Nice to see a critical look at those who slam games, game violence and gamers as social cavepeople. As Gerard Jones similarly states, most politicians and researchers simply have not paid enough attention to the gamers themselves or they take what’s on screen too literally (Jones get’s into this in his recent debate with anti-game crusader Daphne White (be sure to listen to the full RealAudio broadcast)).
Also keying off of the recent QuakeCon event, CNN has an article on the shifting culture of video games. Culture and audience being what Seamus Blackley - always the provocateur - passionately tells us we should not be ignoring…
And, from the taking things too literally department, these guys have “reenacted” scenes from The Getaway in London. Cool! (Nice umbrella shotgun stand-in ;)
