The Town That Banned Video Games, Seriously

Muaz from Twinfinite writes: "Video games have gotten blamed for everything from causing aggression in kids to cuasing laziness and truancy. For almost as long as these ludicrous claims have been around, there has also been the threat of banning certain games. One small Massachusetts town took this threat to the next level by actually banning arcade games way back in 1982." (Arcade, Culture, Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man)
