I dont know about the others but the difference is the games I like that may get censored aren't cringe inducing creepy weebfests that are pedophilic in nature.

no they are mass murder games where you kill people left and right in often gruesome ways...

you are either against censorship or for it. if you pick and choose what you defend and what you don't defend even tho both games don't violate any local laws and don't harm any real person you are a hypocrite and your opinion shall be discarded in the future.

in the 90s the same argument has been put against Mortal Kombat and Night Trap, because people who never played a video game and didn't know shit about the people playing video games thought Mortal Kombat would turn people into murderers and Night Trap would turn them into rapists.
or like a GTA SA mod made ignorant idiots want to ban it, a mod that enabled a minigame which was also pretty harmless honestly

also, the majority of the girls in Gal Gun have pretty to very pronounced boobs... something every pedo loves of course and is not at all the exact opposite of it... nah, why be intellectually honest when you can throw the pedo bomb around.
just like a certain other forum loves to just throw the transphobe and nazi tags on everything they deem censorship worthy.

I tend to think in a more granular way than "you are either for it or against it". Life doesn't work that way. All media since the beginning of recorded history has included antagonists whether it was books, movies, short stories, TV shows etc. And the vast majority of the time these antagonists are defeated in some way, many times in a violent manner.

The difference between these "mass murder" games and ones that sexualize school age girls is that the violence has a purpose and the morality of such violence is typically justifiable since, again, you are eliminating enemies that are a threat to your existence in the game. Things get a little iffy when it comes to something like gta where you are running over pedestrians or whatever, but even then those actions may fall in line with the amoral behavior of the lead character.

Where is the moral justification behind sexualizing school girls? Looking up their skirts? Checking out school aged girls panties? I mean what the fuck man, I can't believe I have to even break it down haha.

Can't believe there's another side to this. Yes, I am FOR censorship when it addresses the sexualization of minors.

Lmao, all the fiveheads in this thread saying "it's either all or nothing bubs! Support this game or you are against free speech!"

Maybe you can trick your high school friends with this gotcha argument but I hate to inform you that it does not work in the real world with functioning adult members of society. There is a line, and that line gets crossed with the sexualization (or implied sexualization) of minors.

This is NOT the free speech hill to die on. This game should not be defended nor accepted in a civilized society.

Not my kind of game but I’m not a fan of censorship, I can understand why Sony and now Microsoft do this, it’s clearly PR. Neither want to be known as the company that had this on their systems. Which is sad, because I think censorship is just wrong. If someone wants to play this, fucking let them. AFAIK it’s not breaking any laws.

So I don't agree with censoring sexual content but I do agree with censoring pedo anime content. It’s not really a slippery slope of future censorship to me because we can all agree that there should be some kind of limit and we’re really just discussing where that line should be.

The issue is that high school girls in anime type content occupy this weird gray area where if they look 18 it's usually okay. But they also often don’t...

So I'm not really surprised that platform holders are taking the stance that they are. Like I like and own the Dead or Alive and Senran Kagura series but there are some girls with ultra petite figures that I could really do without since they look like loli substitutes and that’s gross to me.

Needs its own rating, Rated W for Weeb.

But anyway, it shouldn't be censored from what I can see. Even though I don't care about this game, not allowing this sets a bad precedent IMO (I have seen many things in games I can't imagine what it so terribly egregious in this game), as these decisions may slowly lead to self imposed soft censorship.

It's easy for these guys to talk behind a screen but if we were talking in person, you could put a face on who would actually die on this hill in public.

If you were going to buy this game you’re most likely a pervert anyway, so I have no problem with this. Jesus Christ it’s sick that there’s a market for this and people defending these types of games.
You all and others share same view (pervert High School Anime girl game = real life Pedophilia).
It's 1000% better to making petition / open letter to your rating board countries if YOU ARE REALLY CARE ABOUT THIS rather than supporting arbitrary internal screening by platform holder you now.
Please don't be hypocrite and do the right thing, so all remaining filth Pedo game at PC and Switch can be purged too.

I can't believe how some of you are defending censorship. It's appalling and you should be ashamed of yourselves.
The subject matter of this game is irrelevant. What matters is that these things always start small. They push more and more with little things like these until eventually they decide to kick it up a notch. At which point they begin putting in "warnings" on seemingly harmless media that these are now viewed as "products of their time" and should no longer be accepted by today's "societal norms". Then they begin butchering it in releases/remasters (like Sam and Max) and completely sanitize them of the stuff "they" don't agree with.
Where do you think they'll go next? I'm already seeing "cancel culture" catching up to Last of Us 2, which is currently a mainstream title. Where do you think they'll go next? Perhaps they'll come for your favorite thing next and take that away from you. Hell. They've already destroyed comic books. They've destroyed Hollywood. Perhaps they'll destroy anime next. What will be left after that?

Americans preaching about amorality of these games.
You know, America, home of the 'beauty pageants', land of the 'incest pornography', country of 'shoot em up school events by kids trained on fps' and nation of 'epstein killed himself'.

Nintendo will be the next domino to fall. (Probs just NA and EU eshops for now)

I'm phoning them right now tbh, the stinky smelly smash community and their disgusting behavior towards children warrants an audit and 2nd look of all content on the platform.

Getting bowser on the line, brb

Don't watch at work lol.

It's pretty damn cringe, but no more cringe than three lowlifes robbing, killing, and running people over with cars in a fake American west coast city. 🤔
I mean, this looks like trash to me, but if of someone likes it then they can go ahead of course. Girls jumping around in skimpy clothing doing weird things shouldnt be reason to censor anything. Especially when you can decapitate people in another which somehow is totally fine and in line with MS’ vision of “feeling at home”.

They need to grow some BALLS already and take advantage of what Sony isn't doing... Nintendo out of the other 2 isn't concerned with censoring. If MS wants to sell a few more consoles, they need to follow Nintendo's example.

One MAJOR factor also is that Nintendo's head office is still in Japan, and top decisions come from there. They haven't made the mistake of moving the decision making power to Commiefornia.

Anyway after seeing shit like Battletoads, this should come to no surprise to anyone. Microsoft how well did Battletoads sell? I still haven't bought that shit, SOR4 got my money instead at least that was true to the source material. Still haven't bought your shitty consoles either, nor am I going to after seeing your projected future. Here's my last piece of advice, although in your case that may take awhile:

If it stops child sexualisation, I’m all for censoring and I can understand why it isn’t allowed.

Do people not get concerned that these types of products just enable certain types of people.

No because it doesn’t work that way. Do all people who own a gun go out in a murdering spree?

People with a gun are more likely to shoot someone then someone with no gun

People who enjoy pedo related content are most certainly in one way or another interested in it, which makes them sick fucks.

IF YOU THINK DRAWING PEDO SHIT IS OKAY THEN PLS IGNORE/BLOCK ME BECAUSE I WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR RETARDED ASS
