All you have to do is make a face every time you see an object that offends. I'm a vegetarian and I make lots of faces when I have to find meat products. Then I go happily on with the game!

I'm not a smoker or drinker, that being said, games that include cigarettes or alcohol is not offensive to me nor does it influence my behavior. It never has and never will.

This is just a joke, but your post makes me think of the old saying, " Your face is gonna freeze like that!"...

I believe all artwork indicating that females have mammary glands should be banned.

1) Indications of gender are sexist, and WORSE:
2) Might incite the virginal or monogamous to engage in, um, something that ought not to be done anyway except for the purpose of making babies.

</sarcasm off>

Please, game developers, don't let the PC squawking deprive you of whatever vision you have for a game.

And as yet another ex-smoker, I haven't been forced to run to the local ciggie shop by considerable exposure to games with Smoking Paraphernalia in them. Neither have my dog, my daughter (another ex-), or her cats.

Also, the upshot of what amounts to a Sin Tax on cigarettes has had an obvious and very bad effect, and that is the creation of a black market which now is an important source of income for terrorists and other Bad Guys. This is a matter of well-known record. It also is contradictory, because it ends up causing the government to rely on the public to KEEP smoking in order not to lose the revenue.

I can only guess you are a Brobama fan. Quit whining. It is after all ONLY a game. Find somewhere else to play and whine

Yikes...get over it. We are grown ups here...dont let YOUR kids play games that YOU think are not appropriate. (by the way, I agree that nobody should actually smoke in real life.

I agree that people need to stop blaming games for their own desires or actions. Anything could technically be offensive to someone out there. Don't take away the enjoyment or richness of a game for other people just cause some people are offended by the drop of a hat. And yes, if you don't like a game or don't want your kids playing it, don't play or don't let them play it. I guess I have nothing new to add to this topic except my opinion. If every realistic reference got banned, things would be pretty boring.
