    True to that. You always have to upgrade you PC or Mac to get the best experience.

    Nothing wrong with PC gaming. Like I said RTS games are a must on PC. But I take gaming as my relaxing time. So I prefer it be on a couch just laying back than sitting in a chair like I have to do already 8-10 hours a day at work.

    Out of curiosity, has anyone heard of the violent video game law?

    Wow a buddy just started talking to me about a game we used to have to play in Tech Ed. Took me a while to figure it out but the game he was talking about was The Incredible Machine. Been a long time since I played that and now I want to again.

    (Moved this from the random thread to the gaming thread so I don't get yelled at.)

    Isn't that what ratings are for? I mean stores are already supposed to not sell games that are rated a certain way to kids and that is what this bascially is.

    I was at the GT4 release at midnight and saw a mom with a kid that was maybe 12. I wonder if she even knew what she was buying him.

    It's a law when ages under 18 aren't allowed to purchase rated M games. In 2005, Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the law in California. If violated, retailers have to pay a $1000 fine. In April 2010, it got sent to the Supreme Court for review. Michael D. Gallagher, president and CEO of the ESA, calls this unconstitutional. We had this before, but it got rejected and this year, it may change. I find this pointless.

    There are 11 states that favor the law. (Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Texas, and Virginia)

    "These violent video games, on the other hand, can contain up to 800 hours of footage with the most atrocious content often reserve for the highest levels and can be accessed only by advanced players after hours upon hours of progressive mastery." -Leland Yee
    Really? 800 hours?! Where did you get that number?! It takes slightly a month to reach that if you played games nonstop. For me, it will take 100 days to reach that! (8 hours a day.)

    Not sure how to side there.

    It doesn't really bother me. As long as they don't go Australia and ban violent games altogther. Ratings are already on the box and parents should know what they are buying.

    Yeah, but in America, parents don't look at the content. They just buy.

    There is a country where ALL video games are completely banned.

    I agree that is the problem. They buy them then complain about the game.

    Just like all aspects in life, its the parents, not the games. The parents make (knowingly or knowingly) the decision to allow their children to play these games, not the makers. Just like with movies, its not the script writers, actors or directors that choose whom attends the showings of their films. The same goes for parents. The whole law is nothing more than a scapegoat for an extreme lack of parenting... Its always easier to blame someone else when it is actually you ( the parent) who is the problem.
    You see that "Thanks!" button? It likes it when you click it!

    I know, but these idiots think it is the retailers. We already have policies requiring your ID. The law is pointless. It isn't gonna shape up the parents' decision. 8 year olds play MW2?! Really?! I'm glad I use the Wii more often.

    The results will come in October.

    I hope it does come into play only because finally the retailers can only sell to adults and then they can say "You do know what this game is about right?" Or just be like "when you head shot someone the graphics look awesome!." Or "You gotta try picking up a hooker then after you chose the deed to be done shoot her and get your money back." Maybe then the parents will learn more of what they are buying.


    But really agree that it is not the retailers full responsibility. It is a tiny bit but only to a small point.
