That's the way I've seen it; PS2/XBox are the new babysitters. A lot of parents are probably expecting the games to be of the same vein as Mario Bros or Sonic, the games they, their younger siblings, or their older children grew up with. They don't seem to realize that these games are marketed at adults and not at children.

Of course, one way or the other, IMO there isn't much to be said anyways about someone who'd sooner leave their kid sitting in front of a television playing games--regardless of the content--than spend time with the kid as a parent should, throwing a ball around, talking about what's going on in their life, whatever.

With the video game rating system in place there should be no problem.

Adult games should be only purchased by adults just like movies that have sex in them.
Personally I think that violence in video games should be getting more attention than sex. But like I said, adult games for adults, not kids.

Odd that I find it infinitely more disturbing that we see such images of violence and aggression on TV than video games. Most of us save for those with various mental problems or just the generally stupid can discern the real world from the fiction of games, but the images on the news are hardly fiction, they show us exactly the kind of grusome and brutal world we live in.

The way I see it games reflect society in some respects, so the violence and sex in games is just a carry over from our real world. Which is more distubring, that we have sex and wanton violence in games, or that its mirroring what we live every day?
