    Its strange that they already put it in for DVDs but not playstation games. Thats going to piss some kids off. Oh well, reset the memory. Plug it back in. problem solved.

    [​IMG] true, but some parents dont know anything about some of the games and the kids con them into buying them.

    a lot of parents had no idea about Grand Theft Auto and the parts of having sex, untill it was on the news on how bad it really was, and how for the pc version you can download the add ons

    Honestly, I think they need this. Most kids, don't even get the games from their parents. It's so easy now adays for a kid to get it online, from a friend, from an older sibling, from an uncle, from a step dad/mom, not living with them dad/mom, that this is seriously necessary to properly monitor what one's child is doing.

    What's worse is that kids don't even have to try. The kids just tell the parents what they want and the parents come home with it after work. It's disgusting how hands-off modern parents are.

    And a lot of parents had no idea about the "hot coffee" portion BECAUSE IT ISN'T ENABLED IN THE RETAIL VERSION of the game!!! God! People get all up in arms over this shit saying "omg the game company is trying to teach teh kids about sex0rz!!"

    NO. It wasn't activated in the retail version of the game but was left in the game (incomplete) so they wouldn't have to go redo the exe and archive files. I'm sure they did it to meet the advertised release date.

    I realize that most people here understand what I'm getting at. I just have a tendency to rant whenever I hear about people misconstruing the facts or trying to blame the game companies.

    It's in the license agreement people - rockstar isn't responsible for anyone but themselves. If you want to sue someone, sue the 3rd party that released the mod.

    Bah. Video games are harmless. If your little johnny playes grand theft auto, then goes out and steals your car and kills people with it, Little johnny was fucked up in the first place. Good job, parrent!

    I play GTA on and off. I love it, I laugh my ass off, I fight the cops. So fucking what. Its a game.

    And a ground-breaking game at that. Its the first where you can do WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT. Not be led around on a leash doing task after task in a hallway full of monsters.

    Yeah, it has some "adult" scenes, but nothing that you wouldn't see on cable TV. People need to lay off. Would I buy this game for my kids? Hell yeah. Its a good game.

    I wouldn't know where to get it now. A lot of sites that had it took it down after the whole thing blew up.

    EDIT: Looks like it's still available on GamersHell

    Amen brotha. Look at Holland for christ's sake. There are no censorship laws whatsoever: do whatever kinda drugs you want, have all the kinky fetish sex you want with whoever you want. And they have one of the lowest per capita violent crime rates in the world, as well as lowest teen pregnancy rates in the world.

    Excessive legislation leads to excessive prison populations, and nothing good comes of that.
