ELSPA responds to Johnson

DG defends educational values.

ELSPA director general Paul Jackson has called on Boris Johnson to take a closer look at videogames following the Tory MP's outspoken criticism of the medium.

In a statement issued to GamesIndustry.biz, Jackson said he respects Johnson's opinions but warned that the MP for Henley may be "painting his picture with too broad a brush".

"The games industry is often a scapegoat for many problems society encounters with youths. But instead of placing blame where it should not lie, we need to educate parents and carers of the 21st Century child," he continued.
