The Supreme Court has spoken out in regards to the law in California that would have made it illegal to sell violent video games to minors, etc.:

Very interesting to see and read the thoughts of the Supreme Court members in regards to video games, etc. :yes:

Do you agree with their decision, or not?

Comments or Opinions?

One time I agree with their decision. Games should not be banned.

I'm glad the court ruled that games are protected under the First Amendment. While I understand and respect the desire to protect children from games intended for a more mature audience than can handle that content appropriately, it is not the government's place to do that. That responsibility should fall on the legal guardian of a child. I can only hope that this ruling will reinforce that concept to opponents of the gaming medium and spur them to work with the industry and gamers, rather than against us.

The Entertainment Software Association is now seeking reimbursement for the legal fees they incurred while fighting this law. They filed a motion with the Supreme Court looking for $1.1 million to be paid by California. I bet the tax payers in that state aren't going to be happy about that!
