Florence Cohen, an 85 year old grandmother from New York has filed a lawsuit against Rockstar Games over the hidden sexual content in the game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Although the game is rated "M" for mature, for audiences aged 17 and older, she decided that the game's extreme violence was no problem for her 14 year old grandson. But now that it turns out that there is sexual content in there, Cohen is running to the courts to claim unspecified damages.
I had hoped that that Hillary Clinton's crusade to protect the children would be the lowest point in the game's saga. She persuaded the FCC to investigate the game maker over false advertising claims: they didn't say that there were porn scenes hidden in the game. Never mind that those were hidden from the general public and that they have to install a patch that game modders have developed.
Honestly, there is nothing to this case. The sexual content is hidden in the game. You have to willingly install the patch to access it. And I bet that by doing so you violate the maker's copyrights.
Is Cohen also going to sue her internet provider once she finds out that her grandson can visit porn websites? Of course internet porn doesn't come on a CD, but it can reach her computer through spyware, without her knowledge or consent. And internet porn is easier to obtain than finding, downloading and installing a game patch.
