What gets me about this whole thing on sueing them over the Hidden Sex scene, there are worse things in the game other than the hidden porn scene. Sex/porn is an easliy accessable through other means, TV, Video, Internet. Which would you perfer, your kid watching porn or actually going out and having an active sex life.
Here's part of an article I was reading that got me started on this post.
The game, released in 2004, is one of a series in which the player takes the role of a criminal who commits murder, deals in drugs and pimps prostitutes in a virtual Los Angeles. However, the makers, Take-Two Interactive Software, may have stepped over the line by embedding a game within a game called Hot Coffee in which the characters have explicit sex under the control of the player.With a game like this how can you say that you steped over the line by adding sex? Something thats natural, non-the-less something thats hidden in game. Usually these things are not known by average players until it is spread via forums and in this case the Media (news). Which in my eyes is more violent than any movie or game. You don't see anyone going after an author for a really sexual or violent book do we?...
The point of the legal actions are mainly based on the rating being off. From Mature 17+, to what should have been on it Adult only 18+. How can you differ from a year? Kids these days see sex and talk about or are even active, What so different from acting it out on a game than watching it or even going out and doing it.
Enough of me rambling, the News is on, time for my daily dose of Violence.
