    Those people have nothing better to do and are wasting their time. I feel bad for people like that who try to ban video games. They need to wake up and realize that we're in 2008 and the Inquisition doesn't exist anymore.

    I haven't played the game personally, but even I'm open to the possibility that this game would act as a release for people that are being bullied, rather than inspiration for bullying.

    Of course, these accusations wouldn't have a leg to stand on if there was more academic studies and higher profiling of games. As a media text, they should be put under the same scrutinies and be under the same protection as films and TV. Often, people recognise that films explore issues, rather than promote specific ideologies (or at least some films). And what better way to explore than through actual narrative interaction?

    This is like the south park movie except canada is overreacting here

    If you dont want kids playing the game, don't buy it for your kids. Outside school you have no control of what the kids do, say, or buy

    They have a different rating system then us across the pond. Our M rated games are 18+ over there.

    In the UK it's 18.

    Regardless, the point still stands for the UK system.

    Err, it's in several countries, not just Canada.

    A coalition of groups representing four million teachers in several countries, including Canada, is urging retailers to refuse to sell a controversial video game about school bullying.
