With Jack Thompson seemingly a faded memory and local politicians slowly but surely accepting the roles of videogames in our society, it would be easy to assume that videogame censorship is a relic of the past.
However, this concept is far from true, a point that Adam Sessler of G4 quickly makes clear in his latest Soapbox segment.
Listening to Sessler, I agree wholeheartedly that game censorship is still present and that actions need to be taken in order to remind people about how games should be regarded the same as any other art form. I find it ridiculous that content M-rated games are treated as poison, while content in R-rated movies is largely given a free pass.
Of course, I also believe that for the fight against game censorship to be successful, gamers themselves have to be taken seriously.
