gotta love the yanks...
sat there polishing their guns and wondering if its video games that cause violence in society.
i think that a rating system would be good for games. we dont want little kiddies playing manhunt do we? the problem is that in the UK almost all games that should be rated ARE rated. so... wtf is this £9m going to do? write 1 bit of legislation to force shops to adhere to the law? (£9m???)
the fact is that most kids are more tech savvy than there parents (i have been since i was about 7 and worked out the video recorder - its been downhill since then!) and that a lot of parents are just bad parents.
i had loads of dodgy things when i was a 'yoof' that my parents didnt know about. so expecting parents to keep such a close eye on the kids is impossible. also teenagers need their privacy... not having parents 'spin' their bedrooms for contraband (would be like shawshank redemption!)
imho this is just a waste of £9m. since schools teach so little nowadays (grammar, spelling, maths, english etc) why not do all this at school? why do the usual and waste £9m on crap adverts and useless brochures?
