@RainGnyu No more than the publisher of a novel or a movie studio is "responsible" if someone consumes their content and does something.
Then why is there a rating system if they are not responsible. People have to register for a gun, take a test to drive a car, be of legal age to by alcohol. So explain again why Sega isn’t responsible again.
the rating system exist to let people know the level of sexual content or violence that exists within the game, nothing less, nothing more.
Video Game companies are still not baby sitters regardless, thats not part of their job. Parents can still buy Mature games for their kids of they wish, but its not the company's responsibility for that.
Car Manufacturers are not responsible for drunk drivers or horrible drivers or even unlicensed drivers that drive their car.
Gun Companies are not responsible for gun related violence.
Alcohol companies are not responsible for the adults that give alcohol to children or the drunk drivers that cause tragedies.
They not supposed to sell to minors or they will obtain a fine and money penalty.....right. So how can you say they are not responsible?
Sound like you just trying to make it fit so you can have what you what. You guys have this ......hell with everyone else mentality! Companies have a responsibility to the community not just the individual.
You guys have a bad habit of ignoring that aspect to fit an personal agenda.
Your whole point is that its the video game companies responsibility for violence that happens in the streets, my answer to you on that is that they're not, even of they were happen to sell these works of fictions to minors, there isn't any scientific link that suggest that kids will suddenly get violent and turn into thieves, Kids usually intimate movies or even violent video games in a playful manner with their play shootouts of cops and robbers or gangs and mafia. A lot of states in the US dont even have laws that prohibit minors fr buying rated M games like GTA to begin with.
Whatever projection of yours you have on me is completely false as well, I have no Agenda whatsover, you're the one with the agenda. Trying push responsibility of violent acts of the real world onto video game companies
