Parents will be educated on game ratings

August 11, 2006

Albany -- Georgia's attorney general wants to make sure parents know what kind of video games their children are playing.

Next week Thurbert Baker's office will kick off a public service campaign to educate people on video game ratings.

You can find the ratings on entertainment software packaging.

The ads are aimed at helping parents choose games appropriate for their families.

Video game salespeople at EB Games in Albany say that the rating system is so important to some parents, it's the first thing they look for.

"Sometimes they won't pick up the game if it is mature rating because of blood, gore, violence and thing like that. Some parents are pretty strict with it," said EB Games manager Jeremy Roach.

Attorney General Baker is working with the Entertainment Software Ratings Board and the Georgia Parent Teacher and Retail Associations on the education program.
