Gaming and Violence

Todd Hollenshead updated his .plan with a big Thank You to the gaming community for their support of his interview last night with 20/20 contributor John Stossil. I regret to say I missed this 20/20, but from what I'm hearing this was one of the first attempts by the game development community to speak to the charges being levied against them. Here's Todd's update:
Thanks for the enormous positive feedback on my interview with John Stossil. I'm fortunate to have had the opportunity to present what I believe is the sane, rational, and correct point-of-view. The support of the game community is greatly appreciated.
One point in the 20/20 commentary really stuck for me: do YOU want the government to decide what you can and can't play or watch? I don't. Hell, they can't make up their mind how much they want to charge us for new desks for Senators every year. They can go govern down their paychecks thank you. Leave me and my games alone.
