Okay, this is a thought I just had.

While reading the Spitzer story on GP, I came across this statement from Stinking Kevin:

[QUOTE]If you are going to call Hitman and GTA “adult material,” you also need to apply that label to all the “R”-rated movies sitting the shelf at your local Blockbuster, and all the “unrated” DVDs on the shelves at Wal-Mart and Target, and all the “MA”-rated shows on cable. (Who’d've ever guessed there was so much “adult material” available, all out in the open, just waiting to corrupt our poor children with its very existence?)[/QUOTE]

The thought then accord to me. What if the reason kids love M rated games so much is because they are saturated in other adult media?

6 o'clock CST starts the majority of adult programs. My kids don't go to bed until 8. They are still young so as they grow older, they will be staying up longer. But at around 6 the shows start getting more sexual and violent. As the night goes on, it gets worse. There is very little in the way of children's programming outside of Saturday and Sunday mornings and the PBS.

Now onto movies. Taking a look at my local theatre, we have 3 movies out of 12 that are either PG or G. The rest are PG-13 or R. SO there is very little in the way of "children's" movies.

Now they are faced with video games. They are presented with a more adult oriented entertainment selection in all other medias listed, so wouldn't be assumed to be that the natural selection of a child is to select the games that best match the viewing options of other media?
