The phone will ring again
I'll take her back again.... *cough* Excuse me, got caught up in a lyric. It happens,
CBS has been doing a series of online interviews regarding violence in videogames.
Here's my take on this. Japan is where its at games-wise. Teenagers there play by far more games than those here. And yet (when population-adjusted) violence amongst teens is signifigantly lower.
It's all about the fourth wall. The separation between fantasy and reality. If you can't make the distinction, then there's something seriously wrong with you, and I'm not going to suffer censorship on your behalf when you shouldn't be playing the games in the first place.
There's allways going to be entertainment that depicts actions that we don't want kids emulating. Its a simple matter of supervision. Parent's groups mostly seem to gather in order to pass the buck in this case.
In other news, I've figured out how to do all of the preaching bits as this character (see below) I just need to take the preaching voice and mold it into one that the preacher would use to solicit sex from a starving single mother of five. That's the hard part.
