Damn the Japs, they're racist and unleash weird things. The only good thing they do is make electronics like the PS3 (which breaks a lot) and decent anime.
Wouldn't object to another bomb.

decent anime? Lol since when was that trashy cartoon ripoff pedo crap tentacle rape wannabe sh*t could be clasified as decent? RSR is better than any anime

I hope you didn't relate my calling them racist to the whole censorship issue, it's a whole other problems. They're into their own race and aren't always open to outsiders.

Someone prove me wrong coz I might just be.

Selling dolphin meat and causing mercury poisoning = totally fine

 

Slaughtering whales on the shores of Australia = all good

 

Chicken and a cow!? CHICKEN AND A COW!?!?

So, illustrated paedophilia (Lolicon/Toddlercon) is perfectly acceptable in Japan, while simple illustrated nudity/violence is prohibited. Makes sense.

 

Two things:

Loli is legal in America as well, otherwise I would've been arrested several years ago.

 

And lolicon is not considered acceptable in Japan, only a very small subculture spanning about 20,000 people are into it.

 

A lot of people in this thread are looking at Otaku subculture and thinking it represents Japan when they think it's weird over there as well.

The bong has been removed from Franklins apartment apparently, along with all the sex, nudity and Trevors torture mission.

The only proper nudity in the game is in the private dances in the strip club and when Trevor raids the Alturist camp, where there are a few creepy old fogies who seem to have rejected underwear and trousers as a modern concept.

 

However, I do agree with them removing the toture scene.  I didn't enjoy that at all and it didn't need to be in the game.  I would have much rather had a mission where Mr K is followed or the target guy (I can't remember his name) was traked through one of the characters phone.

I just don't get Japan.  As one guy said a few weeks back (with some additional stuff from me)

 

The country that brought us Audition, Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead, Battle Royale, Guinea Pig, Wicked City, Apocalypse Zero (and its penis tongues), Tokyo Gore Police, and all of the incest driven series edits a video game...

 

You forgot Imprint - master of HorrorÔdishon(audition)Grotesque (Japanese),

 

Sadly it isn't just anime, that they have loli nudity *shivers*

I'd rather that than sit playing some torture crap.  Some sort of stealth like mission would have been more in-keeping with the game.

Most of the censorship is ridiculous, but I would've skipped the torture gameplay if I had the choice. I didn't mind the acts, but the context didn't make sense to me and I thought it was handled poorly.

Have you ever noticed that in Japanese porn it's fine for a women to have sex with an octopus but if a man is having sex with a woman the guy's penis is pixelated/blurred out?

I live in Japan and I am currently playing through the Japanese version of this game. I have also played Japanese versions of Vice City, San Andreas, and GTA IV+both expansions, and all have been censored to some extent. I agree that Japan does produce some really messed up stuff from a western perspective, but none of this is mainstream and is frowned upon by the general population. However, GTA is somewhat popular among gamers and I've even seen commercials for GTA V on TV. Also, there is a game rating system in place, but I think the ratings for console games are fairly strict because they are widely considered to be "children's toys". PC games are generally for adults, and the ratings are more lax. As far as I know PC versions of GTA have not been censored. In general, sexually explicit content is not tolerated in console games, so most of the censorship has affected sexual scenes. Only very extreme violence seems to be censored. The censorship hasn't affected the enjoyment of GTA V for me. The changes are very minimal compared to what they did to San Andreas. In San Andreas no pedestrians ever dropped money, and whenever you use your gun, even with no police officers around, you got a warning level, among many other pointless changes.

P.S. Bongs are not censored.

I bet the Japanese forgot to censor Nagasaki Blazer, which is actually a high politically incorrect pun in Japan.

Apparently the conspiracy theory is now complete. This could explain why so many iso/json hackers are impossible to stop.

 

So it looks like the R* may also have the Japanese government to thank for some of its butt hurt received in GTAO from the hacker community to date :lol:
