Fox News Suggests Bulletstorm Is "Worst Video Game In The World"

The ever-incisive Fox News has decided today to try to squeeze a little more blood from the “violence in games” stone. The issue is, predictably, the horrifically violent M-rated Bulletstorm and its sexually suggestive achievements (“topless” for cutting a dude in half, for instance). Deftly bypassing the fact that this game was made for adults and is illegal to sell to minors, the article bemoans the dangers of children playing these games and quotes a quack psychologist as saying “the increase in rapes can be attributed in large part to the playing out of [sexual] scenes in video games.” Really.

This article (like most on the topic) isn’t worth comment, but I thought I’d point it out to our readers in case they need that occasional reminder that mainstream media is still pushing this nonsense.
