    Bringing snowflakery to a whole new level.

    I've played every GTA released to date and not once have I wanted to go car jack, murder, or rob someone.

    Just wowza.

    Some are skeptical of Rep. Williams claims however. Columnist Joe Jurado of the Root points out that the franchise is hardly new and widely distributed, with the latest iteration, GTA V, released eight years ago and having sold 130 million copies. He adds that attempting to ban the game would be incredibly difficult writing, "Let me entertain this stupid-ass notion for a second. Say they're successful and get the game off store shelves in Illinois. What are you going to do about digital sales? You're telling me that the state of Illinois is willing to expend the time, money, and technical know-how to block the game off of PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Epic Games, and the Rockstar storefront? I've worked for the state government, and I know damn well those Windows XP-using assholes ain't built for this life."

    The online stores would stop sales themselves to comply with law. That doesn't stop a user from finding ways around it though.

    This remind me of some old episode of I think Tyra Banks where some guy's wife dragged him onto the show over his WoW addiction, said if he doesn't quit WoW she's leaving him.

    So he's like "Ok." and then he "quits" WoW by breaking the disc in half on TV and then all the women cheer.

    Pretty sure he went home and just got back on WoW after. I hope.


    I can't find the full version, but it's from this:

    Yathink? Yathink webstores would stop game sales to a single US state, just because that state changed a law? I dunno, I think they'd object alot. In the name of dollars.

    Yes. They do it based on zipcode. They already do it for some products, namely states that don't allow alcohol to be sold through mail. They'd of course try to appeal the law, but unless there is in an injunction, they aren't going to purposely violate the law.

    They already do that for many things.

    Also, they collect different sales taxes, based on location of the customer.

    If you don't understand how that works, I feel for you. We already knew you were an idiot, though.
