Sorry if this has already been posted..but I could not find one.

Anyway..I am really anoyed at this..FOX news becomes experts at judgeing games...and this woman who wroth a book??? so shes an expert??
She never even played Mass Effect yet she beleaved she knew what the game was all about.
The game expert was fantastic...of course the 1 question: " have you played this game? " of course..she said no:wtf:

What did you think of this??? The fact that she said...stop defending games " darlin " is such an insult for a man who is a real expert.

"Let's all skip through fantasy meadows holding hands and singing"

Uh huh...now the real world.

There's an Age Rating on the back, MA means no one under the age of 18 can buy it, but if their parents decide to buy it for their kids they should be held responsible, not the game companies.

The fact is that if you went to the game company and asked them exactly what the game contained, they would tell you, from that you should be making your own decision.

that sums it up exactly!! All these fox news reporters act as they know everything, they know fuck up in reality! Its funny to see them argue on shit they dont know anything about like bill orielly etc. Daily show is actually good for news haha it shows everything, whilst only news channels put anything they want on it, for example I didnt hear anything about the internet equality, did u?

EA's own VP sent a letter to Fox News, this is what it says.

Ms VanHorn,

I’m writing to request a clarification of serious errors FNC made in a story which aired about the video game Mass Effect. (See attachment) As the parent company of BioWare, the studio which created the game, EA would like you to set the record straight on a number of errors and misstatements which incorrectly characterize the story and character interactions in Mass Effect.

Errors include the following:

• Your headline above the televised story read: “New videogame shows
full digital nudity and sex.“
o Fact: Mass Effect does not include explicit or frontal nudity. Love scenes in non-interactive sequences include side and profile shots – a vantage frequently used in many prime-time television shows. It’s also worth noting that the game requires players to develop complex relationships before characters can become intimate and players can chose to avoid the love scenes altogether.

• FNC voice-over reporter says: “You’ll see full digital nudity and the ability for players to engage in graphic sex.”
o Fact: Sex scenes in Mass Effect are not graphic. These scenes are very similar to sex sequences frequently seen on network television in prime time.

• FNC reporter says: “Critics say Mass Effect is being marketed to kids and teenagers.”
o Fact: That is flat out false. Mass Effect and all related marketing has been reviewed by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and rated Mature – appropriate for players 17-years and older. ESRB routinely counsels retailers on requesting proof of age in selling M-rated titles and the system has been lauded by members of Congress and the Federal Trade Commission. In practical terms, the ratings work as well or better than those used for warning viewers about television content.

• Other sources used in the segment made similar incorrect statements about the game. Judging by the inaccuracy of their comments, they have had zero experience with Mass Effect and are largely ignorant about videogames, the people who play them, and the ESRB system that governs their ratings and sales.

The resulting coverage was insulting to the men and women who spent years creating a game which is acclaimed by critics for its high creative standards. As video games continue to take audiences away from television, we expect to see more TV news stories warning parents about the corrupting influence of interactive entertainment. But this represents a new level of recklessness.

Do you watch the Fox Network? Do you watch Family Guy? Have you ever seen The OC? Do you think the sexual situations in Mass Effect are any more graphic than scenes routinely aired on those shows? Do you honestly believe that young people have more exposure to Mass Effect than to those prime time shows?

This isn’t a legal threat; it’s an appeal to your sense of fairness. We’re asking FNC to correct the record on Mass Effect.

Sincerely,

Jeff Brown
Vice President of Communications
Electronic Arts, Inc.

Wtf! does this have to happen every year!?!? I mean ever since the "hot coffee"
spot on Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas its been the new's pick to make sure there is something to BITCH about when it comes to videogames. You have everyone just going on and on about stuff that they don't know anything about. Spend an hour at work in a debate with an priest about this topic... And, I'll tell you the priest wasn't happy with my answers... So what?! They've never picked up a controller before, and don't even know what the F is Burnout, or Call of Duty... Old miss Hilary probably thinks Call of Duty is the governments Call to Arms... And the people at fox probably think when we refer to "knights of the round" its from the Midevil times...
I'm all for Gamers Unite! and here is something else we can look at... who's the people that make the spots for these new casters, mayor's and government heads? People who feel that Media is a form of art that can be broad casted over the world...
Its now time for the indastery and its people to stand up.. and if Hilary gets into office, I say we march to the white house on her first day of office, and put the facts into her hands!

Ya! Sadly the media is so stupid and makes the worst of anything and over exaggerates as to how bad the situation really is.

And with EA starting, who else won't? I feel that Rockstar should also come in and take what EA has started and make it an Industary uprising of epic paporations. What's next? the library sued over carrying "Catcher In the Rye"?

there will always be a scapegoat.

remember, before the focus on "violent video games," the focus was on the music industry (back in '96-'97) specifically, Marilyn Manson. Colombine was the climax of that crap, where politicians, experts and other professional were going on-air on all the major news stations citing something needed to be done. Even going the extent of reading song lyircs on-air, and then claiming that it influences kids (although, anyone with a brain could've interpretted the lyrics correctly; here's an example of one song I remember being read on CNN: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/marilynmanson/getyourgunn.html). After that whole ordeal died down, the next focus was on hip-hop music, and that was short lived as Eminem was the next big target.

Colombine was also the first time that video games were accused of being influential - specifically Wolfenstein3D and DOOM - of which both kids were supposedly avid gamers of. No mention was made of ever made of Duke Nukem 3D or Quake, though. I still applaud how professionally ID Software handled the bad publicity, even going so far as to state they will no longer develop such violent games - all the mean while, they secretly begin work on the game engine that later powers Doom3 (early concept art and game engine renderings were leaked back in 2000).

That's what gets me.. There is all ways talk about how "Music" and "Video" makes a person do these types of things.. But, what about Books!?? Has there ever been a Song, Or Videogame to which the WHOLE GOVERNMENT watches who buys it? NO. ONLY BOOKS of some sort.. And One book is like I've said before "Catcher In the RYE". It's hard as hell in the US to get a copy and not have the feds going up your a$$ and seeing what type of Corn you ate yesterday... And Can anyone tell me who read that book and went on kill sprees??? I don't see a cop coming at my door in the next 30 mins because I'm going to pop in my Mass Effect cd...

Sorry to say it, y'all, but the most violent, explicit, disturbing form of entertainment:


The local evening news.


Follow with a viewing of a national news broadcast on CNN or FOX, and you'll be guaranteed to be numb to violence within 5 years.
