All video games cause aggressive behaviour say two US Congressmen

Fluffeh writes "US Congressmen Baca and Wolf once again proposed a bill that would require the vast majority of video games to bear a warning label about content they consider "potentially damaging." The proposed label would be required even if the video game in question is not violent. Under the one-page Violence in Video Games Labeling Act, packaging for all video games except those rated "EC" for Early Childhood would be required to prominently display a message reading "WARNING: Exposure to violent video games has been linked to aggressive behavior.""
