View Full Version : stupidity hits an all time low
are these people so desperate that they have to go after rockstar because of what the mod community does? It boggles the mind how all the people who try to sue games also know absolutely nothing about them.
A couple really stupid facts:
1. In order to unlock the "explicit pornography" the person has to go online in order to download a mod for the game.
2. Wait, they have access to the internet? Apparently the clothed characters in San Andreas are what parents should be worrying about, not the billions of porn sites kids could go to instead.
I love it when dumb people have no clue about what they're talking about, yet still manage to get attention from the media. It's always a pity they're not more on top of things, but hey, they need their ratings, right?
Anyway, this is absurd considering Rockstar had nothing to do with it. They're acting like they put the naked people there and don't seem to get that this was outside people who made the mod.
Freaking crazy soccer moms.

I absolutely agree .... but most internet porn sites arent interactive....lol a little nudity in GTA is nothing ,they say F**K in that game and the N word in that game so damn much. porno is nothing especially 3 dimensional porn

The best kind of news for the media is negative news.
Ratings in video games these days don't mean jack anymore. One way or another a 12- year- old is going to get their hands on a game like Grand Theft Auto.
There is a reason why there are so many stupid people. It is because we are wasting time and money on this kind of ridiculous crap when there are far more important things like actually improving education.
I bet Rockstar plans on including soccer moms in their next grand theft auto game. :unibrow:

I just got Killer 7 for GameCube(Personally, I love it).
Sexual content? I still have yet to see where that comes into play.
Foul language? Yes. (mostly stuff like "your ****ed!")
Freaky? Yes. (heads and ghosts that talk and monsters that make cool laugh sounds)
Violence, sexual content and foul language done in style you soccer mom hussies!

They are still blaming video games for school shootings. They were talking about a court case going on right now for a school shooting in '03 and the news mentioned that he played video games where you shoot people in the head.

Heh, I play video games where I shoot people in the head.
Maybe I should go on a shooting spree and blame the bible.

People complaining about video game violence?! What?! Is this some kind of bizarro world we live in? Wait. No, it's not. I've never even batted an eye at incidents like this since I saw the website by a bunch of mothers asking to change the name of the two towers movie before it was put out, because it would remind people of 9/11. THAT is called bitching.

I saw a segment about it on the news, and it was hilarious.
They're freaking out over this TINY portion of the game (that Rockstar may or may not have even had anything to do with) when the ENTIRE game is nothing but blowing shit up and killing people for no good reason. I guess they were concerned because they thought they were buying their children a game where they could go around murdering pedestrians, stealing cars, running a gang, and shooting anything that moves, they didn't realize that anyone would be having sex in the game!
Besides, the game is rated Mature, which is already adults only, considering you have to be 18 or older to purchase it yourself.
Anyway, this is absurd considering Rockstar had nothing to do with it. They're acting like they put the naked people there and don't seem to get that this was outside people who made the mod.Rockstar had a lot to do with it. They made the minigame, but decided not to put it into the final game. Yet they still left the data on the disks.
While I agree that it's stupid to think content that needs to be hacked to get at should effect the rating of a game, saying Rockstar is completely blameless isn't really accurate at all.

Rockstar is blameless. If you look up the mod maker, and even read his words, he says that it was something rockstar scrapped, and he had to really dig for it. People contribute ideas like this to games all the time, and they get cut. This just happens to be one with a little more effect to it. Whether the models are in the game or not, you still have to mod it to get to the minigame...and a mod is a mod. Once you mod it, you're no longer in rockstar's liability.
And law is black and white.
I wasn't talking about the law. I don't really care about the law. What I'm talking about is Rockstar deserves just as much blame, if not more, than the hacker for giving the crazy anti-video game people ammunition for their little crusade. And it's not just the models that Rockstar created. They created the whole minigame, but simply deactivated it in the actual game. The hacker just discovered the switch to reactivate it. It's like the equivalent of the debug modes you could get in old games with Game Genie/Game Shark.

You maybe don't know this yet, but in all games there's a lot of hidden content that you'll never see. Goldeneye for the N64 had 2 entire hiddden levels in the game data that you can't play, (one is across the lake on the dam level btw) they weren't finished either. Usually game studios don't clean up the game data because it costs too much time anyway, and they might break something else. In many games there's hidden stuff. Heck, even in Ut2004 there's a toilet car you have to unlock by entering the game editor and look up the dir of it, and then activating it in the console. I'd say that even the best known games out there have hidden content the public will never see.
You can't hold them responsible if the content isn't accessible by what would be considered fairly regular use. It's not presented as part of the game, nowhere in the game you can unlock it, and they haven't made it public, you can't hold them responsible. In fact they probably thought it was a little too much so they deactivated it. If people now blame them for considering game content in the first place, you will be imposing rules on thoughts and concepts, which is impossible to control, and thus by blaming them, it would be discrimination because they don't get equal treatment as othe rgame companies.
