I wouldn't have the player kill or abuse children.

I think the latest Tomb Raider game almost crossed a line for me, personally. There is one scene where Lara is held down and repeatedly punched in the face by large men. She ends up with a bloody face. It just makes me feel sad to see scenes like that. Regardless of weather it's a man or a women.

Liam, don't watch Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction... or any Quentin Tarantino movie for that matter.

It seemed to me that the purpose of Tomb Raider was to abuse the main character as much as possible.

Just to clarify, I think that sort of content is fine. I just choose to stay away from it. I've seen Pulp Fiction, I loved it. I think. It's been too many years since I've seen it now... I've a bad memory.

I don't think anything should be censored completely. There should definitely be some age limits, but you shouldn't be able to ban any form of art based on it's contents. That is, you can't rape children and take pictures of it and claim it's art for example, but if a work is a product of the mind only, I think it only should be restricted to older audiences. (That being said, I wouldn't like or really approve of anyone creating a child-raping simulator or really anything related, it was just to put an example on the edge.)

PS: I watched pulp fiction today

Honestly, this question jumped out at me the most. The truth is, I was giving an inch when I said mayhem triple should have a warning, as I think it shouldn't exist at all. It just urks me that violent games such as itself get more attention cause violence is "cool". Why don't people like to be innocent and make innocent games with cute characters and storyline? I know I sure do!

That's all I can really say. Although if warnings are the route to go, I am undecided in how they should be carried out, because there probably isn't any way of doing it that will truly keep kids away from it for sure. Best thing to do is not make games that send terrible moral messages.



Mayhem Triple didn't get coverage because it's violent, it got coverage because it's a HUGE effort with years in development.

I have to say that I find your answer to this question disturbing. There are countless things that are violent; books (especially religious texts), documentaries, nature, people. To pretend that this doesn't exist and to deny the right for it to be made; you're looking at massive repression something that can and usually will end very badly. Granted, we all have our tastes. I feel that an important part of any reasonable person it to be able to identify reality from fiction, and deal with situations presented to you. If your response is to avoid these situations, so be it; but don't let your actions decide for everyone else.

After reading about a 13 year old slashing another kid's throat after playing Gears of War 3, and the Scottish police reaction to it, I have to say:

I'm sorry but if your kid slashes another kid's throat then there's something fundamentally wrong with him, regardless of whether he played violent video games or not.

I agree completely. It's personal anger issues. Another human being enraged him, causing him to flip out. It's no different to riots at football matches.

I was playing some old klik games (Fallen Angel, type stuff)
And I remembered that back in the day they basically HAD to be offensive
such were the teenage fashions of the time

(HOLY SHIT DOES ANYONE REMEMBER WRATH OF THE SEA KING? that wasn't offensive, but it sure was amazing)
