Firstly i must state that i am against censorship. I am deeply saddened that my great country for years has told me what is/is not suitable in films.
Half of my DVD collection are Region 1 imports to get around the stupid censorship of seemingly random things.
We all know the MH2 debacle in the UK so i wont get into that.
However the reason i want MH2 to stay banned is a completely selfish reason that i am not proud of. I know by wishing this i am going against everything i stand for but ffs for my own sanity i hope it sticks.
Yes. I know it is considered "trendy" by the tabloids to bitch about chavs, but seriously working in videogame retail in the UK you get to witness them first hand.
MH2 if it ever comes out will instantly be number one in the sales charts. I can garauntee it, and Rockstar knows it. After the original was pulled off sale by one shop, sale sky rocketed:
"IZ DIS THAT BANNED GAME????? SHIT IT MUST BE ACE!!!!!!!"
Who gives a fuck if the game is any good or not. I am just sick of stupid fucks buying games because they are supposed to be "naughty"
You wouldnt believe the amount of people that came in asking for "Bully" only for me to say "You mean Canis Canem Edit?" and they give me a look like i have raped there mothers.
They wanted the game Bully where you went around bullying kids and shitting on there faces (or whatever the tabloids claimed at the time) not some faggy "Canis Canem Edit" latin shite.
If i could punch in the face every parent who i have had to blatantly sold them 18 rated games to then give them to there small pushchaired child, then i would be in prison right now probably getting bummed.
Of course again i am being a hypocrit. For when i was a young lad i searched out of the infamous 1980 tabloid "Video nasties" such as:
So i can see the attraction in seeing what her majestys government deem socially unnaceptable for me.
It just all boils down to me wishing that Manhunt 2 was somehow an amazing game that deserves to be released, something that i could get behind, something that will make a landmark change if it ever gets released.
At the moment though its just a overhyped shitty stealth game.
