But in this case, you'd get arrested, so do it discreetly.

american yet supports Obama. Makes you think about where we are headed.

He just hated George Bush style policies. We definitely don't have to "wonder" where that would take us. We've lived it and our kids and grand kids will continue to pay for it.

Anyways ... stupid law. Censorship is never the answer.

I'm extremely disappointed in Hugo Chavez. When he came into power after being jailed for so long, he had lots of potential. He squandered it through inept policies and a reversion to authoritarian sentiments. Tis a shame.

I wonder if they will ban movies, tv, violent sports too? Seeing as they make video games a scapegoat, I see no reason for them to stop there. Why not ban movies? Oh right... because video games are a scapegoat.

Dude Im latin but that traslation is sounds very gay in spanish. This sounds much better.

el venenzuela me puede chupar las bolas.

Bodyboarder_VGamer3294d ago

aspirar... lol

That sounds more like a word a person from Spain would use because they are so lame. Instead of using "mamar" o "chupar". These are more offensive.

Picking on video games is just an excuse to continue to limit the freedoms of the Venezuelan people. Chavez has closed TV stations and radio stations, and he will continue to do so with impunity. On top of that, now there is water rationing and power outages to worry about, and this inept government focuses on something as ridiculous and meaningless as banning video games.
