Manhunt 2 Banned in UK

Wow.

Games Games and More Games. We are now at the point where Rockstar’s ultra-violent game is being banned from the UK.
What do you do when this happens? We all know why it is being banned, but should it really? Someone, somewhere needs to sponsor psychological testing of a mass scale to find out if playing “Violent” videogames have an adverse effect on those who partake in them.

It’s not even about right or wrong, I believe it’s about common sense.
