I'll start off with posting the link to the news source and then give my take. via Joystiq I know nintendo and sony have the right to not allow third parties to release games they don't deem fit for their consoles but I'm really getting sick of not having the chance to play what I want to play. Hell I'm not even a fan of manhunt but this is just going too far. I really hate to see other people decide what is going to be offensive for me as an adult. I 100% agree that the ESRB is for parents and kids and I think it does a good enough job but that is where parents need to come in and not allow their kids to play games that aren't rated for them. If I want to play an "obscene game" as a 26 year old I should be able to. But I don't even get the chance. Release a version that is AO and one that is M or whatever but give me the chance to play what the developers decided to put in the game. We may never have that chance and I'm sick of it. What is so hard about carding people who buy games with m or ao ratings? What is so hard about parents just checking to see what their kids are playing or researching what games are out there and what to look for? What is so hard about spending a little time with our kids and teaching them the difference between right and wrong? Organizations and governments should not be the ones policing what I see and play, and they should not be the ones teaching my kids morals and ethics. I'm sick and tired of it.
