    Meanwhile, I don't think Carmageddon: Reincarnation ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...reincarnation/ ) is going to reach their goal of 600k for a Linux port. It's a shame...

          I am no fan of such games myself so I just don't buy them.

            Could you explain your morals? I don't get what is immoral about a game where no real people are involved.

              To think about certain things too.
              Thinking about little kids in a sexual way is as much wrong as actually engaging in it, it's just consequences are different.
              Just because you can imagine you can shoot off hand of lawful and reasonable Police officer or do it in a game doesn't make it any better. It is as bad, it's just we generally judge by consequence. I am one of those people who see world in black and white, where everything is either darker grey or lighter grey. And very occasionally just grey that is 50/50

                If I understand you correctly you think that thinking about something is the same as doing it? Do you also think people should be punished for thinks they have thought about?

                Do you think that people that play carmageddon think about killing people by driving a car in to them?

                  Judge based on consequences...
                  I have seen 14 years of age kids were laughing at pictures from crime reports, where brains were literally all around floor. Hei, they didnt kill anyone, so is it ok? No! But consequence of their actions was that I made them feel shame.

                    So what is the consequence of playing carmageddon or laughing about horrible pictures? Could you point to a victim?

                      For some people its ok, for others it may be traumatic, heck, they may do some crazy shit cause of that. Some may get trolled on the internetz.(Karma is a bitch) For some it may be good way to let off steam and not do this in real life. IMHO(I understrike on IMHO here), it does more damage than good. It's like war, it happens, it has some good results, but it would be better if it didn't happen.

                        Unfortunately war is usually forced onto the citizens of a nation. Carmageddon is not. Some individuals act in irresponsible ways; you cannot stop that. [sarcasm]I think really we should hang all knife makers because so many people decide to use knifes to kill other people.[/sarcasm]

                          Do you have any evidence that people that play games are heavily influenced by them? I don't believe in karma by the way imho it is just a horrible religious idea. My experience is that when I don't like something I don't do it. When I like something that does harm I try to not to do it.

                            Kitchen knives do more good than bad. One day when it will be other way around they will be restricted. Child porn is also not forced upon others(victims are obvious exception), still, just because it's not forced, it doesn't mean it's not bad.
                            I am talking about good and bad, and consequences.

                              So once again Windows gamers are paying slightly below average, Linux gamers way above average and nearly double that of Windows gamers, and only Valve is jumping in to support Linux as one of the top dogs? Meh...
