of my fellow Brothers In Christ, I was shocked, saddened, and outraged
when I heard that the US Government was going to allow the new
megaviolent animated videogame Bulletstorm to be released. This comes
even after Child Advocate and Actual Medical Doctor Carole Lieberman
(in an interview on Fox News) proved conclusively that violent
videogames cause rape by claiming that they did.
When pressed for "evidence" to back up her claims, she was unable to
produce even a single shred. This of course led to cries of
"irresponsible journalism" and "fear-mongering" amongst pro-rape
advocates in the gaming industry, but the more educated among us know that those who constantly
clamor for reputable scientific studies to back up what appear to be
unsubstantiated and outrageous claims are missing the point: Violent
videogames exist, and until they are successfully banned, our children
will continue commit acts of violence, torture, embezzlement, and
premarital sexual assault.
But what of Bulletstorm specifically? Is this game truly as
reprehensible as so many have claimed? The answer, of course, is a
wholehearted and undeniable "yes."
