Gun violence in video games has been floating around the news lately, and it’s about time someone took a good strong stance on the issue. Adam Sessler (G4 veteran and editor in chief and executive producer of Rev3 games) appeared on Fox news yesterday to voice his opinion and explain the situation in a manner that everyone should be able to comprehend.
You can check out the video and some short thoughts after the jump.
Before I go any further, I would love to point out the brilliant quote Mr. Sessler delivered:
If your game has the name of a felony in it, it’s probably unwise to have your children engage in that.
This almost speaks to the core of the violent video game issue. While violent games may or may not be a direct cause in violent acts, they do definitely have an impact in the developmental phase of children. This leaves the responsibility to the parents to understand what their kids are playing and act according to how they want their child raised. I applaud Adam for being very informative about the issue and helping the audience understand the problem at hand.
