I think this has to do with drug related problems amoungst other things with that age groups then with violent games.

No. The numbers aren't in for 2002, but between 1976-2000 Gang Related Homicide was number 1. Drug related was 4, accounting for 5.5%. You better not come back and say "I think" unless you have facts.

Exaclty, but should we bar all 17 year olds from everything that morons happen to sue over for supposedly "causing violence bullshit".

OK, slowly this time - and in plain English.

No. People that raise these lawsuits against games see them as evil or corrupting. They are neither. The issue at stake here (and always has been) whether people of this age are capable of either A) Make a judgment call whether it's real or fake OR B) Are sane enough to know the difference. For good measure, we can add C) Have enough guidence at home to help them with A or B.


I'm not going to respond unless you start to do a little research. I've already wasted more than enough good time checking my own than this is worth.
