Kmart announced it will refuse sale of mature-rated games to anyone under 17, using a barcode scanner that will prompt cashiers to ask for identification from young people.
After Kmart's news conference in Washington, Wal-Mart announced it would adopt the same policy. In a letter last month to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the president of Toys R Us said the practice is already in place at his company's stores.

Sessions applauded the move, but said he would prefer that retailers stop selling mature-rated games, as Montgomery Ward and Sears, Roebuck and Co. already have done.
Sessions said he believes "intense involvement" with violent video games can cause a young person to become violent. "Common sense should tell us that positively reinforcing sadistic behavior, as these games do, cannot be good for our children," said Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan. "We cannot expect that the hours spent in school will mold and instruct a child's mind but that hours spent playing violent games will not."

That makes me mad. Like most other people I'm not violent from the game, but from other people! The games are the only way I can take out my agression with seriously hurting someone. What do all the doctors and stuff know, they never grew up with video games like ours.

The buearocratic defenders strike again! Sigh... but this is basically our fault. We are the ones that elect people like clinton. All I can can say is do NOT elect gore and lieberman. Leiberman;s goal is to make this same policy a law for ALL software vendors. Frankly, who the hell are they to decide what we can and can't do? Hell, along that same line of thinking, lets start executing people who've ever muttered

What you people don't understand that if the kids can get a hold of Objecionable material they start to degrade the society and if that happens the corperation called the American Goveernment will lose money and cause the buarocartics in washington to lose money too. You guys must understand that if your corperation was going to lose money you would take action. Thats why microsoft was attacked. IM NOT ADVOCATING THE GOVERNMENT. so you don't like go to a differt corperation. I realy hate being owned and its apperent through action like this.

The part about violence is ridiculous. These people are really stupid to think that kids behavior will become dangerous form playing violent video games. Little kids playing swords after they watch power rangers does not mean they want to blow up schools. WAKE UP PARENTS!

Sometimes I am damn glad I live inCanada despite the crappiness of ourdollar. Not that I am not 17 anyways,but these things are just getting silly.Inform people about violence, make surethey don't think it's OK, then we willbe taking a first steptowards fixingthis stuff. I have been playing violentvideogames since I was 10, and I am now17 and still know the difference betweenright and wrong. And I agree with Ben,whoever he is, about his comments on theschool system. I am not a loner anymore,I made a concious decision to throw offthat persona. Loners are only half thefault of their peers. When they startbelieving what they are called they arejust as much at fault as anyone.Awareness is the key, but Big Brothershould not be watching us.

I am 16 years old and when I was 12 I bought Doom II. Now it was a good game and all but I had no urge to go out shooting people with D. Barrel Shotguns or Blowing people to shreds with a Rocket Launcher. I just thought that that was really fun in the game. So whoever goes out and blames some violent video or computer game for some crazy nutcase shooting a school is a ****ing MORON!!!!!!-Thank You

I think parents need to get smacked in the face and waken up to reality, its THERE responsibility to make sure that there kids are not playing Violent Video Games. PARENTS OF AMERICA, STOP BEGGING THE GOVERNMENT TO BABY-SIT YOUR KIDS AND TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY ON YOUR-SELF. Kids DO NOT act violent because of games or TV, they do it because there parents dont watch and make sure they dont. I am so sick of this Video Games = School Shootings bullshit. I play nothing BUT violent video games, and I am perfectly normal, I never took a gun to school or some crazy shit like that. The ONLY way a game could cause a person to do such a thing is if the person was ****ed up mentally to begin with, and if thats the case, then PARENTS of that child should take the responsibility of caring for this child and making sure they dont play these games. Stop restricting the fun to others because a few mentally unstable kids got a hold of guns and shot up a school, and there parents decided to blame it on Video Games, Movies, TV ETC... When the blame should have ben put on the Parents to begin with.

i think that those laws are stupid!! What kid is stupid enough to take a gun and blow someones head off?Parents are older so they think kids should respond to every snap of their fingers. If their arent games with guns,kids will never learn that killing someone is bad!!!

Parents needed for underage gamers

I'm TOTALY against the government on this one the reason people do all that bad sh*t is becuase there mentaly ill and need serious help (from parents...) ... But it's fine with me as long as small stores where real gamers go dont make u give ID.. (EB, Babages, software, etc..... ). NO REAL gamer buys games at wallmart or Kmart LOL hehehe...

Parents needed for underage gamers

I think It's ****ing bullshit that parents are blaming OUR games for THEIR (the parents) **** Ups. If they don't ****ing like what we're ****ing doing then they should take ****ing charge of their own kids! You assholes can take your laws and ram them up your asses with a white hot pole. Shit, they don't like violence? check DD out all the ****ing violence a parent needs [url removed]

Parents needed for underage gamers

I mean **** that, we should be able to do what ever we want and see the same. So **** you if you want to take that privalige from us. Any one can look at violence or nude chicks. So if you don't want kids looking at it don't let them its your own fault (parents) if you let them see it. And as the great Mr Bean says

Parents needed for underage gamers

ffs. millions of people are killed for millions of different reasons, when a kid goes into a school and kills some students they try blaming the nearest thing, from music to games, never mind the thousands of other people being killed each day on the streets. if anything the games are keeping the people off the streets and in their houses. Take away the games what are you left with?

Parents needed for underage gamers

Thats ****ed up!!!! if they stop selling games like solier of fortune then kids wont be able to shoot the shit out of people on their computers, so they will find other forms of entertainment, probably shooting the shit out people in real life. Thats if they stop selling

Parents needed for underage gamers

this guy thats sitting there talking about 'molding' kids minds at school is...'wrong.'their minds arent 'molded,'they are simply being taught new things, so i really dont think that theres anything wrong with 'voilent' games, and looking at the other comments, most people agree with me

Parents needed for underage gamers

Why do ppl do this to us, 90% of gamers are kids anyway that have a thirst for artificial blood, do you really think adults want to waste their time playing games? Besides, what's the big deal anyway? TV is gradually turning more and more innapprpriate for kids even on a saturday morning....Violent games don't make killers either, they're for kids who find life stressing, and go home and take out their anger on some AI instead of some people....that makes sence don't it...i'm 16 and still gaming.......It's not evil......Peace out

Parents needed for underage gamers

ok really beyond all these peoples cursing, im gonna agree with the parent blamers because it is their fault and restricting the sale of games is only gonna affect the game makers and cause them to loose profits. When you start hoding it off peopple wont buy the game theyll go on the net. warez sites are all over if you cant buy it at the store everyone will download them.
