David Chandler joins the discussion about digital violence and the claims made by the media regarding its "realism" its relationship with real-world violence. "The truth is," he writes, "I’ve never played a game that offered any sense of realistic violence, and I posit further that gamers really don’t want realism in our violent video games at all–the results would be far too disturbing."
