Lieberman/Kohl Strike Back

Lieberman and Kohl

Continuing with their persistent war on the almighty and unholy evil that is videogames, Senators Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.) and Herb Kohl (D-Wisc.) have released a list of games that they feel parents should avoid buying for their children this holiday season.

Which titles made the grade? To no ones surprise, Grand Theft Auto III took the #1 position as the most violent videogame available, with Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Max Payne, Metal Gear Solid 2, Silent Hill 2, Twisted Metal Black, Time Crisis 2, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Devil May Cry, Soldier of Fortune Gold and Serious Sam rounding out the list.

This list comes just one week after Lieberman-Kohl sent letters to thirty-four videogame retail chains, criticizing them for selling games rated “Mature” to children under 17.

Fatsquatch

Discovered as a young 'Squatchling in a Pacific Northwest woodland area in the mid-70's, Fatsquatch was soon domesticated and introduced to the fledgling arcade scene, where he became addicted to the magical sights and sounds of gaming. As years passed, his addiction only worsened, and eventually lead to his desire to write about all things gaming from a veteran point-of-view. Hence, Fatsquatch created The Jaded Gamer in 2001, and set about leading it into permanent obscurity.
