What do parents really think about video games and ESRB ratings?

MWEB GameZone writes: "The last couple of years the media has painted a very grim picture of video games' influence on children and how parents are careless when it comes to exposing their kids to violent video games.

The ESA survey paints a completely different picture about how parents view video games as well as ESRB ratings."

The story is too old to be commented.

Most parents seem to ignore them as can be seen by the amount of kids playing GTA/CoD/BF3/ many others. I guess using the pc/consoles as a nanny is a easy option for alot of parents.

In my experience parents use it as their number one deciding factor.

For smaller kids perhaps? Older ones I don't know.

I think gaming can definately have a positive influence on children, yet there will always be some bad apples.
