China's Green Online Games Base

According to China CSR, a green online games development base has been opened at the Shijingshan Science Park.

It does seem, though, that this is a somewhat different use of 'green' than we are used to. The aim of the initiative is in 'spreading green online game culture, a spirit of self-discipline and cracking down on unhealthy online behaviour'.

The vice president of Capital Normal University is quoted as saying that whilst online games have become an important part of people's lives they also have some unhealthy content such as violence, gambling, and superstition. The green online game base will help develop a national games industry, protect children's health and ensure the purity of the online game environment.

Not 'green' as we know it, but commendable none-the-less.
