    It's just a video game.

    >"Games have always had strict rules, just look at chess," he says. "So why can't video games follow similar rules?"
    Because they wouldn't be fun.

    Because breaking the law in a video game must mean you are breaking the law.

    I've been playing a lot of NSMB lately, and I feel like getting high on shrooms and stomping on turtles.

    I was playing portal and discovered how to make a portal gun in real life.

    I was playing Tetris, but when I tried to stack the stuff in my closet into rows, it was still there.

    I was playing Super Smash Bros. Melee and now I know how to Falcon Punch people in the face. Oh, and also how to say Yes.

    I was playing Postal 2 and now I'm about to go outside, piss on somebody, then proceed to set them on fire.

    To paraphrase, I was playing Pac-Man and now I spend my time in darkened rooms, popping pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.

    I was playing Project Witch and Idolmaster and enjoying the art of dressing up young girls with suggestive and fetishy outfits. [​IMG]

    ^ Any other posts can get creepier than this. /Thread



    So, videogames shouldn't be violent but movies/tv are allowed to be way more violent while they have no age restrictions?

    If childs are playing violent games is parents fault.

    Also media needs to chill, There's no reason to act like that for a game with fictional violence, while everybody can read extremely gore stuff in a newspaper which actually happened.

    I know some games like "Manhunt 2" Just abused violence in lots of nonsensical ways, But seriously "Virtual human rights"? [​IMG]

    I was playing CODMW2 and went to my local airport, proceeding to mindlessly shoot down innocent civilians with an automatic weapon.

    I was playing grandia 3 and the first thing i did was took a sword and went outside and trying to do an air launch on random passer-by, suffice to say, my attacks were cancelled.

    It is now proven that playing Cooking Mama kills your brain cells.
    But seriously, I was playing Kingdom Hearts the other day, and now I feel like bashing random fantasy creatures with my house key.
