Summary
  • In Dec 1993 over 100 games manufacturers appeared before Senator Joseph Lieberman, chairman of the Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Regulation and Government Information, to discuss the possibility of a federal ratings system for video games. The government gave the games industry one year to develop a ratings system to judge games' violence and sexual content. Despite the possibility of government intervention, some analysts speculate the games makers welcome a ratings controversy because of free publicity and deals that could be made with major retail chains. Sega has already announced its Video Game Rating Council (VGRC), a group of educators, sociologists and psychologists; and several independent groups have proposed ratings systems. Many experts label any ratings as a form of censorship and point out the inherent subjectivity that will plague any ratings board.
