In the eye of the beholder

David Thomas of Buzzcut comments on the recent debate sparked by the list of 10 Worst Violent Video Games published by the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility.

He is not exactly impressed:

The net effect is to mask real efforts to improve the videogame rating and retail system, and to push to the side a fair dialog about the social impacts of games. The word Iím looking for, the context again, is propaganda. The ICCR has stooped to punditry to press their point of view. And as a result, the good in their mission is tainted with the stink of polemic politics.
