Manhunt 2 Banned in UK
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.
As much as I want to say that the probably don’t have that sort of effect, I want proof. I am in the camp that they don’t have any more effect than watching a movie or reading a book and should be treated as such. In the 70’s we had psycho’s saying, “The Dog made me do it” Did we go ban dogs?
It’s not even about right or wrong, I believe it’s about common sense.
