Kansas Attorney General Teams Up with ESRB on Ratings Awareness

Steve Six (D), the Attorney General of Kansas, has become the latest high-level state official to sign on in support of the video game industry’s ESRB rating system.

A press release posted last week on Six’s website includes the A.G.’s reminder to parents to make use of ESRB ratings:

With school out for the summer, kids may spend more time playing video games.  Parents must be vigilant about the media they allow into their homes. There’s simply no substitute for parental involvement and responsibility, and it’s important that parents play an active role in choosing games for their children. 


ESRB ratings are an effective and informative resource that allows parents to decide if the video game their child wants is appropriate, and rating summaries provide even more insight into exactly what a parent would want to know about in a game.  I’m proud to be educating parents in our state about the tools at their disposal.

Six will deliver the ESRB message on public service announcement on radio and T.V. in Kansas. The televised version PSA can be viewed on the ESRB website (scroll down to "Statewide TV").

    Jack Thompson saying the Attorney General and the whole state of Kansas is part of the conspiracy and saying the ESRB is bribing the whole state with money and violent "Vidya" games in 3…2…1

    I’m glad to see Kansas is joining the bandwagon.  It’s about time for people to realize that games are not behind the mass violence.

    This makes how politicians in the past few weeks to announce their ‘teaming up’ with the ESRB. Is this a new push from the ESRB, or are the politicians finally realizing that education, not legislation, is the key.

    That needs to be on a banner or something that we can wave anytime some crackpot lawyer/politics/newsite goes on about game content and kids.

    Kudos to the AG?, I guess its about time to educate awareness of video game content instead of trying to control it (or ban,retrict,etc), And its time parents need to learn about what kind of things kids get introduced into time again.


    Cue JT saying the Kansas AG is part of the conspiracy.
