Is the Bible More Violent Than Games?
“â€œ…old media have vastly more shocking content than video gamesâ€¦ a prime example of a book that children are encouraged to read is the Bible. […] The King James version has ‘harlot’ in it 48 times, ‘sodomite’ 5 times, ‘fornicator’ 5 times, ‘smite’ 133 times, ‘kill’ 208 times and ‘maim’ 7 times.â€”:http://gamepolitics.com/2008/02/11/game-industry-vet-bible-has-more-adult-content-than-video-games/ Well, just this morning I gunned down “a couple hundred zombies”:http://www.kongregate.com/games/SeanCooper/boxhead-the-zombie-wars in a mere six or seven minutes. Games are all about repetition â€“ turning some violent games into a hypnotizing killing drill. Which is what frightens some observers. Sure, it’s a fun argument, but the Bible really doesn’t compare.
