Attention!

Our year-long sponsorship with Nicalis is ending today (May 31st, 2016). We would like to thank Nicalis for their support over the last year, keeping GoNintendo ad-free for 365 wonderful days. It's been a pleasure to provide all of you with an ad-free year, but sadly we must now return to a more traditional ad-sponsored layout. That will be happening later tonight.

President Obama calls for studies examining the effects of video game violence on young minds

"Congress will fund research into the effects that violent video games have on young minds." - President Obama

The ESA has commented on the call from President Obama...

"We concur with President Obama's call today for all Americans to do their part, and agree with the report's conclusion that 'the entertainment and video game industries have a responsibility to give parents tools and choices about the movies and programs their children watch and the games their children play. The same entertainment is enjoyed across all cultures and nations, but tragic levels of gun violence remain unique to our country. Scientific research and international and domestic crime data all point toward the same conclusion: entertainment does not cause violent behavior in the real world. We will embrace a constructive role in the important national dialogue around gun violence in the United States, and continue to collaborate with the Administration and Congress as they examine the facts that inform meaningful solutions."
