Sessler's Soapbox: Videogame Violence


Posted December 24, 2008 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

Ah yes, the tried and true topic of video game violence! An oldie but a goodie.

This week on the Soapbox, Adam discusses a moment at work where someone brought up that they were offended by X-Play showing some footage of the upcoming Mature Wii game, Madworld. Now, obviously we're all very excited about this game, but the issue got Adam thinking; does interactive violence in video games desensitize us more than actual, real world violence? What does more damage to the human psyche, Manhunt 2 or the Iraq war? Madworld or U.S. sanctioned torture? Give us your opinion on the topic at hand in the comments section, but please keep it civil. We don't want to encourage any internet violence.
