Pennsylvania Governor Defends Videogames and Supports the ESRB

Ripten's Dan Landis writes: Unlike the vast majority of politicians, Pennsylvania State Governor Ed Rendell is not a self-righteous prick when it comes to videogames. In fact, he supports the ESRB's rating system, and he'll even go on TV to prove it.

Governor Rendell recently teamed up with the ESRB to create a public service announcement educating parents on the ESRB's rating system and how it can benefit their families. The PSA will run on both television and radio.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow. Videogames and politics... and it's good news? I'm speechless. I want to move to Pennsylvania so I can vote for that guy and keep him in office.

A definite rarity, a politician not blaming games, but educating the parents, that need to use this rating system to make informed decisions.

I live in Pennsylvania. So I guess i don't have to worry about some kind of ban against video games for a long while.

That's assuming he stays in power.

Wouldn't it be cool to someday have a good president that was also an avid gamer? Dreamland, I know, but I've always wondered if it came to be and the president was playing an online shooter...would he have secret service backing him up?

Do employees actually stop people from buying games if they are under-aged?

SRuN44660d ago

yes they do. happened to a poor kid in front of me this past week who tried to buy call of duty 4 but didnt have id. felt sorry for him.
