With a week until the presidential election, I thought it was about time to get to my second part of this piece I call; “The Presidential Candidates and their View on Video games.” In the first part of this piece, (See HERE) I covered the views of Presidential hopeful Barack Obama. Now in part two, I will cover John McCain. Before I go on just wanted to remind you that I gave both campaigns plenty of time and opportunity to state for themselves what their stands on video games. I have brought it on myself to find as much quotes and info so I can properly get an idea of their views.
