    As if Kids today we'rent already weak and stupid enough

    Rockstar is to release the game "Bully", showing kids exactly how to be stupid little gangsta thugs.



    http://ps2.ign.com/articles/616/616925p1.html

    Let's face it, this is a bad idea all over, we all know how stupid teens are today, the media is what they look up to for advice on how to behave, and the media gives them crap like this.

    I'll be getting out the country as soon as possible thanks, looks like both the UK and US are watching their society destroy themselves, with a smile on their face it seems

    To be honest with you mate, if people take that kind of thing literally, they are stupid anyway. Anyone who can be influenced by something like that is an idiot. I've been playing 'violent' games for years and I've never had any urdge to kill people ( well not many ) or smash up cars etc.

    We should just bring back the death penalty for un-provoked/planned crimes, atleast all the chavs would be dealt with then

    So true. How bad are the likes of GTA etc but I'd never be stupid enough to do anything in the game in RL! And Postal 2, remember that one? I played it for quite a bit, but did I ever run up to stranger, unzip my flies and urinate one them? No.

    Remember Carmageddon and how it was made for the fun that is to be had from running over little old ladies?

    Of course, for the sequels they had to go one better and so started putting in controversial content for the sake of it...

    Which is what Rockstar look like they're doing here, what's next? Abuse the foreign chap? Actually, if they were French, that'd be ok...

    I must admit, it don't like the idea. But GTA, and any other violent games (most of them i guess) are just as likely to cause problems, if indeed they do. Where do you draw the line?

    Persoanlly I think games and films DO influence kids. I remember when I was young, me and my brother would fight like crazy after seeing a kung fu movie. Thats what kids do.

    But the problem is not what people want to do, it's a simple lack of repect for others that seems to be an ever increasing problem for society. That's not down to games/movies, it's much deeper rooted. If it was that simple, we would not have half the problems we have now.

    We need to stop trying to find scapegoats and address the issues properly. I think we need to stop being so wet in this country and take a much harder line with the thugs that rule some of our streets. If no one can agree on the causes, we should at least make anti-social behaviour much less of an apealing prostect with thougher punishments because nothing else seems to be working. Blaming games/movies/TV/Badgers/whatever is not going to solve a thing and the whole argument just futher distracts from the real problem.

    Sorry, just my 10 pence. I'm getting sooooo sick of the way this country is going.

    The sad thing is that the Daily Mail is going to have a field day with this and further tarnish gaming with thier ignorance.

    Oh here we gooooooo again.

    Can the Mary Whitehouse brigade please get a new record for when they blame this game for incidents in the future. The one about all these games being an infulence and made people do it is a load of tripe to be honest. I play CS and a load more FPS games all the time and have done since the age of 11. Did this drive me to getting a rifle and picking off people left right and centre ?

    Nope.... I have no appeal to shoot people from the rooftop with a high velocity sniper rifle *twitch*

    Games are supposed to be a bit of light-hearted fun, not to be taken serious and in some cases they can be educational

    Time for the gamer-haters to back off, get a grip and join reality instead of blaming something they don't understand for problems caused

    I know what i'm talking about, it's not the games fault but unfortunately thats the only thing we may have a chance of controlling.

    I know its the fault that people are allowed to be stupid in the first place that is the problem. I like GTA, a lot, but i'm smart enough to control how it influences me.

    Since we have stupid stupid people in society, and we can't just shoot them dead on the spot, guess we have to do something. Or like my first post says, just watch and smile as they continue to make our lives miserable.

    I don't think banning violent games will make any difference at all in today's society. In fact, it'll probably make it worse if they do. If someone told me I couldn't play WoW coz it was violent they'd get a sharpened axe embedded into their skull.

    Damn... It's controlling me!

    Violence in games has been around for ages, i'm talking about the way the newer games relate violence closely to real life situations. And in a sense promoting it. I thought GTA was bad enough for stupid people, but I can see kids making a clear connection with this Bully game, obviously. It just stops being fantasy and becoming "A guide to life".

    yeah....this isnt going anywhere anyway

    lets face it, its going to be an 18, if any kid gets his/her hands on it the parents are to blame. i have a cousin whos 12 and hes got so many 18 games its untrue, and he has no respect at all (which makes me sick)

    ahh well, in the true spirit of kama he dropped a pen-knife into his foot and is currently sporting a mullet

    I think Dangerous_Dom (ironic name) has hit the nail on the head. The thugs behave the way they do because no-one is going to make them do otherwise. Human rights acts and lack of policing have a lot to answer for. Then again it's us who insist on electing a government who are against family life and discipline for our children.

    Pacman doesn't relate to real-life, everyone can stop repeating this worthless point that i have already answered to.

    I dont have a problem with fantasy violence. But when it relates so closely to real-life to the point that it becomes almost documentary, especially the school yard, what kid is not going to buy this.
