Tonight, Snoozenight.com hands over to Nathan Smith, friend of the site, Big Boss of lolocaust.co.uk and co-host of The Mature Gamer Podcast.
The first in a series, he explores the “Dirty Dozen” of provocative, misinterpreted, misguided or controversial video-games, starting with Nathan losing his patience with the “Grand-Daddy of all controversial video games”.
He’s normally quite a witty chap but just gets a bit angry in this article. I guess he didn’t like the cornbread.
You don’t have to go far to find a news story that declares that video games are responsible for a range of criminal activities, breakdowns in society or failed marriages. You’ll also then find reactive reports from gamers who declare all of these reports as little more than lazy journalism, but sometimes I think we all need to accept the fact that not all video games are innocent of all accusation. Some ‘games’ are little more than a nasty concept dressed up as a game and over the next few weeks I will be looking at twelve examples of indefensible, controversial or just plain wrong, making up my ‘Dirty Dozen’. Not all will be abhorrent some will simply be highly questionable, and I will attempt to approach each one with an open mind and would love discussion from readers in the comments field.
