Vito on Sony censorship

yeah i honestly rather have all this weeb SHEIT wiped from this planet,
underage looking girls in barely any clothes GTFO with that pedo shit.
Oh please, on that same note, how bout we ban all fetishes in the world? How is anyone whose into these type of characters any worse than someone who likes to roleplay with their SO, and have them dress up as a school girl, or something similar. I am just so tired of people calling for banning anime girls. It's one of the few things in the world that I like, and I feel like my interests are always being attacked. How about I start behaving irrational, and call for bans on things I don't like? Can we ban fucking football? Something that has actually led to physical harm and disability on part of the athletes involved? What's that? I'm talking crazy talk for banning something like football, a sport filled with aggressive physical contact. Nah, that's just crazy talk from me. Let's start getting rational, and banning fucking anime girls, because some artist likes using their artistic talent to create visually appealing characters. Now THAT's disgusting.

It's an art that literally hurts no one. I personally don't like or care for the overly sexualized stuff much, but I still appreciate adorable anime characters. Just because I find a character adorable does not equal I want to fuck them either. Yet that's what people who don't appreciate anime always seem to see when they see an attractive character. They assume that people are just pervy on them, and that there is no other potential reason one might like them, other than sexual deviant reasons. It's not always the same damn thing. I find my cat adorable, but I don't want to fuck my cat. People find their children adorable, but they don't want to fuck their kids. Some bad apples, which are a hugely small percentage compared to normal people have to ruin everything for everyone?

that place seem to love pedo shit why don't you go ?
Why are you defending pedo shit?
I'm not defending "pedo shit". I'm calling out an annoying "I'm so offended" posts. If you don't like it, don't play it. No need to for projection and virtue signalling.

Actually, the game isn't even "pedo shit", because there are no pre-pubescent characters in it.

Not defending actual underage characters depicted lewdly but I do recall from a certain thread(the name escapes me) that they were also censoring their PS themes and that included non anime ones that depicted grown women.

Also DOA Extreme 3 got censored a bit too, they aren’t underage.

I would rather we ban football, that’s one thing I can’t bloody stand. Turns men into utter knobs.
I agree, I hate the sport, and I hate that it's somehow socially acceptable to be a complete moron who obsesses over sports fandom, but if you're a fan of something related to "geek" culture, then you're a complete loser. But I digress.

I guess I wouldn't ever really say I would ban it, because what I try to get across to people is that we need to stop being judgmental of things we don't like because it doesn't conform to what I like, or what I believe in. Especially when you're talking about things from completely different cultures. The problem with the internet, which at the same time is part of what makes it great, is that we are exposed to every thing from all parts of the globe. For me, it's exposed me to all the aspects of Japanese culture I might have not been introduced to before, and what I fell in love with. For those who are comfortable in their little bubbles, and think their way is the "right" way, anything they don't approve automatically should be banned. That's horseshit I think and needs to be discouraged, yet there are people in parts of the internet, especially REEEra, that want anything they don't approve to be abolished. It's fucking stupid.

It's hard to be sympathetic to someone's cause when the reason they want to end censorship is so they get to look at scantly dressed underage girls.

This is not free speech.

Also, just get your fix on PC or something.

Some are hurtful for their victims... There is a difference between fetishism for BDSM between consenting adults and liking kids or pre-teen girls.

It's their choice to censor or not and what to censor or not, as the pplatform holder, they have that right.
If you don't agree, don't buy their products.
PC is very censor free, and when it isn't there are always mods.

Well I only got curious after you quoted the other post.

Having pre teen bodies on characters that are mature is pretty shady and a alarming way to be able to accept pedo things.

You can't have it both ways. Either you are against censorship or not. Today they censor something you don't like. Tomorrow they'll censor something you do.

There are laws against actual "pedo crap." No need for arbitrary censorship.

Looks like you have never seen a real-life Japanese lady in her twenties.

But shouldn't the law against pedo crap be ruled on pedo stuff like this?

On one hand it was stupid decision by Sony, it backfired in their face.
And on the other hand pedo bait games like Criminal Girls is a piss poor porno masquerading as a DRPG.
Senran Kagura was never even mediocre let alone decent or good, extreme big boobs are disgusting, gimme something like this or GTFO.

You're very easily disgusted.

Thing is, your personal taste is absolutely irrelevant when it comes to censorship.
Try having a daughter or niece aged 10-12 and not being disgusted by this
And this was on the "" censored "" NA version.
But sure thing Keep crying CENSORSHIP, whenever these kind of games get banned

I am always suspicious of people who go that hard against something pretty insignificant as young looking anime characters.

I would love the opinion of a psychologist on this.
They probably consider it gateway material. Might be the reason why there is stronger censorship on it now.

Fun video, but he's missing the real coup-de-grace on Omega Labyrinth Z being the refusal of Germany's USK ratings board to pass it, at which point it became fairly pointless to even try releasing it in Northern Europe.

I don't play what I am disgusted by, or even what I don't care for, which is why I did not play Criminal Girls. I don't demand it censored unless it's illegal. Censorship is a despicable thing.

The funniest part is that you shake your angry fist at large breasts, and in the same post you bring up Granblue Fantasy as a positive example, which is literally chock full of cow-girls (literally) with enormous breasts (and the opposite end of the spectrum as well) and is one of the most fanservice-heavy franchises in Japan. Talk about not knowing what one is talking about.

I don't hate big breasted characters i hate E sized ones since they aren't sexy especially on teens like in SK, now Taki from SC on the other hand, YUM.
C-D Cup is the best.

Fuck censorship and authoritarian puritans.

This isn't about protecting REAL children, because no real child will be saved by banning sexy anime girls. It's 100% about enforcing your own ignorant morality aka 'i find this gross, make it go away' and nothing else.

If you don't like it, DON'T BUY IT, but stop ruining something that other people enjoy.

And again:

FICTIONAL sexy underage anime girls are not REAL underage girls. They've got nothing in common, and one doesn't represent the other. Read this if you still refuse to understand:

If I made an anime game defending Hitler views and actions in WW2 it would be totally OK because FICTIONAL is not REAL, right?

let me be very clear here.
using censorship on games or allowing pedophilia are 2 very very different things.
1) Correct, literally nobody is for legalising pedophilic acts

2) This whole 'b-but pedos!' argument is dishonest bs, because the people who want sexy anime girls censored for the most part are people who celebrate Mythra's censorship in Smash Bros or the exclusion of Mai Shiranui, both anime girls that don't look prepubescent AT ALL.

Sony's censorship is proven to not be about that. It's clearly about authoritarian puritan values. Fuck them and their supporters.
