GamePolitics notes a new bill out of New York which seeks to prohibit "the sale to minors of certain rated video games
containing a rating that reflects content of various degrees of profanity, racist stereotypes or derogatory language, and/or actions toward a specific group of persons." It goes on to say: "These games, containing adult images such as morbid violence, rape, alcohol and illegal drug use, as well as other malicious acts, are not appropriate for children under 18. This legislation will regulate the sale of such games." The full text of the bill
is available. It also suggests that children who are exposed to in-game crimes are more likely to participate in real-life crime.
