Insomniac boss Ted Price has come out and said that censoring games in the US is a bad thing. He probably has a point.

“I think video game legislation has no place in America,” he told Shacknews.

“It saddens me to see legislators stomping all over our First Amendment rights for their own specific interests.”

The exec added that other media industries have been through this “media nasty” period, as if it’s par for the course.

“We’re going through what every other entertainment industry has gone through, and that’s being the temporary scapegoat for society’s ills,” he said.

“I think that we as an industry do a fantastic job of policing ourselves, we have one of the most effective, if not the most effective rating system in any entertainment industry right now.”
