New Bill in Congress Would Add Cigarette-like Warning Labels to Video Games | GamePolitics
I'm absolutely against this. The ESRB is around for a reason and here comes this new Congressman trying to make a name for himself by being an ambulance chaser like Jack Thompson.[The bill] creates a new rule within the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which forces games with a Teen rating or higher to be sold with a simple warning label, reading: "WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior."
If we're gonna put such an inane label like warning about video games, why not put a label on cheese warning of the deadly cholestoral, the #1 killer in America?
Tomorrow I'm actually contacting this congressman's office and requesting a conversation (if not a meeting) to discuss this bill entirely and present my points on it.
am I overreacting? maybe, but if I don't, who will?
