Supreme Court of US rules in favour of gaming!

We’ve all heard of the long time court case going through the US where California wanted to treat violent or offensive games in the same category as pornography and require an 18+ on them, as well as various other restrictions.

Well this morning the Supreme Court handed down it’s verdict. We won. Video Games are officially protected under the first amendment of the Constitution of the United States, protecting free speech. This is a huge victory for all gamers, even those not in the US like myself, because a case like this could have effected gaming on the whole in a huge way.
