I liked Richard's comment that parents need to do a better job with being involved with what games their kids play. I think that is very true and no government or rating agency can replace that kind of guidance.

I was once at a Gamestop when GTA 3 had just been released and there was a little 6 or 7 year old kid begging his mom to buy it. The mom seemed really clueless about games kind of like how my parents were clueless about rock bands when I was a kid.

I took the liberty to approach her and just tell her that the game has a lot of adult violence in it and adult themes in general and that I wouldn't let my two boys play that game at their age.

She seemed to receive me well and was polite. But I did notice that she purchased the game for him anyway. Some parents are just too unplugged and they end up needlessly exposing their kids to things that really aren't age appropriate.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
