I agree with the Pope. No sarcasm intended.
That makes two of us. We demand that parents try to raise their families to be less violent. Please explain why a ten year old needs a game where the goal is to make the most money by killing police officers and or shaking down hookers.
You want to try explain why it is wrong for the Pope to point out that the crap we are filling our kids heads with or worse allow those kids pick these games out for themselves?
I am a RPGer. I have played adult themed campaigns. I would not ever play that sort of game with a kid under 15. Yet I see these kids wanting to play Gear of War or GTA. If you cannot see where the Pope has said something of merit in this case. Please stop crying about the kid who has learned that killing your rival is the way to deal with others. And if that cop gets too close it is OK to kill him.
That seems to be what you are wanting here.
No, what I personally want to hear is parents actually taking responsibility (for once).
Seriously parents, if you don't want you child playing a "MATURE" (M.A.T.U.R.E. What does it spell? Yoooouuuu got it! Mature content!) video game, then don't buy the child the g*dd*mn game. It just shows how idiotic people can be, as they pit the blame upon others rather than even take even an ounce of it themselves.
I'm tired of this topic. . . it's gone on for far too many years.
Regardless, I disagree with you from the very depths of my soul
. I disagree with you so much, that I'm not even attempting to make myself look intelligent in my response to you. Now that
is some hardcore disagreement.

They don't. Those games are also marketed to adults (with a very clear "MATURE" label on their boxes). If a child has access to them, that's the fault of the parents.
