Everything should be censored to a reasonable extent.

It does help protect children.

Yes, there should be age restrictions.

EDIT: Just realised I didn't answer all of your questions. dontgiveafuck.jpg

I think there should be censorship across the board or not at all. Why can books publish anything but films can't show everything. Why can theatre groups do anything but then video games have boundaries?

I do believe censorship is a good thing. The BBFC in it's current state are a very good example of how censorship should work.

it's pretty bad, distorts the creator's work

Why do you think people try to censor others?
they force their view on others

Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how?
they cut out violence and sex in my TV shows

Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?
none

Do you think censorship helps protect children?

[X] Yes
[ ] No

Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?

[X] Yes
[ ] No

when you say restriction I'm thinking not like a legal one but a suggestion so the parents/guardians know if it's appropriate. I think the social element of society should be free.

Eh, young kids shouldn't see sex or strong violence until a certain age. Non-sexual nudity and profanity isn't too bad for them
Let the parents decide

What is your general opinion on censorship?
There's a place for it but it's more often than not a terrible thing.
Why do you think people try to censor others?
Nowadays it's usually to shield children from reality but it can also often be to hide the truth/force thoughts
Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how?
Yes. Most of the ways don't really matter (bleeping cursing, nudity etc) but there were likely times where the important truth was censored and I didn't even know.
Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?

[/] Television Very slightly

Do you think censorship helps protect children?
Depends, it protects their innocence, which is important, but I'd argue they'd be smarter and therefore safer without it. So I guess no.
Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?

[ ] Yes
[/] No

[x] Yes
[ ] No

sure it helps protect them from hearing or seeing anything sexual or violent or anything in other ways deemed unfit for society, but i don't necessarily think stuff like that needs to be kept away from children. it needs to be explained to them.

Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?

[ ] Yes
[ ] No
[x] other

i think there should be something on the box to tell people what they're getting into when buying it, not necessarily age restrictions.

okay if its for public decency, not okay if it puts limits on opinions expressed
Why do you think people try to censor others?
well, some governments do it to suppress certain political beliefs, and I think this is wrong, some people just do it to make sure there is some standard for public decency

[X ] Yes
[ ] No
it can, if you've ever shown a horror movie to little kids, you've seen why they shouldn't just be able to run into it on T.V. also I think most of the time it really is mostly children watching T.V. as they have not yet discovered the internet
Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?

[ ] Yes
[X ] No
but I think ratings are good, and I don't think there should be laws restricting sale, but I think private companies should be able to decide whether or not they want to sell more adult games to children

1. Its totally counter-productive and enforced by lunatics.

2. Because their agendas are somehow the only thing that matters to them.

3. Not particularly.

4. Bleepy bloopy pop music made by cretinous hypocrites.

5. No, they'll find out eventually.

6. For reasons sake, yes, at least to let people know the basic content of the game by the age demographic, but dont restrict the ability for people to buy it.
