A spokesperson from Mothers Against Violence (MAV) recently appeared on BBC Radio for a debate about violent videogames.

As [URL=http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/buck-stops-with-parents-on-violent-games]recounted by EuroGamer[/URL], the MAV representative put the onus on parents to control what games their children are playing, saying, “I'm not directly blaming games, I'm blaming parents.” The spokesperson also suggested that parents band together and educate their peers on the issue of violence in games, stating, “It just takes one of us to spread the word, to plant the seed.”

The spokesperson then expressed “fears that violent games were ‘desensitising’ children who are ‘becoming complacent and think they're invincible.’”

Eurogamer wrote: “A broader point made was that many parents, despite age-ratings on packaging, don't pay attention to the games their children are playing, not (sic) are they aware of the negative effects they could have.”
