What is your favorite underrated videogame?
“Democratic West Virginia senator Jay Rockefeller has introduced a bill to congress that would task the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to study the effects of violent video games and other programs on children.
“Major corporations, including the video game industry, make billions on marketing and selling violent content to children,” Rockefeller said in a statement to his website. “They have a responsibility to protect our children. If they do not, you can count on the Congress to take a more aggressive role.”
The bill would direct the NAS to conduct a “comprehensive study and investigation” of the link between violent games and other violent video programming and harmful effects on children. More specifically, the NAS would be charged with looking into whether or not video games/programming cause children to act aggressively or “otherwise hurt their wellbeing,” and if so, determine if that effect is notably distinguishable from other types of media.
This study would also look at the “direct and long-lasting impact” of violent content on a child’s well-being.”
