Asalamualaikum Wa RahmahtuAllah
Could someone explain, or give reference to, perhaps a fatwa clarifying the ruling on playing modern day video games (Playstation, Nintendo etc). Maybe someone has heard a specific ruling on this issue, and if possible, InshaAllaah, can post it here. JazakAllaahu Khair.

Wa 'alaykum as salaam warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh,

Here is a fatwa by Sheikh Abdullah Al Aqeel hafidhahullah from the blog of Br. Mustafa George hafidhahullah

Q - What is the ruling on electronic video games?

Answer: What are they?

Questioner: They are games played on a screen.  They possess pictures, sounds, etc.

Sheikh: Pictures (of living things) are totally forbidden. The Messenger - salallahu alayhi wa salem- said: "May the curse of Allah be upon the pictures makers/takers". They are not permissible.
