The Video Game Handbook: Sex and Violence

Gamnesia: "This is sort of an old issue in video games, an argument we've heard about, read about, and have argued against many times as gamers. The concern about the content that our children and youth are being exposed to in video games has been prevalent since the early 90s, and it seems like every few years some old git is calling for federal video games regulation. Well, like Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw once said: "They are old gits, so we could conceivably wait for them to all die." It's funny to think that in about a decade an entire new generation of people will be running our government, and looking back on how society used to demonize video games because they were a convenient scapegoat will be remembered as tragically quaint."
