The Supreme Court this week ruled that video games are protected under the first amendment just like art, music, books and plays. While others will discuss the historical significance of adding a new medium to the protection of the constitution, Glossy Eyed is left wondering why taxpayers money and the court's time was spent on this.
This ruling stems from a Californian law intended to ban the sale of violent video games to minors. Glossy Eyed total agree that young children should never play violent games. Just like they shouldn't watch R–rated movies, smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol and all of the other things intended for adults. But isn't this something parents are suppose to monitor?
