Menanggapi tentang berita di Nurani.com
Bahwa Grand Theft Auto mengajarkan anak untuk Zina dan perbuatan perbuatan jelek lain nya.
Well, basically game tersebut memang mengandung unsur kekerasan, sex dan perilaku yang tadi baik.
Namun, Rock Star (Produsen GTA Series) menargetkan konsumer nya adalah orang dewasa (18+ / Adults Only), bukan anak anak.
Dikemasan game tersebut juga sudah ada rating by Age yang sebelum pasti di seleksi dahulu. kalau di Indonesia nya seperti lembaga sensor.
Kalau di Game Original, Rating yang di label kan adalah rating sebenar nya.
Namun di Game Bajakan, kebanyakan di ganti, bahkan ada yang lebih parah mengganti dari label A (Adults Only) menjadi E (Everyone)
Para orang tua harus nya sadar akan hal ini, dan harus lebih aware lagi dalam memilih / membelikan permainan untuk anak nya.

Games with this rating contain content which the board believes is unsuitable for people under 18 years of age; they can contain stronger sexual themes and content, graphic nudity, or extreme levels of violence—higher than the "Mature" rating can accommodate. This rating typically covers adult video games; the ESRB has rarely issued the "Adults Only" rating for violence alone.
