    Post EU Considering Regulating Sale of Violent Games [Slashdot]

    Spamicles writes "European Union justice ministers met today in order to discuss the regulation of sales of violent video games to minors. Europeans were riled up last year when a German gunman shot several people before taking his life at a secondary school. A European Union Commissioner is taking advantage of the shootings last year called for stricter regulations in the video game industry. A motion introduced last month calls for legislators to "put in place all necessary measures to ban the sale of particularly violent and cruel video games.""Read more of this story at Slashdot.

    Oh for fuck's sake, here we go again with the baseless victimisation of videogames on the grounds that they 'warp children's minds'. Has any positive correlation between violent crime and gaming ever been established?
