    The video game ratings system should be revamped to make it easier for parents and children to understand, a UK government-backed review has said. The review was carried out by psychologist Dr Tanya Byron, who has recommended a new rating for games aimed at children aged 12 plus.
    Games currently get a mandatory review by classifiers only if they have "human sexual activity" or "gross violence".
    Dr Byron has also called for a UK body to oversee children's internet safety.

    Not sure what I think of this. On one hand I feel it's a good thing (I don't play overly violent games such as Manhunt or even Grand Theft Auto), on the other hand I feel it could demonise the video game industry (would Manhunt, for example, be treated the same as a film like Saw for example???)

    You are an adult anyway, its mainly children the rating is aimed at, quite a lot of your children play games that is way too bad for them because the ratings are not there or inappropriate.
