Court weighs state law banning 'violent' video games from children

In some games an underage player can "imagine he is a torturer and impose gratuitous, painful, excruciating violence upon small children and women -- and do this for an hour or so," said Justice Stephen Breyer. "Why isn't it common sense to say a state has the right to tell parents if you want that for your 13-year-old, you go buy it yourself?"

imagine is the key word...

i saw a lot of 10~13 years old kids playing GTA just to keep killing the grannys on the street, someone with a weak mental balance would, after some time playing the game, think that is how it is on real life, and the next time he get's in tight situation with someone, he can try to kill the person...

i really think that mature games should be handled as porn movies, only 18+ can rent or buy them (of course, without the embrassment ppl feel about porn movies).

all in all; if parents did their job, raising their children in a healty way, with healty activities, no one would need to make these laws...
