Anyone else surprised Blizzard hasn't been sued yet by stupid parents & bloodthirsty lawyers?

You have been able to drink alcohol in online games for years, what's different now?

The only reason parents can sure Blizzard over WoW is because the game alone is a drug... :D

You should know by now, the only thing people care about in videogames is nudity.

And running over the po-pos with a semi.

I really dont think they care about that... the only time it becomes an issue is when Jack Thompson comes in or someone uses a video game as a defense for their shameful acts.

American culture is growing more & more entitled, blame-free (everything is someone else's fault) and litigious

Nah, the GTA series has featured this over the course of five games spanning a decade. The only time it had legal issues was when an aftermarket download featured four pixels depicting a nipple. Violence is fine in our culture; sex and chemically altered states of mind are not.

I think it's a valid concern. The thought police have banned tobacco adds on television. Anti-tobacco nazis have also tried to ban it from being shown in TV and movies, so it's reasonable to assume games are next.

I remember going to a non-alcoholic beer site once, and they required you to confirm you were over 21. WTF! Why do you need to be over 21 to see pictures of non-alcoholic beer? So I can see the same thing happening in video games where alcohol usage in a game is banned or restricted to those over 21.
