I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Politicked-off

Posted on Friday, December 2 @ 12:10:43 Eastern by Joe_Dodson
Wow. What a crazy week for video game politics. Things got silly right off the bat when NIMF (the National Institute of Media and the Family) tried to add a new letter to the ESRB in the form of a D+. Then, citing this lousy grade, Senators Hillary Clinton and Joe Lieberman introduced their new "Family Entertainment Protection Act," Federal legislation that would make selling sexy or violent games to children illegal.

While this new legislation is hardly surprising given Senator Clinton's reaction to the Hot Coffee fiasco, it's infuriating to think that the same woman who is crusading to get violent games out of the hands of children said two weeks ago an immediate pullout from Iraq would a "big mistake." She's against American children pretending to shoot people, but for young American men and women getting shot. Lady, we're supposed to be at war for the next ten years. Our kids need practice!

We shouldn't be taking Counter Strike out of Johnny's hands, we should be putting it in his classroom!

All animals, not just American children, pretend to kill each other. Few animals, though, have to fight heavily armed Iraqi insurgents. So of all, why should American young be the ones dissuaded from violent play? Bringing up peace-loving, passive youth and then shipping them to Iraq is just about the most ironic, f**ked up thing I've thought of all day. We're feeding our kids to a meat grinder while our Senators crusade against violent games. Talk about big mistakes.

And speaking of meat grinders, those crazy-asses at NIMF are citing cannibalism as the newest, fear-worthy epidemic in gaming. Referring to F.E.A.R., where it is implied that the main bad guy is eating the guts of a fallen soldier, N.I.M.F. President David Walsh says "It's something we've never seen before."

Really?

What, was he home-schooled? Where Walsh is clueless, Joe Lieberman is ludicrous, saying "It's just the worst kind of message to kids." What message is that? Eat people? Oh well, I guess Senators Lieberman and Clinton are experts on sending the worst kinds of messages.
