Oasis’ Noel Gallagher: Video Games Did So Cause The London Riot!

At the height of last week’s horrific British riots, we insisted that no, seriously, the London riots weren’t caused by video games. How wrong we were! We now realize that before making such a definitive statement, we should have consulted noted expert in civil unrest and urban violence, former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher.

The songwriter behind “Wonderwall” and “Supersonic”, clearly having devoted his life since the 2009 breakup of Oasis to the study of poverty and political science, weighed in on the British unrest over the weekend. Says Noel:

I don’t care what other people say: Brutal TV and brutal video games are a reason for this pointless violence as well. The people are immune to violence, they are used to it.

Duly noted, guy who used to be famous for ripping off The Beatles. We at GameFront want to apologize for our error, and assure you all that next time there’s a terrifying event of international importance, we will reach out first to Professor Gallagher before commenting.

I think the riots were caused by watching Oasis brawl with eachother during their shows.
