Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Um.. I am lost.  Are the games not already showing their ratings on the box already?  What is this law about?  I am so ****ing confused!

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I know that news sites have a lot of news to cover, but that comment on the end...what games don't get an ESRB rating? Has anyone seen one? As far as I know, you can't make a game for the big 3 without getting an ESRB rating.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Imports and H-games for the PC.

 

Most of the imports have rateing from their local system though.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Lol, I don't even need to watch the video, I just need to read these comments. It's obviously freaking hilarious

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

OMG!  Thank you New York government!  What would we do without your infinite wisdom!  Government is best for the people!

Wait a tick...  My GTA IV has a rating...

EGADS!!

They went back in time and enforced this law!  AMAZING!!!

What will they think of next???  Banning bottled water?  Only time will tell!

"...The Law requres a rating and description in the back of the box..."

 

I laughed saying IT'S ALL READY THERE!!!

 

:40 made me laughed harder than I did all day as they say the what the law is WHILE they are showing what's already there...

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I was thinking that maybe with this law if some parents try to sue Sony because little Timmy went postal in his schoolyard, the law will prevent this because the games are by law rated, so the parents won´t have any excuse to claim they weren´t uninformed about violent games.

Still, I consider this law is useless because is more to control videogames which is a rising medium than protect society.

Politicians don´t fucking care about people.

Lawl, they show a picture of MGS4 in there. For some reason that strikes me as an odd choice...

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

While poking around the RNN site for a transcript, I found this entertaining story: Paterson signs junior hunter bill.  Parents, don't buy your 14-year-old that Big Game Hunter title for their console -- put a rifle in their hands and take 'em to the woods for the real thing!

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

What wrong with the real thing? All it did was bring the state inline with most other states?

Not to say I like the NY law.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I think he means the Irony of people freaking out over Video game violence and how you can "Shoot cops and hookers for points" and then putting a high powered rifle or shotgun in a young teen's hand with out a second thought.

Hunting the shadows of the troubled dreams.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I saw the irony, but I also saw something else.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Another useless law.

Don't really care if it gets passed, 99% of all violent games that parents are all worked up about go through the ESRB already (would any major retailer even carry a non-rated game?) and display their rating quite clearly and, would ya believe it, always in the same place. 

BTW: Good Morning :D

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Won't stop them for a second stating that they have won by making the companies do this.  And then show the existing stuff that is already done as proof.  See this rating...see how this system can be set to play it or not...I DID THAT!  Can't wait.

ZippyDSMleeI dunno I'd go to see it, seems liek dumb fun, better than half assed serious stuff that has so many holes large enough to drive mac trucks through(coughinterstellercouch).07/30/2015 - 10:58am
Andrew EisenGoth - Wait, you went to see Pixels just to spite Chipman?07/30/2015 - 10:49am
MechaCrashYou can see Pixels, which requires you to be a moron to enjoy it, or you can actually spend that time and money watching something actually good. Gosh, what a choice.07/30/2015 - 10:49am
benohawkHot damn, I'm sold. Why see something you can enjoy on multiple levels when you can nap through half the film and still get it all?07/30/2015 - 10:17am
james_fudgeSo what people are saying is PIXELS is a great movie to see if your are comatose.07/30/2015 - 9:47am
ZippyDSMleePixels is something to shut your brain off with and just try and enjoy. The rest of films not so much. LOL07/30/2015 - 8:49am
MechaTama31Child of Light looks interesting, but not "I'm willing to put Uplay on my PC" interesting.07/30/2015 - 7:51am
MattsworknameOn the subject of movies and video games, if you haven't seen it and your a street fighter fan, run down a copy fo Street fighter assassins fist. Its the best video game movie made, and its by a small studio07/30/2015 - 5:37am
Goth_SkunkSee, i didn't enjoy the Transformers films, but I don't really know why. I watched them for the sake of watching them, but I doubt I'd ever have a craving to watch them again. With Pixels, I would.07/30/2015 - 5:12am
Sora-ChanOn topics of movies in general: I usually find the argument of "shut down your brain and enjoy the movie" argument to be annoying. It was something that I was told to do when it came to the transformer movies from Bay, and it irked me when people said it.07/30/2015 - 5:03am
Goth_SkunkI did. And I didn't care much for it, but it was the reason I went and saw the film. The entire thing can be summed up in one sentence: "I didn't like it! If you pay to watch this movie, you're a big smelly poopy-head!"07/30/2015 - 4:56am
MattsworknameI think everyone here has Crono, we just don't agree with him or how he handles himself or his reviews, but thats us07/30/2015 - 4:55am
CronosonicThere are far worse problems Moviebob pointed out about Pixels than it not being 'serious'. Did you even /watch/ his review?07/30/2015 - 4:35am
MattsworknameAlso, newbusters verison. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/tom-blumer/2015/07/29/venezuela-orders-food-producers-divert-output-empty-state-stores07/30/2015 - 4:25am
MattsworknameNot game related, but wow, Were are all those people who sand the praises of venezula now http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/L/LT_VENEZUELA_FOOD_SHORTAGES?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT07/30/2015 - 4:25am
Goth_Skunk... is one you can acknowledge, then you'll enjoy it.If you CAN'T acknowledge such a mindset, then you must be MovieBob. Welcome to GP. :^)07/30/2015 - 4:13am
Goth_SkunkIf you watch Pixels expecting it to be Film Of The Year, or if you expect a Best Actor performance from Adam Sandler, then yes, you will be disappointed. If the idea that a film can simply be fun and entertaining without needing to be serious...07/30/2015 - 4:12am
MattsworknameIm kinda torn goth, on one hand , the effects look cool, but im not sold on sandler as the star07/30/2015 - 3:54am
Goth_SkunkBut did the film specfically take elements of Space Invaders and dedicate scenes and acts to it? No, they didn't.07/30/2015 - 3:49am
Goth_SkunkThe whole film is kinda centered around a Space Invaders theory.07/30/2015 - 3:49am
