British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has commented further on statements made earlier in the week, over proposed banning of supposed violent games. In that statement Mr Brown has ruled out any plans to introduce censor the video games industry
The only thing I hope is that this supposed panel of "Experts" is balanced and not made up of people that have never seen a video game never mind played one. Education for parents is more important than simply blaming games that already have there own rating system in the UK.
Last month David Cameron said that violent video games were bad, the month before he said he would support the video game industry and now Gordon Brown says he won't censor video games. I think that means everyone should now vote for Labour not Conservatives so we can play manhunt. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Politics!
Anyway they have won my vote. Lol
Nah, my votes for the monster raving loony party, they have no anti-game policies and also have other cool ideas, like covering big ben in custard.
It's almost election time, so video games are latest buzzword so everyone jumps on the bandwagon.
Glad to hear there is a videogame friendly party. I will vote Labour then, as usual. I was thinking of voting Lib Dem this time, since both Labour and Conservative parties had talked about banning videogames.
censoring and ratings that don't make much sense are just the worst thing that can happen to games. adults play games and deserve to have whatever content they want in their games barring some illegal content (say kiddie porn).. so if esrb or whoever wants to rate games for adults only don't ban the games and don't just decide to not approve them for your systems.
What is the point in banning anything in this day and age? I can go online and download almost anything. To censor is to make downloading appealing. IMO children should not see certain images, but should that mean that as an adult I should not choose what I see? The parents of children are to blame for not looking at packaging, not checking out what their child has asked for. IMO it should go back to the days of Zero Censorship. If it is of an offensive nature then it should come in a brown bag. Nothing to see on the shelve except the name on a box. The only films illegal are films that would be illegal to make.
