A simple pieceĀ about violence in video games. At their core, games are pure and innocent, so I made this one as offensive as possible. That’s why I included the anti-authority theme. Gory games like Grand Theft Auto and Mortal Kombat always drew more media outcry than ones their more wholesome counterparts. If I’d made my opener to “Friendly Competition” pure and innocent it wouldn’t draw as much attention, so I didn’t.
