A study by Hill & Knowlton of over a thousand respondents showed that a majority think the government should regulate mature content itself, and even 44% of gamers surveyed approved such regulation.
So 60% of adults would rather have the government "regulate" kids versus themselves, then when it doesn't work out so well its only the fault of the gov and ourselves. I wish parents would take a stronger role in just teaching kids the basics of morality versus just censoring them from it all, it's not like TV or movies will ever teach us...
Exactly, Gov't != Parents. The Parents need to stop being lazy and govern what their underage kids are playing. I predict that in a decade or less a significant amount of parents will be playing games so much so that governing what their kids play is easy. We don't need the gov't to get involved, just the parents.
just what we need. More BS trickling down. Dont some of us have freedoms and such?
A generation gap being solved by further disconnection and refusal of actual interaction. I've also seen a rise in news "coverage" of violence in video games. They seem to be feeding off the fact that some parents don't play video games, so they know nothing about them. They leech off that ignorance and here we are. -_- That's it I'm moving to the moon.
Only means, 60% of the adult population are a bunch of uneducated morons who don't know jack about their kids.
It's not far from the truth. Being a parent doesn't automatically entitle you to be a RESPONSIBLE parent...
"Uncle sam, I am irresponsible. I can't handle my own kids. So please, please do my job for me." THAT is what the survey says.
People who want or expect the government to raise their children for them obviously can't handle the responsibility of having children in the first place.
It's official, America is doomed.
Just keep the liberals out of power, and there won't be government regulation of video games.
damn idiots.....first itll be video games....then the movie industry..... then the music industry.... then what? i love the U.S, minus the idiots running it. its amazing how parents these days cant take better care of what their kids are doing. they would rather let the government handle things. give the current party enough power and the land will soon be ruled by dictatorship. remember "1984" by george orwell...... i do believe big brother will rule us soon, at the rate people decide to feed the government power.
should take responsibility for raising their kids the way the want them to grow up. Stop blaming TV, Movies, Video Games and schools for giving them messed up children. Look in the damn mirror and you will see where your kids get that behavior from. If you were a real parent you would look at everything your child gets before they get it. Censor your own child don't put that responsibility on the government. Otherwise the government will be telling you what to watch and say also.
I think its pretty funny how some adults can be stupid! My friends mom for instance detest the fact that me and my friend let his little brother play GTA but when it comes down to watching a movie like Saving private Ryan or Saw she is totally cool with it... WTF! If you can tell me the difference plz enlighten me... Media violence is Media Violence end of story
