    Okay. So don't watch porn.

    Why should anyone else care about your concerns?

    For the most part, I am satisfied simply with keeping criminally or sadistically violent video games out of the hands of children, much as I am satisfied in keeping most pornography out of the hands of children and would only wish to see a relatively small portion banned. I can only name one video game, off the top of my head, that I would have seen banned-- though I'm sure there were more.
    What about adults?

    It's worth reminding everyone here that it's not sex I have a problem with. It is degradation, and especially the association of degradation with sex.
    Now you're regulating degradation?

    Violence is something that adults should be acclimated to. My problem with video games is not violence, it is criminality and sadism.
    There is plenty of criminality and sadism in video games and in movies and TV. Children see it alot.

    It should be noted that I enjoy the Grand Theft Auto games, but I wouldn't allow children to play them.
    But nobody wants kids to see Max Hardcore either. This is about adults. What about adults?

    A game that depicted sadistic murder as the goal and rewarded players for inflicting additional suffering would cross the line from a game I'd see restricted to adults and a game that I would think should be banned.
    Ah. At least we're getting somewhere. Now you're censoring video games. What about mainstream movies? The Saw series for instance, where viewers are entertained by watching extreme, explicit torture? Want to ban those? I find them deplorable, sadistic, and degrading, and I think anyone who would watch them is pretty sick. What say you?

    As a designer of roleplaying games, sex and violence are recurring themes in my work-- but I am careful to depict degradation and sadism only in the background, and only as the behavior of the players' enemies. I generally only play with and design for adults, but if I were playing with children or designing a game intended for them, I would also be more careful in my depiction of criminality.
    LOL.

    I hope you end up getting your work banned someday, or prosecuted for obscenity or something like that. Would serve you right.

You could apply this "argument" to censor anything whatsoever, not just porn.

    This comment proves that your beliefs are all about invading people's privacy and right to their own sex lives. Stay out.
    That's all that really needed to be said

    Martin Luther wrote that he could fight off demons by farting at them. He said his 98 Theses (which helped him initiate the Protestant Reformation) were inspired by a particularly good bowel movement. This is the kind of uplifting, spiritual, and respectable message our society needs, not that porno trash.

    I have an idea. Let's put all of the children into a foam room with straight jackets. They won't be able to fight, be exposed to those dirty things, or do anything bad. We must protect the children. They are our future. Our cold, souless future

    I'm loving where this thread is going.

    Haven't heard from the Rat, he must be busy cleaning up all the sadistic violence in his latest video game for kids.

    Perhaps I am reading this wrong, but, I never understood gamers and their fascination with defending video games from every sight of attack. So far, it's led to extremely poor results in the sarcastic comedy category, as can be seen above.

    Perhaps they see Max Hardcore in prison and worry they're next.

    I would hope you wouldn't be serious.
