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.

WonderkarpI didnt know we were talking about Capitalism. What do mass shootings have to do with trade and industry that is controlled by private owners for profit?01/25/2015 - 3:28pm
ConsterYou do realize that what you're doing right now isn't what capitalism means, right?01/25/2015 - 2:39pm

ZippyDSMleeeffect like confusion,ect. QTEs are a gimmick that can easily be shallow because you are looking to mess with conditioned responses and nothing messes with them more than random gameplay changes..01/24/2015 - 7:58pm
ZippyDSMleeWonderkarp: They tried to be natural with God Of Wars QTE’s, sometimes it felt random which I hate the most in QTEs. The way you interface with gameplay (press X to get X result) should never rely on randomly generated mechanics unless it’s a status01/24/2015 - 7:57pm

Neo_DrKefkaHey GamePolitics staff can you guys work out the way the ads are delivered via mobile? Sometimes any attempt to do anything on this site automatically forwards you to download "Flappy bird" on a shady site or another thing. It just hijacks my Safari01/24/2015 - 3:47pm
WonderkarpI feel like the only good QTEs were the ones in the God of War series. I dont know why though.. maybe its the visceral carnage01/24/2015 - 1:13pm
ZippyDSMleeprh99: QTEs are dumb I ever understood the need for them outside being cheap and wanting to pad mechanics with scripted events that use only a few buttons.01/24/2015 - 12:58pm
