Mississippi Attorney General Urges Parents to Check ESRB Ratings

Unlike some of his colleagues around the United States, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood (D) hasn’t opted for the Full Monty ESRB partnership (which includes a televised public service announcement).

However Hood has officially urged parents in the Magnolia State to pay attention to video game ratings. As reported by the Hattiesburg American, the A.G. said:

As a parent, I appreciate that caregivers want to purchase their children these exciting games. I understand that it’s easy just to grab whatever’s on the shelf, but I encourage all parents to check a game’s rating to make sure that what they’re giving as a gift is okay to play.
