Dont you guys see how policies such as this are influencing what kind of games are developed. Seems pretty obvious to me. Like already said, we wont get the real Manhunt2 now, but some toned down crap instead. Doesnt it bother anyone else?
The market takes care of its own.
If a company censors shit to the point of quashing certain types of media, fuck 'em, it's their platform, let the consumers decide.
Yes, the consumers are stupid, but the fact that such a thing as a PC (an open platform, still) exists means a company can always develop for alternative platforms. It's not a question of "cultural welfare", games are for profit (and FH has proven that not-for-profit comes up with some pretty cool stuff as well.)
