Video games have gone through a lot when it comes to the law and when it comes to violence and etc. It seems as though now, the Supreme Court has actually decided to take up the case of Video games and their effect on the young people (those under 18) and if video games should be protected under the 1st Amendment and if they should be labeled as a Art. They are trying to make certain video games (Mature rating) obscene and obscene materials can be regulated by law and aren't protected by free speech (or the 1st amendment in general). Not to mention that for video games to be labeled as "obscene," video games as a whole will have to lack literary, artistic, political or scientific value.
I think this is ridiculous and the fact that the Supreme Court decided to take this case up is kind of... stupid, retarded, idiotic and what have you. When will they stop trying to ban certain games, or games in general because of their content. Video games know no age or sex, some are for the younger kids while others are for the more mature crowd, if this actually goes through then video games will truly be a child's play thing.
