Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Um.. I am lost.  Are the games not already showing their ratings on the box already?  What is this law about?  I am so ****ing confused!

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I know that news sites have a lot of news to cover, but that comment on the end...what games don't get an ESRB rating? Has anyone seen one? As far as I know, you can't make a game for the big 3 without getting an ESRB rating.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Imports and H-games for the PC.

 

Most of the imports have rateing from their local system though.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Lol, I don't even need to watch the video, I just need to read these comments. It's obviously freaking hilarious

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

OMG!  Thank you New York government!  What would we do without your infinite wisdom!  Government is best for the people!

Wait a tick...  My GTA IV has a rating...

EGADS!!

They went back in time and enforced this law!  AMAZING!!!

What will they think of next???  Banning bottled water?  Only time will tell!

"...The Law requres a rating and description in the back of the box..."

 

I laughed saying IT'S ALL READY THERE!!!

 

:40 made me laughed harder than I did all day as they say the what the law is WHILE they are showing what's already there...

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I was thinking that maybe with this law if some parents try to sue Sony because little Timmy went postal in his schoolyard, the law will prevent this because the games are by law rated, so the parents won´t have any excuse to claim they weren´t uninformed about violent games.

Still, I consider this law is useless because is more to control videogames which is a rising medium than protect society.

Politicians don´t fucking care about people.

Lawl, they show a picture of MGS4 in there. For some reason that strikes me as an odd choice...

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

While poking around the RNN site for a transcript, I found this entertaining story: Paterson signs junior hunter bill.  Parents, don't buy your 14-year-old that Big Game Hunter title for their console -- put a rifle in their hands and take 'em to the woods for the real thing!

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

What wrong with the real thing? All it did was bring the state inline with most other states?

Not to say I like the NY law.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I think he means the Irony of people freaking out over Video game violence and how you can "Shoot cops and hookers for points" and then putting a high powered rifle or shotgun in a young teen's hand with out a second thought.

Hunting the shadows of the troubled dreams.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I saw the irony, but I also saw something else.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Another useless law.

Don't really care if it gets passed, 99% of all violent games that parents are all worked up about go through the ESRB already (would any major retailer even carry a non-rated game?) and display their rating quite clearly and, would ya believe it, always in the same place. 

BTW: Good Morning :D

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Won't stop them for a second stating that they have won by making the companies do this.  And then show the existing stuff that is already done as proof.  See this rating...see how this system can be set to play it or not...I DID THAT!  Can't wait.

MechaCrashThey aren't being held accountable because *this is what GamerGate is really about.* Hatred and harassment under a thin veneer of concern for ethics; it's a rotten movement right down to the core. Related: http://tinyurl.com/o5mamgn10/21/2014 - 1:53am
james_fudgeodd why would they delete pro vita comments?10/21/2014 - 12:50am
Neo_DrKefkaI am a little disturbed that members of #GamerGate are supporting and not holding its same members accountable when they say remarks that are unacceptable!10/20/2014 - 11:39pm
Neo_DrKefkaSome #GamerGate people are defending @kingofpol many are however lashing out at him but if we held Sam Biddle accountable and Gawker so must we hold @kingofpol and #GamerGate10/20/2014 - 11:30pm
Neo_DrKefkaA big name in the Gamergate movement Kingofpol uses a offensive term about autistic people and in turn the entire GamerGate community lashes out at him. We do not need false leaders who think they can say anything https://twitter.com/Kingofpol10/20/2014 - 11:07pm
Papa MidnightMP, honestly, I'm struggling to make heads or tales of the events being outlined in that reddit thread. I've never heard of Siliconera before, either.10/20/2014 - 10:48pm

Neo_DrKefkaId love to see people come 2gether whether your 4 or against gamergate to gather 2gether and support an anti bullying charity and I would love to see a pro and anti gamegate debate on a neutral platform that promotes discussion and solutions10/20/2014 - 8:33pm

quiknkoldAndrew : I dont accept any worded apology unless I can look the person in the eye when they say it. For me, he'd either have to make a video so I could read his bodylanguage, or actually do something. actions speak louder than words.10/20/2014 - 8:04pm
quiknkoldwell if they are looking for social pollution, Twitter is a great breeding ground for it. Its a breeding ground for deviance.10/20/2014 - 8:03pm

quiknkoldyou know, people keep saying Biddle's comment was sarcasm, but the thing is, Sarcasm doesnt translate well in Tweets. I took his words as really hateful, and unless I see an honest apology, I'm not going to be happy with him.10/20/2014 - 7:38pm
