Almost solely because he doesn't talk about them, Barack Obama was rated the most gaming friendly Democrat candidate for president by Yahoo recently, so we were interested to read that he had dipped his toes into the hot coffee (as it were) and brought up the complicated topic of Grand Theft Auto IV at a campaign stop. You can watch the video above to see how he fared.

In our opinion, it went pretty well. He put the onus on parents to monitor that sort of thing, didn't complain about violence and didn't try to sound hip by pretending he knew more about it than he did. In fact, he said the word "goo gobs" out loud, which is like, the complete opposite of trying to sound cool.
