The California video game law is back and may even go to the Supreme Court

Jump to this site. This is all about California state, banning games that are in the category of violent, sexual content etc..
and games that they think are not too compatible with people especially kids. But of course, I agree with this quote,
"Many of these games are made for adults and choosing games that are appropriate for kids should be a decision made by their parents".

If the parents doesn't want their kids to see games like this, (i.e. GTA), it's their very own responsibility to filter this to them.

The law has been described unconstitutional, and gaming institutions were quick to act in countering the law, putting it under preliminary injunction, and eventually a permanent injunction. But it seems that California isn't calling game over just yet, as they are appealing the ruling made by the lower court in 2007.

Mou~ Mataku~ XD

I know it won't stop the self rightious moral guardians, but I do believe there was a Harvard study that stated that violent video games did not encourage real life violence...

Thanks for commenting.
I just found the site on what you said, and I agree with it very very strongly. We could say that, some kids are affected by these items, but at the same time, some kids are not. I really believe that on how is the parent is, that's how is the kid is.
