How would you like cigarette-like warnings on your video games?

“WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior.”

That’s the warning that would be placed on all games rated Teen and above, if a new bill by Rep. Joe Baca gets passed. I think that labeling is just a tad over the top. We haven’t seen any studies that definitively prove that gaming causes aggressive behavior. We have seen that particularly aggressive people can be egged on by games…and music…and TV…and movies…
