Speaking as one of those people in their 40s, I found the line extremely jarring (especially going unchallenged as it apparently does). I don't want the government to tech morality to me or my family...and I play a LOT of video games. I let my children see and play games at different age levels depending on the content. Certain scenes in Red Dead Revolution? Strictly Verboten. Playing Halo: Reach? Not a problem. Playing Modern Warfare 2? Not happening for a few years. Playing Minecraft: all the time. :)
It's not so much that I don't believe that people out there hold that idea, even younger people: it's that it sounds so tone wrong for THESE people. A high-tech hacker-type and her VP Steve Jobs-ian boss both agreeing that video games lead to violence? It rings false.
