It's not a matter of whether it prevents me from getting my games or not. It's a matter of the government trying to play nanny for people when it really has no goddamn business doing so. This bill, if it is passed, makes M-rated videogames have effectively the same legality as cigarettes and alcohol, and as far as I'm concerned, that's wrong on so fucking many levels. It's not the government's goddamn business to determine whether or not someone should have an M-rated game, because it's just that, a game. It doesn't cause cirrhosis of the liver, it doesn't give you cancer. It's a fucking game, and yet the government somehow feels the need to step in and outlaw them to the point of those that do the above two things. Do you really think that the entertainment industry should become some political boondoggle for politicians to leverage for votes? <img src=smilies/headshake.gif>
