Another Video Games are Corrupting Our Children List? It Must be Wednesday

Posted by | December 17, 2008

Yet again, those grand crusaders against all things they don’t personally like have focused their red and disapproving eye upon video games. Today, the grayface in public is one Kym Worthy, the Wayne County prosecutor. From her Detroit office, she lashed out at video games, claiming that violent games are responsible not just for a host of random societal ills, but also the murder of Daniel Sorensen. Sorensen was stabbed, decapitated, and set on fire. Tragic enough on its own, but the killers adopted a “video games made me do it” defense, presumably because there are precious few sane excuses for random firey decapitations.

Kym Worthy also linked the killers to violent video games, as if certain games had really and truly influenced them in some magical way that doesn’t apply to the hundreds of millions of folks who also play video games every day without going all stabby.

Worthy also unfurled a grand scroll listing the most violent video games on the market right now, which is about as close to a list of Christmas gift suggestions as you’ll see from a Detroit prosecutor’s office. In no particular order, the games you’ll want to pick up are; Blitz: The League II, Gears of War 2, Saints Row 2, Dead Space, Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, Legendary, Left 4 Dead, Resistance 2, and Silent Hill: Homecoming.
