Video game bans are once again a topic of discussion after the Stoneman Douglas school shooting in Florida. President Trump and other politicians have been calling for more regulations on video game violence. The belief that violent video games make killers is silly to me and a quick look a history will show that violence in media has little impact on violence in society. So today, we’re going to talk about Moral Panic and Media Censorship in the last century. Topics will include censorship of film, movie review boards, pinball machines being banned, the Comics Code Authority censoring comic book, the PMRC giving parental advisory warnings for music with explicit lyrics, the Satanic Panic from the 80s & 90s, and finally video game censorship. Gameplay will be from Doom, Mortal Kombat, Call of Duty, Bully, Manhunt, Fortnite, and PUBG.
