That, my friend, is the tough question but it's the only worthwhile one.
Education is a lifelong process that doesn't only include little children. Different ages need different education...
Sorry but no, what you are describing is behavioral conditioning and that is not education. Sure you can keep people in line by shaming them or through a simplistic reward/punishment system, but...
In light of the PEGIDA movement gaining traction in Germany (of all places) due to "concerned citizens", I've grown weary of these kinds of worry. What if you're, for whatever reason, on the...
I'm really glad you realized that, because that's what I've been saying all along. Please tell that to the people who are actively campaigning against certain video games for no other reason than...

I unlocked all the post-its in normal mode, except for the super secret character. Thought I would get an achievement for that, but no...
There are still a few challenges to complete and hard...
No Geebs is perfectly right, in the context of a debate, saying something is "problematical" is an analytic statement. The reason why something is problematical is worthy of discussion because that...
Disagreeing yes, but wishing something wouldn't exist implies that other people should not enjoy it. That's the meaning of wanting something not to exist.
We've all seen to where it leads, Jack...
It's interesting though, because despite the tame, non-offensive content, I'd consider WOW and the likes a much more tangible problem than GTA with all its prostitutes and pixel people killing.
What responsibility do they have?
They are producers of an entertainment product that is easily avoidable. You make it sound like they are responsible for the decline of civilization.
Maybe censorship is the wrong word being applied here, maybe tabooization would be a better term to describe the problem.
I don't feel comfortable with an art form or media where taboos can...
Hieronymus Bosch says hello.
Don't be silly, nobody is saying that the game is "art", not every game needs to be "art". Besides art always had a morbid interest in the aesthetics of violence, it's...
How can Valve be consistent if their customers aren't? In one case a game becomes hyped up as the most evil thing ever while a multitude of similar products are simply ignored and sometimes even...

I know Twilight was bad, but now you're exaggerating a little.

Weren't you one of the people crying foul when Intel pulled its ads from Gamasutra? Who indeed cares about the petitioners? Intel is the only entity making any decisions about where they buy ad...

Nobody was talking about you.
That is not a response to my question. Based on that, the petition holds no grounds either.
The questions is whether the PR coup is worthwhile or not.

People also have the right to be critical about said protest.
How is it any more naive than being entitled to not have a shop carry an item anymore?

So it's OK to pull a game based on an overdramatic petition started by a bunch of loons trying to create fake outrage but not wanting to give a website click-revenue for being hypocritical (GTA V is...

I had the same situation with Dr. Fetus. I could blow up the poop but was pushed back through the door every time. Very annoying.
Anyone else doing the challenge runs? My progress with them is...

There you go.

I updated my post. It was not my intent to mislead someone. If you google the news many outlets report it as something separate and don't even mention that they are both owned by the same parent...

Kmart is also pulling the game from its shelves. It's possible that other retailers may follow so the "slippery slope" argument is not completely invalid from an empirical point of view.

Yeah... being self-conscious is hard. Polygon rode the GTA V hype train and made money, now they are banking on the petition to generate some more clicks. Apparently it's OK to virtually kill cops...

I agree with Unaco and Geebs. Somewhere someone is always offended about something, to make this an universally accepted criteria for allowing certain products to exist is simply impossible and...
