Senator Joseph Lieberman even connects violent games to recent school shootings. "These games and their awful ads are part of a cumulative toxic culture of violence that is enveloping our children," says Lieberman.
The video game industry admits some games are inappropriate, even offensive, but argues that there's been aggressive imagery in children's stories for hundreds of years.
The same debate that has raged over television shows and movies has now made its way to the computer game arena. And like television and film, this industry insists it's up to parents to decide what, exactly, gets into their children's brains.
