[TG]New Congressional bill to require ID for all MATURE-rated video games - Page 2

post #11 of 55
I was ID'd only once and that was @ Wal-Mart when I bought Far Cry... I was only 17 at the time and M is 17+, according to the ESRB.

Political smack talk aside, I personally believe that our elected officials have way more important items on their agenda to take care of prior to frivolous bills such as this. We already have state laws that enforce this and I have seen it first hand when I bought GTA 4 at Best Buy, they required my ID since I look young, thank god I am 25 though and got to take it home with me.

Wal-Mart is super anal about all of their age restrictions. I still get carded sometimes buying spraypaint/games. Another thing is, any time someone is a new employee they card mostly everyone.

This won't do anything.
My sentiments exactly. 2 in a row!

If this bill passes we will all be treated to an orchestra of dieing screams of all the 13 year old halo players, and team speak will enter a golden age.

This is a good thing, we have all along been comparing video games to movies and saying that violent movies don't hurt people and violent games don't either, now you will be carded to buy a mature game just like your carded at the theatre for rated R movies. If this goes through then eveyone whos pissing and moaning about kids playing violent game can STHU and we can get truly mature games.

Umm, not sure where everyone heard selling games to minors was against the law. That's why there has been a bil hullabaloo(god, how I love that word)the last few years because the ESRB is a private endevour run by big wigs in the electronic gaming industry. Worst that happens to retailers that don't adhere is they get chastized by the ESRB and have to pay a fine to the organization, if they even care to, no criminal penaltys adhere to it. Now, if this passes that will change the whole story, and I am all for it. This will basically make Thompon's and Clinton's arguements moot if you actually have a law in effect that causes criminal and civil punishment for violating it, and you enforce it the same way they enfore sales of alcohol, tobacco, porn, and firearms to kids.
.....wow, I just had a vision of a M-Rated video game sting.

If this prevents at least one annoying 13-year old playing a online game with me, I would be more than happy.

It may or may not solve the problem because even though they cannot buy them in stores they will find them somehow , a lot of parents also play these games and thats where some kids get them from . I'm sure they will find a way around it just like every other bill and law.
