    Yep... absolutely ridiculous.
    They don't even play the games when they examine them, they watch a video the developers give them. Shows how out of touch they are. If they aren't prepared or have experience playing computer games where the hell do they get off deciding what the rest of us should be allowed to do.

    Manhunt 2 is probably a crap game. But the quality of game is irrelevant to whether it should be banned or not. Who the hell is the BBFC to decide on what constitutes "a bleakness and callousness of tone". They passed **** like Norbit for public viewing, 99% of people would probably prefer to play Manhunt 2 than Norbit! BUT it's down to the British Board of Film CLASSIFICATION to inform people of the content. NOT to censor. If some retards what to watch Norbit then that's up to them.

    I'm wondering if the examiners been locked up in mental health facilities? I hope so, we wouldn't want them walking the streets! They are clearly going to kill people and rape puppies. Oh wait, I forgot, they have super human intellects and a constitution above that of us proles.
    Their track record with films has been good for the pass few years, they don't ban films anymore and cuts are rare. Hardcore porn can be sold in Borders bargain bins rated 18... so they have it half right. But they seem to be stuck in the 90's in regards to censorship on games.

    Damn, sometimes I really hate conservative idiots obsessed with censorship while usually doing unbelievably nasty things in the secrecy of their own homes. :mad:

    Let's just abolish everything and stick to the survival of the fittest, shall we? :D

    Yup, we're all little children. We shouldn't be allowed to play with toys that could damage our fragile little minds. Don't you see?

    How I long for the day that computergames will be looked upon at the same level as movies and books (they all had their troubled beginnings, but looky now, the most worthless gory tortureporn movies like saw and hostel can be viewed everywhere)

    I didn't realize that people such as Tipper Gore and Hillary Clinton were conservatives. Truth be told many liberals are just as hell bent on censorship with music, movies, games,etc...as any conservative you can name.

    It's all a load of B.S. All this type of stuff. Anyone with half a brain knows it's a damn game, a work of fiction. They ban these things in some half-assed lame attempt to "protect society", so they can say that they "care about your well being." Besides, to ban these games, is a hell of a lot cheaper then say, you know, more/better free mental health clinics or something actually worth doing.

    It is a ****ed up world we live in, this kind of censorship ( and it is censorship basically) is what gets people all fired up and wanting to make signs up and protest. I don't view the US as being a totally free country, that's why I laugh when 4th of July rolls around and all the news have reporters on talking about how we should value our freedom. Where's the freedom when I can't go down the street without a seatbelt on for example. If I wanna go flying out my front windshield and die it would truly be freedom if I was free to not wear my seatbelt,IMHO. Ahh I'm tired I guess but USA is still better place to live than a lot of other countries, at least we don't have some power crazy, dictator... oh never mind :)

    It reminds me when Tipper accused Twisted Sister of BDSM (bondage and sadomasochism) and it was only the senates twisted mind that was forming these accusations. The band and their lyrics had nothing to do with what they were accused of.

    It's like these sick ****s running the government can't control what their minds are thinking. It's scary if you think about it. And because of their inability to think logically they figure their best interest is ours and force their ways on the FREE public.

    It's about damn time for a revolution all over.

    lol, another thread opener who is clueless about "open-minded progressive". I guess being close minded and ignorant is the choice of the day.

    Conservatives are so entrenched in outdated concepts that learning new aspects abut society blows their little minds. Thats why gay rights have stalled because of their unwillingness to accept all that society is made up of.


    Its the censor board you should direct that at and not government. If there is a problem with violence people should target the gun makers, since they produce the weapons used in killings. But the media skirts around the issue and go after the rock and game culture. Jack Thompson anyone? A famous Fox news love child.

    Your point being? Conservatism makes one hell of a lot more sense than the rank idiocy of the contemporary "progressive" movement. Facts and reality mean nothing to "progressives."

    erm. Sureeeeee. I guess moving forward (progressive) is not as good as receding into a shell of ignorance and stupidity (conservative), eh?

    And this thread? Lets illustrate the direction its headed.

    Agreed. More or less.

    Anymore the lines have become so blurred (except when you're talking about hardcore conservatives or progessives, who are just fanatics anyway) that IMO it is just a waste of time to vehemently argue about it.

    And who's fault could that possibly be? :rolleyes:

    Yep everytime blue5 posts his ultralib dribble.

    Arrrg. I guess to be fair, at least this time he didn't blame it on the US or Bush or the republican party but I have no doubt that he will get around to it eventually....:leave:

    Although the UK govt pretends to be left wing, to get poor people to vote for them, they are actually pretty right wing and socially conservative. Gordon Brown keeps talking about how morality is very important in politics, etc.

    Anyway, the manhunt decision is absurd, if an adult wants to play a violent video game, then the state has no place telling him that he can't.
