The Battle for Gaming!

Post by Epzaos on Tue Nov 02, 2010 8:41 am


The hour is at hand, it's 2 November and the greatest battle in the history of gaming will begin soon to determine it's fate, It's Gamers VS Oversensitive Polititians.
One shall Stand, One shall Fall(Yeah, i stole that line from Optimus Prime so go ahead and sue me, if you can)!
The United States Supreme Court building, Monday night. We'll be inside on Tuesday, covering the Court's first case about video games. It pits California against the game industry over a law that would make the sale of very violent games to kids illegal.

Know what's funny?


Gamestop is already doing this. In order for a minor to purchase an M rated videogame, a person(s) over the age of 18 must be there to confirm the purchase.

No, but the law will make it so that minors won't even be able to have their parents buy a game.

I already been to LA like twice. I don't see what's so special about it? In my opinon LA lacks of culture compare to other cities in the US.

I would rather live in New York City (A.K.A. JewTown) then LA to be honest.

That doesn't even make any sense. A minor could just tell a parent to walk in and buy it. How would cashiers know who it's for?

Well, if you think about it, the parents would get suspicious on why can't their son and/or daughter don't get it themselves. They'd realize the game is inappropriate for their child. The law is not foolproof. But, it will certainly put some obstacles in the way.

Could someone tell what the problem is? I mean if a kid tries to buy beer here he will be asked for I.D (Legal age is 18) if he ain't got it, he ain't getting the beer.

Is this law simply trying to stop minors from buying M rated videogames? What's wrong with that?

Maybe there is an upside for the doubters. No more 12 year old kids shouting abuse at you on Gears or Halo....Now that's a win. Nice!

They're trying to say, your parents can't buy the games for you.

It won't stop, their parents can easily go and buy the game for them, now what is wrong with that is that some people mature much faster than others, and they can see the difference between Real Life and the Video Game, this whole "We must Protect our Children from Violent video games" is fucking Bullshit, it doesn't matter how old you are, as long as you have the brain to understand what a Video Game is then you won't have a problem.

GAMESTOP ALREADY DOES THAT. Gamestop employees have to recite this to a minor:

''Is a person 18 years of age older present with you? Ma'dam/Sir, do you know that this game received an ''M'' rating for its high gore/sexual content/violence? Yes? Show me your ID please, thank you. Here you go.''

I think he is saying that you won't like be able to have the minor with you. And either way, ignorant parents are ignorant. This won't stop them from buying the game.

Thats not what you said...
You said "A minor could just tell a parent to walk in and buy it"
But, now you changed it to "if a minor goes into the store and attempts to buy it" Facepalm
