If ratings are your problem, look towards these guys -- they're the ones who play hell with games like that.

EDIT: wait a minute, this thread has nothing to do with video game violence. Scratch that last reply. It should be the parents', and theirs alone, responsiblity to monitor what their kids do. If parents complain about sex, violence, etc. they should quit buying these games for their 10 year old kids. [/color]

No sales person would respectablly sell a 12 year old a 18 rated content- I have to agree. Its the parents/adults faults if the 12 year old finds it for not putting it somewhere 'safe'. They however, won't admit the blame and put it on the game companies. A murderer can't blame his actions on a the gun-maker selling him the gun so why should parents be able to blame their kid seeing the hidden sex video in GTA3 blame it on ROCKSTAR?

it seems all you guys are forgetting one thing...bittorrent. It is incredibly easy for a child (or anyone for that matter) to get hold of games 10x worse than GTA on torrent sites.

Take a look at this article in my Favourite Gaming Magazine, it was done by a small review site on a one term basis partnership: attachment.php?attachmentid=39056&stc=1 Sorry for the small size and baddish quality, I jsut wanted to make it more forum size.

I remember reading that in pc powerplay. I bet a lot of games would get 0/10 from a site called gamemoms. yeltongue.gif

[color=DarkGreen]i think sex in games is fine, as long as it's relevent and correctly age rated. it's parents responsibility to teach their kids about sex and oversee what they play and watch (or even listen too) so no blame can fall on games, except if the game is crap and uses it for no reason. ie FearEffect.

It's not 3D Porn! Wait till game graphics get better or Games become part of Reality (which i believe they will)!

Sex dosen't have to used for tittering and the like. It can be used to further the plot as in some movies [and I'm not talking pr0n, real movies with plots...], it's just waiting for a game to really take advantage of it.
