I swear to god - if they have a citizen's panel, I will try my best to be in it and provide a logical and realistic approach to violent games.

Banning them is not viable - there should be further restriction on who is allowed to buy them and perhaps, where and when they advertise them too.

anyhoo, I would not take what the mirror states - they are seriously anti violent games.

they said they want to ban them from teenagers. They aren't supposed to be able to buy them anyway. So this really doesn't effect me at all.

They can restrict sales of games to a certain age. Thats obvious as it is mildly practiced. But as anyone who actually plays video games knows, its the parents problem.

Anyway, if they found a way to "ban" violent video games it would destroy the whole industry. =/

You might want to mention that.
