Re: Foul language in videogames is it neccessary or not?

And I do find it interesting that the OP complains about M-rated games getting into the hands of "innocent" kids who don't know better, like its the only place they'll learn to swear...what about R-rated (or worse) movies and TV? I know many of them are as bad or worse then the worst language-offending games. Would the parents not be at fault if the kid saw them, like some suggest should happen when a kid plays an M-rated game?

Quite a bit of dead threads have been resurrected lately. Wonder why.

 

I'm sure most children have heard (and learned) far far worse from their parents than they have from any game, movie or tv show. I know my daughter has.

Oh, I agree. I hate that the "focus" society (or at least the media) has on games is that they are all bad and need stronger monitoring/censoring (depending on who you ask) and that parents shouldn't be expected to actually parent in this situation; games are for kids and its not their nor their parents' fault for them playing an M-rated game. Gamers are evil (it seems every time I hear about someone going crazy and shooting someone they always try to frame gaming) and games should be outlawed and crap like that (nevermind that its so dang easy for kids to get their hands on R-rated or worse movies and content online; no, its always gaming's fault)

That's why the ratings come into play for this. Parents need to be aware of this.

Since I'm playing solo all the time without any kids involvement, I don't see any violations for me.

Many online PS3 games like RE ORC and Uncharted 2/3 said offensive language from their mics !

Any game with online will have people that are over-the-top with cursing. Doesn't matter if you are on the PC, PS3 or 360. There will always be people who just curse way too much. That can't be monitored by the game, and its why the games always say "online interractions are not rated by the ESRB"

Parents do need to be aware of the ratings without a doubt. This is where being a gamer parent comes in handy. We're more aware of what's in a game than a non-gaming parent.
