Down the rabbit hole: Rabbit hole



(wut I don't even know)
If your child is a gamer, you have inevitably at least heard of the GTA franchise. There has been a huge amount of backlash about the new sex scenes in GTA V, which isn't that surprising. But honestly, do people really have the right to complain? GTA V is a rated M game, meaning that to purchase through any legal retailer, you MUST have an adult with you. So stop claiming that little jimmy went out and bought it himself. We all know he didn't.

“if you’re a parent and buy one of our games for your child, you’re a terrible parent. We design games for adults because we’re adults.” Lazlow jones, Writer and Producer for Rock* (Makers of the GTA franchise.)

Complaining about how there's explicit sex in a videogame is only as, if not less effective than complaining about porn on the internet. In that instance your only real arguing point is that porn is often free, and thus pretty much anyone can access it despite "age restrictions." No. Parents who buy their 9 year old kid GTA V, then walk in during a sex scene and start whining on the internet about how GTA V is poisoning the minds of children, they are the problem. If you don't want your kid watching porn then fine. But buying them GTA V and then complaining about this is the equivilant of giving your child a URL to an adult site, then complaining that they're using it. Honestly, I've been to gamestop several times, I've purchased mature rated games several times, and the casheir always asks me, "well you do understand that this game contains mature content in the form of drug abuse, sexual contant, etc etc. Not only is there a giant mature rating ON THE FRONT OF THE DAMN BOX, BUT THEY EXPLICITLY TELL YOU WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. IT'S NO SECRET PEOPLE. WAKE THE HELL UP. Dont complain and ruin the fun for those of us who actually know what we're buying, and know what we're getting into.

Am I the only one noticing that it seems to be promoting sales, as opposed to just sharing more than it used to? Just look at the placement of the "SHOP" button. This is the only real problem I have with it. Other than that it'' just take some getting used to.
