MINNEAPOLIS — Thirteen-year-old Jack Yongquist says he has no desire to play ultraviolent video games like "Grand Theft Auto." But the Roseville, Minn., teenager says he's glad that a federal appeals court ruled Monday that Minnesota can't enforce a law that prohibits the sale or rental of such games to minors.
"I think they should be able to — if their parents say it's OK. It's their choice," Jack said while shopping after school at Game Crazy on Snelling Avenue.
Jack initially said he'd never played any such games, but he had to backpedal when a store clerk mentioned that "Halo" is "technically rated mature."
"It's not that bad because it's not with humans," Jack said.
