Funny thing about rap music, it is influential to younger people...
Most of the time it doesn't promote things as horrible as GG Allin did with his music but it's had its moments where idiots think that it's a good idea to follow shitty things that happen in the 'song'.

They're always gonna need a scapegoat for society's ills. Comic books, rock and roll, rap...this generation, it's just video games' turn. Give it time and it will blow over to something else.

Edit: Haha, my favorite lyric from Blame Canada just sprung to mind. "We must blame them because of us before somebody thinks of blaming us". xD

lol, the only time I see someone warning a child about the rating of a game is from a store clerk warning the parents to warn the kids I don't see this changing anything. Seen a lot of parents just not care about what games their kids play. maybe we should work on that :0 (hehe only say that because it no longer involves me )

"The video game industry has a responsibility to parents..."
Parents are just too ret**ded to understand that we made it black and white for them.

Damn it, not this again!
I swear, one day, very soon, I'm just going to move to Europe.
You would be surprised, they aren't much better. Certianly not as bad as Australia but still.

Really sad this came about in 2009 and it wasn't squashed out back then. Instead Baca and Leland Yee dumped tax money into these efforts without considering the impact on programs actually designed to help the children they profess to care about so much.

Let's see, Leland Yee's proposition was... oh that's right denied completely and the state had to pay for both parties costs. I'm sure that Baca using selective fact finding will fair much better to fake his connections to these issues he's claiming. Too bad there can't be a stipulation that if this plan fails Baca has to reimburse the state out of pocket for knowingly wasting state funds.

Instead of trying to become political celebrities making bogus bills "for the children" they should focus on actually contributing to the state instead. Video games have warning labels already, this isn't a bad pimp my ride meme where you say "I heard you like redundancy so I put a warning label about the warning labels on yo gamez dawg"

We already have have huge mother*bleep*ing symbols saying
"M - Mature 17+" or "T - Teen" on the box.

If idiotic parents are going to buy their kids Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto with the video game equivalent of Parental Advisory stickers on music, this warning (which doesn't have nearly enough proof) is going to do anything.

Damn they are retarded. They're too stupid to deal with our real problems so they just come up with they're own. Really? I've been playing Saints Row and related games for a while and you don't see me running around town hitting people with big purple ***** or anything of the sort.

Lol. Wanna know what stirs up aggressiveness and this whole "party generation" we have? The music and parents. The music introduces kids as young as 6-7 (from what I've seen) to things like partying and clubbing, using music from artists such as LMFAO, Katy Perry, and a handful of other "in" artists right now. All of that trashy music is being introduced to kids, which not only makes them introduced to alcohol, partying/clubbing, and boy/girlfriend troubles too early, but it also gives them a sense of defiance. As for the parents, parents who just don't give a rat's ass and are the same way that their kids have now become makes them aggressive, along with the friends that they hang out with. Again, this also ties with the sense of defiance kids get from music nowadays.

So whoever proposed this is just seeking attention or money for a useless cause.
