U.S. Supreme Court asked to reject California's violent video game restrictions

A non-profit membership organization that represents gamers known as The Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA), and a coalition of other consumer groups submitted a brief to the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the violence in video games case, Schwarzenegger v. EMA.

The story is too old to be commented.

Cali is so weird. Liberal to the core, but uptight with things like this. Confusing.

I live in CA and it's not that surprising. Y'see, Cali's a huge melting pot of different cultures. And yeah, Video games have a "larger that usual" effect on the people here in selected parts of Cali. Those "selected parts" happen to be the most influential to crime and other bad things in the world. I'm against most forms of anti-violent video game legislation, but I do know where the pro-side is speaking from. You'll see nearly the same kind of action with Texas or Arizona, whom are on the border with Mexico but Cali's the biggest exception since we're full of different cultures everywhere. So please consider that there's more to the issue than simply overzealous mothers or politicians looking for a scapegoat.

Frankly, FUCK the ECA. They say they advocate gamer rights and all that 1st amendment bullshit, but they're more concerned with maintaining the bottom-line than any shit they claim they defend. They defend violent video games because violent video games sell and make profit for the industry. They're so corporate that BOBBY KOTICK IS A MEMBER OF THE ECA.
