Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

Mass Effect's "sex scenes" were totally overblown if I remember correctly when Fox News reported it. There's definitely a double standard when it comes to violence and nudity in video games, and when the latter happens it gets an M rating so I don't see why it has to be controversial. I can understand games like BMX XXX getting controversy and back in 1993 I could see why Mortal Kombat would be shocking to a lot of parents though.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

It's not that the information given in the article is bad, but rather the author's attempts to be humorous by misinformed use of profanities and innuendos. Maybe if he didn't make an effort to be "edgy" and "funny" the article would have been good.

The "hot coffee mod" in GTA: San Andreas was blown way out of proportion, seeing as it was a mod for the PC version {which no one played anyway}. It was put in the game by the developers, but it really wasn't something you could access by normal means.

It's sad to see how outraged people get over sex and the human body.

@steven- it matters what site makes the article?

I'm tempted to post something long winded, but that really isn't my style, so I'll try to make my point quickly.

Spike is about as video game savvy as my grandmother, have you ever watched a spike video game awards? "Okay let's get Malcom from Malcom in the middle to walk through the pyrotechnics, have him jump on the Harley and drive through the cheer leaders go up and shake hands with the DJ pretending he's a huge longtime fan, okay cut the GNR tunes and announce the best skateboarding game of the year, Tony Hawk 4 wins! and now get Malcom out of there and cut to the Tony 4 commercial.

They are probably the most biased company trying to tie themselves in with games. Here are the 2009 winners:

Now how many of those games came from somewhere outside of the U.S.? It's way too obvious that there are nothing but one big advertisement.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

I thought the list was pretty accurate when you consider that their audience is guys from the US. I don't agree with all the games but they're all very popular and big sellers, what's the problem? This is no different then all the other biased lists out there.

The only reason I asked is because I don't remember anyone having a problem with any other site when an article is linked. Did you think the article was way off base? I thought it did a decent job of summing up the moronic outrage over the years.

If you want to read about video games on a site where you know everything you read is nothing more than an advertisement in disguise, then be my guest.

And for the record i thought the article was atrocious, for one it is an incredibly stupid concept for an article. The very basis is faulty, this is essentially a list of games that happened to make the news for whatever reason, then they took out MK and called it "overblown" it's retarded.
Why didnt they just keep Mortal Kombat and call it the top 10 most controversial games?

I challenge you to name 10 controversial games that were not overblown. Cant do it? Good, you proved my point.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

It's just another video game list on a website. Why are you acting like it's a big deal? This is the first time I've read an article on Spike and I didn't think it was as bad as any other ones linked on RU.

Because there are a lot of younger folk on this site and it's nice to be able to educate them, as well as call them turds.

Educate them about what? I think it's obvious that none of us agree on any list, why is this any different?

Btw what was the obvious advertising in that list you posted? I saw a few stupid ones but the actual game ones seemed pretty close or right on.

Okay so I will educate those who I expect to know better, as well as the younger members:
Spikes video game reviews are provided by the companies that produce them, if they choose to review a game that they are not in some way affiliated with, they will allow the games direct competitor to review it.

Oh and their video game awards are bought btw.

Same with G4 then right? I've watched that before it is just full of obviously scripted reviews and bs. It used to be good back when it started though.

I know, sex is natural, as is the human form, so why is it so bad to see depicted in a video game?

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

It shouldn't be bad if the game is rated M.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

I know, but apparently depictions of sex {even if you must hack into the game to access them} tend to earn an "AO" rating.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

AO(adults only) is fine but it should be merged with M since that's 17 or 18 years old anyways.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

I know, one year shouldn't make a difference.
You can buy the console version of GTA: San Andreas at 17, but you have to be 18 to buy the PC version {because of the mod}, wow. Like that one year is really going to make a difference.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

Well then, why was only the PC version temporarily moved to an "AO" rating?

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

I think there was a recall on the console versions then re-release with it taken out.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

Oh, I think I remember that. All I remember for sure is that people were pissed off because their kids might have the capacity to see a depiction of sex.

Two issues I had with it all though:
1] If you are so concerned about what your kids are playing, why are they playing Grand Theft Auto
2] The news blew it out of proportion, making it seem like this was something anyone could access by normal means, not a mod.

Re: Spike: Top 10 Most Overblown Video Game Controversies

Lol, when my bro found out about it he got my mom to run all over town trying to find a copy that hadn't been taken off the shelf yet, making her look like a pervert.
