Agreed - Government growth is ALWAYS bad. And while I recognize the validity of your point that many adults buy adult games for their kids, I have seen many instances where a kid at EBX can buy games likeGTA:Vice City or Hitman 2( 2 adult games I witnessed being sold to kids looking about 11).
The trouble is, for some inexplicable reason, the spotlight is not on movie theatres or Best Buy's for selling 'R' rated movies. It is on videogames. So, fair or not, game makers and game retailers have to be smarter than they have been if they wish to keep making a living doing what they are doing. It was just as unfair to the comics industry (that was largely destroyed by controversy), but fair or not, it is a cross the retailers, developers, and publishers have to bear.
