Press Pause to Reflect: Violence Is Not the Problem

In Quotes on 2010-05-24 by Kyle Maxwell Tagged: ,

When the media turns its gaze to the violence in video games, it is usually the acts themselves which are labeled as disturbing, gratuitous, and unfit for public consumption. What is most disturbing and potentially harmful, however, is the way that violence is treated by the individual characters in the games. Mostly it is not seriously considered by the characters at all. Enemies are merely there to be killed, and their deaths mean nothing.
