Vidya games are what?!?!

Postby zel on Mon Jun 27, 2011 9:10 pm

So ya, supreme court says video games are protected free speech, like art, plays, novels, or movies.... whodathunkit?

So I guess now we can rest easy that crazy ppl won't have a leg to stand on when trying to ban a new game or whatever they're trying to ban/restrict. I mean really, what took em this long to realize that games are no different than movies, tv shows, or any other form of entertainment including stuff like books and what-have-you?

our government is inept and useless. it's no surprise it takes them years to realize that bad parenting, not violent video games, are what screws up children. as pathetic as it is that it took so long, it IS a victory. now if only Australia would get their thumbs out of their asses ...

Ya, i guess politics is supposed to take forever and a few days. I guess we should actually be thankful it got done before 2050.
