    That's a lot of words but again I don't really have to respond to any of it because I was responding to the assertion that the petition has some merit. Go back and read the petition and note how it...

    That's not really a direct comparison because people might turn out different because of the experience with their parents (e.g. "I don't ever want to be like my parents.") The assertion that's...

    I didn't suggest that not looking up articles was a terrible attitude (I actually said something to the contrary) but claiming it's 'self evident' is ridiculous. The fact is that we're not drenched...

    Sorry, but that's a terrible and ignorant attitude to have. Not so much that you "can't be arsed" to look, but presenting an opinion as 'self evident' without so much as a shred of evidence to back...

    Not explicitly but they do use terms like 'encourage', 'spreads the idea', 'tolerate' and 'fuelling the epidemic' which does require it to be linked to the violent behaviour in question. While we...

    Except it isn't, because the actual petition specifically mentions violence against women, in particular prostitutes. In fact, the word "gender" let alone the term "gender roles" appears nowhere in...

    You are of course correct, but the issue is less that Target in particular (and now K-Mart) aren't selling the game, but rather that they've bowed to an angry petition that makes generalised...

    To provide a bit of background - we recently introduced an R18+ restriction specifically to avoid this - GTA V carries this rating. Prior to this, the highest was MA15+ which meant it was content...

    The point I'm making with X is that it's large and dynamic and doesn't rely on a sever connection to accomplish that. This is another SimCity argument.

    As for those other games - Eve is probably...

    Heh, wow, I just knew people would be ranting over this.

    Elite-style games have managed to have offline play for friggin' ages, there's no technical limitation for why this can't be done. Hell...

    All of this suggests that 'be excellent' has failed if so many people think it's wrong and yet the people in charge never saw it as an issue. Excellence is nothing these days.

    My point was that 'being excellent' has become such a nebulous and arbitrarily enforced term that there's no way of defining what it actually means any more. We can try to attribute meaning to it but...
