Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio A new report is out rating this year's video games and how violent they are. The report from The National Institute on Media and the Family lists 10 games in particular that are especially gory.

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar says there are some obvious ways for parents to make sure their kids aren't playing inappropriate games.

"A title like ‘Grand Theft Auto' should be a strong hint that the game contains behavior that the parents maybe shouldn't want to be enforcing at home," Klobuchar said.

The report showed more than half the time kids were able to buy games meant for those over age 17. These include "Manhunt 2," "Total Darkness" and "Assassin's Creed."
