because she has nothing better to do than complain and pass stupid laws, she thinks that it should be yanked off the store shelf because it has an unlockable porn part. but Rockstar the creator suggested that they put 18 year old+ on the label but nooooo! that was good enough for hilary. i doubt she has ever played games she is just do this b/c she has nothing better to do. i am really restrain myself from cussing...

Because she is a parent that is concerned about other parents having to deal with this type of thing. So what if it has a 18+ rating? Do you know how easy it still is to get a "Mature" game? I could just get my grandma to buy it for me as a gift and they would think of her as a guardian. The worse part is that Rockstar put the "Hot Coffee" code in the game. Not some hackers. Rockstar already made a extremely controversial series, added a sexually explicit cheat in the game, and lied about it! If I was a parent concerned about the wellfare of my children, I would be pretty outraged too. If you want porn, go on your computer for it. Don't make it in a game.

Even "Mature" games have to have a limit. They can be bloody, gory, violent etc...but to a certain point. I personally think that Rockstar was wrong to put the "Hot Coffee" mini-game in. Dont get me wrong, I love the GTA series (Still playing Vice City and loving it), but Rockstar really did cross the line with the "Hot Coffee" mini-game.

She did this for good PR.

I heard that the MOD was hard to unlock. I don't care frankly because I don't have any of the games. Actually I don't have a PS2 or Xbox and I don't want the PC game.

But if you listin to tWiT they talked about this. She is talking about the MOD but what about the violence. You can walk cut someones head off, have blood splurting (is that a word?) everywhere, and you can kick the head around.

I can careless because I don't really like the games. I would rather play some CS:S/HL2 or BF2. Hmm... maybe I will do that now.....

hillary clinton should><. quite literally.

video games simulate what is real. so what if there is a sexually explicit cheat in the game? as starr said, the violence is much more of a factor than the 'hot coffee' thing. honestly, if you're mature enough to cut someone's head off and kick it around, you're mature enough for the 'hot coffee' mod.

and what about other games, like bmx xxx? has anyone complained about those? probably.
has anyone gotten them banned? no.
