I love shooting Nazi’s in the face, don’t you?
I remember storming castle Wolfenstein with all manner of boom sticks – blasting my way through every single one of those mass-murdering bastards in an avalanche of hot lead and death. The outcry over FPS’s began around the time Doom and Mortal Kombat were hitting the scene. Members of the previous generations flinched as they watched us annihilate enemies via decapitation or splattering rocket fire. As a kid, I felt their chorus of disapproval was ridiculous. I knew full well it was just a video game and the only thing I was actually killing was time. The only things being harmed were clusters of pixels. Almost every gamer I know feels the same way about war games and FPS’s. We would roll our eyes when we heard about some lame ass parent coming on television and attacking the violence in video games.
