I Feel Bad About Shooting You

Developing a conscience through the playing of a first person shooting game? This is yet another example of people wanting to be labeled as good just because they are doing something that is not the worst. Does making a shooting game more realistic (ie, people cry when an innocent bystander gets shot) really help?

In some ways I think the more cartoonish violence is less harmful. Kids know it’s just nonsense.

Concentration is important!
