    Places already can …
    Places already can get fined for selling M rated videogames to underage kids. I see no other need for protection against violent videogames. By passing this law, they are passing an overkill censorship law. They are simply targeting videogames as Movies, Television, Radio, and even books where once targeted. It’s a useless law and doesn’t deserve to be passed. Parrents should already know what games to buy their kids, you wouldn’t take a six year old to Nightmare On Elmstreet would you?

    A kid health issue?WTF don’t target the games, gamers and developers target parents!If you target a rating (M) for example game developers won’t what to make those games,and there for limits their creative willingness to make those games.If parent ware so worried about their kids they would do research,they are just lazy and once they see some thing they don’t like they blame the ones who make it,but not one second do they realize they got it for there kid with their own$?

    This is failure for parents, its parents job to say what there kids can and cannot do, the government shouldnt even be getting involved the rating says every thing bad thats in the game like use of drugs or gangs or nudity and its the parents job to notice that and not let there child play the game, NOT the fricken government, This is whats wrong with the U.S. today parents dont know when to say NO , Nazeem38 proves my comment

    This is stupid , the economy is growing now small but growing , taking away games and making them this way will be a major downfall for everyone , the parents are to be blamed not the game industry , its called teaching kids right from wrong , video games are harmless , its the parents actions that depends on how things play out , immature 10 year old kids shouldn’t be playing video games sure , but its the parents fault for whatever happens to that kid , not the game industry

    “My child keeps asking me to buy him games like Halo or Call of Duty, so I buy them for him. This must be the government’s fault! They should ban violent video games because I’m afraid to say no to my child! ”

    Pretty much what parents think these days.

    Hehehe. The fool in the first minute basically calls the game industry greedy, selling games towards anyone. However, the guy probably wants to pocket money off of those hefty fines. I hope the ban doesn’t take effect. Ban POKEMON! That same game is released again and again in different editions. It just teaches kids “Hey, I’ma gonna kill your mutant stuffed animal.” “No,” “I wanna brawl!” It just cons 9-year old handheld noobs out of money.

    America has so many problems, the war in the middle east, their very own health care,the BP oil spil, the spread of AIDS and thousands more that I can list. All of a sudden they care about childrens’ well being? If there isnt a hidden motive behind this crap, feel free to call me a douche bag whenever you want.

    The only reason …
    The only reason this law is in the court is because of the election. Not because the senators and congressmen care about what the kids are playing, they could give a flying what we do. Even if this does get passed the parents will still get kids the games they want. The parents now a days dont care what the kids are playing as long as they dont bug them. The problem isnt the games its the parents not raising thier kids to know right from wrong/good from evil.

    @nta214 That’s a different problem. Kids need to be taught that being “hip” and playing “cool” games isn’t important. Kids need to be taught to not conform and find better games to play. In my opinion, they should begin by playing slightly more kiddy games like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon (Legend of Spyro), Sonic the Hedgehog, Ratchet & Clank. Not TGA, Manhunt and all that crap. That doesn’t mean M games need to be banned. It just means kids need to be parented more tightly.

    I am with the EA guy 100%! I bet that doing the case can’t name any other games than GTA and Manhunt. He doesn’t know about video games! Even back in the days of N64 and PS1 I still got carded for buying and renting M rated games. I was of age to get it so I didn’t mind.

    @rootbeerlover445 – At the end of the day the blame game doesn’t change a thing. We’re not interested in past shootings or bullying or any of that. What we need is to keep adult content, and content that has been recognized in the social science field as unhealthy for the mental state of minors, out of the hands of minors.

    HA, this is funny. What can they do honestly? Raise the age? Its well enforced already so if kids were to get the game, they will get the same way as before. With their parents. lool.

    Parents recognize it? Thats why every time I’m in Gamestop I hear “mommy can I get this game it’s rated M”, and the parent invariably responds “Idunno nothin’ about it. If thats the one you want get it and lets go”. Parents take NO interest in their children’s lives, because the previous generation failed to parent THEM properly.

    They asked a good question on CNN – What is wrong with prohibiting the sale of adult content to minors? Nothing.

    Weed is legal in California. It just would seems right for games to get banned. It kinda balances it out. Why cant we just have both in all states…

    I seen tons of kids get turned away from Gamestores for a game like GTA4. Kids can get porn, weed and hamburgers… and google anything and watch anything on cable. These games don’t go far enough to water down kids to the reality of cruel life. Send them to a massacre in Mexico and see what real brutality is. Arnold is a Nazi, hope he catches a bullet with his face!
