Arjunas, you know how you don't see any AO games? That's because the industry is self-censoring. They know most retailers won't sell them, so they don't make them.The government would be the one to decide what was too violent, and what was not. And if a developer created a game decided too violent, they may be fined. So they simply wouldn't make any games that came close to that, and we would lose many games. And even if they were to pass the rule, the individual retailer still might not take a chance, and simply not sell the game.It's all in the court transcript. The thing about it banning sales to minors is just the tip. The actual effect it would have on the industry is devastating.
