GTA:SA and the insanity of this country.

Now the insane of this country is in an uproar because there is a downloadable modification to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that unlocks pornographic scenes in the game. Apparently to some Rockstar (the publisher of GTA:SA) has gone too far, though Rockstar denies putting the content in the game and insists the modification adds the pornography to the game. Whether Rockstar added it themselves or not, who cares. Firstly, the game is rated M for Mature due to “Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs”. I think that should cover Rockstar’s ass.

Of course it doesn’t. Why?

“While San Andreas is already full of violent behavior and sexual themes, the pornographic sex scenes push it over the edge,” said David Walsh, of the National Institute on the Media and the Family, which issued a “nationwide parental alert” Friday.

This is what makes America fucked up as compared with much of the rest of the world. To many in America, children seeing violence is relatively OK, but if a movie, video game, et all. has nudity or Heaven forbid, SEX!!!! then it’s something that must be shielded from children. Why is it OK to Americans for children to see acts of hate, rage, jealousy, and/or insanity, but not OK for children to see acts of love, pleasure, fulfillment? Europe is not like this.

Think of it this way: I could throw on Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas right now and spend my entire time killing Police, then killing the EMS workers who show up in an Ambulence, then fire bomb their Ambulence, and finally blow up the Fire Truck that comes to put out the fire. According to the gentleman from the National Institute on the Media and the Family, this was OK. Now that apparently Rockstar has put pornography in the game, they have gone “over the edge.” Does this make any sense to you?

It makes absolutely none to me.
