Imagine being told as an adult you can’t play a certain game because of the violence it influences. Well, it might sound ridiculous, but this could definitely become an issue we all face in the future.
According to the Illinois General Assembly, Illinois state Rep. Marcus Evans Jr introduced a bill to ban the sale of “all violent video games.” In case you’re baffled, this means you can no longer purchase games like Grand Theft Auto. Evans said, “The bill would prohibit sales of some of these games that promote activities that we’re suffering from in our communities.” Congress recently went through the bill’s first reading and has referred to the Rules Committee, but no final rulings have been made so far.
Is this necessary? Should video games be regulated?
