What about all the Free Software games one can get without actually buying them...
This horse bolted a long time ago.
I agree that there should be some advisory on games but the people to
rely on this is the PARENTS(say what? what's that a magic word?) not the people
who sell this.
I'm opposed to parents monitoring their child' PC in any way since that just gives the
child the idea that it is OK to give up their privacy and such like a child like an adult like any human being has the right to privacy.
But if little Timmy wants a video game chances are:
a) parents will need to buy it for them
In which case they should actually do the PARENTing(there's that magic word again)
thing and verify that said game is actually okay for 'lil Timmy
b) Timmy will save for it through allowance
Can't really do much here unless you actually take your PARENTing(ow looky... magic word) responsibilities seriously and actually have a DIALOG(NOT a MONOLOGUE) with your child about things and he might actually tell you about such things.
c) Timmy will get it from "other" sources
Same as step (b) though Timmy should be informed about what he is doing:
infringing copyright(NOT STEALING) and what this MIGHT(there's no say he will buy it and keep even if he likes it) mean.
So yes... PARENTS(magic word!) should be doing PARENTing(magic word!) and
work WITH their children to make them productive NON-SHEEP-LIKE creatures of
society. Anything else would be gross incompetence on their part.
