Video Game Ratings and You

Posted on Monday 15 August 2005

Well the BBC reports that parents do not often care so much what the video game is rated or what it’s contents is as HOW many hours their child is playing the video game. The study was conducted by Jurgen Freund and the findings clearly indicate that parents at least in the UK and I will transfer it to a large number of the parents in the US don’t seem to know exactly what is going on in their child’s lives let alone why they shouldn’t be playing a m rated video game. These same parent’s will jump on the band wagon and file a lawsuit when there darling child goes on a rampage at the daycare center. They will claim that GTA made him do it but maybe it’s because the they didn’t give a crap what the kid was doing, never paid attention to him.

This whole problem with violent games is ridiculous, Parent’s are at fault, not game publishers not Gamestop, not the kid who sold You the parent an M rated game and warned you it had violent content in it. Stop telling the government to place restrictions on games stop giving Hillary Clinton and Half the Congress something petty to debate. Step up be a parent and learn what ratings mean!
