| It means a lot. It's a child, further explanation is not merited.|
Why is further explanation not need?
In that case then let me ask you, do you feel that murdering adults in video games is ok to do?
It's within the boundaries set by society, whilst it is the morally wrong thing to do, it's tolerated for video games. (if this wasn't the case there wouldn't be any video games with human characters at all). Featuring children on the other hand is not. It's nearly impossible to elaborate on something that's considered to be common sense.
Besides why fix something that isn't broken in the first place, GTA works perfectly fine without children being featured. Having children in a GTA will only cause an immense amount of controversy/outrage and lead to the game being ostracized in not a small number of countries. Why risk all that, when it is perfectly fine as is.
Exactly. It's withing the boundaries set by society. Boundaries that change with time and at some point there will be children in games like GTA, I'm sure of that, and they will be accepted there just like adults are now.
You've just contradicted yourself and proved there is no other point there besides ''society standards''. Society also found it perfectly fine to burn ''witches'' a few hundred years ago. Yea.. SOCIETY IS FAULTY.
You fail to understand that having children in a game like GTA would lead to it either being ostracized in not a small number of countries, or have it heavily redacted to exclude the children from the game. So why not prevent that all from happening, and not include children in the first place.
On another note are you seriously comparing a medieval society to modern day civilized society? Please, tell me you're joking. As of today children have what can be compared to a 'protected status' in modern western society, they're not to be trifled with. Especially not in a video game where the player is free to do whatever the heck he/she wants.
I do understand what would happen if they put children in the game. And I don't care if there are children or not.
I'm just trying to tell those who are dead set against them being in the game like that putting them in there doesn't mean Rockstar are evil pedophiles or that people who would kill them in the game are evil or pedo. The only reason you state is ''society rules'' and my example was there to show you that society is not always right and it changes over time. Somebody already explained I see, thank you Hodgey1989 (we're the same age if you're '89).
So I do see children appearing in games like GTA before 2020 and I don't see nothing wrong with it. One game will take all the rage, the company will probably be ruined, but it will open the road to other developers and people will accept it as being what it is.. a virtual world.
All I'm saying is, it's wrong of people like you to accuse others of being criminals for something they do in a video game. Until you do something to harm another LIVING BEING in any way, you are innocent.
