tl;dr

The impact of exposure to violent media is long term and cultural, these methods aren't helpful. This is close to a scare tactic by the uninformed, what is helpful is parents making sure their children can differentiate between fantasy and reality, and making sure they reduce children's exposure. Young children can't differentiate between fantasy and reality, if you inform kids and get parents to act responsibly, there's no need for the federal government to try to be a babysitter. It fights a notion of liberty obviously, and is condescending in that it says the denizens of the U.S. aren't responsible enough to make their own decisions. So what needs to happen is, the government needs to respect the individual as responsible individuals, and prosecute those who are actual criminals (that is to say after they've done something) As opposed to diminishing everyone's liberty with legislation like this.

When I was young I would play violent games when I was angry, to blow off steam. It worked pretty good, the alternative would have been to smash my room, far more destructive behaviour.

Let's just remove all the box art and cover the whole thing with warning labels.
If one is good a lot of them must be much better, no? :rolleyes:

Next up, government mandated emotion controlling, psychotropic drugs to prevent violent outbursts. Say hello to the inhabitants of the planet Miranda in the movie Serenity.

"The video game industry has a responsibility to parents, families and to consumers — to inform them of the potentially damaging content that is often found in their products,"
Um, isnt that what the ESRB ratings are for? It's not the game industries fault that people are fucking stupid and parents dont regulate what they buy their children.

"Mommy can you buy this for me?" "Sure Jimmy!"

*kid takes it home and plays*

*Jimmy's mother* "Oh my god what the hell are you playing?"

*Jimmy* "It's the game you just bought me mommy."

Jimmy's mother* "I had no idea this game was so violent for an ESRB game that said 18+ and youre only 8!"

Ya, its the game industries fault...

+1

Kinda what i said in my bigger post.



I dont know if any of you people watch CoD commentaries on youtube - I watch a few of them namely ELPRESADOR, OnlyUseMeBlade & NormalDifficulty

watch some of of their commentaries - especially OnlyUseMeBlades & NormalDifficulties and whats the ONE thing their videos have in common a side from the fact they are playing the same game???

the game is just totally dominated by kids! kids that probably needed to ask their daddys permission to play on the console!

In OnlyUseMeBlades commentaries - its always the kids that rage and scream "OHHHMAAHHHGAWWWWDDDD!! STOP IT YU DOUCHE!!!!" Im mean seriously.... I suppose parents let them play these games thinking "oh it keeps little jimmy busy for an hour or two" so they have a free moment to themselves in the day where they can go on facebook or whatever they need to do.

MW3 is rated (M) by ESRB for MATURE audiences yet the game is full of kids, some of which that i doubt are even old enough to have pubes.

Its the parents duty to monitor their kids and make sure whatever they are watching, playing or listening to is appropriate for their age/age group.

the game industry have already did their job rating a game in the suitable age group. yet its the parents who buy the games for their kids to play.

And, of course, because it does not fit your apparently intolerant world view, it just has to be wrong?
And what part of what I said was incorrect, do you feel?

Yeah, sold us to China...made us all rich for a little while. Also, he is not a party.

Oh behalf of all sane Californians, I apologize for Joe Baca getting elected. Unfortunately, theres likely only 5 of us in the entire state. The smarter sane ones moved to Arizona and Washington years ago.

What is proposed ain't bad at all. Games have a different infulence over the people. A quite extensive german study concluded that from the age of 1-7, television and computer brings nothing, but distruction. (but it's more complex than that). Basically children address the feelings of fear, horror, action, etc in a different way than the teenagers or adults do. I don't know on what scientific basis did they decide to propose the bill, but I'd love to analyze it. I personally think that games (in the field of violence) do influence, not so much in performing the act of violence, but as a mental concept. What I mean is, for people that play games, it makes the "concept/ideas" of certain events "more natural/normal". If you see a kid moving with his left hand as if holding a torchlight and his right as if holding a gun...that's mimicry (it appears when a game goes "deeper" in one's mind). Long story short, let them put more labels, I don't really think it is gonna make much difference. Every person still has his/her free will, so....

If a violent game can make someone aggressive then that same person is very likely to be made aggressive by a violent movie or TV show. The fault is the individual psychology, not what they are doing. Why should the video game industry be punished for something they have absolutely no control over?

On the other hand, the tobbacco industry knew their product kills people. It was designed to kill them as slowly as possible in order to maximize profits. They also buried study after study that proved tobacco contained numerous carcinogens. Was the label really necessary? No. The people that smoked knew their health was being effected without a damn label on the box. Does it stop anyone from smoking? Very, very unlikely.


You cited an example of bad parenting. A good parent wouldn't allow a child under the age of 7 to have much electronic entertainment time.
