This is why women shouldn't be allowed to vote.
Yeah but we only do it to get laid.
Jack T gets all the bitches.

It's a VIDDEY GAME, you retarded twat.
|Hooker - 2008-04-06 |
Wait, you literally stab people with literal knives in Manhunt 2?
You do use the controller to mimic stabbing and other murdering motions but thats besides the point. ITS NOT REAL.
This game literally lets you pretend to be a murderer. Just like how five nights a week, Katie Couric literally pretends to be a journalist.
She loves that word. She asked Hans Blix what it was like to literally have the weight of the world on his shoulders.
KillerGazeebo... Holy fuck. That's the best idea ever.

this is just another re-hash of our generations Mortal Kombat paranoia, back when the media assumed every kid on the playground was going to try ripping out their friend's still-beating heart.
Kids aren't as dumb as the news makes them out to be... except for that one who buried his head in the sandbox. He was a real retard.

I tried submitting the "all manhunt 2 executions" vid, but it never made it out of the hopper. Probably got red flagged to death before anyone could even see it.

I remember playing Carmageddon 2 for about 12 hours straight when it first came out. I started having nightmares of massive vehicular accidents, and when I was driving I started getting pretty creeped out and testy. There must be something wrong with sustaining high levels of adrenaline for long amounts of time in a blood & gore setting. In general playing insanely violent games for a long time can alter your mood, as with doing any activity. Duh.
Anyway, I think people should be able to play whatever the fuck they want, but there is no way in hell I'd let kids play the totally immersive, fucked up shit they are releasing now. It's not Contra and its not Street Fighter.

As far as I can tell, the only factual piece of information in this video is that Manhunt 2 exists.

holy crap. she's 51.
|revdrew - 2008-04-06 |
I hate you Katie Couric. What she is saying is essentially correct, though.. got a kid under 17? Don't let em play Manhunt. That should be a no brainer anyway.
|Xenocide - 2008-04-06 |
I love how she buries "oh by the way, minors can't legally buy this" in the middle of the report, then immediately ignores this fact so she can continue scaring people.
Game retailers always get screwed over in these reports. They have become really anal and strict about their employees not letting kids buy M games, yet every time the news mentions the M rating, they immiedatally follow it up with "BUT RETAILERS LET KIDS BUY THEM ANYWAY HOLY SHIT!" I'd say they should threaten to pull advertising except the only companies that still sponsor the evening news make dentures and laxatives.

VIDEO GAMES ARE VIOLENT FRRRRRRRRRRHHHHBBLLLPPLGGGNNNNNGGGFRRRRPPBBLLB
Fuck you, Katie Couric. At least when you were on the Today show you were tolerable.
|Frank Rizzo - 2008-04-06 |
I loved the first one, but for somereason I never went ahead and bought the second one.
But now Im buying it, and not used either (I always buy used) Im gettig a new version to actually increase the sales.
I look forward to the quote unquote entertainment.
|CornOnTheCabre - 2008-04-06 |
beautiful. the way she's able to say so many consecutive words without actually conveying any meaning makes me realize why she has gotten as far as she has in American media.
|citrusmirakel - 2008-04-06 |
Follow up report:
"Manhunt 2 boasts an alleged sadistic violent bloodstorm that actually got it banned in the United Kingdom. A warning label on the box lets buyers know that the game is rated M for Mature, meaning that you're supposed to be over 17 to buy it, but there is NO warning label ANYWHERE informing consumers that it really, really sucks. Boy, does it suck. SUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!"

I'M GONNA STRANGLE HER WITH MY WIIMOTE!!! BLAAARGH!!
I'd give her a page of my notebook, but it's mostly just sketches of penises.
|RomancingTrain - 2008-04-06 |
How did she break out of the early morning quagmire?
|Camonk - 2008-04-07 |
Katie focused on the wrong part of that notebook pate. She shoulda shown the unicorn she'd drawn, and the little heart with Morley Schafer's name in it.
|Cube - 2008-04-07 |
THAT'S Katie Couric?
|Enjoy - 2008-04-11 |
And this is why we get our news from Jon Stewart.
|Vicious - 2008-05-15 |
I loved stabbing the fuck out of the air with a Wiimote.
|oogaBooga - 2008-09-18 |
I loved manhunt 2. Then again I love putting pens through people's temples.

Wow. What a great time capsule. Everyone rightfully recognized this as just another video game moral panic by clueless idiot fearmongers and pundits, then just five years later a good chunk of you decided that yes video games do destroy society by turning women into 2nd class citizens. Kool-Aid is a hell of a drug.
Hell, the dumb violence moral panic even had a more solid case since players are directly engaging in violent acts in-game. How many retarded leaps of logic are required to connect video game bikini armor to domestic abuse and glass ceilings?
God damn the rise of Twitter really turned this country stupid.
