I’m in no way affiliated with EA or EA Sports or any other computer company. I still find EA pretty cool. They are the only major video game developer company I know that has publicly defended a video game.
It’s not FIFA 08, but the RPG Mass Effect. Electronic Arts recently bought the franchise rights to it and has since been under fire from various medias.
EA wants to clarify the serious errors done by Fox News, including the error about full digital nudity and sex and the ability for players to engage in graphic sex.
Mass Effect is available for Xbox 360 only (or “SE” Xbox as the Fox Network calls it).
Kotaku.com has the full story on this.
Start out by watching the video here:
The video is pretty hilarious. Serious journalists and educated people are talking about a video game they’ve never played. We play the exact same video games in Europe, sometimes even naughtier or bloodier than they do in the US, and still we have no shootings in school or malls.
After the video read this article about the whole situation.
I don’t know what to say, except quote John Cleese’s Notice of Revocation of Independence:
You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you’re not adult enough to be independent. Guns should only be handled by adults. If you’re not adult enough to sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you’re not grown up enough to handle a gun.
This is so stupid and pointless. I know they have a lot of other problems in the States, that they should worry about instead.
How many children see weapons in WalMart? In their homes? See their father use or wear a gun? Watch animals mate on National Geographic? See Pokemons fight or be bombarded with advertisement when playing with their Webkinz in a virtual world?
