Among the games removed were Time Crisis and Beach Head 2000. Galaga, Ms. Pac-Man, and Cruis'n Exotica remained at the rest stop in Natick.

Are you kidding? Do you know how many lives it took me to beat the final boss on Ms. Pacman?

"The reaction against violent videogames has been severe. "

I'd be more worried about trash articles inciting the Cro-Magnons of society into advocating the removal of liberty and freedom, resulting in a violent revolution to counter this.

Ms Pac-Man, Cruisin Exotica, and Galaga REMAINED at the rest stop! IMHO, because this is a highway rest stop, the ONLY game that should have been removed was Cruisin Exotica!!! How many highway accidents could be prevented?! /sarcasm The more important question is.. How many 13 year olds are driving through a Natick rest stop to play a violent video game their parents won't let them play at home??!!

I'd frankly be a bit worried if I heard the words "violent revolution".

LOL J/K, I'M A BOLSHEVIK! LONG LIVE COMRADE LENIN!

(But seriously. Violence is bad.)

Funny how people managed to kill each other during Roman wars or religious wars, when there were no video games during those times. Yet still, religion exists, and there are still wars going on. And somehow video games are responsible for killings? Total BS.

Um they're at a rest stop.. How long can they play the video games without a parent or somebody else to look over them. I don't know about you, sure I may take a piss or what not, but my child would not be running around a rest area unsupervised.

Again when a government should just tell parents to suck it up and do their damn jobs and be a parent.
