IMG has posted a new feature called Mature Games and Minors, and looks at how the game industry has had its share of controversy over the years about the violence and sex found in video games. This summer's "Hot Coffee" fiasco has even focused the attention of lawmakers on video games. IMG's Michael Miller explores the history of controversy in the video game industry and its impact.

It's a pretty good article, one that's reasonably unbiased and gives fair coverage of the issue. Not the sort of opinionated crap you could expect to find on IGN.

It is kind of sad how politicians and lawyers need scapegoats in order that they might justify their existance.

Lets all find something/someone else to blame all of our problems on because we are unable to take responsibility for our own actions.
[/sarcasm]

If we start blaming things like the media or video games for our problems, where will it stop? Will society end up blaming a group of people for their problems? I hope not, because we all know how that ends.

with grand theft auto san andreas are the ps2 and xbox version Ao now or just the PC version.

One thing that I don't like is that fact that younger kids 5-14 can rent and buy games that are not suitable for their age group either they can do it by themselves or their parents buy/rent the game just to shut them up. Video game violence and debauchery is one thing but what about the violence that can be seen on tv?. A youth that isn't watching a controlled tv by their parents can easily see the same kind of actions as in videogames. One way or another youth will be exposed to violence. But in reality money makes the world go around.
