You'd think without the paranoid puritanism of evangelical Christianity, Japan could avoid this brand of ridiculous, politically-motivated nonsense. <sigh> I'm not a fan of GTA either (the mission-based gameplay bores me to tears and I don't get any kind of high off of beating hookers), but Japan's government has far better things to do than this.

Theres a lot of contradictions in what I just read. The game has an 18+ rating, which by default should limit its sales to minors. Why would the government also need to prohibit sales when there's already a warning? Then again, this might be remniscent of sales in the US.

Anyway, I was wondering about GTA's popularity in Japan. GTA and Halo are very popular in the US, but are they well received in Japan?

There has been quite a lot of Columbine events in Japan in the recent years, so they're a little icky on all that violence, especially because the link with videogames is easier to draw in Japan.

It isn't enforced by law.

Now if only they could find a way to mix the free roaming aspects of Grand Theft Auto with hentai games to stalk and rape unsuspecting girls on trains...

Quite frankly, I'm surprised that there isn't a doujin game based on Nevada yet.
