@grumblegrumble: to my knowledge there is only one user who winds up 'scolded', and usually it's because he started the original topic not a month prior or we linked him to the original topic in chat and he chose to ignore it and create another topic anyway.

@Adam: the warning was added by Prosody because people kept complaining about/reporting spoilers in that thread too, and we are tired of having to babysit it because people keep flipping the eff out about it. bottom line is that if you're looking in a Metroid: Other M thread at this point in time, someone's bound to slip someplace. Avoid the threads altogether if you don't want to accidentally be spoiled, y'know? :/

This is one of those things.
I wouldn't want my kid playing through the "No Russian" level of Modern Warfare 2, but then again, I played endless amounts of Mortal Kombat, the original GTA, Goldeneye, and any other violent games I could get my hands on as a kid. I think the important thing is to NOT PUT THE VIOLENT GAMES ON A PEDESTAL. Telling you're kids, "you can't play those games because you're not old enough" is just ensuring that they'll find a way to play them.

So we should also do away with the age of consent and age limits for driving, drinking and smoking, because that's putting all those things on a pedestal?

I read that as 'don't just tell them 'you can't because you're not old enough, give them reasonable-sounding reasons' -- like 'sorry honey, but you're just not big enough to reach the pedals and the steering wheel at the same time', y'know? or 'but, sweetheart, you don't want to pickle your liver or turn your lungs black, do you?', lol.

sorry waltz... i do agree with most of your argument, but if anecdotal evidence can't be proof that the rating system is 'wrong', then it also can't be proof that it's 'right'. :3

Real answer: 20 and still waiting. Haha oh god I'm a loser. goes to put head in oven

sorry to single you out, dude, but this exemplifies the negative stigma associated with growing to adulthood and still never having started making any serious forays into the world of non-familial love. unfortunately, there's so much pressure today for elementary-school-aged children, even, on TV, in books, and in other media, to start kissing, dating, and doing other things... a good portion of our userbase is very young, and the last thing we want is to add to that kind of encouragement.

long story short, if you've already had your first kiss, great, and if you're still waiting, great. your first kiss will happen when it happens; it's not something you want to rush into. :3
also, us girls totally have cooties... make sure you get your shots before trying anything >:3

My password protection will be to take an axe to the keyboard every morning before I go to work, and then buy a new one on my way back home.

that's gonna be some expensive protection, lol

It doesnt' offend me per se, but I was under the impression that this place aims to be family friendly?

apparently you've been playing more pornographic games than the rest of us, Waltz. If you like, feel free to contact the admins about it; they're the only ones who can do anything regarding user avatars or profile/sig information.

So....it's basically Super Mario All Stars on the Wii. Wow. Nintendo loves constantly pimping out their games again and again.

seriously? how many threads have we had regarding All-Stars eventually hitting the VC? not to mention that it always pops up in the 'most wanted for VC' lists... i know i'll settle for a Wii version at a discounted retail price (no way in hell i'd pay $50 for it like a normal Wii game, but $20-$25 with that soundtrack and booklet sounds good to me).

I believe the stronger influence is the parents.

this is a good point too. being active in their choices and playing the games along with kids, it's just like watching TV along with them and supervising their internet stuff; people need to raise their children instead of letting technology raise them.

@WaltzElf: look at who's doing the replying -- the kids who want to play the games in question without restriction. of course there's gonna be a double standard all up in this thread. :3

that said, I do feel parents should be paying attention to the games their children are begging for, and doing their homework as well. there's information about everything all over the internet now, so there's no excuse anymore for people not being aware of what's going on in the games their children want to play. in the end, though, it's up to the parents to make what they feel are the right choices for their kids, not ours,
