Barely-audible F-bomb

#1 Posted by LaszloKovacs (1143 posts) -

So, believe it or not, Crazy Taxi includes several instances of the word "fuck". The F-bombs occur in the Offspring song "Way Down the Line", which is featured on the soundtrack.  This is something I have known since the game came out, because as a younger man I was way into The Offspring, but it's something I rediscovered this evening as I was rewatching the QL Jeff and Ryan did. 
 
My point is, I believe this to be the first and possibly only T-rated (this topic might be confusing to EU/AUS people; sorry) game to feature this particular obscenity. Can anybody think of another example?

Ah, perhaps.  It'd be nice if you had posted a video as verification, though. 
 
I can't really think of a T-rated game where "fuck" was used, uncensored.  As a similar example, I was really surprised when I learned "shit" could be used in a T-rated game via Mirror's Edge.

Shit has been used in PG-13 movies for a long time, and even in PG movies before they made the PG-13 rating, so it shouldn't be too surprising.

@FluxWaveZ: Yeah Mirror's Edge was one that surprised me recently for uncensored swearing in a T-rated game.

We're not talking about movies.  I had absolutely never heard uncensored swearing in a T-rated game before ME, hence my surprise.

@FluxWaveZ:
I also learned shit could be used in T-rated games with Mirror's Edge. 
 
My Google search didn't help at all, the only thing I noticed was somebody talking about the F word in Crazy Taxi on Sega's forums.  It may be the only one.

If you watch the Quick Look or listen to the song, it's fairly apparent. It comes up after the second verse: "you fuck(ed?) up just like your parents did".
