For some of us it will never be over. You weren't there, man. You didn't pump in quarter after quarter after quarter only to have Shang Tsung kick your ass again and again.

Hey dummy this was already ruled unconstitutional by the supreme Court, try and pay attention

Can't we just ban politicians from public places?

New Jersey?  Are you kidding?  They see more violence driving to Wal Mart that I see in 10 hours of Borderlands.

It would be perfectly reasonable to require parental supervision in areas with games like this.

delusional is not stereotype, it's delusional.

please resubmit with low hanging fruit comment on NJ pollution/air quality while ignoring that the manufacturing base of the state was a major benefactor to the growth of the nation. amazingly, pollution is an side effect of industry.

Parents don't supervise their kids at home playing these games, so I doubt that'd work. Does anyone parent anymore? Or is it more of a "JWoww and Bieber will do it for me" kinda mentality we have going on...

Well, violent crime has been on a dramatic rise lately...what's that?  It's been on a decline for decades?  But, but, porn and video games are teh debil!!

That brings me back to my youth, we'd go and play Pac-man and Galaga for hours and so many quarters spent that we resolved to the casual dumpster diving for old bottles and cans, which of course degenerated into the odd mugging and hostage taking.  But it was a simpler time, and when the next generation of games with more realistic graphics came about, we no longer could contain ourselves from the decapitations for fun on our way home.  I have to admit that I miss Timmy, who'd sit on top of this thing we built, where he'd tip the barrels over to try and trip us, and how we'd laugh as we'd hit him with a hammer until he feel off of it.

This is why we need to get God back into New Jersey bowling alleys and movie theaters.

I hear in Canada Mortal Kombat was outlawed because so many people were allying themselves with Elder Gods and ripping people's heads off.

I can confirm this rumour. The game warped our young, impressionable minds to a terrible extent. Now, whenever I perform oral sex on a man I hear the words "FINISH HIM" booming inside my brain.

Dear Democratic Legislators,

This topic has been proven time and again to be irrelevant, please drop the subject for crying out loud.

oh, and while i'm at it...

Dear Republican Legislators,

Boobies and naked parts are of no harm to anyone...


One group wants to ban violence, the other wants to ban sex... If they both got their way there would literally be nothing but "reality" TV left as entertainment in this country...

Western story-telling is driven by one thing: Conflict, of which violence and sex are a big part of... This goes all the way back to stories like Beowulf, The Odyssey, The Epic of Gilgamesh, hell even the damn Bible has violence and sex as a source of conflict to drive the characters...

Any game with a firearm in it, including the hunting simulators, should require a background check in the same database as the democrats are proposing for gun purchases. Let's not forget the Connecticut shooter honed his assault tactics with Call of Duty and Warcraft. And if it doesn't happen this round, you better believe it will next time the repubs control the government and another shooting happens. Turnabout is fair play, you dumbass rights-stripping liberals.

I spent a fair amount of my paper route money on Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, and Karate Champ.  Then Gauntlet and Double Dragon.  I could probably feed an entire 3rd world nation with the money I spent in those stupid bowling alleys.  It never made me violent.  Kids in marching band me violent.

So now I'm trolling.  Violent video games in terms of access to kids should be treated no differently than porn.  A kid should not be able to walk up to a TV screen in a mall and watch porn then or see video game or movie representing recreational murder.

If you are a parent and want to rent porn for you kids or Mortal Kombat, go for it.  Otherwise a State/City by-law putting rules on these games being played/viewed in public is perfectly reasonable.

I've long said the national violence and obesity epidemics could be solved simply by getting ridding our movie theaters of the scourge that is Ms Pac Man.

/Seriously has no idea what to expect to find in a modern arcade. Last time I even touched one of those machines it was X-Men vs. Street Fighter II.

I have two kids and we are very careful.  I don't shield them from everything but I never let them use the computer or TV unsupervised without the proper controls.

Makes me want to see a porn parody of the game...

I wonder if they made one of those porn satires for Mortal Kombat yet... They used to make up silly alternate names like "Mortal Kumbat" but for the last couple of years it seems they just put the original movie title with "A XXX Satire" right below it...

Then be a farking parent and ensure your kid isn't watching this. Commercial establishments are not responsible for your crotchfruit, no matter how much you wish they were.

Guess what? When I was a kid and had to go into a gas station, my eyes always went to the dirty magazine rack. My mom would grab my hand and pull me away so I couldn't figure out what was behind the wrapping. That's parenting. If you don't want your kids to look at violent games or porn, then be a farking parent and make sure they can't see it.
