That was actually quite a good response. A guy who wants real data to make an informed decision, who thinks sedentary behavior is a cause for obesity but that games themselves aren't the problem, and who thinks specific situations (ie, young children playing exceptionally violent roles) are cause for concern but isn't kneejerking his response around.

Good jorb.

That's my view on it.. Movies, and Music all have their ratings systems backed by legislation, though the ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board) was started due to legislation, there is no enforcement, maybe some other politicians will see the light and parents will be given a pause to think about what they are buying their children.

It will be interesting to see what is next accused of leading sweet little sunflowers of joy into becoming violent psychopaths with no souls

Movie ratings are voluntary. There are no legal requirements to use them.

Android mobile browser. Which I assume is some version of chrome. But I admit that assumption could be horrifically wrong.
