Have you been under a rock?

This is not the first game that you can kill cops in.

Just think of them as "Bad Cops", you know, like all the other media that cops get killed in.

Guess this guy never played grand theft auto, or hitman, or any of the other 1,000 GAMES out there.

It's a fucking game. Just like rock and roll isn't going to turn you into a devil worshipper a fucking video game is not going to turn you into a cop killer. What a maroon.

But, but, you can shoot dogs too once you get to level three!!
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 4:41:12 PM EDT
As many video games I have spent hours and hours shooting and blowing things up while playing, I have never actually repeated those actions on "real" things. Just a lot of paper and clay....that being said, if they made a game about killing people in my line of work I would be pissed too. That is the issue, when a certain "group" etc...is used as targets they get nervous about it. Just my .02

<other mindless bullshit snipped>



What makes me sick is the fact you call yourself a gun owner and yet demonize a video game, much like anti-gunners demonize guns. Nice hypocrisy.

+1

because games about killig regular people are OK

Tipper,is that you ?
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 7:31:07 PM EDT
because we all know that killing a cop is worse than killing a regular person as cops are special and are all heroes and are better humans than the rest of us, etc etc, so it is okay to blow the fuck out of soldiers, civilians, and babies on video games, but not cops.

A is yuo.

On the topic of violent video games I've never played 25 to life, and probably wont, but I really like GTA: San Andreas.

I loved how when I first started playing the game, and I got my first gun, when my character stopped running around for a minute he said "Its my Constitutional right, bitch."

I also like how sometimes when you try to jack random civillians (not talking about the gang members) sometimes they actually pull out thier own handgun and try to stop you. Obviously they arent too effective, but I like that they put that in the game.

This game is controversial. I MUST HAVE THIS GAME.

What harm does this game do? Videogames aren't a kids thing anymore. The majority of gamers today are 18-35.

Does porn make you go out and rape women?
Do guns make you shoot people?
Do games make you go out and kill cops?

The developer and publisher are making assloads of money just off the controversy. Keep the controversy going, that way more people will hear about it and then go kill cops.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 9:07:00 PM EDT
I might just buy a couple of copies to help support the developers.

Don't like it, don't play it.

Guess you never played cops and robbers.

He did, but the 'robbers' required therapy afterwards so they would know it's not right to try to shoot at the police

Did anyone else read through the guestbook?
Very few are able to piece together a coherent thought.

My guess is they don't understand the concept of personal responsibility. Gota blame it on someone/thing else. I'd bet they're the same type that send the kids off to another room to get them out of the way.

Can't be bothered to take the time to teach their children right from wrong, and refuse to take the blame for it.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 10:51:10 PM EDT
Why would it matter if they are cops or garbage collectors?



Who gives a shit about this?

...anyone? Has someones feelings been hurt over this? Are all of the sensitive cops going to get their panties in a wad? Jesus!!!!

It's not like it brainwashes people to kill cops....Pussies

I guess they should demand a public apology from the people who are making this game..LMAO!! That's the "adult" thing to do...cry for an apology.

I played JFK: reloaded. It was much easier to shoot kennedy when the car was coming straight on.

Come on people, this is just a game. I've been playing warped games all my life and it doesn't make me kill people.

From that page;

movies, TV, and video games are not just conditioning children to be violent--and unaware of the consequences of that violence--but are teaching the very mechanics of killing.


That's the steamiest pile of horse shit I've read in a few days.

The media that people are exposed to is not the root of the problem. It's parents specificly for not taking enough interest in their childs life to begin with to know what they are purchasing, or what they are doing with their free time. And it's societies in general who, along with the parents, have been saying over and over, since what? the early seventies?, that a person commiting violent acts is not responsible for his own behavior.

They, along with people like you, who push this garbage at our parents, giving them the excuse they so desperately need that they aren't failures. "My Johnny isn't capable of this... it must have been the video games".

I agree that the game should probably not be played by young children. But the decision and the policing should be left to the parents.

The game is rated "Mature". This is a voluntary rating that is placed on the title to warn parents that it isn't recomended for children under 17.

If you would take 3 minutes to do a little research, you would know this... but like so many parents today, you can't be bothered to educate yourself, let alone your children.
