Violent video games wins! The long running Brown vs. EMA case, formerly known as Schwarzenegger vs. Entertainment Merchants Association, is finally over and as you might have guessed, the law got struck down by a mighty hammer.

The bill attempts to govern the sale of games to minors by law, and has been argued by many as an attempt single out videogames.
