Gamers are constantly battling the notion that video games have the ability to transform us into mindless zombies incapable of separating the virtual world from the real world. And I'd agree, if, having grown up playing Pac-Man and Super Mario, I would have had an obstinate urge to devour blue flashing spirits and kick retreating turtles that have receded into their shell. But curiously, my psyche never taunted me into living out those 2-D rendered scenarios, nor do I have this desire to clock a prostitute upside her head before mowing down innocent pedestrians a la Grand Theft Auto.

Is there a question here? I agree that the media sees games merely as tools of the devil, but I've been playing games for over 10 years and I guess the first time I was shocked was in SOF 1, but then again I played that when I was 17, and I played mostly surface-violent shooters.
