You Don’t Call Video Games “Filthiest Form of Pornography”

"If you still buy your 10-13 year olds Black Ops 2 then that is simply bad parenting, isn't it?"

Well said! That still comes down to the parents who ignore ratings and the store staff who clearly see who will be playing but still make the sale. Some years back, I was carded to buy Halo 2. I was about 25 at the time and got asked for ID. But behind me, there was a whiny kid asking dad to buy it for him, and the cashier didn't seem to care about that. If I got carded to check if I was over 18, why is she selling the game to the parent when obviously it's this 10 year old who will be playing? Aren't the ratings there for a reason?

I'm so tired of this "blame it on the videogames" crap. It was 7 years ago that I wrote a piece about it (gamersintuition.com/article.p hp?t=violence if interested), and I can't believe the argument still stands! >:(

Violence is something that people are going to see anyways so why do people say its not right for it child to have the game maybe not to young just old enough to understand

I think pornography is probably the filthiest form of pornography. You ever see a horse sodomize a man in a video game?

If so, please send me a link.
