Violent Video Games Under Attack

Associated Press

01:14 PM Jul. 04, 2004 PT

NEW YORK -- The video-game industry seems to delight in pushing the envelope -- and the bounds of good taste -- with ever-gorier content. That has put it under renewed attack from legislators and activists who claim some titles must be kept out of kids' hands, though courts have repeatedly granted games First Amendment protections.

The opponents cite new research that they say suggests strong links between violent games and aggressive behavior. They are disturbed by games' cultural ubiquity and the always-improving technology that makes virtual gore more realistic than ever.

what a load of crap.
I remember when Heavy Metal was going to drive us into uncontollable maniacs and when Cable TV was going to make us slaves to the tube.
Anybody recall when everyone was up in arms by the way Elvis swung his hips in concert? Some practically thought the world was going to collapse when they saw that.

Of course, these are probably the same people who don't want to assume personal responsibilty over their own actions, its always easier to blame the latest and greatist.

Mommy and Daddy are to busy running their own lives to be bothered about raising their children. Can't miss cocktails at the lounge!
