Is there something worse than ''hot Coffee?''

Yes there is!

It goes by the name of Naughty America. Is is what happens when you take "the sims" and pour some "hot coffee" into it. The purpose of this game is to meet other people online, be friends, build relationships and basically, give the player the ability to express the "physical emotions"... digitally. You can purchase furniture, and appartment and clothing. Furthermore users are given the ability to design their character's "assets". Now, if this doesn't M or A rating by the ESRB, we will be seeing alot of concerned parents. Which brings me to my question, how do make sure children don't become exposed to this form of entertainment. Also, does anyone else see any other risky factors that may arise from this game?

You make sure children don't access material like this by...

...having these things called "parents."

Their job is to "supervise" children until they are old enough to make decisions based on their own judgement.

considering how busy parents are now a days, most of them aren't able to watch their children every minute of the day.. sooo.. what's another way?

With Jasmes

It is not the Governments responsibility to tell us what games to play. It is us, or, in the case of children, their parents.

For example, due to the stupidity of the game classification system in Australia, if a game's rating is R (or it changes to R, like GTA Vice City, where that 'scene' was discovered) it automatically gets taken off the shelves.

If children get their hands on that material, its THE PARENTS responsibily. If their is unsuitable content, they should be adviced, but the games should not be restricted for adult gamers.

Thats my rant....Oh, and I'm 13, if that makes a difference to your perception of my opinion (which it shouldn't, but meh)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
