Gosh I loved when that issue was resolved, but I remember Gamestop still had a "You need a parent to get this game" thing in-line or something. Is that still the case with them today?

Huntereb GameStop still requires an ID, or a parent if you don't have one proving you're 17.

Always have, always will.......... in a world where every GameStop employee followed the rules.
In my years as a GameStop customer, I've only ever seen two staffers ask for ID. Hardly makes a difference when the 10-year-olds have their parents/grandparents buying GTA, COD and Fallout for them anyway.

Seriously, people who get huffy about minors playing violent games need to look at themselves and how they parent, not the poor dudes and gals getting paid a shitty salary to stand behind a counter all day. May as well require McDonald's employees to warn customers about how hot the coffee is whenever they pour someone a cup.

They don't need to, it's on the label.

Thanks for clearing that up by the way guys!

Not as bad as frozen food with wash your hands in the cooking instructions, not kidding either. At least waiters/waitresses warn you about hot plates when serving food, hand washing is food safety 101.

Exactly, don't ignore every warning you get about inappropriate content then turn around and get mad when your kids see something they shouldn't have. My parents didn't really care what I played, but then my consoles were hooked up in the living room so it didn't matter either. If you can't even pay attention to what your kids are doing you have bigger problems than M-rated games.

I would love to have this job not because of the extreme cases you have to deal with nor the horrid lawyers and other court officials you would have to see, but for the one moment a video game case like this comes up and you get the excuse to play some Medal of Honor. Go US.

Other previous Supreme Court Justices used to have movie nights where they would watch Hardcore Pornography to try to define obscenity laws. True story.
