Pushing the wrong buttons
News that Microsoft’s new Xbox 360 includes a parental control function which will allow parents to stop their children playing violent games has failed to impress “Massah” John Beyer.
To have mum and dad pressing buttons here and there just isn’t the way that most families deal with these things. I think it is unrealistic of the games people to expect parents to have total control.
One suspects if Mediawatch-UK and its supporters could only master the concept of “pressing buttons here and there” all their problems would be solved. Unfortunately, even the buttons on their remote controls seem to be beyond them.
If only the state would take control of the media, making it decent and Christian, then all this confusing button-pressing would no longer be necessary.
