The "Question Of The Week" feature, a specific industry-related question to be answered by professional game developers and Gamasutra readers, discusses the ESRB rating system and retail restrictions to mature-rated titles, following the continuing controversy over Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
and its game modifications.
The new question, which can be answered at the official Question Of The Week page
until July 20th, is: "Do you think that the ESRB and retailers do a good job of rating and controlling access to video games in North America, and is government legislation to control game rating and distribution a good idea?"
As with the previous questions, the best responses will be compiled into an article to be published on the site, and users can either respond publically, with their name and company specifically cited, or anonymize their answers if they wish.
