'South Park' 'Minecraft' episode turns the tables on video game violence debate

XMNR: Violent video games are reflexively blamed by news media and politicians seemingly every time a mass shooting incident occurs. The creators behind South Park managed to brilliantly turn the tables to show the absurdity behind the argument in a single 22 minute episode Wednesday night titled, "Informative Murder Porn." (Culture, Minecraft, PC, Xbox 360)

I've been a big advocate for social acceptance of gaming. This episode did it right. It brings up all the important factors in this debate. Many parents simply don't understand video games, so it's scary to them. They're just trying to be good parents. And kids need to help their parents understand the industry. It is no more dangerous than television.
