hello everyone Shadow here, i am here to rant today about some of the biggest idiots i have ever seen.
first of all, lets talk about Jack Thompson: this idiot wants to get rid of video games, he seems to think video games are for childern, and that violent games should be censored, and that they cause murder, violence, etc. news flash idiot, violence has been around since before the birth of Jesus Christ, LOOOOOOONG before the birth of Jesus Christ. 2, he considers himself a video game expert, what the ****? now, in what way is this moron a game expert, first of all, he doesn't play video games, second of all, he doesn't understand how times have changed, third of all, i read recently the age of the average gamer is above 21, so video games are definitly NOT just for kids anymore.
next, we talk about Soccer Moms: these group of idiots are hell bent on *****ing and moaning about every little thing that may seemoffensive or graphic in any shape or form. they try to get games such as GTA: San Andreas banned or censored, now i may dislike GTA, that is bull. they also ***** and moan when they buy their kid(s) a M rated game, then see the gameplay and then go off the ****ing walls about how they didn't know that was in the game..........really? so you didn't see the Giant M on the front? or the content on the game on the back? which is there specifically for you? or did the game magically fly into your cart, magically paid for itself, and magically went home with you? either you are blind of illiterate, the ESRB, although not the greatest raters in the world, have been around since at least the NES, and they tell you whether or not a game is suitable for your kids, and don't listen to Jack Thompson for he has no idea what hes talking about, he insisted games were bad..........and got fired as a lawyer, so i'd stop listening to this moron.
now, 4kids: behold, the bane of all anime. this dubbing company takes editing and censoring SO FAR, there are episodes of Pokemon that were not aired in America, POKEMON, in what way can that show harm kids? ZOMG, a guy put a revolver to Ash's head. you may take shows not suitable for kids and bastardize them, but for god's sake, that show was a kids show to begin with. they also make MANY alterations to anime, riceballs? nope, they are donuts now, and the ones the ****ed up the worst are Tokyo Mew Mew and One Piece. in One Piece, they pretty much censored every weapon in the show, the made poison darts into poison SUCTION CUPS, they turned a black pirate midget into a white pirate midget (that also means they are RACIST!), they did so many things to that anime alone, and Tokyo Mew Mew, or as 4kids calls them Mew Mew Power, they changed a crapload of things, the British scientist? now mexican to keep the language barrier (.....British to Mexican? wtf? also, im not sure of this bit so i may be wrong about that.) and they changed MANY names, and to top off all anime...........they give them HORRIBLE opening songs, One Piece? a pirate rap (wtf?), Tokyo Mew Mew? a fruity little number that makes me sick to simply REMEMBER it. i could go on for hours with this one.
i was gonna hold off on one, but theres another ticking me off. Religous nuts, these people who take religion too far, and by taking it to far, often complain about certain games, movies, t.v. shows, etc. including a show called book of david after its first episode got cancelled because Jesus was in it and WAS UNDERSTANDING. oh come on, i know for a fact Jesus was understanding, and for the love of God, every time something is translated into another language, the mess up a couple words, mistranslate entire meanings, and overall make some parts confusing, nothing is excluded from that, not video games, not books, not anime, and for you religous nuts, the bible isn't a exception, in fact, its been translated many times before it was even in German, which it was in German before English. so for those of you who believe everything in the bible or whatever your holy book or whatever you read i, remember, there is always at least ONE mistranslation, so not everything your reading is how it was originally.
i got a few other things i wish to rant about, but ill do that another time.
