New bill in Congress to put games with suicide, Under lock

Post by MGSfan32 on Wed Jan 28, 2009 10:25 pm

Ah yes. It's another one of those nasty bills being tossed around in Congress. This new one from New York is taking the few recent bills into a whole new level.

Remember when assemblyman Keith L.T. Wright (quite possibly, no affinity to Phoenix Wright) proposed to have kids protected from racist games and its ilk. And before that, representative Joe Baca introduced another bill which wanted those obtrusive warning labels on video game boxes.

Via GamePolitics,
we now hear that assemblyman Brian Kolb steps into the scene, this time
with a new bill, A2837. The objective of this bill is pretty much the
same: to protect minors from mature titles. But more specifically, that
these games should come with a warning label that has the following:


18+
WARNING, SALE OR RENTAL TO ADULTS ONLY. MAY CONTAIN EXPLICIT DEPICTIONS
DESCRIPTIVE OF OR ADVOCATING ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING:

  • COMMISSION OF A VIOLENT CRIME
  • SUICIDE
  • SODOMY
  • RAPE
  • INCEST
  • BESTIALITY
  • VIOLENT RACISM
  • RELIGIOUS VIOLENCE
  • SADO-MASOCHISM
  • SEXUAL ASSAULT
  • SEXUAL ACTIVITY
  • MURDER
  • MORBID VIOLENCE
  • ILLEGAL USE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL

PARENTAL ADVISORY.
That's
very specific. And a huge list too! What's to become of box artists -
are they to be laid off now? And that's not the end of it either.

Kolb's bill also proposes that these types of games are to be kept under surveillance in an "inaccessible by the general public" and seemignly under lock and
key, "in a sealed and locked container." Any violators of this new rule
(once it gets approved) may be subject to a fine of around US$ 1000,
and may be put on the record for civil and criminal offenses.

Wtf this bill better not pass!!! rant If it does all the 18+ games will have a label half the size of the box its on. So it will look retarded and the young gamers wont be able to buy any of the games and it would hurt the gaming business Mad Crying or Very sad No
