ELSPA will hold a forum addressing the hostile media reaction to violent games at this year's London Games Festival.

The panel discussion, titled "Ban These Evil Games", will take place on October 22 at the Royal Society of Medicine. It will examine the reasons why the games industry comes under so much pressure from the media for adult content.

Through contributions from experts and the audience, the free event aims to establish whether the games industry gets a raw deal - and identify solutions to its troubled relationship with the media.

The discussion follows Prime Minister Gordon Brown's call this week for a public review of violent and sexual imagery in games.

The London Games Festival takes place from October 22-26 in various locations around the capital.
