Once again court is now in session. The Supreme Count will be in session later to hear to here the age old argument about violence in video games. The only difference in these cases seems to be the opinion of not national regulation but state wide. I honestly don’t know if that could be a “OK” thing or a bad thing from state to state. As this news hits the air waves, the number of shooter titles have gone up ever since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, destroyed every other FPS known to man last year. The profits are coming in as everything is going on around the United States, guess no one told the companies eh?
Call of Duty will not be in the spot light, but all the attention will be on the never ending Rockstar, and the great Grand Thief Auto series. No one, not even the courts can decide that these games, yes violent at times, are extremely profitable, and ladies and gentlemen, money talks. A lot of games don’t need to be thrown under the bus, but they aren’t getting as much attention. How has no one noticed, apparently in the press about the new twisted metal coming out, or Medal of Honor? State regulations should make things a little easier for developers, because some states can be much more lenient then others.
These hearings, meetings, arguments, and so forth can be brought up more and more over the course of time, but as far as I see it, while they are yelling at one another, I’ll be over here playing Call of Duty Black ops.
How about you guys, the public? What do you think about the violence in video games now a days, compared to “yes-er-year” when the ESRP rating was born into our lives?
