Congressman Tries to Slap Health Warning on Games... Again

Maximum PC Staff

Boy, times sure have changed, haven't they? Our technology makes Thomas Edison's predictions look downright silly , we might have cured HIV , and – most insanely of all – Duke Nukem Forever has a friggin' release date . Oh, but you know what hasn't changed? Like, at all? Congressman Joe Baca.

Yep, he's at it again . Same “WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent games has been linked to blah, blah, blah” bit, same alleged proof that games cause violence, same ignorance of all evidence to the contrary. Hell, he's even regurgitating the same two year-old press release !

This time, though, Rep. Frank Wolf of Virginia is his co-sponsor, which means an entire two people now support this hilariously misguided cause. Seeing as the bill flopped last time and then proceeded to disappear for a couple years, its passing is about as likely as Baca changing his first name to “Chew.” (Which would completely change our opinion of him, but we digress.)
