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 29 2012: Terrible suggestion. Should we do the same to other forms of art? Film? Paintings? Sculpture? Literature? Music? Theatre?

    You figure it out.
    • Sep 30 2012: As I see, they are quite different.And it may be wrong to do this in other areas doesn't mean it won't be right to do the same in online games.If we looking into history,actually we did something about games.There are some rules about games.We can't rule every single step of people's actions,but we should do something at basic level.I know someone living on cheating and stealing money from other players in the online games.They are having a great time because there's no rules and even no evidence in the online games.
      • Oct 5 2012: There are multiple rules and lots of evidence in the online games. Enough complaints are made and guess what, the employees of the company that act as the "game masters" end up checking it out because it's all just code. If you know how to read the code, you know what to look for.
        • Oct 9 2012: As far as the "game masters" can do,they just give you a copy of your equipments,not give them back.They can't give back your money ingame.And the theft just need to creat a new account and do it all over again.All these things we are talking about is just "1" and "0".But when it is connected with real dollars in the offical market.Everything is different.
