Game ratings: forget the kids, it’s about protecting the grown-ups

Nice piece on Rock, Paper, Shotgun about proposals to enforce the age ratings on video games:

I’d argue that enforcing age ratings on games is perhaps essential, and not because I’m worried about seven year olds playing GTA IV. I’m worried about 31 year olds not being able to play GTA IV.

One reply on “Game ratings: forget the kids, it’s about protecting the grown-ups”

I complained to Toys R Us the other week for exactly that reason. They had a PS3 display with a kid playing Resistance 2 on a 50″ Plasma. The screen faces directly towards the main entrance of the shop. There is no excuse in a shop aimed at kids. They totally ignored me though.
