Ya f*cking what?

Geez, the intelligence of USians and thier willingness to pursue legal action still continues to amaze me...

A grandmother is suing Take Two interactive (Article here) for engaging in false, misleading and deceptive practices because she bought GTA:SA for her 14-year-old grandson and it wasn't labelled that it had hidden, sexually explicit scenes.

Never mind that the game was initially rated "M" for mature, for players 17 which is measured using the following guidelines:
MATURE
Titles rated M (Mature) have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older. Titles in this category may contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content, and/or strong language.

Why doesn't she go and ask her grandson why he downloaded a third-party patch and applied it so that he could see the 'hidden' scene? Why can't people take responsibility for themselves?
