My personal favorite was the guy who thought that the game had to be terrible simply because it was banned. Now that's logic par excellence.
I also loved the explanation of Fallout 3 to make it sound ultra deviant. I'd love to hear a similar summary of Mario Brothers: "You suit up as a plumber who stomps on poor, defenseless turtles? And you play this game for hours? How aberrant!"
It's crazy that policy makers are this clueless when it comes to video game censorship. And it doesn't help that they try to justify their prejudicial judgments with "won't someone think of the children" rationales.
