My kid's getting raised on Pikachu, and Hello Kitty. /fact

Granted I'll never have kids.

But yeah, Video Games = Violence is the most silly logic ever. Doesn't that fall under that thing about "something not equaling casualtiy?" I forgot how exactly it is worded...

I'm starting to dislike our government. Really, this is our main problem? Tell you what, you fix our economy and you can do whatever the f**k you want, but until then, stop f**king with us.

Right because with all the millions of smokers around the world, those lovely labels and even some that depict messed up lungs has really took the world by storm with the shock tactics and now hardly anyone smokes

Just because there's a huge f-ing label on it doesn't mean it will do anything, will these people learn?!

If a sign says "wet paint" above an area that has been painted, you can guarantee someone will leave a lovely hand print in there

I mean I do understand where they are coming from since even with giant labels on games now there are moronic parents out there blaming the games industry for their failures at parenting...seriously, rather than waste time and money on this, they should spend that time and money on parenting classes and make them mandatory by law

Hell, if they are going to bring out labels like the ones found on cigarettes then they should at least balance the scale and bring out parenting classes like driving tests (A simulator where if your grown up child shoots someone, you automatically fail and 3 points on your parenting licence)

there is only one fail here and that's the fake story to the wrong kind of crowd they made up about public safety and protecting growing youth in order to appeal more to the public for this idea of theirs. it may fool some parents who are in their most protective state right now but the gamers know that it doesn't work that way. why not just ditch the fake smile and be honest with us?? :/

we all know the gamemarket is just growing and growing and that certain parents are constantly out trying to sue the videogame market over reasons that sometimes makes us scratch the back of our heads. it's how the law works in some places, if you don't put warning stickers on everything you'll be sued for it eventualy

let's face it: the smokes received warninglabels because too many people started suing the sigarette industry for the same reasons. it was getting hard to tell victims and profiteers apart so people who tried to spread health awareness aswell as the law itself had a common interest in spreading awareness and put a label on it to fight and help both.

same thing is now tried with videogames, sadly you turn violent from videogames as much as you turn violent from movies and music. i'm not sure if they can pull this off with the parents. why not appeal to the gamers instead i wonder?

for example:

warning: this videogame may cause disrespective and/or immature behaviour among younger players during online use.

or

warning: online use is not suitable for young children.

screw agression. those are labels i wouldn't mind to see!

I can't find work. Pass a bill to stop outsourcing so I can keep buying video games.

Sorry, we already have the ESRB rating system, which was created for similar reasons. It's the responsibility of the stores to follow these guidelines and parents to **READ** these labels and decide what's right for their child(ren).

The government is not a parent. They have no business doing the parenting for us.

Also, I'd like to see some citations to these so-called "studies", and the data that they gathered. Are these studies peer-reviewed? Are they published in journals? What degree of credibility do they have?

I'd wager that the scientific method was not followed. At all.
No, it wasn't. And instead of focusing on crap like this and trying to pin the blame on President Obama for the high prices of oil, why doesn't Congress try and dig their heads out of their asses? Maybe then they'll realize that there are more pressing issues out there than this proposed bill.

I think this is all just one big publicity stunt to show people that the Government is in control.

how can it even show if their in control if the bill has yet to be passed or not?
What if this doesn't pass, how does it show their not in control?
Also this isn't the whole congress pushing for this, two congress men are the ones stated who are pushing the bill, now we just wait and see if it passes through senate, and HOR.
also in control of what, gaming?
