@Anarchy-Marine said in Potential Reason for the Game's Censorship:
Kids shouldn't be worried about any of that stuff to begin with. Be it politics, or what their preferences/identities are, (if you want to go that route) Teens, maybe, and only if the thought crosses their mind organically. I'm seeing pro, and anti LGBTQ groups, trying to shove thoughts and opinions down kids throats needlessly, when they should be being taught more practical things, that you need in everyday use, such as basic math, reading comprehension, and manners. Kids and teens these days, have a sh*t attitude as an end result.
But we aren't talking about kids here, we are talking about adults. We aren't talking about Disney films, we are talking about how some censorship, can, and historically does, lead to more censorship, in video games. Al's body, I don't really care about, but according to other users, the bath scene gives context to other similar scenes in the later story arc, and could indicate removal of those scenes. Those scenes, have more character development.
Honestly, kids have always had a bad attitude. The brain of a child is not fully developed so they tend to argue about things they don't understand simply because they don't know about something and are angry they can't do the bad thing. Off limits items are as highly regarded because of this.
This defense has a few holes. If censorship leads to more censorship, then how is some censorship okay but the other is not? Just because you don't care about it, does that make it okay? If you do care about it, why is it okay? Is it the public perception that makes some content not okay? Because if so, a bath scene with questionable connotations among minors seems more like an easy target for a censorship nuke.
