    i would challenge the word. if it isn't in the dictionary, not urban dictionary, it doesn't count.

    Yes because all parents always have time or a desire to check out every single game for things they don't want their children around, even though the game is aimed at, and rated for children to play. Junior settings my ass, you don't market a game at children and then put words like that in the dictionary.

    Waa. wa wa.. waaaa.

    Hey, lets ban television, movies, and the internet. Because the word "fucker" is out there and readily available for viewing by children. Oh hell, there goes hondaswap, too.

    People need to grow up and stop being such pussies about this kind of stuff.

    Ok, when your 7 year old walks up and says "what does fuck mean?" Tell me you won't get mad.

    But why include it on a game designed for an aimed directly at children? Yeah, they'll learn it eventually, but why start them out so early? There is no need for a 7 year old to learn that word much like there is no need for a 15 year old to be renting pornographic movies.

    I can see this story from both sides, on one side over-censorship creates sheltered naive children (you should meet my buddies wife... she definitely doesn't know of or understand the outside world in the slightest), on the other hand a lack there of may or may not create problems for society when these kids grow up to be bullies or habitual law breakers.

    In the end, IMO, censoring things for children and creating ratings based on content per age will do them more good than harm.

    My three year old has told Mrs. Phyre.. "You're fucking fired mom!!".

    I laughed my ass off.

    So yeah, get over it. Its not the end of the world.

    There's a difference between a 3 year old and a 7 year old. A three year old doesn't know any better, a 7 year old should. Unless parents of said 7 year old suck at parenting.
