Gaming made me fat, ignorance made you stupid

Nicholas Simonovski writes, "It’s no surprise when I say that video games are often blamed for a whole host of societal issues. A mad-man shoots up a school? Blame the latest Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto game. A driver speeds and crashes his sports car? Blame the latest Need For Speed title. It seems that there is no behavior or problem that gaming isn’t responsible for. Recently, Gerry Harvey (CEO of Harvey Norman Holds Ltd.) went on television and discussed how computers and video games were a main cause for the health crisis within Australia. In the article below, I’d like to discuss just how ridiculous this all is." (Culture)
