Over the years, video games seem to have gotten a fairly ill repute in the media, on Capitol Hill and even in the home.
Numerous politicians, activists groups and parents tried time and time again, to force legislation through to heavily regulate the sale of video games, but these attempts have generally failed.
Most recently in 2011, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, citing video games as protected speech under the First Amendment. The California law, which sought to restrict the sale of violent games to minors, was struck down, concluding that studies were too vague and that video games had no more of an influence on children than television and pictures.
