I'm just wondering, the "Die @$!@" taunt does not get removed when you turn off mature taunts. I can personally live with it, though I don't like how they have thesee taunts in here either. The main problem is that I might get some more... innocent players to get into this game, and I'd prefer not to have to hear this stuff. So, how do you modify the taunts within the INI file, or can it be done?

You'd have a child engage in a method of entertainment that promotes the use of guns and hostility to solve conflicts umong their peers. That killing is is the solution to their problems, and that the only resolution to be perceived is bashing your opponent's skull in with a blunt object, then ripping their intestines out with thier bare hands?

But you don't want them to hear the word "Bitch"?

Tell them to go play Pokemon.

agreed. It's rather funny that such an option exists.

Well, unlike the majority of the population, me and a few others find such things distasteful. It is unfortanate that nearly all movies have to be R rated or lower even with so many curse words in them. You don't need to resort to such things to make a good movie, you can have all the violence and killing you want without such things, even.

Take Halo for instance. That game has plenty of violence in it, without most of the cussing (hey, there's a little, but only in single player). Most people probably think that without such things you can't make a "real" game. You can easily create a more teenager oriented game and still make it playable by users of all ages. I guess game designers don't realize, that by making such games, they would make even MORE money - because not all families will allow their underage kids to play an M game. Though actually, as far as 'M' games go, this is pretty tame. Child, eh? One of them is older than I am. Don't take me for a newbie, because I am far from it.

Bleh, well I am going to close this thing before a flame war breaks out... and it doesn't appear like I am going to get my answer anyways.

[Edit] Ugh, dumb 200 minute limit. Can some administrator or moderator close this for me? Thanks.

Yeah swearwords are bad, and I especially agree about movie ratings (here in UK, "12" has been replaced with "12A" which means ANYONE can go see the film, but if you're below 12 you have to go with an adult), but violence is bad, too you know. If you care about your children being exposed to swearwords, you sould care about them being exposed to violence too.

I have to say that in my experience at any rate, bad language is more harmful to children than violent films/games (up to a point of course, I'm not a complete sociopath/idiot). Like pretty much every person in the world today I've seen films such as the the Alien, Predator and Terminator series(es?) since I was around 8. I've also been playing games since around about then, although I've only been playing properly violent ones since I was about 12. Now I don't believe this has had any particularly negative effect on me- I'm good at controlling my temper and only got into 2 or 3 fights at school (and those were self-defence! seriously!). As pretty much everyone has been exposed to violent films since their childhoods with little visible effect, I'm inclined to believe that kids are simply bright enough to realise that violence isn't the answer. Although of course as with nearly everything else, that isn't 100% always the case. Presumably the same no-effect applies to violent games.

However!! Kids tend to be influenced by how their on-screen heroes talk, and watching people on-screen cussing their mouths out more likely than not would result in a child being pretty nasty to everyone around them. Methinks a kid who happened to see Training Day could well end up being a nasty racist like most of the skinheads you see hanging around Milton Keynes.

Nothin better, Honestly though, guns don't have mouse buttons, and it's hard to find a redeemer at your local hardware store. Violence isn't something to really worry about with this game. But I find it really annoying when I am having a conversation with someone and every other word is a swear word.
