    Tipper Gore and Lieberman, Both Dems are behind SO MUCH censorship. 

    I remember GTA when it first came out on Playstation (will not call it "one", cause it was the only). Mortal Kombat was cool on Genesis cause of the blood. I never went out and killed anyone for playing games. 

    Watch the documentary "I Love You, Now Die", cause really it shows how parents put aside their children's needs by medicating them and those drugs are nothing to play with. My Mother with early onset Dementia takes them.You start messing with the frontal lobe, you will have effects.NO CHILD should be taking drugs which NO DOCTOR knows the long term effects.So NO, the problem is NOT Killing Humans in video games, it's the perception taken from those who are not able to differ from reality.

    It makes more sense to BAN THE BLACK GANGSTER RAP promoting sex, rape, killing cops, etc... and just full of obscene language a words which OFFEND MOST NORMAL PEOPLE.

    At that point you are promoting censorship. Why not ban the killing of people on other media (films, documentary, books, audio, etc) while you're at it? A lot will not be happy if that were the case. Just like movies, video games have an age rating system to ensure their customers know what they are getting into beforehand. It's not the game developers fault if some parents are irresponsible and allow children to play video games designed for adults.

    This will NEVER HAPPEN as it would trigger a snowball effect with other mediums...

    If you ban killing humans in video games...  You'll have to ban it in TV, movies & theater...  then radio & music... then in print (books, newspapers, ect) & artwork.

    In short, you have to remove HUMANS FROM EVERYTHING to make the ban effective.

    The act of killing humans, through war, conflict & other actions throughout the depths of known human history is unfortunately drenched in the blood of other humans.  Death create drama, creates tension & high stakes for those involved in said conflict.  Having in video games is just a safer option since it's in a low consequence environment (being only a simulation).

    Within the US, video games are protected under the 1st Amendment, so such bans would be unconstitutional within the government.  However, this doesn't prevent market, industrial & societal forces from depreciating the act, especially when it's gratuitous & not warranted.  Such games tend to get high age ratings (typically ESRB M, as most publishers try to avoid ESRB AO as many storefronts refuse to carry them... which is why ESRB AO is considered a "marketing kiss of death" for most), relatively poor reviews & poor sales in respect.

    In current review respects:

    * Mortal Kombat 11 is sitting around an aggregate average of 82 / 100.  While the game does have violence & gore, it's core is mostly PvP combat & has built a history on this for finishing moves (which are 100% completely optional).

    * Hatred, a game that is a gratuitous murder-spree, has an aggregate rating of 43 / 100.  The game has been panned for a weak storyline as well as poor environment design & controls.  The game has been a bit controversial with it's content, which doesn't appeal to a general audience.

    There's also a lot of other games, commonly referred to as propaganda games, that are far, far worse by comparison as they try to push their views upon others through the medium of video games.  PETA is one known group that pushes such games (typically low-quality throwaway web-based titles), but others have actually made more in-depth (but still low quality junk) that will offend most people.

    Hope this sheds some light on the subject.
