A recent poll on parenting game guide What They Play, asks this:
As a parent, which would you find most offensive in a video game?
The most offensive? A man and woman having sex. Second most? Two men kissing. Third was a graphically severed human head. Always found it odd that violence is okay, but sex is a no-no — especially in the US. Guess that's what happens when your country's founded by Puritans!
