    I knew that game was destined to kill several brain-cells, and many many hours of young men's lives. I walked into a music store the day it came out and saw one fo the girls that's always at the counter looking through the manual as she shows me what she just bought. Ironically I did a speech on videogame violence and the effects on young adults a few days ago. :D

    Though I play it, I am worried about its affects. People are rude and nuts enough, already; this ain't gonna help. Now back to the game.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much Ibanks, if people are crazy enough to do what a videogame tells them to do, they are already beyond help. The ultra violent people this game will produce will be too busy... playing the game to go on a killing spree.

    Though, when GTA3 first came out, I found myself even more paranoid when I saw the cops.
     
  8. Even more paranoid than usual, eh?

    No really, you had some good points. I hadn't thought about that.

    Ha, I don't have reason to fear the cops, but I always have. Mostly because I come from a town where cops like to bust teens for no good reason (they had nothing better to do). So growing up around that, I've always been freaked out by the cops.

    ugg video games are a waste of time.

    But the game looks cool, I was watching my neighbor play it for a few minuts when I went over to borrow some ketchup. It even has profanity in it, which rules.

    This is why I try to avoid these types of games. Although I must admit Madden 2005 had a tight grasp on my life for a few weeks.

    I got it Friday and with how much I love GTA3 and Vice City.... I'm unimpressed. It definately *feels* more real to play it (driving, running, clubbing) but the story so far is real weak. The whole "Gang-Banging" plot bores me though... I did realise that going in. I'm not much of a prude at all... but damn does this game max out the "F bomb" quota.

    I'm gonna grab "Bard's Tail" tonight... shoulda bought that one first.
