I was reading the thread about Manhunt 2 being banned in the UK and I thought "Why is there even censorship?". Maybe this was already asked but I wanted a quick answer and didn't feel like using the search bar.

If you had a 4 year old son do you really want him flipping the channels and coming across "Backyard Whores 5/Dirty Sanchez Strikes Back!"?

i wouldnt mind if he did, just means hell learn the facts of life early... censorship is for those who are afraid of what kids might think but sheltering them isnt right either

I think he's asking why there is censoring when it's gonna get banned.

Why not just censor it so they wouldn't have to ban it?

Yeah he'd learn the facts early while also having to learn how it is to have a ****ed up childhood.

No, I am asking why there is Censorship in general

There is censorship for an obvious reason. Although I do believe that banning the game all together was bull****. Because if it has a damn rating people will know how bad it is, and take that into consideration when they buy it. A 10 year old can't run into a store and get a game that's rated M without his parents there to say he can play it right?

Censorship, in my eyes, is a complete waste of effort, especially with all the contemporary electronic means of entertainment.

I agree with certifications and warnings, for definite, but not censorship.

If the kids want it, there's no way to stop it. They have the internet. It's like the anti-drug laws. People get what they want, no matter what. Banning things isn't helping anything.

Manhunt 2 isn't coming to the Wii, PS3, or PSP in the U.S. because of its AO rating.



ARE YOU SERIOUS?

DAMMIT!!!!

Censorship has such a double standard, Sex and swearing are like the worst thing ever and a 10 year old isn't allowed to see a boob on T.V. or hear Fuck, but he can watch Kill Bill and see someone brutally murdered and thats O.K.
