What the mainstream press won’t report: Gamers are everywhere, and we’re doing fine

PA writes: “There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and sows violence against its own people,” NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre stated during a press conference. “Through vicious violent video games, with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse.” In his world video games were the problem, and more guns were the solution.

These conversations have a nasty sense of paternalism to them. They want the kids to leave the room while the adults figure out what to do with these terrible games we’re all playing. The problem is that the dialog, at least so far, ignores the most important people in the equation: Those who actually sit down and play the games. (Culture)
