Forums - Gaming Discussion - Regulation in Gaming Question

.....What is the thought on governmental regulation of the gaming industry from a customer perspective, and what does it mean on a business end?


The Democratic Nintendo that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Depends. If it's restricting things for sale to only persons above a certain age, I've no problem with it. Anything more than that however... would definitely be a problem for me.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.

Ideally we shouldn't need the government to step in here, but current self regulation has not kept up at all with all of the exploitative practices companies are coming up with these days. I'd like to see some regulation of the monetization and loot systems available to companies, not unlike the gaming commissions that oversee casinos (forcing them to be more transparent about odds, consistent for every player, age restricted, etc). They can keep the hell out of censoring content, though.
