Gamers:1 Spitzer:0

"As a widely outspoken critic of the videogame industry, Eliot Spitzer has been a small blip on gamer's radars for short while now. During his 2006 campaign he jumped on his soapbox and tore into Grand Theft Auto 3 with the following remarks:

"Media content has gotten more graphic, more violent, and more sex-based… Currently, nothing under New York State law prohibits a fourteen-year old from walking into a video store and buying… a game like Grand Theft Auto, which rewards a player for stealing cars and beating people up.

Maybe if Mr. Spitzer had been practicing the act in a virtual world since he was fourteen he would have been better at getting away with it…
