Legislation Across the Pacific

| 19 May 2006 11:41

The US isn't the only country looking to regulate video games. South Korea is moving to regulate the amount of time someone can spend playing a game after another kid died after a marathon gaming session. While I take a "let parents decide" approach on these issues, it's rather frightening to read about people dying after playing for 50 hours straight. I'm not quite sure if the legislative approach is the road to take--Someone addicted enough to play for 50 hours is going to overcome whatever government can do--but unfortunately, I have no better ideas.
