7 Manhunt

Manhunt

Ultra-Violent stealth TPS game where the object is to kill gang members as violently as possible If the player uses the PS2 USB Microphone feature, the player can use the sound of his or her own voice to distract in-game enemies. This in turn added a new twist to the stealth elements, as the actual player would have to refrain from unwanted noises such as talking, coughing, etc. or risk creating inadvertent "in-game noise". Banned in New Zealand, Australia, Germany

8 Manhunt: Further Controvercy

Manhunt: Further Controvercy

From BBC.com: Warren Leblanc, 17, repeatedly stabbed 14-year-old Stefan Pakeerah after luring him to a Leicester park to steal from him on 27 February. Stefan's mother, Giselle, a research nurse, had to leave court when the evidence in the case became too harrowing. Following the hearing she said her son's killer had mimicked a game called Manhunt, developed by Edinburgh-based Rockstar North, in which the players score points for violent killings. However: A Leicestershire constabulary spokesperson said: "Police investigations did not uncover any connections to the computer game. The motive for the incident was robbery.

Violence and Video Games

Mark Griffiths Nottingham Trent University The one consistent finding is that the majority of the studies on very young childrenas opposed to those in their teens upwardstend to show that children do become more aggressive after either playing or watching a violent video game. However, all of these come from the use of one particular research methodology (i.e., observation of childrens free play).

No However, the current stance in the U.S. seems somewhat backwards. We seem to covet violent media, and shun sexual content Which is really worse? Both can be presented in better or worse ways In the end, the decision should rest with the parents
