We reported previously about a Californian
wookie Senator who was trying to have legislation passed that would have games labelled as dangerous. Now, New York assemblyman Brian Kolb seeks to take it a step further, and actually lock the disgusting things up.
Kolb would have New York lawmakers place some rather strenuous restrictions on games, accusing them of "advocating or glamorizing" a litany of egregious offenses, such as "commission of a violent crime, suicide, sodomy, rape, incest, bestiality, [and] sado-masochism," among other vile, despicable things.
His solution? Lock them away! Kolb suggests that such games be "inaccessible to the general public" or "in a sealed and locked container." Games are THAT dangerous, folks.
I hope this doesn’t get passed, and eventually make it’s way here – after all, most of my very favourite games have my character butt-raping his bloody, beaten family with hamsters. What the hell am I gonna play?
