"Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas"
Hard to believe that's what passes for entertainment these days.
You sound disappointed :-)
My son explained it this way to me and I suspect he's probably right. During the development of software, some of the programmers play around a bit. They will write code for fun that's never meant to be released or doesn't make it past the censors. The code never gets removed but is somehow supressed so the average schmo with his keyboard and mouse clicks won't run into the stuff. Now steps in your non-average schmo that knows this kind of thing is common and is obsessed with finding the hidden treasure. Many sodas and bags of chips later ( and at 4:00 or 5:00 AM), the bleary eyed rascal hits paydirt...with emphasis on ''dirt''. You can bet the programmers who develop these types of games aren't tithing from their paychecks to the Mormon Church.;)
That's what I have been reading,
some of the young game programmers may work on a particular game for over a year or 2,3 and will horse around seeing who will outdo who in creating sub graphics, not intending they be published in the final product.
Well, since 4 million copies of the game was sold last year, this publicity gives it another shot in the arm, something like the old days of reading the 'condemmed list of movies' when I was a kid, let my relatives know which ones they wanted to see..Gone with the Wind.
not just games...
a few years ago there was a bit of a row over a couple of frames in the "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" semi-cartoon film. Seems the cartoonists put in one frame in the middle of the sequence of the female cartoon character getting out of taxi as she stands up on the sidewalk, her skirt blows up over her head and she has no underwear on. The cartoon image was supposedly quite anatomically explicit. But they slipped in just one frame and when you saw the movie in the theater or on video, you'd never see it. But if you had the original version of the laserdisk release, you could navigate the player frame by frame to this image. Then when the film was ported to DVD, mysteriously that frame isn't there anymore. Go figure.
I saw such a frame on a VHS movie
It happened fast, but I thought, wait a second, did I see what I thought I saw? Anyway, I found out.
My nephew is into video game violence
as a physician specializing in medical ethics (whatever that is). I know he's been on Good Morning America describing these games, their affects, and the fact that their real nature isn't understood by parents of teens who by them. Since I never got further in gaming than Tetris, I cannot speak from personal experience with them but Kevin is quite well versed and opinionated. I'm not sure about the kid myself. He gets paid to play these games instead of paying for them and then writes articles bashing them to keep the checks coming in.;) Here's a couple links to his work.
Thanks, he may not be reaching
parents who do not take time to read as they could be preoccupied with working and other things. I try to play games accumulated before letting the grandkids play. Daughter in another State usually ask me when she buys a game for her kids to see if I have.
Art is a still of a naked girl, either a photograph or paint
As soon as it starts moving, that's porno. LOL
Hey, perhaps that's the secret of Bill Clinton's roving eye
Maybe Hilary didn't move.
That's what Jay Leno said
last night.... it was so hot in NY that Bill had to jump in bed with Hillary to cool off.
(NT) Thank you, thank you, thank you.But seriously folks ...
(NT) Youll have to get the patch and give us an update. ;)
Gee, I did think about doing that...
and also viewing the Paris Hilton xxxx porno video that is on the internet, but my grandkids use my computers when they come over and I have made it a point to not have any porno on them. Maybe I can figure a way to do and then delete, course the game specs only fit my main computer.
told the wife she just ruined your surprise vacation when she caught you googling the Paris Hilton...
LOL.. good idea...just checking on Hilton Hotels. I like
the commercial where wife walks in popping hubby's dream bubble with him holding four aces at the Vegas casino poker table, while on the internet looking for vacation spots.
Then his other 'bubble' while surfing the internet looking at a Hawaii beach for vacation and seeing wife with hunk of a guy teaching wife to surfboard, saying lets not go to the beach for this vacation.
