Wicked games

Top U.S. court stops ban on violent video games
Doom, the original bad-boy of violence in gaming

The country's highest court agreed with a federal court’s decision throwing out California’s rules preventing the access of violent video games to minors. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Sacramento said the law violated minors’ rights under the First and Fourteenth amendments.

The majority ruling in the case, Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, stated that video games, like books. plays and movies, are protected under the aforementioned sections of the Bill of Rights.
