Games and violence: Rockstar.. pff.

Pin It
When i was kid i see for the first time the GTA in a Pc, it was really cool, you know... it was a different game play and all, but I wasn't a huge fan of GTA series.
So resuming a lot: I grew up. (=
With a dream to be a game designer. And what do I see now? A huge enterprise called Rockstar that learns how to make money in games. Extreme violence and polemical topics.
I am on the side of the free creative rights. BUT! I think that exists a thing called responsability, and well lets see what does that means.
Everybody knows that this games are rated, but everybody knows that young dudes dont give a fuck for this "rated thing". The parents nowadays aren't what we could call "exemplar". And some kids are ruling their homes, and another ones fucking shoting schools (Cause it's so easy, just got a gun a bang, right GTA? Right REAL MOTHERFUCKING LIFE?) (See, i am not blaming games for the violence, i am blaming the real life, game is just a "photography" of it). A child dont have a full comprehesion of what it is right and what is wrong, and even if the child have a few of knowlodgment about it, this kid will not be a very cool dude to take a chat if it spends all minutes in their damn life in front a game, siting in a "killing sofa" eating like hell. But then came the game Bully... ho ho ho. ¬¬

But ok, this is a parent problem and not an enterprise problem. The developer just got a theme and make a game of it, very keen. What is game, an art? an ideology? just fun? Yeah, just FUN.
We have to have the mind on it, we are here to have fun. I have this on mind, you have this on mind... but, do your neighbor have this on mind? As guns are sold for protection, does everybody thinks this way? So why do you have a gun? To shot first? Why you gonna have fun with some Abusive violent game? Anyway, its your life, you use and amuse it the way you think it is right, and if exists dumb people in the world, isnt your, mine or the developer fault. I accepted that. Really. So, the problem isnt sell games Rated. But you would have to show a medical therm allowing you to play it. Hah, just kidding.
But now lets fucking think like school. Your friend make some shit, and the teacher ask, who make this? And everybody remains quietly cause they don't want their friend fucked up. So, the upset teacher make everybody stay in classroom on the break cause of it.
Lets come back to games.
Angry parents meet more angry parents with some angry teachers and lawyers some night, burn some torchs, call an intolerant judge, and this judge make a motherfucker law banning violent games. And when judges mean violent, even the sentence "i hate you" is very violent for them.

So, when i mean responsibility i mean, if you make a very violent and polemical game for money, you can cause troubles to dudes that makes serious games like Metal Gear Series.
I would hate if I see games like MG banned cause an extreme thing done by some hated teachers and parents. SO! Lets start to think about, making game, making money, making future people and everything else. Something can be fun, but can cause trouble for everybody.
And only gamers will defend the games, NOBODY will EVER consider if them selfs are the guilty, or if the system, the life or even hoolywood. Always will be games. And for them don't exist category of games, "games are games and fuck you not my son".

Sorry for the violent words (=
But the next game for Rockstar could be PlaneShock [Elabore an terrorist attack].

This is just my opinion and i can and may be wrong in somethings, if you think anything about it, let me know, comment it.
