Poll claims 72 percent of adults support violent video game law

GTA: San Andreas

With the U.S. Supreme Court getting ready to review a California law restricting the sale of violent video games to minors, Common Sense Media is claiming that a recent poll shows a large majority of adults are in favor of the law.

Common Sense Media, a nonprofit parents’ group, cites a Zogby poll conducted in August that surveyed 2,100 adults. About 72 percent of those adults said they support the law, with 65 percent of parents saying they are "concerned about the impact of ultra-violent video games on their kids."

To further advocate their message Common Sense Media posted a video on YouTube highlighting the violence seen in games such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Postal 2. The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear the case on November 2nd.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
