He makes wonderful grades in school, has plenty of friends, doesn't do drugs, and has a vocabularly that shocks me everyday with the depth he seems to have a grasp on it. As such, he is allowed to do what he pleases. He's tried both ciggarrettes and alcohol in his life, was quite discusted by them and now know's he doesn't want to do that ever when he gets to the age where society deems he should be able to. He doesn't hide anything from our parents or myself, and is not afraid to ask about something he doesn't know anything about. He has two guns, a rifle and a handgun, has been certified and knows the dangers of them   I was raised the same, and am a successful father who doesn't cheat, have my own clear cut ideas on what i want out of life, have been married almost 7 years this year, straight out of highschool with a woman i love, who treats me right and respects the man I am.   Stop sheltering your fucking kids, idiots. They are going to be exposed to all these things that offend you so very much at one point or another.  Keep telling them no, it'll only make them want it more.

    He's 12 and has both has been allowed to drink and smoke? Your parents are morons and they are the biggest cause of why kids do what they do. He also has guns at his age? Your parents should be slapped hard! They are a disgrace to parenting and if anything happens to that boy, it's their own pathetic doing.

    As far as you, you're just as bad as your parents are. Who cares if you are with someone for however many years and yadda, yadda, yadda. You'll do the same exact thing with your kids and you're not any better than your own parents are.

    You spoke of people worrying about other parents kids, etc, etc, etc;  take your own advice and don't worry wether or not people feel like "sheltering" their children from people like you and your parents. Heck, I honestly despise people like you and your parents. So good job on achieving that. (I know, tempt ban for flaming. Well worth it). :)

    I see alot of complaining and no reasoning here. But i'll bite.

    We weren't sheltered from these things, so we turned out to be BETTER adults. When our parents felt we could make adequate decisions, they let us make them. Remember being 13 and wanting to do something and your parents going "You're too young for that". Teens want to be adults. They want to be treated like adults. Let them make their own decisions dude, else as soon as they turn 18 and move out, they go wild with all these things they 'weren't old enough ' for. This is when you find your 21 year old son with alcohol poisoning in his apartment(Common thing btw). Whereas in our family, we were SUPERVISED doing these things. I didn't go out partying when i turned 21, just to smash my car into some poor fellow and kill him and be sent to jail(Common thing btw). I tried it in a controlled enviroment, under the supervision of my father. Getting up the next morning with that hangover, still being forced to do my chores out in the heat, cutting the grass, because (My dad:) "You wanted to be an adult last night, adults have to keep up with responsibilities as well as their fun" really set it in my mind that alcohol just wasn't for me.

    So, you go on and tell me i'm a shit parent and my parent's are shit parents. I'm not the one on the internet calling your parents dumb for doing what they do, you are. Perhaps if they'd raised you right, you'd find that even though you are hiding behind a silly screenname, you should try and treat people with respect.

    But hey, you have my reasoning now. I'd be delighted to hear why you think what you do about my parents.

    EDIT: More food for thought, something a little more down to earth and away from alcohol and all that, and something far more common. The law(IE:society) says you arent allowed to drive until you have a license. Guess what age group wrecks cars the most. 18-24. Hence why prices on insuring young drivers is so high.

    Guess what my dad(and many others where i'm from) did? He took my teenage butt down a backroad twice a week when he wasn't busting his ass at work and taught me to drive. He did this for years.

    I have never wrecked a car. Ever.

    The Deep Web is sca-ry.

    This game is pretty good, in any case, don't play it with your kids around. Adult games/mmos should NOT be restricted because of bad parents. End of story. That really pisses me off.

    agree, and if protection of children is their priority, ADULT GAMES would be the last on my list
    how about guns, cars, smoking,drugs,,theyre far more dangerous, than a pair of cartoon boobs

    I thought the age gate on pornosites did a good job of keeping kids out, we should use those.

    Jokes aside, like with porn sites, how do you expect companies to ensure everyone is not a kid? Require the typing in of a credit card everytime? That leaves open the potential for card theft, and besides lots of these kids probably already had sex with their school mates and are on their way to a pregnancy (Not kidding). I think the game would help keep virgins.

    WoW. No offense but sometimes you can tell just by looking at a post its from a american. Again, no offense or anything wrong with being a american, but your culture is not exactly the norm in western civilizations. In Europe we have mandatory sex Ed in 5th-6th class, so about 11 year olds. And we don't go batshit crazy just because a couple kids might see some tits on TV or some smut magazines either. Infact the Bravo, a young teen magazine regularly features models with FULL frontal nudity(no pixels or holding hands infront), male and female in its middle part.

    Suffice to say, unwanted teen pregnancies are rather uncommon here compared to overseas, cause you know, we kinda make a point of telling them how babies get made before they start experimenting with each other.

    Porn sites aren't generally advertising in places where kids are expected to go.  Plenty of kids go to this site, however, and get to see the scarlet blade porn ads for several days at a time.

    Get over it, you have a straw man argument.

    Kids don't play MMO's. Any MMO's. More over, they aren't spending money in them. They don't have any.

    This site has 181 people logged in. I'd bet money not one of them is a kid.

    I love how you can make a definitive answer like this based on ZERO factual evidence. If kids dont play MMO's then whos playing the children MMO's: Pirates of the Caribean Online, Hello Kitty World, Fusion Fall, Toon Town, Star Wars the Clone Wars, Free Realms, Wizard 101, Pirate 101? All of these games are developed for CHILDREN to play. Also in my WOW Guild the Guild Leaders Grand Children also play and they are 6 and 8. So please tell me how you assume that Kids dont play MMO's.

    "Possibly we humans can exist without actually having to fight. But many of us have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If we kill people to protect ourselves and this future, then what sort of future is it, and what will we have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"

    Kids certainly play MMO's

    But ID checks are very tricky. Kids can get credit cards and find the answers to any questions posed with a goggle.

    I have noticed we don't have many players speaking in my outfit in PS2. Then we had a few with very squeaky voices, I did not have the heart to report them. But they could not be a day over 12.

    If I was that age I would be doing everthing to get to play the games I wanted to, thats the reality.

    I voted yes, but not because I think children (and a lot of adults) should be sheltered. To paraphrase a quote I heard before: "You cannot resist temptation if you have never been exposed to it."

    That being said, the reason I voted yes is because it's not children who need to be protected in this case. Who is it who gets in trouble when a child gets their hands on something that is clearly marked to not be sold to them? Is it the irresonsible parental unit? No. It's the retailer, the publisher, the developer. There are two possible solutions to this problem: either reform the public mindset to be more personally responsible, teach children to become good adults without crippling them with overprotective sheltering, and actually read what's on the goddamn box, or develop a more robust age gate system.

    Personally I'd like for the former to happen, but accept the latter is more feasible.

    Game is rated m, it should be for adults.

     

    It glorifies the objectification of women and is not for kids.

     

    Asking that a company take measures to ensure the game is actually getting to the crowd that it is meant for (m rating fellers) is a no brainer, and is NOT censorship like so many here apparently claim.

     

    INB4 H8, but a 0.05$ charge (or your regional equivalent) to a credit card that is refundable to download the launcher would greatly reduce the amount of children in this MATURE game. It may reduce the amount of people willing to play that ARE of age, but whatever they can suck an egg. If this were used the child would have to steal their parents credit card or ask them for it, and if the parent allows them to use it no questions asked then they are extremely bad parents. If the child steals the card and uses, and if the parents are anything like me (aka go through cc statements like actual smart people to make sure there are no strange things going on) and see SCARLET BLADE or AERIA GAMES, and ask around the household, and possibly go on the childs computer and boot it up..... IDK what the launcher looks like hold on let me google it...... yep looked up and the child would be SCREWWED.

     

    And furthermore to those saying watch over your own children and etc, if you remember back to your childhood if you had parents like that, always lording/watching/protecting, you likely are not on the best terms anymore. No matter how you look at it, you could never ever be on them all the time and know everything.

     

     

    Also this is coming from a person who thinks this game is garbage, but will stand by the reason of letting the RIGHT people play it.

    If ultraviolent games with realistic gore and spurting arteries can get by with lame useless "age checks" and a toggle to turn gore on and off, I don't see why this should be any different... but hey, this is mostly a NA forum refecting NA values about what is considered porn: violence and gore are bad, but sex is the worst... people in NA just need to get laid more. 

    Also... do you guys seriously think that your 13-yr old doesn't know that youporn exists? Give your heads a shake. They're just good at hiding what they want to hide from you... just like you were at their age.

    Good parenting does not mean obsessive and overbearing parenting, but neither does it mean attacking everything that the parents believe their children shouldn't be exposed to - particularly in cases where it's the parents' fault (exemplified by practically every case that Jack Thompson flung at the courts like some incontinent monkey) .

    Now I can't say what good parenting is - if I could I would pad it with two hundred pages of platitudes and statistics to sound all proper, then sell the damn thing - but I'll go out on a limb and say neither of the two aforementioned methods can be considered good or healthy parenting.

    There are already agencies in various countries that rate games,so it is out there.

    Where the problem begins is once you get into some foreign countries.

    Example China and japan have some old fashion morals which is a good thing,they also some some different restrictions on religion and rights than over here,some are good some we might question.

    Then we have some real offbeat countries that allow 14 year olds to be married,males can have several wives and treat them like slaves.Some of those countries also give the women no rights,so ya i guess i mentioned slaves.

    Then we have Korea.

    This country allows underage women to perform in night clubs,most of their biggest acts have scantily clad young teenage girls performing.They obviously have a bunch of old 50+ pervs running their laws and government.

    However for sake of argument,since these games are released here in the USA and Canada/Europe,they should have sufficient laws and guidelines surrounding them.

    Remember this,most of what you see can be seen on your public beeches.It is all in how it is presented or portrayed.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    No, what you should be saying is that not only is it intolerable that children can access this kind of material, AND ultraviolent games. One is not ok because the other exists.   As you say, children will hide this stuff, and it is the responsibility of parents (and indeed all adults in a community) to react - and hey guess what thats what you have here - a reaction.

    Maybe people would get 'laid' more if they did not watch porn play scantly dressed avatars of questionable age in a game where there are certainly children playing.

    1) Age of consent has always been rather arbitrary, it's only been raised because people are living longer, but from the 13th to 19th century Europe (and its colonies, which includes America) set the age of consent at 10~12. Now I'm not saying this was right, as I'm of the opinion a majority of the population can be immature well into their 20s (call me a cynic), but you should keep in mind 14 isn't unreasonable considering historical trends. Maybe you can call them backwards for not updating their standards to reflect modern age expectancy, but do also remember most of humanity also clings to religious beliefs that have hardly been updated in a thousand years. Everybody's backwards to some degree.

    2) Look, there's nothing wrong with polygamy. Treating people like slaves (which happens in monogamy as well, idly) is wrong, obviously, but monogamy is a cultural standard imposed on society for no other reason than that's what the dominant religion/popular opinion supports. The only argument I would make against polygamy is that if a man should be allowed to have multiple wives, then a woman should be allowed to have multiple husbands, but then there's this odd pervasive sexist standard than a guy who bangs lots of girls is a stud, but a girl who bangs lots of guys is a slut.

    Don't disagree with your other points, though I do want to point out that I don't believe Japan has morality laws. They have some outdated censorship laws, but things like age of consent (which is 15, iirc), entertainment industry putting underaged girls in skimpy clothes, treatment of actresses/singers/idols are all on par with South Korea.

    I picked the last one :) I remember watching porn when I was 12-13, so what xD .. you wont stop that on the internet. My kids will do it and yours too ... and you bet that is 100% true, if not in home, then in school with friends or on tablet, smartphone.

    Stop being so serious .. really ...

    so,,you want less pixel porn, and more REAL children?

    a brilliant plan,,we were getting short on kids with no future

    To be honest the people who get upset about games like scarlet blade scare me more than the guy running around naked in game. Someone is sexually repressing something and it's bloody obvious.

    I think SB is way over the top with it's skin showing game and personally have no desire to play it (I don't mind a bit of skin mind you but they've gone way up over the top).

    That said, it's up to parents to patrol their computers, cells etc. Lock them down and step up to block what they decide is not appropriate for their kids. Will that stop the kids from going to their friends? No. But if each person did their own part it would help over time.

     

     

  • simpliussimplius nakskovPosts: 1,128Member Uncommon

    showing skin is "over the top" but the sick violence in other games isnt?

    this is adult rated material,,seeing , what other games can get away with at lower PG rating,

    scarlet blade is VERY innocent

    Little timmy saw a pair of jiggly boobs,,CALL THE COPS

    Little timmy is shooting other soldiers in an urban setting,,business as usual

    there has just been another shooting spree,,i wonder why?
