I am proud to report that I did indeed survive the week. I hope you weren’t too bored by
my fellow cohorts being derelict in their posting duties the lack of updates. Hopefully that won’t happen again. That said, onto business.
Though it was a good while ago (well, everything in the past few weeks seems so far ago given my schedule), a discussion unexpectedly broke out regarding the subject of the supposed link between video games and violence. For those of you who haven’t been watching the evening news with your parents, it’s definitely a hot topic in the US these days (can’t honestly say about Europe or elsewhere). I was given a polite request to voice out my thoughts on the issue, to transform that discussion into a full-fledged blog posting. Now I’ll be completely honest with you all before I begin: I am definitely not the biggest expert on this kind of stuff, and this topic has likely been beaten to death on other websites ad nauseum. However, considering the importance of the issue, who am I to deny the pleas of my readers? Thus, it begins.
