Hillary gets political on computer games

Grand Theft Auto is under political attack again. Hillary Clinton has publicly announced video games as a ‘major threat’ to moral health in The Sunday Times(subscription). I sigh and shake my head and think ‘oh no Hillary! Don’t make nice with the republicans over computer games!”. And I really don’t understand why we’re talking about kids playing games that were designed for adults, anyway. What is that all about? These games were never intended to be played by 10 year olds, and for a reason. Maybe the discussion should be more about how we enforce the age limitations on games. Wouldn’t that be more realistic?
