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.

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.
