UK Video Game Study: "Protect the Children"
A British government-supported review of current video game ratings states that the current system needs to be overhauled, incorporating more stringent ratings and extra bloatware for new computers that would "protect" young people from the nasty-bad online world. I guess parents actually watching their kids use the computer would be too straightforward.
Carried out by psychologist Dr Tanya Byron, it says more games need to be rated by official bodies. It calls for the creation of a UK body to draw up and oversee a national strategy to keep children safe online. It also recommends that new PCs be sold with software that will help prevent children seeing harmful online content.
