NY Games Bill

GamePolitics has word on a proposed bill in New York State to protect minors from any game that "glamorizes... the commission of a violent crime, suicide, sodomy, rape, incest, bestiality, or sado-masochism." If passed, the bill would require such games to carry warning labels, be kept sealed from general customer access, and be available for parents to examine. The article points out the bill's vague language (in particular the use of the term "glamorizes") and conflicts with the US Constitution make it unlikely that this will end up sticking as a law as currently written.

is this the bill that the Blind ONE sponsored that includes language about racism?

In any case, these bills actually serve a purpose.....it allows the citizenry to see which politico is simply attempting to raise his/her profile rather than institute laws that actually make a difference. At this point every single one of them should know that such a bill doesn't stand a chance.

BTW, which games contain "sodomy, rape, incest, bestiality, or sado-masochism.....?

More importantly, where can I get them? Tongue
