Parents group: Violent games not the problem
Parents group, Mothers Against Violence, have admitted that, as far as violent games goes, "the buck stops with the parents."
Representatives of the group were participating in a live debate on BBC Radio Leeds when they admitted that games were not directly to blame for violent behaviour and desensitisation to it in children.
The representative said on air: "I'm not directly blaming games, I'm blaming parents. If someone doesn't do something where does it stop?"
One of the wider problems noted in the show was that many parents were not paying attention to the information placed on packaging to help them make informed decisions about which games are suitable for their kids.
The UK is set to switch to PEGI ratings as the sole standard for video game ratings as part of the controversial Digital Economy Bill, currently being rushed through parliament.
