Okay, I had nothing against rockstar and thought all that 'soccer moms' protests against computer games was 100% bullshit till I stumbled across this - http://www.rockstargames.com/bully/ there better be some unique gameplay excuse for this, don't get me wrong, I don't give a crap about kids getting bullied but still. And besides it's just lame, be nice if developers gave us all games from good ideas instead.
And dont move this to gaming, it's about rockstar and computers games taking p*ss, not a computer game.
:lol: this should be fun to play... But there always will be some crapheads taking into the "real" world.
yeah that game looks pretty fun. Now just watch when it comes out, within a week. "OMG MY SON PLAYED THIS GAME AND NOW HE'S BULLYING EVERYONE I'M SUEING YOU ROCKSTAR GAMES"
They should state that the can't be sued for such b/s... (Or do they do that already?? I don't read that sort of stuff :p)

yeah they do, but there's always flaws and excuses around it though.

Looks fun, Rockstar can't be blamed if some mentaly unstable kid takes it out of games into the real world.
All this crap about Games destroying youth is a bunch of crap from people to lazy to be parents
If you can't Keep an eye on your children, Be friends with them, as opposed to enymies, it is your own problem, not some video games.
I bet the people that say it looks fun are the people who used to get bullid themselves :lol: trying to lie to themselves/others and of course the simple psychology of getting back. and what are you gusy on about, some kids, mentally derranged kids, most kids you mean, have you forgotten when you were at school, i used to be standing around with friends in the playground and they would frequently, admitedly or obviously copy stuff on the thiner, more nerdy kids from the latest game they were playing. infact all the schools i've been to same. I didn't care about that, in my opinion bullying is a healthy thing alot of the time, for all, just something like this is going to be more than influencing it, its direct inspiration, and i'm sure it will make a good number of kids who dont need any shit and are normal enough for society, completely miserable.

Killing hookers and dealing dope is nothing compared to this! This is an outrage, a travesty, and its proof of the social upheaval of our morals and values! Do I care about the premise of this game? No. Will I buy this game? Probably not. Will people buy this game? Probably. Will this game result in an outbreak of bullies? I highly doubt it. Has Rockstar made a profit? Yes. Capitalism? Yes. Our system in action.
