What a horrible world when parents have to actually, well, parent

From a "Focus on the Family" press release
In 'Point.Click.Kill.: A Father's Confession,' [former associate editor of Focus' Citizen magazine Jeff] Hooten details the contents of many of today's most popular games, offering parents an insider's perspective of a realm that most adults know only through the eyes and ears of their children.

'Sure, they're only games; exercises in digitized violence and virtual disfigurement. But we're not talking about Super Mario anymore,' Hooten writes. 'Nowadays the other characters talk to you, curse at you and, of course, often try to eliminate you. You can hear the sound of your own footsteps, or, worse yet, your enemies breathing.

'It won't be long before . . . I'll have to decide which games [my boys] can play, and how often.'

And who's deciding that now, Jeff? The evil corporations are beaming the games directly into your boys' heads without your say-so?

    Apparently you're a complete idiot. The author above was merely stating that someday his young boys will be old to start inquiring about violent video games. The author played the games for himself to give the article credibility -- not that it does much good when critics don't take the time to actually read for themselves.
