voluntary rating system is an adequate screen for parents to judge the appropriateness of computer game content


is it me or does the stereotypical american parent not want to raise and monitor their child and what they do? everyone needs to tell them whats best for their child. can no one make decisions of their own? apparently not. and this is just one thing. my sister is a kindergarten teacher in one of the lowest income towns in our county and she has some messed up kids. they try to push the blame unto her when really its the parent. /rant

(sorry quite agnsty today)



I like how they used RE4 as an example as well.... great game, its a good example for a violent game but I doubt they discussed all the puzzles and problem solving it also has...

But 11 other states back California, saying they have enjoyed a traditional regulatory power over commerce aimed at protecting children, including such goods as alcohol and cigarettes.


they are controlled substances... how can you compare video games with controlled substances?????? /facepalm

Corporal punishment is "physical child abuse" while time outs in the corner are "psychological child abuse" and in fact, punishments in general are "emotional child abuse." The proper way to raise children is to treat them like they have the mental, emotional, and psychological maturity of a 35 year old. Explain to them they are wrong, do not convey any emotions if they aren't outright approval, and make sure to use big words.

Then blame it on everyone else when the children turn into drama queen violent tendencies with "tiny dick" complex.

At least, that's how it seems to be anymore.

Funny how the smallest penis always belongs to the biggest dick!

And yeah, somewhere along the line, "discipline" became "child abuse". So now not only are parents unwilling to discipline their children, they're shit-scared of the consequences of doing so. I'm just glad that the court saw just how damn silly this proposed ban was, and put an early kybosh on it.

I'm surprised that Fox news actually managed to stick to the facts for the most part:
http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/06/ ... -for-kids/
Although I will take issue with this:
Fox News wrote:Several violent video games have made headlines in recent months. "Bulletstorm," which features over-the-top violence including dismemberment, strong profanity and crude sexual innuendos was censored for the German market yet available in the United States.

Yeah, no shit Fox. They censor stuff in Germany. We don't.

Wow, that's clever in an evil way. They censor a ton of violent games in Germany, so that's practically an endless source of "It's so over-the-top Germany censors it!".
