This is game isn't in the least bit productive anyway; just more trash for modern teens to indulge in.

rofl, way to take a game so seriously that you flip out on your sunflower forum about it



heres a hint that the retarded parents and any weak-minded individuals out there who can honestly say they committed a crime due to a video game, or were so negatively influenced by a GAME that they went crazy and shot up their school:



ITS A ****ING VIDEO GAME



ITS NO MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE BOOKS YOU WOULD ALL RATHER READ WITH THE IMAGINATIVE MURDER AND CONSPIRACY PLOTS



GROW THE **** UP AND LEARN TO DISTINGUISH GAMES FROM REALITY

Oh... joke about an old thread that somehow went horribly wrong.



(Unless you actually know that, in which case, the joke is on me.)

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

Even though they are taking the piss out of PETA, I feel offended by, only because PETA is like a fund, they wouldn't say **** about some childfund or anything like that, instead they are dry enough to judge people's diet, that's about it right. And guitar hero 3 come on this game is more addictive then ever right now!!!! and BETTER

Find us some real humour and we'll laugh.



My 13 year old niece could've written something funnier and more original than that.

Finally, something we can really get out teeth into, video games!







[/I]I stand corrected. I should not have mocked. After all, this is not a joke. I personally have 7 polar bear as pets. Once one of the polar bears ate one of my cats but, you know,that is a small price to pay in the name of polar bear rescue.





[/I]Again, I stand corrected. Plans are a very good source of fibre. Particularly housing plans. Once I ate one of the neighbours plans for their extension and this was a very good thing. Not only did I obtain a valuable source of dietary fibre from the paper they were printed on the once I had eaten them the council could not approve of the extension on their house. Imagine the noise of the builders!



I guess, however, it depends on the plans you are eating. If you find that someone is, for example, planning to go on a killing rampage at their local shopping mall then eating those particular plans might be a very good idea.



Finally, are all the GTA4 threads some kind of weird viral marketing campaign? I mean, I sincerely didn't consider buying it until everyone here kept harping on about it. I might even get it. It has polar bears! How can lose?





hehehehehe... ok I'm not going to catch up by reading this entire thread. I'm sure it's all very interesting and stuff.. but I'm at work.. LOL



Just my two cents - It's a video game based on controversy.. and I love it. Now, I don't want my son playing it, but I love it, and as I'm reading the first post.. I'm cracking up.



Don't take life too seriously guys. Just laugh it off! Like we don't pick on the omnis anyways

I've been more peaceful, both with myself and others, since extremely reducing violent and sexual media exposure.



Just sayin'.



Of course, this could work the other way as well, as I become more peaceful, my desire to virtually knock peoples' heads off with a shovel isn't as prolific. Probably the two work together. Our thought patterns mimic what we are exposed to. In a similar way a child will learn to solve problems through rage if his/her parents solve problems through rage. Our attitudes and internal functioning will mimic what we indulge in, regardless if our exterior actions do or not.



I had extreme road rage during the years I indulged in violent games and media.

I no longer do.



Correlation? Causation? I certainly don't have any tangible evidence for this apart from noticing those things in my life that change at the same time. I've also gone vegan in this time, grew closer to God, started to read more, and moved away from old friends. Any of these could be connected as well. A look at my posts from the last few months compared to a year or more ago should serve as evidence to the renewal (that I attribute to Christ, you may take it as you will).



But like I said, just sayin'.



Try a media fast some time for yourselves just to see. A month with no games or tv.

Perhaps games do impact us. Just as tv. Just as our friends. Just as most environmental factors.

I'm a 37 year old mom and wife, and I think it's funny too. But even if I didn't find it humorous, I think if you're offended over a joke in a video game that you don't even play you're looking in the wrong places for stuff to get pissed about. I can think of a million things worth being upset over, but jokes told in a virtual internet cafe called [email protected] (come on, that's funny right there) is not worth getting worked up over.

I love satire and understand where the GTA games are coming from. Yet there is a line that sometimes gets crossed pushing people like Ann Coulter into thinking that it's okay to spew hate if you finish every sentence by saying "I'm joking".



I fugure if I can dish it out, (http://youtube.com/watch?v=a15KgyXBX24), I need to be able to take it too.

That's great! I am trying to do the same thing. Care to share your plan?
