REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Industry Execs Discuss Video Game Violence With Vice President Biden [Update: Video Inside]

Posted on Tuesday, January 15 @ 07:17:07 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


[Update]: Video footage from the meeting above.

Yesterday, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden met with game industry executives from Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Epic Games, Take-Two Interactive, and ZeniMax Media. Researchers from Texas A&M and the University of Wisconsin were in attendance as well.

Following their discussion, the Wall Street Journal spoke with researcher Christopher Ferguson who said that he “felt Biden had done his best to avoid turning the meetings with game industry leaders into ‘a witch hunt’.”

Ferguson went on to add, “I couldn’t say that the vice president had his arms around the industry and was saying how wonderful it was on the one hand. But on the other hand, I didn’t detect that instantaneous rush to judgment and say the most negative thing either. I think he’s in a sort of neutral or agnostic position, which is probably quite reasonable with where they’re at right now.”

Biden reportedly said that he believes “that there is no silver bullet” to ridding America of violence, going on to add, “I come to this meeting with no judgment. You all know the judgment other people have made.”

Be sure to stay tuned for GameRevolution in the coming weeks for more on this matter as it develops. In the meantime, sound off with your thoughts on the situation in the comments below. Is violent media to blame for today's violence? Are parents at fault? Are both to blame?
