The I&B ministry has finally heeded to pleas by parents to censor all graphic computer games. This basically means that computer games with too much blood and gore will not be made available for children. Same goes for those games which involve 'prizes' like virtual sex with a girl if you clear a certain level.
"Parents have been voicing their concerns against such computer games for a long time now. We decided it's high time we introduce censorship in computer and video games," says a source in the I&B ministry.
The draft bill being considered by the ministry also proposes that the Censor Board do this job and certify an age-limit for kids accessing particular video games. The Censor Board might also reserve the right to reject a video game if it is 'unsuitable' for an Indian audience.
