"WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior."

I know this is old, but it's back yet again. My opinion is that if playing a video game can turn you aggressive, there's something already not right upstairs.

Games like Night Trap (which sucked, by the way) in the 80's caused a little bit of a stir, but Doom and Columbine was really the first time someone tried to tie video games to violence, before that, a discussion about violent video games was basically the same as parents saying "TV will rot your brain," and the most violent games in the 80's (as well as many featuring nudity) weren't even licensed, they were just some garbage some kid threw together on his computer. Nintendo put the early stages of anti-piracy software in place, and the unlicensed games slowly vanished from the market. Nobody took it seriously until some goth kids picked up some guns and said "this is just like Doom," forever fucking it up for the rest of us.

When Massacre is around, everything is violated... Whether it likes it or not.

Whenever I think of "human resources" Massacre immediately springs to mind.
