I couldn't agree more with Rockstar on this one, their games still suck but they are right on the bad parents and pushing the boundries.
He's saying parents who just buy their kids games to shut them up without knowing what in the game are bad parents.Kiefer13 said:Fuck you, Lazlow. My parents are awesome.
Now buying Grand Theft Auto or similar games for your child and then just leaving them to their own devices, yes that is terrible parenting. But that's not what my parents did. They never regarded the age ratings on games or films as anything more than guidelines, but they always made sure that I knew the difference between reality and fiction was. They always taught me that while violent films and videogames were fine entertainment, the things depicted in them were horrible in the real world. And you know, even though I was a kid, I could understand that. And I'm incredibly grateful that my parents decided to teach me about the difference between violent media and real life at a younger age, instead of just hiding it all from me until I reached some arbitrary age that had been printed on the box.
Apparently she is.JimmyBassatti said:So wait, my mom is a bad parent because she lets me play said games, even though she explained to me that said things are wrong, and such?Kenjitsuka said:It's true... you're either informed and a very *cool* parent, or just a lazy miscreant who doesn't know what the term "grand theft auto" means in real life and you don't give a shit about your kid so you don't read the back of the game box... or notice the big *18* logo's on it... or watch the kid play it once... but do complain to Fox Newzzz how evil that game is!
