Gaming on the BEEB.
« on: September 02, 2004, 02:38:54 PM »
Some comments on the future of gaming on the BBC news site..
Intresting reading.

"The problem is that many games are addictive and for their players can blur the boundaries of fantasy and reality. Add to this many of them are based on violence and killing - and you have a very disturbing situation. How many murders have been attributed to them?

" Video gaming is a fashion like any other and very soon will come the inevitable backlash. By 2006 kids will be enjoying marbles and conkers, and adults will be playing whist, cribbage and shove ha'penny. By 2008 hopscotch will have replaced the games console. By 2010 computers will seem like a silly and embarrassing fad, a bit like rubiks cubes or space hoppers. It's an historical certainty.

loads of comments - basicly same gist:

Gaming does not = murder & violence in real life.

Gaming is becomming socially acceptable & is growing in popularity.

You still get the odd smacktard who thinks gaming is the equilivent hanging about on street corners & beating up old ladies
