PSXE Poll Update: Parents Need To Pay Closer Attention
The violent video game debate continues to rage, and some politicians want to make the ESRB ratings legally binding.
However, while a lot of readers here at PSXE do agree with that, a few more simply say parents need to be parents; i.e., pay closer attention to what their children play.
This isn't an argument that has an easy solution. While making the ratings legally binding probably can't hurt, it may also only prove to be a band-aid, as clueless parents will still buy their kids Grand Theft Auto V. Perhaps education is the best possible method; make it plain to parents that in fact, it might be a good idea to do their research and accordingly pass some household rules. Then again, as the ESRB has been around for almost 19 years now and the education is always easily accessible, maybe parents will just continue being clueless.
This week, it's all about the PS4, which may be announced later this month. What do you expect from the announcement? Do you think you'll be blown away? Or are you bracing for disappointment?
