IGN: The Year In Video Game Violence

In video games the subject of violence is often treated as monolithic, something which must lead us to moral truth. In reality, no such simplicity is possible. Just as the violence of an older sibling delivering a charlie horse is different from the violence of an armed robbery, violent video games must be taken each in their own context. (Halo 4, Hotline Miami, Industry, PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Wii U, Xbox 360, ZombiU)

Hyperreality and Object fetishism you say? More of that please!

In fact, more intelligence in video games and video games journalism please!
