Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Tom and Jerry creeped me out.
They were so very violent - almost for the sake of violence. The RoadRunner cartoons weren't like that. But in either case, in cartoons the characters get up and play another day. AFAIK, they don't in these games. In most games I've seen, there are no significant consequences for smashing up your car or blasting the wrong person.

It's not a 1:1 causal thing, but children and young adults are influenced by the things they see and experience. Kids have to be taught how to become bullies and criminals, it seems to me.

I don't know anything about GTA-SA, so I can't really comment on it. But I personally take the ratings under serious consideration when getting games for friend's kids.

There are always exceptions, of course. Luck!

Cheers,
Scott.
New Yup - that's why "Itchy and Scratchy" hits home so good.
New Exactly. I&S is so funny because they're T&J^3.
I think it's hilarious because it's so over the top, but I think they're trying to argue against violent cartoons too (in a strange way).

I like the fact that the Simpsons almost always shows Bart and Lisa's reaction when Itchy and Scratch is on. It gives me a slightly creepy feeling to see the kids having such a good time watching such gruesome violence. I can't help but feel they're trying to let people know that children are affected by such things.

Scratchy always comes back, so that mitigates it a little.

Cheers,
Scott.
