@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

Companies can’t sell age limit wares to minors but for an M rated game there is absolutely no way to ban a kid from playing, parents buy their kids violent videogames all the time, the clerk can’t legally stop a parent from doing that.

There’s an age verification page on this site, is it up to the company to track down liars and demand to see their i.d? What about if they download the game?

Personal responsibility comes into play, here. The company already says loud and clear that this game isn’t for children and asks your age to even view the site or Steam store. What more do you want? They can’t parent somebody’s kid.

Is porn making its way into video game?

Already has. Probably before or around when I was born and I'm 31. xD

good old custard's revenge

That's the one I was thinking of!!!

Rain making comments about game companies bearing any responsibility reminds me of the old saying my parents had. If everyone else was jumping off a bridge to their deaths, would you do the same just because everyone else was doing it. Or would you do it because someone else told you to, and later, they asked if I'd do it because I saw it in a movie, these were cognitive tests my parents gave me to see if I was ready to experience the world. If I could differentiate between reality and fiction, or see insanity when it was near me.

Thanks for quoting his comments guys, he reminded me that personal responsibility doesn't exist in this day and age, and that everything is always someone else's fault, a fault of which we retain the rights to hold a class action lawsuit. An age where parents blame everyone but themselves for a child who wound up on the wrong side of the law, and an age where politicians blame everything but themselves, and the money they took on the side, which prevented them from taking the steps necessary to make sure that their cities didn't become poverty stricken ghettos, a situation which forces many to a life of crime.

Let's be honest, the only responsibility any corporation owes anyone, goes to the employees that work their asses off to bring us said content, and those they sell to. To those they sell to, their responsibility is an honest trade for their respective currencies, and not to be given the run around on cost of the product. And to the employees, that's fair pay, fair hours, and to be treated like human beings, and not some cog in another soulless machine, bereft of any heart. That's the only responsibility, and beyond that, all responsibility falls outside of their jurisdiction. Consumers have to decide of the content is right for either themselves, or their children. But again, we apparently don't live in that world, everything is flip flopped, good is called bad, and bad is called good.

The problem I have is that you guys are not willing to reach out your hand to stop them from jumping. You guys are kind of like the people watch the life drain from someone or waiting to see blood spilled on the floor. That’s your enjoyment and you seem to think it ok because it isn’t you, until it is. You like those people that said convid-19 isn’t real and everyone shouldn’t were mask 😷.

People like yourself are just selfish! Non-compassionate.

@RainGnyu There is a difference between 'compassion' and 'control'. I would and have reached out to stop a 'jumper' but controlling a person's access to information, be it factual or fictional, is not compassionate. It is an act of gasp CONTROL. As @Anarchy-Marine pointed out indirectly, teaching a person WHY they shouldn't 'jump' is a far better option as there is now another person with knowldge to reach out their hand and so more 'jumpers' might be saved.

Those who advocate 'control' want power and have spent decades indoctrinating people like you into accepting that indvidual responsibility does not exist.

Basically give a man a fish feed them for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed them for a lifetime.

That makes no sense whatsoever! Reads of misdirection in an attempt at indoctrination in itself.

The man is hungry now! Why not do both?

You're not making any sense whatsoever.

@RainGnyu You are missing the point. In learning to 'fish' the man gains both a 'fish' for today and the ability to get more 'fish' at any time. This is 'compassion' for another, while simply giving a 'fish' is an act of 'control' because the target is still dependent on the gift of 'fish' in the future.
