This is why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4iYRuCY6Pk Now, this kid could very well be a midget or a little person, if you prefer, but I have a sneaky suspicion he ain't. I have a 10-year-old son, and the kid in this video looks pretty much his age. Now, don't read into my post that I'm a proponent for censorship -- I'm not -- but this video should give you an indication as to why some folks are concerned. This is not an isolated incident of a kid playing an M-rated game, either. I think we all must admit that it's common enough. Personally, I keep RE4, GoW and other such games put away in my dresser drawer. My kids know I play those games, but they also know that they're not for them and they don't play them or see them being played. I also wouldn't tell anyone else how they need to parent their own children. That said, I am educated enough to know that the frontal lobes of a child's brain aren't fully developed at 10-years old, and some consideration should be given to kids playing this sort of thing. As for why people are perhaps inclined to allow the U.S. govt. to regulate video-game content, well people probably don't want to see an increase in real violent behavior. Again, I'm not making a judgment about it. I remain neutral on the matter, and I don't find solution in politics, really, when it comes to anything. But this should offer insight into why it's an issue, and dismissing it willy-nilly probably isn't going to make the issue go away.
