The whole ID thing with movies is actually a rule passed by the MPAA, which is a private corporation that doesn't directly report to the government, but I see what you mean and whole-heartedly agree.23Magnum said:This is quoted from that site.
"There is no government mandate to show ID when seeing or buying an R-rated movie, and there is no reason to hold video games to higher scrutiny."
Bull crap!!! Why then do I, AGE 25, get carded going into movie theaters to see an R rated movie? Once in a while, they even card me when buying an R rated movie or M rated game. Problem is not the system but those that cheat that system. Technically, most of the people on this site shouldn't even be able to play HALO let alone buy it, but how you might ask does this still occur? Well, cause parents with no will power or plain just don't see anything wrong with it buy the games for their underage kids. I'll give you that Halo is not one of the worst games as far as blood and gore go, but violence is abundant. This system works and I'm living proof, but a system only works when you follow the rules.
Sorry for the rant, but that's just how I feel.
WE PLAY HALO!Ragnarok118 said:actually cause of media today. kids are SO desensitized to violence, sex, drugs that it makes me sick
i love youabandonship said:What people dont realize is that it isnt the video game that causes people to go psycho, its their own damn stupidity. People just pick on video games because it is a new industry and is an easy target/scapegoat. i guarantee that 90 percent of the US' problems would be solved it parents these days werent such pussies when it comes to discipline, and all these crimes blamed on video games have nothing to do with video games at all.
