Michigan Violent Games Law Thrown Out

GavelThe Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has gained another victory in Michigan against a permanent injunction against the state’s violent video games law. The main argument for the prosecutors were that the violent games are interactive so kids get to participate in the violence instead of just watching it as they would on TV or a movie.

The defense used the argument that it could be just as easily be said that the interactive element in video games acts as an outlet for minors to vent their violent or aggressive behavior, thereby diminishing the chance they would actually perform such acts in reality.” The ESA is also seeking out reimbursement of it’s legal fees as it did in Illinois.
