Note to Erik Rutkins, this is something that affects Matrix Games too.

Wow, the good ole' "Video games cause all the sh*t in the world" thinking translated into actually proposing laws! OMFG! Can't we blame the financial crisis on everyone that ever played Capitalism or any of the NNN Tycoon games? Why not a law or two prohibiting games depicting the financial market?

Oh, we have this crap since years here with the so called blame on "Killerspiele" beeing the problem for all the problems with the "rebelling" and more agressive youth today. Decades ago it was comics, Rock'n Roll and the TV that got blamed for it. It will never stop ;)

Just imagine how many people get beat up every day by WitP players that forgot to set something up correctly and lost a couple of CV's before roaming the streets insane by sheer frustration

Sadly, it's rapidly becoming something of a concern as more and more legislators see "Blame it on the games!" as the new version of "Blame it on the rock music!"

There is some hope though: someone finally realized that Jack Thompson went over the line, and put him under
