China Puts Restrictions On Gaming For Kids

Children in China will soon have to trade in their gaming consoles for legos and coloring books when the Chinese government enforces their new gaming restriction system. According to ars technica the government has instructed "all online gaming operators to monitor the amount of time that minors play their games each day." Kids who exceed the maximum three hours a day are supposed to have half of their earned credits and points from a game taken away, while those who play more than five hours a day will lose all their points. The new system is intended to cut down on gaming addiction in Chinese youth which seems to be a real problem. And I thought punishment would be in the form of a time out or having their milk and cookies taken away. Then again, maybe I just lack a greater appreciation of the point system. Any thoughts on this new system? Leave your comments below!

And that's why I'm glad I don't live in China.

You'd be surprised at how conservative Asian countries are, really. And gaming is part of Western culture - we're all nearly forgetting our own culture, so the governments want to help. This is one way.
