Senator warns of killing-machine games

One of the most vocal critics of video games in North America, Senator Leland Yee, has issued a stark warning to parents concerning the purchasing of adult-themed games in the run-up to Christmas,



A statement from Yee’s office read: Unfortunately, some parents don’t realise that in many top selling games, the player actively participates in and is rewarded for violence, including killing police officers, maiming elderly persons, running over pedestrians, and torturing women and racial minorities.

If there are violence and sexual themes in the title and cover picture, you can assume these themes are also in the game. Avoid the ‘first-person shooter’ and ‘third-person shooter’ killing-machine games.”
