Supreme Court Hears Violent Video Game Case Tomorrow

SkinnyGuy writes that with the Supreme Court set to hear arguments tomorrow for California’s controversial law aimed at keeping violent games away from minors, support for gamers and the games industry is coming from all corners. Writing for PCMag, Lance Ulanoff says the decision should rest in parents’ hands: “If I have real concerns, it’s up to me to argue it out with my son and take away the games or not buy them for him when he asks.” Game developer Daniel Greenberg wants to know “how government bureaucrats are supposed to divine the artistic value that a video game has for a 17-year-old,” adding that he’s “disheartened and a little perplexed to see [his] art and passion lumped in with cigarettes and booze.” The expectation within the legal community is that the statute should be found unconstitutional, and the Atlantic’s Garrett Epps points out the irony of Gov. Schwarzenegger’s involvement with the legislation.
