If you don't like it, don't play it

Recently on MSNBC.com, I read an article about the game "Manhunt 2." Many have been trying to get people to not purchase the game, and even though it has been modified in order to be released with an "M" rating, it is still banned in the United Kingdom. It was obviously not made to be played by young children, but if they do get a hold of it or are allowed to play it, hopefully their parents will discuss the content with them.

If someone has an issue with this game, that's fine; everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, people shouldn't try to push their beliefs or opinions on others by trying to ban, edit or keep people from buying something. People put effort into creating things, and there are people who are not offended by it and would like to purchase it.

The same thing applies to any books, music, movies, etc. It is simple: If you don't like it, don't buy it. If you don't want your children to play the game, tell them. If your children still play it anyway, there is a problem, but it is not that the game is available in stores.
