    I thought they had to have a code or something, but that the modifications were very adult, and accessible to minors quite easily. I don't know what the original rating on the game is....but the ability to turn it into porn, in my opinion, should most certainly have been disclosed. Sure for you, A, it's great. You aren't someone's ten year old son who is playing this game nonstop. The person that purchased the game for the ten year old son HAS to know that modifying the game and making it adult is possible.... don't you think?

    This country is so damn conservative. You can see it in their general anti-porn attitude (yet the same people who are pushing these amendments love porn themselves most likely). Just like those christian conservatives who push a "marriage protection act" yet have been divorced several times or have mistresses on the side.

    It is a downloadable mod. However, the problem isn't the fact that the game can be modified to include sex scenes, which by the way are definitely not porn. I've seen them and they don't really show anything. It is the parent's fault for 1. allowing their children to play a game that's rated for adults unsupervised and 2. allowing their children unsupervised access to the internet enabling them to locate and download the mod.

    This all started because some grandmother freaked out when she found out the game she had bought for her grandson contained (gasp!) sex scenes. Presumably this is because violent car-jackings involving cold-blooded murder and fleeing from police are perfectly acceptable behaviors but sex isn't. :eyes

    As a sidenote:
    It is quite possible to make almost every character in every game nude if you just want to. For example, it's very easy to make Sims & Sims2 into a big nudist colony. And how do you do it? The same exact way, you download a mod.

    Okay Puss, you're right. I looked up the game and the rating, and yes, the game belongs in the hands of someone who's old enough to see it all, with or without the mod. Sorry.
