How Family Friendly was GEEK this year?

Did the Thanet based games expo just get caught breaking the law?

Eagle-eyed readers of my technology and geeky stuff blog have pointed out that there are pictures of GEEK letting under 18s play mature content games.

Game Expo East Kent GEEK, was on at the Winter gardens this weekend. By all reports they did somethings well but disappointed in many areas (not least of which was the huge rise in ticket prices).

There is a review of the event on Indi Retro News and this is where a whole other side to GEEK was first noticed. That side being a rather fast and loose interpretation of "family friendly".

Over to you - was this a mistake by GEEK or were they right to let kids play graphically violent games?
