North Carolina Cleanin’ Up The Streets

Video Game Law Blog

April 25, 2005

North Carolina's Senate Bill 2 has obtained state senate approval; if it is also passed by the state house and the governor, it could be North Carolina law as early as December, 2005. Bill 2 governs the sale and rental of video games, and prohibits stores from selling or renting violent or sexually explicit games to minors.  The bill also seeks to force stores to keep such games out of the reach and view of minors, and to post information on the ESRB ratings system.  Games likely affected include Grand Theft Auto, Leisure Suit Larry, and the Guy Game.
