Mainstream Media Still Doesn't Understand Video Games (Surprise, Surprise)

"There has been quite a bit of flak going around from the main stream media about video games the past few weeks. I didn't really want to give each one of them another soap box, but I suppose I'll summarize all their ignorance right here: Mass Effect is interactive porn, video games are like crack for kids, and Bully just won't stop destroying our children."

Excellent article. So the media is pointing fingers at the kids at home who plays video games, but grow up, go to college, and have high paying jobs who can afford a PS3, 360, HDTV. But totally disregards the unfortunate "bad seeds of society" who grew up with no video games, no love, no family, who in a desperate situation go out and robb people and steal cars.

Yeah media. You guys are ignorant.

Films were criticized when they first came out.
So was television.
So was rock and roll. (For god's sake, don't film below Elvis' waist!)
It's just video gaming's turn, eventually this will all be forgotten.
