FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Nancy Pelosi Defends Video Games

Posted on Monday, February 11 @ 14:12:15 Eastern by Alex_Osborn



United States House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has made it clear that she is not in support of blaming the video game industry for the violence we see in America.

In an interview on Fox News, the host Chris Wallace questioned Pelosi, saying, "We know these video games where people have their heads splattered, these movies, these TV shows... Why don't you go to your friends in Hollywood and challenge them, shame them and say, 'Knock it off.'" 

Here is her response:

I understand what you’re saying. I’m a mother. I’m a grandmother. But the evidence says that in Japan, for example, they have the most violent games [compared to] the rest and the lowest mortality from guns. I don’t know what the explanation is for that except they might have good gun laws.

I think we have to do it all, and that's why we included in there that we have to take a look at what these games are. I don't think we should do anything anecdotally. We have a saying here, 'the plural of anecdote is not data.' So we want to know what is the evidence, what will really make a difference here? And I think it has to be comprehensive.

Do you agree with Pelosi's reply? At the very least, it's great to hear from someone who isn't eager to throw video games under the bus.
