That's utter bullshit... videogames aren't "harmful to children"... they're video games. If a six year old shouldn't play GTA, then by all means, don't let them. But even 14 year olds are probably mature enough to play rated M games, as long as they know the difference between reality or not. The parents should monitor what their children are doing. If their kids get the games and the parents don't know about it, the government shouldn't have to play "parents" to the nation..

It isn't all that bad Spear, but then think about it. If those ppl manage to get this far by getting this law passed. What do you think they'll try to do next? Maybe they will try to Banned a certain Video Game because is too violent or bloody? Is not such a big deal right now, but as video games become more graphic detail, these ppl will try to make a BIG deal out of games in the future. So I'm looking in a long term perspective.
Man i hate Arnold as much as the rest of you Californians. ohh no wait he repealed the increase in the car tax so i HAVE money to buy video games ANd he is not a retard like Gray Davis....and this gaming law dosint affect me at all...guess i like him

This is like saying that we cant have our freedom. I mean, if we want to play an M rated game, and we're a minor, then what the fu.ck??? We should be able to, it's not like we're training to take out America. People need to learn (people like soccer moms) that if they don't like something, it's THEIR opinion, so it really doesn't matter. People aren't gonna conform just so they can make the world a "peaceful" place, video games AREN'T the problem, THEY are! Am I right?? Just suck it up (like the rest of us normal, non-special people, unlike you who's got to have the world YOUR way) and get on with your life!!! Get used to it, because it's never gonna change, no matter how much you want it to... that's just how it is, and I've dragged my point. You get it.

It's just like in the movies, if you're not old enough to see a rated R movie...then you can't get in.
There are always loop holes. Your parents could get it for you, you can always rent it at some small place that doesn't keep track of such things.
They didn't have laws like this when I was young enough for the law to affect me because video games were for kids in my day. Now they are EXTREMELY more adult, their content is more graphic, and the violence is much much more realistic.
Just like everything illegal in the United States. If you want something bad enough....it isn't that hard to find.
link is right, while i dont agree with the law i bleieve that m rated games should be kept as far from kids as possible, its a little thing i like to call "common sense". games like gta and doom should be kept as far from young eyes as posible, that said, segregating games into an adult section is a bit ott imo
