Game Warning Labels

Rep. Baca Introduces Legislation to Make Violent Video Games Sold With Health Warning Label outlines legislation introduced by US Congressman Joe Baca requiring that video games with an ESRB rating higher than "T" carry an additional warning reading: "WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior." The California representative's is seeking the accountability from the game industry that we are seeking from Washington:

We must hold the video game industry accountable and do everything in our power to ensure parents are aware of the detrimental effects that violent games can have before making decisions on which games are appropriate for their children to play,” concluded Rep. Baca. “I am proud to introduce the Video Game Health Labeling Act of 2009, and am hopeful my legislation can work to stop the growing influence of violent media on America’s children and youth.
