I got the message you pointed out here. The impact of movies in the lives of the children wouldn't be comparable to the effect of gaming in their lives. You can easily get away with movie addiction after some days but gaming is endless, if you play together you'll still come over to play again, and the addition continues. 

Exactly - it's a never-ending cycle when it comes to gaming. There's always something that's there to be discovered. Movies for the most part can't sustain that kind of attention for an extended period of time like games can. I've known of people playing videogames for 72 hours straight. You won't find movie addicts who are anywhere as dedicated as that...

It's only one seasonal movie called 24 hours that got me hooked up to it very bad when it came out. I watched it for more than 72 hours without taking a break.

My mum is a home mother, she can watch movie more than 134 hours straight if their is constant electricity. That's not an excuse why the Chinese government will restrict children from gaming and leaving out movies. Their are still plenty in the country that are still movie addicts.

It's easy for governments to attack the gaming community because it's generally young adults and children. They wouldn't dare limit hours if the general population engaged in gaming. I think the motivation is to free up the satellites along with making a facial recognition database and profile of people. People get addicted to tv and just surfing the internet and their social media. With their population size, we will see what future laws they pass limiting internet usage. Right now the easy thing to do is target young people and gaming. I imagine the facial recognition will eventually be used for anyone with a computer and tv. They will keep tightening the ropes little by little as it gets more and more accepted.

Hmm, with their population seize I don't think China can come out on top on this one knowing how many hours children are burning on their various homes for video game. 

Oh trust me - the Chinese government doesn't have an issue violating human rights and will go to extremely lengths to ensure that it gets done.

No problem if that's the case with the Chinese government. I believe they are simply doing all this things protecting their own children from the dangers associated with video games addiction.

Nope - It's to further their agenda whatever it is.

The reason question is whether or this use of facial recognition won't be easily manipulated? Someone with an older friend can easily use his friends to set up a game up and running by using his face to unlock the game.
