California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently signed
a new bill that is expected to come into effect January 1, 2006. The bill would ban the sale or rental of "violent video games" to children. This includes any game that show such things as killing, maiming or sexual assault on any characters that are depicted as human, and are classified to be atrocious, cruel and/or heinous.
Not surprisingly, it looks like the Entertainment Software Association will file suit
to stop this law.
