    Yet going around topless, and having shows on network tv featuring nudity is perfectly fine, yet violence is viewed as horrible. It's like Bizarro America.

    Brazil should just stick to futbol, carnival, and leaving the rainforest and video games alone.

    If someone wants to run around thinking they are a mage or wood elf, then let them have their bags of holding and sticks they call wands. No matter how many times they cast Magic Missile or Mordenkainen's Faithful Watchdog they're not real weapons

    And Counter-Strike could be seen as a useful tool in the "war on terror" if you buy into that neo-con view

    This reminds me of the video game laws in Germany.

    The humans in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter on the N64 were replaced by robots....

    Sadly, you're right. I wish it was more like that here.

    I should be a football coach because I excel at Madden, no wait. I should be a pro skater because I'm good at the Tony Hawk games.

    It will be interesting to see what effect, if any, this has.
