That's why games have a rating system.

"Is Bulletstorm the Worst Video Game in the World"

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/...ds/?test=faces


In the new video game Bulletstorm due February 22, players are rewarded for shooting enemies in the private parts (such as the dick). There’s an excess of profanity, of course, including frequent use of F-words. And Bulletstorm is particularly gruesome, with body parts that explode all over the screen.

But that's not the worst part.

The in-game awards system, called Skill Shots, ties the ugly, graphic violence into explicit sex acts: "topless" means cutting a player in half, while a "gang bang" means killing multiple enemies. And with kids as young as 9 playing such games, the experts FoxNews.com spoke with were nearly universally worried that video game violence may be reaching a fever pitch.

“If a younger kid experiences Bulletstorm's explicit language and violence, the damage could be significant,” Dr. Jerry Weichman, a clinical psychologist at the Hoag Neurosciences Institute in Southern California, told FoxNews.com


Remember what they said before GTA came out, about the same thing and look what happened.
This entire article reads like an advertisement. If I was a teenager and I wasn't already interested in the game, now I would be!

Don't fall for it. Fox News totally mislead me on Mass Effect's "virtual orgasmic rape" too. Bastards!

The article actually says the game could make me rape people, which must be true, or it wouldn't be on Fox News.

This is kind of what I was afraid of...bad press for games in general...sensationalizing about what games do to the children...because, you know, they are the only ones who play games. Sigh.

Shut the fuck up chess, before I rape you. I've been playing the Bulletstorm demo all day, so you better be careful!

I heard there's a "Rape Leaderboard" in the game.

Weichman's a guy who does a lot of public speaking events at schools, which he charges for of course, so him willing to be give a Helen Lovejoyesqe quote isn't a surprise.

The media is going to sensationalize things like this regardless. Just look at the controversy over Mass Effect's "sex" scene.

I'm not sure why gamers need validation from the world for what they enjoy.

I went to PAX one year, and I didn't even get raped once. It's really kind of shocking in retrospect.

You should have asked for a refund

That Fox article actually reminded me to check out the Bulletstorm demo (forgot I downloaded it). It was okay, but got bored quick, and don't plan on buying the full game. Eh well...

1.0 out of 5 stars Corrupts children, February 8, 2011
By Aaron S. Ehrlich - See all my reviews
This review is from: Bad Girls (Paperback)

"Bad Girls" will have a devastating influence on the youth of the world. Children as young as 9-years-old are being exposed to this text.

I can state with certainty that any increase in crime rate that may have been noted near your hometown can be attributed in large part to the authorship of this book.

Shit it's almost 2:00, gotta get back to raping.

Someone needs to post a review on that book about how it caused them to rape someone.

I would, but since I actually played games a lot these last two weeks because of the snow, I might actually need to rape someone...and then that would just be evidence.

The same thing happened when Fox had that segment on Mass Effect's sex scenes. I love these Amazon reviews

"1.0 out of 5 stars Does this book lead to an increase in rape?, February 10, 2011
By
SGR - See all my reviews
This review is from: Bad Girls (Paperback)
A horribly written book by an author who knows nothing about psychology. The extent of the authors "expertise" comes from a biased and uninformed interview on Fox "News". There is very little true psychological advice in the book which focuses on teaching women to lie, cheat, and manipulate to get ahead instead of standing up as their own person. This type of poorly written trash leads to an increase in rape and other violent behavior."



And now it's 64 1 star reviews

$57.99 @ Amazon and it comes with a $20 credit. I still need to try out the demo, but scared of being dickless afterwards.

If you're scared of a demo, then "afterwards" doesn't even come into it.

Famitsu gave Bulletstorm a 9/8/9/8....solid score, though Famitsu is ALL over the place at times with reviews, but if this holds up like most of their reviews of non-Japanese games, then we should see high 8's, with a few low 9's from sites like ign/gametrailers.
