    The British Board of Film Classification has banned the sale of Manhunt 2, which was scheduled to come out next month for the Wii, PS2 and PSP. As you might expect, the ratings board cited the game’s encouragement of “visceral killing with exceptionally little alleviation or distancing…. There is sustained and cumulative casual sadism in the way in which these killings are committed, and encouraged, in the game.” So because the game “encourages” wanton violence, it’s banned, censored, never to set foot on British soil.
    Do you think this is right? This game might encourage violence, but how many films have been released with much worse things goin on in it, Saw is a good example.

    I dont really intend on buying it, I just wanted your opinion on the subject, I know this is only happening in the UK. But I'm sure some protestors will be wantin it out of the USA soon enough, and the rest of Europe.

    That angers me more than the fact that it's banned in the U.K.

    Games are just games. Games encourage gaming...
    Movies, Games, Music. There is a difference between those things and reality.

    As for the game being banned. You're at the whim of the Queen... My only advise would be to get used to it I guess.

    Honestly, I think it's wrong to ban media of any type. As Pirate said, there is a difference between video games and reality. For example, the one case in the news where that one kid killed a cop and the parents blamed it on Grand Theft Auto. I'm sorry, but I've played pretty much all of the violent games available on the market, and I've never been tempted to do anything like that, so I think that kid had a couple of screws loose to begin with.

    scuse the french here, but FUCK anyone who blames games for anything, if you do that YOU need to get shot. I mean all i ever heard when i was a kid was take responsibility for your own actions, like everyday. This shit isnt a way to make some quick buck suing someone, and it sure in the hell isnt a scapegoat for parents, its your own fuckin fault your kids a goddamn nut, not the video games, lets say its the twighlight zone just for one loopy second, and satan in the game DID said"kill kill kill" . Gee i wonder who bought it for him,COMON!!!! If only i was a judge or whatever. AM I RIGHT OR AM I FUCKIN RIGHT?

    thats some well deserved venting BTW pphhh...video games did it, my ass.

    The name of the game is Manhunt, and thats exactly what it is...A GAME. It isnt going to be warping peoples minds anytime soon just looking at the cover. And thats what you do b4 you buy it. if ya dont want yourself or your children to be subjected to this type of gaming dont buy it. And theres no way you can put the blame on ther game, its ur own damn fault if your buying games without looking to see what they are. And btw its the same exact enjoyment non-warped kids all over the country got from twisted metal for ps1, and ditto for freakin Return to teletubbie land. There ALL GAMES. Its the same as epilepsy....if a video game will give you seizers DONT PLAY IT AND DONT BLAME THE GAME, CUZ ITS YOUR FAULT FOR KNOWING ITS NOT GOOD FOR YOU.

    let me repeat that for parents,chidren and people who are psychologically easy to manipulate

    If it has the potential to harm youONT PLAY IT AND DONT BLAME THE GAME, CUZ ITS YOUR FAULT FOR KNOWING ITS NOT GOOD FOR YOU.
