    I was linked to this site yesterday that basically lets gamers of voting age to sign up to protest about issues affecting us -- for example, the push to make it illegal for minors to purchase/play games that are rated M. Basically this site is a believer that parents should be educated about video games, and that the burden of censorship (or lack thereof) rests with them, NOT with the government.

    So yeah, I signed up. Just the numbers alone can prob. make a difference, even if you never actually write a letter to congress or anything, but I think it's worth doing. Constitutional rights, etc. Why should video games be regulated so much more stringently than books or movies or TV? It's not like police are gonna come busting in and arrest/fine some kid for watching The Sopranos. So why is that different from GTA4 or the like?
