In an interview, Twist stated, “There is no proven scientific link between playing games and violence, or that playing games de-sensitises people to violence. In fact, research has shown that children can very clearly distinguish the difference between violence in games and the types of violence they hear about on the news."
“Games are enjoyed responsibly by millions of people and our survey shows that 92% of parents recognise the positive impact of games," she added.
Twist went on to say parents should be more involved with their kids' gaming habits.
“Some games deal with adult themes in the same way that films, TV programmes and books do,” Twist explained, "To make sure that games intended for adults are only played by adults, the PEGI age rating system, which has just become the single legally enforceable age ratings system in the UK and Europe, gives the guidance to retailers and to buyers about which games are appropriate for which audiences. We have also launched askaboutgames.com to give parents and carers all the tips and info they need to help them and their families get the most out of games.”
