Video game law

California has a law banning sales of extremely offensive and violent video games to minors, but the federal court has ruled that the law violates free speech rights. Meanwhile, there is a federal law against anyone with a depiction of an animal being harmed or killed, and it has so far resisted court challenge.

So if you are making a video game involving shooting, be sure it shows killing people and not animals. That is the way free speech works in the USA.
