This same controversy came up years ago with Senator Lieberman and games like Mortal Kombat. The issue was whether games like that should even be made. He pressed for a rating system, which is now in place, but not enforced. This took the responsibility off of the game producers and put it on the stores. The net result: publishers are now free to make any content they want, and now a mature rated game is an easily obtainable taboo for kids. Why make a rating system that no one will enforce? The responsibility should and ultimately will always remain on the parents :(
