Gamers' Voice: The Parliamentary Games Party

SPOnG: It’s a curious sight to see. British government ministers, usually seen as wooden and emotionless vessels of the political line, are laughing and appear relaxed as they build a black goo tower with a Wii Remote, explore an interactive drama on PlayStation 3 and play football on Kinect.

Many of them have barely touched a video game before. I was told that a few MPs were quite worried about going into the room as their idea of games was a very loud, abrasive, guns-blazing experience. Seeing the surprise on their faces is something you don’t expect when you cover the medium professionally, but it was very pleasant to see all the same.

The story is too old to be commented.
