Supreme Court played games before landmark decision that games are protected under First Amendment

After play sessions, Judge Alito states "In some of these games, the violence is astounding. Victims by the dozens are killed with every imaginable implement, including machine guns, shotguns, clubs, hammers, axes, swords and chainsaws."

Further adds "But only an extraordinary imaginative reader who reads a description of a killing in a literary work will experience that event as vividly as he might if he played the role of the killer in a video game. To take an example, think of a person who reads the passage in Crime and Punishment in which Raskolnikov kills the old pawn broker with an axe." (Culture, Industry)
