... didn't anybody think that leaving the Hot Coffee code in the game was a bad idea?
Yes, Rockstar was very stupid.
Clinton is ... hmmm ... not stupid but she doesn't remember what it was like to be a kid during those days... I don't really know if kids today are different, or imitating what they see in videogames really...
All I know is I played Wolf 3D and Doom and stuff like that (Crusader: No Remorse, anyone? The soldiers exploded into pieces of meat when you killed them!) when I was 12, played the Leisure Suit Larry series around that age too, and I consider myself a pretty hardcore gamer but not mentally damaged in any way. I don't consider myself overly violent in anyway (not that I've never been violent before)... never shot a gun or wanted to own one (I think they should be banned in the US).
Side note: I remember you had to answer questions about the 80s in order to play LSL 2, I think. You wouldn't be let in the game until after passing the quiz. It was really funny, I just kept going by trial and error until I got it right. =)
Do you think that games these days are so realistic that kids won't be able to tell the difference between reality and a game? I guess I'm an adult now, and I can obviously see that difference... but I'm not sure what kids are like these days... what kind of evidence do you see?
In Japan, I see schoolgirls playing mostly music games, kids playing shooters and stuff, they look normal to me... =P as normal as Japanese society shapes them to be, anyway.
