We all see many sensationalist claims being made about games, and we all probably remember the sometimes-amusing antics of Jack Thompson. It’s rather perplexing, however, to have someone in such a high position make these claims. If there is any evidence to back up the claims that the FCC Commissioner made, they weren't cited – and you can certainly expect some outcry from the gaming community regarding this.
This could lead to interesting battles between educators, gamers and gaming companies. Should the FCC even be making any assertions regarding people's computer use? I would very much like to see a Blizzard response to these statements.
