So not making something illegal is supporting or encouraging it? So you ARE saying that murder in games should be banned, and theft and every other crime? I did not once say or imply this. I'm only opposed to child molestation, like most of the world's population. It's not simply a case of "not mak...

Spot on, I think kiddie-fiddlers are the scum of the Earth, and IMO child molestation is infinitely worse than murder, mostly due to the fact that the victim suffers for the rest of their life So in short you want games banned purely on your personal view of the severity of content rather than demo...

So do you also think that the high profile movies of the last few years that featured the same themes should also be banned? Or the numerous books on the subject? Come on, you seem to be an intelligent enough person, so you know this isn't really the same thing. We're not talking about games that t...

Reading through this thread I couldn't help but notice several people basically agreeing that a game involving child abuse shouldn't be censored.

That's disturbing.

I've always hated so-called "art," but this takes the cake.

Absolutely abhorrent if it is actually true. It's things like this that make me lose faith in the human race.

I'd tend to imagine GTA IV, Gears of War 2 & Wii Fit will do quite well.

LOL, there's a few: GTA: San Andreas, I'd equip the cheat mode which gives you a parachute, drive up to Verdant Bluffs (hilly redneck area) and steal a trail bike. There was one massive hill that looked out over the river, so I'd floor the bike, take a good runoff and launch over the edge, ditch the...

Just broke out the Game Gear and had a decent run on Land of Illusion & NBA Jam. It'd be a great little machine if I weren't stuck to an outlet to avoid paying through the nose for batteries :wink:

Warranty would be difficult. Live will be fine, the account matters not the machine. However, you'll also need to buy your boxed games from the US in most cases. Yeah, I thought that'd be the case. I suppose I need to weigh up the cost of repair (god forbid) against the actual savings I make, but I...

XBox 360 - should I import?

OK so I have the opportunity to buy a 360 online for around $400US incl. delivery. Converted to AUD that's around $430, saving me around $170AU off the standard RRP of a PAL machine. Sounds like a great idea I hear you say, but there are two things bothering me... 1) Warranty - would it still be val...

I used to be able to complete Street Fighter II on the SNES with every character on the most difficult setting without using continues. Damned if I'd be able to do it now though!
