Minnesota Loses Gamer Legislation

Ars technica has the story.

This is just one of many suchs laws that have been struck down due to their lack of constitutionality and I don’t blame the ESA for fighting them. The truth of the matter is, parents must check the rating on the box when they purchase a game for their kids.

It’s time for parents to start parenting again, and to stop expecting Wal-mart to do it for them. Go shopping with your kids, read reviews on the popular video game websites. If you’re not sure where to start, google or wiki the phrase “video games” and see what comes up. There’s no excuse for not knowing what your kids are playing, and there’s no excuse for sending them off to go shopping by themselves without knowing what they are planning to bring home before you let them go.
