The Year in Violence: 2008

some of you may have strong feelings about violence in any form. for some reason, violence in ‘games’, has been a real lighting rod for a lot of parents.

i know that it is a daunting dilemma for some of you that want to get a gaming system for the family but may be unsure as to which system or even may be unaware of the content of some games. even ones which appear on the surface to be cute, innocent and safe for most or all family members.

i wanted to pass this along as information and to give you something to think about if you need a hand in deciding on which/what/how/why video gaming is a real daunting endeavor for parents who care.


this is no means my opinion. i agree with some and not with other aspects of this article by Michael Thomsen. i do find it very thoughtful and balanced to the subject at hand.  i leave it to you to decide what is best for your household gaming requirements. i have several of the games mentioned and as an ‘empty nested’ adult i have no issue with the games in my possession. you may…so buyer (or parent of a player beware).

See why 2008 was one of the most impressively violent years in the history of gaming.
