Also if they do get the games and are under 18 then parents fail.

Nuff said
You're entitled to your opinion...and I don't fault you for that....but calling someone dumb because they don't agree with you is really childish.

I do agree with you about the parents. Parents should know what their kids are playing...And if they have questions about a game, then they should do some research. With the age of he internet and all that it has to offer, a parent claiming ignorance is inexcusable.

In the age of parental controls on absolutely ALL forms of entertainment makes it even less excusable.

Saint's Row bothered me more, since it seemed to glorify gang culture in a more serious way... same reason I hate most rap music. Even then though, I believe very strongly in free speech and free expression... bring it on, I can choose what to play.

Same here. I like listening to the radio in GRA4 because they have a few funny spoofs.
