Director of CMCH, Dr. Michael Rich
, attended the National Video Game Summit in Minnesota on October 20-21st. Participants of the summit included researchers and
representatives of the video game industry, who disagreed about whether the video game ratings system protects children from violent and sexually explicit content.
Many researchers object to ratings being assigned by the makers of video games, while the video game industry says their system is used by parents and none of them are complaining about it.
The key to solving the problem, says Dr. Rich, is “to reframe this as a health issue, not as a moral issue.”
