Fears that parents and grandparents may unwittingly buy violent or sexually explicit computer games for youths this Christmas have prompted a coalition of US pressure groups to compile a warning list of the world's most violent games.
Groups led by the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility have today warned parents and grandparents to be careful when purchasing what it deems to be the 10 most violent video games.
These include Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Halo 2, which the group considers "inappropriate as holiday season gifts for young children".
The campaign, which includes the World Council of Churches and the National Committee on Women's Organisations, has issued a joint statement calling on retailers to "stop selling the most violent games to youths" and urging video game makers to "offer more than just blood-soaked, anti-social content".
