back then while I was in Canada and I was like 14 at the time, so I don't find anything wrong with the violence towards some games. I've never played Doom before, however - or other games just as gory as Resident Evil at times, so I wasn't really under the influence of extreme violent games here - if there was an influence after all.

Besides, I don't take it seriously over here - I've been playing too many friendly games like Kingdom Hearts and DDR to see that happen. lol - and its just a game, not a reality. There's a lot more violence out there in the real world - that's where the real horror begins.

I played "violent" games at yong age, with no negative effect. As a matter of fact, it was this game "violent" game (Duke Nukem 3D) which showed me where my future was. (Leveldesigning)

Young children are simply vunerable to these kinda signals, even though it's totally fake. It's good that there are requirements on age for these kinda games, although even a little kid can download anything today. (Ever saw a 5 year old teaching adults how to program in PHP, btw?)

However, perhaps that some people also saw this on tv, is when some demented kid believes a 3D-shooter is reality and decides to shoot his classmates to Kingdom Come. It's the kid that makes the link between the computergame and the reality, not the game. Next thing you see the so called parents simply blaming the developers for making games that turn their kids into monters. Games can't make anyone go mad, you must have a psyhic disturbance beforehand. If it isn't a computergame forming the inspiration of a madman to do a horrible deed, that it's a book, a movie or the wrong website. I think you all understand how evil the internet can be.

To round up my opinion, the greatest cause for mankind to slaughter eachother is still religion and they haven't ban that out of this world.

age isn't really a problem...and plus it's not the video game producer's fault that people go off and kill. Also, those banning people are stupid...they can't change a way a person is just by banning video games. They might as well ban movies and tv too because a lot of people are more likely to do what they see on tv and movies than on video games

I just think its silly that violent video games get blamed when some teenager goes nuts. I mean, they were already messed up before they started playing Postal or Doom. Blame the parents, blame society, don't blame a freaking game.

Here's something I figured out myself.

Shooting games do not make killers. Driving simulators do

Here's proof. After playing Grand Turismo 4 for a fairly long time I went out for a drive with my dad. On a long stretch of road, I started churning through the gears and was going comfortably fast. Then my dad pointed out I was doing 150km/h in a 60 zone. I was so used to GT4's speed of playing games that I bought it into realife (not to mention GT4 is almost the real thing). I wonder what would have happened if I was playing Burnout 3 before the drive?

well it is really up to the person that is playing the game. I would say one thing, the army also uses this type of simulator to train their soliders to respond to certain situation, so the games doesn't make you become violent per se, but it does give you the methodiology to become a very efficient killer.

well its a good idea yea but does it really matter most mothers and fathers got to the store with them to get them the game anyway. If I had a child I don't think I'm going to give my child 51 dollars to by a vidio game by them selves but yes it is a good idea and thats what the rating are for is so its not sold to the people under that age but as it was said earlyer no one enfoces the rule.

It's not a video game producer's fault that people are dumbasses, though.
I don't really care about the age limit being there or not, because I can just get my friends to buy video games for me. But blaming violence on video games is just finding a way to escape the fact that your poor parenting is the problem.

violent video games have never done anything to provoke violence. The only thing that a violent video game does is desensitize whoever is playing it, and if it is a first person shooter, it might make them a better shot. The current system is good and should not be changed. It is up to the parents and child's discretion as to how the disbursement of video games should be managed to minors.

We are not judged by our intentions, but by the way in which others interpret our actions.

Wow! That's a very smart slogan! I want that t-shirt, too!

Actually, the fault is the psychology of the person who plays the games. Do you want some examples?
1) My little brother, when he was 7 years old, his favourite game was Mortal Kompat 2. But I don't remember him to carry a knife in order to slash me
2) A friend of my brother, when he was 10 years old, he was playing GTA like a pro. But he's a very kind and non-violent boy, so he wasn't affected by the game.
3) Fighting games is my favourite genre of games, but I hate violence in real life.

When a kid is affected negative by a videogame, the responsibility belongs to the shop that sold this game to the kid. For example, a dad of a friend of my brother (at his 13th year) went to a store to buy a videogame for his son. And the owner gave him...Dino Crisis! And then, this kid was panicked by the game. Do the producers of Capcom have any rensposibility if the shop owner is idiot, when the game is rated 18+ ?

For media, videogames are the easy "targets". When a kid kills his friend, the lowyer of the kid blame a videogame that the kid is supposed that he played before the crime. If you have seen the first movie of Michael Moor, he said: for the reason that a kid before he kills his schoolmates he played bowling, we must damn...bowling! Hohoho!

Btw, have you heard about the blame they gave at Manhunt in United Kingdom when the 17 years old Warren LeBlanc killed his friend?

What is "normal", anyway? If you aren't troubling the rest of the world, then there's no harm in being abnormal.

You're a little slow on the uptake. It is illegal. You ahve to be 18 to by an MA game period. Example. A mother is going to buy her son a game, and at the resgister, he gives her the money. The cashier is not able to accept this purchuse because it is illegally being made by a minor. That parent is currently suing Wal-Mart.

I've been playing games like Wolfenstein and Doom since I was about 8, and I'm not a psycho running around on a murderous rampage. However, that's because I have common sense, and I can't speak for everyone else.

I still say, this is a matter that parents should be in charge of, rather than blaming everyone else for not doing their job.

Personally I don't like Carmageddon, because of its unreasonable violence. Ok, GTA is very violent, but it has perfect gameplay. Mortal Kompat is also very violent, but it has great atmosfere. But Carmageddon is full of disadvantages: horrible graphics, horrible camera, horrible control, stupit sense of humor, and the gameplay after a while is getting boring. In two words, I don't like video games which its only element is violence. Thet are nice only for a while. Then, they're getting boring quickly.

One weird thing that I never managed to understand is why Thrill Kill (an old but good bloody fighting for PSX) has never released to Europe. For your information, this videogame was developed in USA. So, my question is: did this videogame annoyed lots of people there like other games e.x. Doom ?

What is "normal", anyway? If you aren't troubling the rest of the world, then there's no harm in being abnormal.
