The Political Game: When it came to games, 2007 was politician heaven

It may be Game Over for 2007, but the political ripples of the past twelve months will be felt long into the New Year. And while Jack Thompson made a lot of noise – as usual – the culture war over video games extended far beyond the city limits of Miami.

Even Pope Benedict XVI took time to criticize video game violence.

The story is too old to be commented.
