LOL!!!!

First of all, it's one politician campaining for this. We have hundreds of politicians campaining together for the same ***** and they still don't get anything done. The article said no one else has his back. (What the hell is Romper Room anyways). Plus the "M" rating is like a desclaimer. As long as they slap that on the case they are pratically un-sue-able. The responsibility then falls on to the stores to not sell it to minors then eventually to the parents to not buy it for their children.

Notice there is hardly any mention of playing as a police office to uphold justice and defend the frightend however NOT REAL NPC's? God forbid we look at both sides of the coin.

Also no mention what so ever of everyone's beloved Socom. As long as we're killing terrorists it's ok but once it's in you back yard then everyone point sternly and shun the bad violent video game.

[Dear Eidos,

Please make Schumer an NPC so that we may have the thrill of filling is elderly corpse with more lead then he already contains in his ***.]

What's got me scared is since the new company bought Eidos, are they gonna want to wipe their *** and pull it so as not to give off a bad first impression.

I wish Orchid would shine some light onto this forum and tell us everything is gonna be OK.

....or atleast where we have to send our hate mail and bomb threats to so we can shut this Schumer up.

Oh no, I said BOMB, someone call a senator.

That new company published Carmegeddon so.. Beside the changes of actually canceling a game would cost them too much. First having to buy Eidos and then canceling a game that would generate cash, wouldn't be a wise move.

U.S. Senator targets '25 to Life' video game
22 June 2005 2:12 by Dela

Once again the heat is on developers of violent video games as Sen. Charles Schumer, a Democrat from New York has targeted 25 to Life; an upcoming game which the Senator claims makes the Grand Theft Auto games look like "Romper Room" (a popular Children's TV Show in the U.S.). The video game is due out this summer. In the game you can either choose the side of gangs or the side of the law. The Senator wants this "cop killer" game boycotted by retailers and even calls on Microsoft and Sony to end their licensing agreements with Eidos.

Most gamers are familiar with the controversy that has surrounded Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the past months. The violent game was used as an example by lawmakers who are worried about the influence these games may have on children. "The last thing we need here in New York is to reinforce a destructive culture of violence and disrespect for the law. Little Johnny should be learning how to read, not how to kill cops," Schumer said. However game makers would argue that these games are not intended for children.

The sale of these "violent" games makes up a huge part of the industries $10 billion in annual U.S. sales. GTA: San Andreas was released in October 2004 and quickly became a best seller. Retailers and console manufacturers try to avoid the controversy of violent games, mainly due to the success of the games. The problema lot of lawmakers have the games is that they seem to get more violent as they go along due to the developers' need to make the games more realistic. 25 to Life features gun battles between police and criminal gangs, in which human shields are used.

The controversy seems very similar to past controversy over violent movies and will likely have a similar outcome.

If it goes by states do you think NJ is one of them?


I really dislike the news reaporters and how they talk about their news. Some can be just so obscene.


Well the guy from NY I think has a point in somethings but then how did they let the GTA's in their state??

They can't/won't be able to ban this game due to the disclaimer.

Politicians need to point fingers at the grandparents and parents who ridicule these games. By law, retailers are supposed to check for ID when selling mature titles and if it is being sold to a parent the cashier/retailer is required to bring attention to the disclaimer and the M rating.

It is these same idiot parents who are ignoring the warning that is explained by the retailer and GAME ITSELF, and then ridicule the retailer due to their stupidity. You have no idea how many times we are dispatched to retail facilities after christmas to detail a hostile parent who was to ignorant to pay attention and gave into their 10 year old brat....thats when we tell them to get lost...

sorry..just a little annoyed by it

25 can't be banned especially in the US. There are far worse games then this one. GTA was a different story and that didn't get banned in the US. Banning a game would take so much money away and this company produces the games in America so duh?
