During last night's presidential debate, Barack Obama once again mentioned video games, and it wasn't to tell us how much he enjoys playing Battle Toads in his campaign bus. That One said:
"There's one last ingredient that I just want to mention, and that's parents. We can't do it just in the schools. Parents are going to have to show more responsibility. They've got to turn off the TV set, put away the video games, and, finally, start instilling that thirst for knowledge that our students need."
Surprisingly, John McCain did not answer this point with, "Oh yeah? Well if video games are so bad, why do you advertise in Burnout Paradise?!? Zing!"
If McCain had responded like that, the balance of the election would have turned, and McCain would win the presidency and we'd all have pie.
