Should We bring laws to protect morality in online games.Because I think the online games are spreading negative emotions and even crime.

Without laws,there'll be no restrict.There are lots of bad things in online games,I'll take one little thing for example.I've seen so many high level players kill low level players.It's just like an adult kicking pupils.In real life,this tough guy will be put into jail.But in games,what he did is permitted.So as many other bad things,like cheating.Games are more and more like real life.The difference is there's laws in real life.If there's no restrict in online games,those bad behavior will be indulged.And I believe that will cause problems not only in games but also in real life,because games do affect our life.More and more people spend more time in online games.It's just like their second life.And living a second life with no restrict every day.I do believe there's something will go wrong sometime.

    • Sep 25 2012: Yes,I agree with you that morality should not be legislated in a civilized country.I don't take online games just as games,it's like a small society.This is the place with no rules and it should be civilized to narrow the gap between the games and the civilized real life.We don't take it s serious because we thought it's just a game.But I know that many people play more than 5 hours everyday,some even more than their working time.Games do affect their life.We can't force them not to play,but we can built a better environment at least.Maybe laws is not the proper word.I guess game rules sounds better.
