This weeks Extra Credit: Freedom of Speech



This was probably they most interesting, relevant and important video I've seen in this video series about games. It's mainly about the case 'Schwarzenegger v. EMA' which was picked up by the Supreme Court and will hear this case on November 2, 2010.  What does this mean for you?  Well, if the supreme court rules in favor of Schwarzenegger, games will essentially be labeled as NOT as an art form and will be regulated differently from virtually every other entertainment medium today.  Thus, any M rated games will be much harder to produce and would essentially kill the game industry today.

What can you do to help?  Click on this link, gamers' petition to voice your opinion to fight this outrage!
