With the end of ALA so close to the #libgaming chat on June 30, we had an open forum discussion. Topics covered include using Red Dead Redemption (Rockstar Games, 2010) at a library program, M-rated games in general, and game design and collections, briefly.

4:48 PM: michellv123: @GMLGeek Ahhh. We do circ M games. Not sure if our community views them as kid only. Tho u may be right abt a program being viewed as such.
4:55 PM GMLGeek: One thing I’ve learned — can’t allow patrons to bring their Xbox hard drives, mem cards & such. Unfair advantage! #libgaming
