At least, this is what claims a so-called leading US organization titled [url="http://www.mediafamily.org"]The National Institute on Media and the Family[/url] that introduce itself as "the nationâ€™s leading resource on the effects of video games on children" and whose mission is to "examine the impact of electronic media on families".
They have release yesterday their "Ninth Annual MediaWise Video Game Report Card". I won't go into its inner details as - to my opnion - those people always say the same ####, yet it has to be mentionned that DOOM 3 is in the lead of their list of games that should be avoided by children and teens.
