Hey dudes, don't know if you've heard about this yet, but in the UK there's a massive outcry against Manhunt. A 17 year old killed his best friend with a claw hammer, but was obsessed with the game. PC World, Dixons and Currys are to withdraw the game immediately from their shelves, and Woolworths could yet follow... so if you want a copy of the game (PAL), now is probably the best time to get it before it gets banned

haha, ironic when stuff like this happens, it just creates massive amounts of interest in the game and MORE people play it. i agree it's a load of balls. this is the kind of stupid nannying censorship we could do without. it's not rockstar's problem if stupid kids play their games, it's the retailer's and the parent's fault.

Manhunt sucks, as do GTA3 and Vice City. But it's still ridiculous to stop selling them.

I'm not a fan of so-called "mature games" you're obviously not mature if you're scared to be seen playing Zelda.

what? Im not reading this correctly. Manhunt AND GTA 3 sucks? Manhunt can be a bit boring from time to time, but it has a great story line. And GTA 3 vice city is probably the best game ever - aside from HL and MGS.

Can't these fucking tabloids blame the kids themselves instead of reaching to find some unfitting scapegoat? It's like Child's Play 3 all over again.

No, but I'm saying Chucky told those kids to kill James Bulger. Have you never seen Child's Play 3, Chucky clearly says on it "Youngsters everywhere, kidnap a child then torture kill him," it wasn't anything to do with the media finding a scapgoat, honest. Our darling young kids don't just kill people without a reason, just like they don't nick cars and vandilise property, young people would never do that without having their fragile little brains corrupted by evil things such as 18-rated video games and movies.

(For the slow ones, this whole post is sarcastic by the way.)

this was on the frontpage of the Daily Mail today, it's so annoying: "BAN THESE EVIL GAMES". they had a list of games and bullshit descriptions of them - Hitman, GTA, Manhunter (of course), some others, and Doom 3. this one amused me because Doom 3 isn't even out yet. also it involves killing aliens on mars, yeah, i'm sure that'll make loads of kids go out and shoot martians. how about, instead of "BAN THESE EVIL GAMES", we have "BAN THESE EVIL KIDS". any kid who is commits some attrocity is not only named and shamed, but locked up for life and the key thrown away. it pisses me off that the bulger killers are out and living off taxpayer money. it pisses me off that columbine was blamed on Doom. it pisses me off that manhunter is being slagged off just because some psychotic kid goes hammer mad on some other kid. it's all bullshit, and it's bullshit that's going to potentially stop good games like Grand Theft Auto being sold in the future. trevor's absoloutly right, we have to blame the kids, and not the games. kids shouldn't even be playing these games anyway. they all have 18 ratings - and ultimately it falls at the feet of the parents to supervise their kids, not the retailers selling the games to underage kids.

i've been waiting to rant about that since i saw the paper this afternoon

James Bulger was a toddler who was kindapped by these two evil little fuckers and tortured until he died, then they put his body on a railway track to make it look like an accident. One of the boy's dad had rented Child's Play 3, so obviously, the media being so niave, chose to blame the killings on that, because it's a scientifically proven fact that kids can't be evil. Like Hitler was probably a very nice child, but soon as he turned 18, he suddendly thought "Genocide, that sounds like a good idea..."

I own the game. I hate it.
LOL @ the thought of you closing your curtains and turning the lights off to play a computer game.


PS - I respect your opinion, bla bla, etc...

It's best to think of Manhunt as less of a game, and more as just entertainment.
Sure, it's not got brilliant gameplay, but the fun factor is cool. Breaking people's heads with a baseball bat of hacking their heads off with machetes makes me feel happy. I'm talking about in game by the way, I'm 21, the game can't corrupt my strong, adult mind.

I'm not suprised. Here in Sweden they banned Darkwing Duck from TV. Reason? Too violent...

all that 'evil games and movies telling kids to do things' is bull. i mean, if it worked with that, it should've worked with the episode in barney where they tell you not to let the water run while you brush your teeth. i don't think one kid on earth listened to that, except those kids on the show. hell, if i had a huge, purple t. rex asking me to brush my teeth, i'd brush the damn things twice.

Violent computer games are used as a scape goat once again. It annoys me when the headlines do this; they don't understand computer games and they assume all games are for children.
