FPS Games & Minors

Bay Area Lawmaker Wants to Keep Minors from Buying Violent Video Games (thanks HomeLAN Fed) has word of an effort in the Bay Area to curtail minors' access to violent video games that would classify all first-person shooters as adult only by their very nature. Here's a bit:

Assemblyman Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) plans to introduce legislation this week that would keep minors from purchasing first shooter videogames, where players need to kill in order to advance.

“These first person shooter videogames really teach kids how to stalk and how to maim and torture and kill people,” Yee said. “That’s not what we should be doing for our kids.”

Yee is also a child psychologist, and he said, it is time to “draw the line.”

The bill would penalize retailers and other stores that sell the games to anyone under the age of 17. A second bill would require video game retailers to separate children's games from adult games.
