full frontal male nudity in the new Grand Theft Auto


Parents groups are warning about explicit footage in a new Grand Theft Auto video game, even as a California law banning such material from being sold to children was struck down as unconstitutional.

Common Sense Media, a nonprofit group that reviews games, movies and other entertainment for children, sent out a message late Thursday warning against Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost & Damned.

"Heavy violence, strong language -- and now nudity," the group said. "Thought this M-rated game series couldn't go any lower? Think again." Common Sense Media reviewer Marc Saltzman said that The Lost & Damned, developed by Rockstar Games and published by Take-Two Interactive Software, contained depictions of full-frontal male nudity. It also included some graphically violent scenes, including one in which a gang member's face is pressed against the spinning wheel of a motorcycle -- splatter! The game, Saltzman said, "should be kept away -- far away -- from children."

The Lost & Damned is a $19.99 add-on game, released Tuesday, that's available only as a download on Microsoft's Xbox 360 game console. To play, one must already have Grand Theft Auto IV, which launched in April with little protest from parental groups. This version offers ...

... new characters, weapons, vehicles and music, among other things.

Both titles are rated Mature, a voluntary designation given by the industry-funded Entertainment Software Ratings Board. That means the board recommends that only people 17 or older play the title, and most retailers choose not to sell such titles to minors. The board also noted that The Lost & Damned contains "blood, intense violence, nudity, strong language, strong sexual content and use of drugs and alcohol."

Lawmakers from California, New York and other states have tried various measures to prevent minors from getting their hands on Mature-rated video games, but their efforts have met stiff resistance from federal courts.

Today, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit upheld a District Court ruling from 2007 that invalidated a California law banning the sale or rental of violent games to those younger than 18. The appeals court agreed with the trial court that the law was a violation of the 1st Amendment, which protects free speech. Similar laws in Illinois, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan and Louisiana have been struck down by federal courts on 1st Amendment grounds.

Is digital penis really a selling point to the target audience for Grand Theft Auto?

What gets me is that with everything going on in the world, this is what people do with their fucking time, rather than being parents and just a) keeping it out of the house and/or b) bringing up your kids to know the difference between right/wrong fantasy/reality.

Kids will get it, anyway...older siblings and stores that don't give a fuck. I remember owning DMX when I was 12/13. But, I was raised right so I'm not a fucking murderer or some shit.

Yeah, I really don't understand that shit.

I mean, the last controversy was a softcore bj right? Big fucking deal. I'd rather my kid be seeing bjs and getting bj's than blowing motherfuckers away, running over pedestrians and beating prostitutes to death.

Why is it gay? There's no real difference from female nudity in a game. Some people want to see naked women, some people want to see naked dudes. That doesn't make it gay, it just means you want to see something else.




Do you know what a love letter is? Its a bullet from a fucking gun. Straight through your heart.

I never met a chick that thinks video games are cool. Only dudes. If I am dating a chick and she's like "lets play the new blahbahblah, they have dicks in it." I will fart in her face and tell her that dougnen and dragons is not real life. Seriously, videogames and chicks don' tmix. And if they do your with the wrong chick.

Chicks that play video games with dicks in it, is a chick that looks like Kevin Smith and orders double whoppers with cheese and extra barbecue sauce and a side of onion rings.

HAHAHA.

For reals, hilarious.

No, dicks in video games marketed to dudes IS gay. Real gay. In fact, that there's dick in GTA4 proves the homoeroticism of the whole gangsta bullshit in the first place.

I think its funny that theres a dick in the game.

The character is a sleezy politician and hes getting a "massage" from some girl when your character walks in. He has her leave and he gets up to talk and boing! there is is. I was a little shocked, but then I laughed.... I dont think its gay or not gay or any of that... I think its funny!

I beg to differ...




This girl is a hardcore gamer that kicks my ass in Halo 3 all the time. Does not look like Kevin Smith.

My GF is not into video games but she likes paying Rock Band with me (at least singing-wise).
