In a highly irresponsible move, a Texas Hold 'Em game was released for Game Boy Advance. Game Boy is primarily targeted at young kids and this is just another example of how addictive behaviour is not only encouraged but even promoted by marketers intent on cashing in on the poker craze, regardless of the negative impact they have on kids lives.

Naysayers may say "It's just a game" but according to a recent study most teens have engaged in real online gambling and many are becoming addicted and getting themselves into serious financial trouble. Stats for Texas Hold 'Em For Game Boy Advance Trending: Older & Mild
