Research has shown that stereotypically speaking, men tend to place more emphasis on sex, the physical aspect, while women prefer a closer bond based on emotion. That's not to say men don't care about emotions and women don't care about sex; it's a question of priority, and what we consider to be the foundation of relationships.
I consider these things to be entirely individual and any truth to the stereotypes stems from what society teaches us only -- this isn't nature.

Gender is simply a construct of society, after all...
Ah, there we are.

Yep...unless you want Jack Thompson in your ass, you've gotta reign it in to a certain degree. Maybe in 10 or 20 years we'll have progressed enough as a society to allow the wanton murder of virtual children.

Actually Fallout lets you do that, at least outside the UK.

@Chautemoc - No, actually. Children are not killable in Fallout 3. Not unless you disable their immortality on a PC version. The console versions are unkillable. Though in a way you CAN kill em. Just not directly, and it is mostly just implied.

Destroying Megaton kills the two kids living there, I assume.

But aside from that *shrugs*

In any case, it would be nice if there was a game made where nothing was really off limits. In other words, almost like your character was tossed into an alternate reality that functioned much like our own (though hopefully, you at least had easy access to deadly weaponry, or magic, or something that wouldn't work in the real world).

That won't happen, I'm sure. At least not for a LONG time. Some stuff is just 'no' to developers (mostly due to legalities, and perceived matters of taste).

There are other Fallout games you know.

Sorry if I sound like a jerk..it's just frustrating.
