Parents Step Up

Oh, man! Big media? This clown’s gunning for you! In your pathetic attempts to exploit statements and net marketing dollars, you’ve neglected one little detail in your accounts of youth violence: the parents!

You think I’m playing? Just check out the similarities between Sneak King and Manhunt! Compare their target audiences and and gameplay. The ESRB is there to inform, not be a stand-in parent while you have your heads firmly planted up your rectums.

Research links are included in the video description and below. Be sure to share this with Maude down the street who’s complaining about little Timmy lying to her that DOOM 4 was totally for kids. Yeah right, lady.

Thanks for watching, and Lumpz the Clown OUT!
