Hitman 2 has been taken off the shelves according to the sun newspaper today, the game will be brought back on sale once the developers (eidos) have taken out ONE level that caused offence. The level is where you have to kill loads of hindu's and apparantly this happened in reality a while back.

Exactly. It's all made up - completely made up, but yet people still find the time to take offence at it.

Some people just love to stir up trouble. I'm not neccessarily just saying this about this Hitman 2 incident, but people in general will always seem to find something that is offensive to them. It's as if they go looking for it.

World these days = far too serious.

But then books and films are fictional?

But people take offence.

Whatever the race.

Get a life, you mongs.

Of course, I'm talking to the people who are complaining - ok, so if they feel it's against their religion, then they're free to say that, but it's a game, not real. Game. Fun.

I heard about this,

Apprantly, some Sikhs complained that the level where you have to kill loads of Sikhs is racist as they are being portrayed as terrorists.

People take games too seriously.

There have been plenty of games where you've had to kill certain "ethnic" groups, so why the whole comotion all of a sudden?

What is the world coming to?

*sigh*
