What you need to realize is that 4 of the worlds largest countries combine for a total population of over 1/3 of the world population all have serious hang ups around sex
I pity the fools. We should do everything in our power to help them.
What's more, most of the games here were originally intended for kids with the adults who played being essentially a bonus.
After my initial shock and disbelief, I opened my self and casually browsed through the titles there: Assassin's Creed, HoMaM 1-5, Legend of Grimrock, Darklands, Star Control, Alone in the Dark, Scratches, Empire Earth, Zork, the Witcher 1 & 2...
Nonsense. You can BARELY claim that most titles (>50%) here CAN be played by children... and they'd have to be not only smart analytically (lots of hardcore strategy games, stat-filled RPGs...) but KNOW ENGLISH well enough (which is something that might not accur to you all that naturally). I dare you to name over 50% of our catalog here and claim these games were MAINLY geared towards CHILDREN. Not to mention that this means bugger all nowadays, since children will likely look down upon such oldies.
Super Mario being for kids I can buy but PC gaming has been pretty hardcore since its inception, with not nearly as much truly-children-oriented games as on consoles.
Quibbling about the primary audience doesn't change the fact that it's something that's not appropriate in most parts of the world to talk about around children.
I am not going to be terrorized by CHILDREN; especially not hypothetical ones. Fuck them - they want to be here, they are going to have to play by the rules WE dictate.
If they are to be sheltered, they should be LIMITED to sites "FOR CHILDREN", it's not that ALL sites should limit THEMSELVES just because children might venture there - that's asinine.
I also feel like I've stated this already...
I don't really care, I just think it's rich whenever Europeans presume to be the center of the universe. When on issues like this you're definitely not.
I'm not saying this as a European, I'm saying this as a rational human being. And don't you dare categorize me and use anthropological relativism on me ;P.
