"I've seen the game myself and it's far too violent and obviously harmful," the governor of Saitama, Kiyoshi Ueda, told the paper. "Freedom of expression is one thing, but the wholesome upbringing of youths is also important and this was the only option."
Guess what? TV shows the same stuff. Time to slap AO on it and ban it, too. Alot of movies have killing and sex, time to ban movies and slap AO on them. What about the internet? LOADED with crime and sex. Yep, time for a ban and an AO.
The point I'm getting at is, EVERYTHING has this stuff in it. If you try to shelter children from this stuff, you only make it worse. Then they WANT it. They aren't just curious anymore, they actually WANT this stuff because it's forbidden. You don't even let them taste it, so now not only do they hate you but they are going to do whatever it is you don't want them to do ANYWAYS! It's lose-lose for you.
this is getting very rediculas. Why would parents let young kids play a Mature game if they are so worried about violence, drugs, sexual themes in it. If they are worried about that then don't let the kids buy the game. Their is no reason to ban a game. That is just stupid. Parents should actually have a brain and not let their kids buy the game. People these days. I just can't believe some of them. This world is getting very stupid all the time. Most of the worlds governements are crazy. One little game won't put the world to a end. GTA is just like many other games like True Crims(well sort of), well what about the other shooters games what about them hmm. Well I have said all what I can say for now.
