Stop Beating Your Wife and Breathe: Students Develop Video Games for Social Change

Ripten: "Can a video game help cystic fibrosis patients improve their breathing technique? Will a virtual space with virtual consequences discourage violent acts against women by South African males? Well, that's exactly what a group of video game development majors at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont are hoping to find out."

The story is too old to be commented.

Actually Zahaladeen, I think the Connery quote is...

"Shumtimes, women want to be shlapped."

"I don't get it Mr. Connery."

"Oh I bet you don't Trebeck."

It's good to see videogames in the outside world portrayed in a positive way, as opposed to the irritating coverage of violent ones.
