This thread has gone pretty off topic, where the discussion should’ve been around the potential consequences of mandated classifications for retailers (which honestly wouldn’t change anything since they’re enforced anyway) or even the fact that physical games wouldn’t be allowed to be sold without an ESRB rating (again, which wouldn’t have much of an effect), most of this thread turned into circlejerks about constitutional rights, effects of videogame violence on children and censorship.

Now, I’m not sure how many of you actually checked OP’s link, but the story has been edited to reflect that the legislation has been denied for being unconstitutional. So the discussion should be over.

Next time: STICK TO THE TOPIC

As a note, not in the US.

That’s just flat out wrong.
