Later today I will spend about 45 minutes killing people. I'll probably kill a hundred or so. I'll enjoy all the kills. I'll take particular satisfaction from executing the really good ones; sneaking up behind some fellow and blowing his fucking head off, before he knows I'm even there.
Does this make me a bad person?
According to some commentators, it does. I am immoral because I play games. It just happens that I really like shooting games, but it's not especially relevant here because, according to these critics, all video games are immoral. The activity of playing games is wrong."
