Title: So have you heard about that GTA:SA stuff that was goin' on?

It now has an AO rating,  I didn't plan on buying it anyway :p. I'm sure we can go into the censorship of videogames and what not.

If you haven't read about it, there is some Mod in which you can unlock some sex scenes in the game.

I know it sounds like news nowdays, but this sort of thing has been around for quite a while in game. After all, you get a bunch of young lonely males programming entertainment, and it's bound to happen. In Quest For Glory 2 (which ran on 16 color monitors if you were lucky enough to have one) there was a hidden bit where the arabian princess goes to change clothes behind this screen before you try to sneak out of the palace. If you'd bought the "X-Ray Goggles" from the magic shop way earlier in the game, you could see through screen. Not that those additional 12 pixels were all that entertaining, but... Another example was the Nude Raider mod for tomb raider. Then there was the whole slew of leisure suit larry games.

Point is, it's not new, the graphics have just gotten better. Well, that, and politicians have decided that video games are finally worth making an issue of. (AKA, they actually know what a video game is now.)

No worries, I was just discussing my thoughts on said topic. Wasn't a criticism.

(As a side note, I like this quick-reply box at the bottom of the page a lot!)

You can take away the shower unit in the Sims too, but that's far less amusing than setting them on fire and taking away their doors.

It's a sad commentary on American society's standards when a game about clubbing hookers to death, running over small children, doing drive-bys, killing cops, assasinating crime bosses, etc is OK, but a game about all of the above plus having sex with your girlfriend is so awful it's worthy of congressional hearings...  :rolleyes:
