Next review will be over Diablo II coming... tomorrow!
What is it these days with video games having such a negative connotation? I mean, look at me. I am a university student who is a math and computer science major(next semester moving on to computer engineering). I am also in the honors program of said university. I am also fairly active and in shape and have had many healthy(well sorta) relationships.. Did I mention through all of this that I have played video games fairly heavily since I was a child(longer than I care to remember)
Yet through all of this I still hear of video games getting a negative reputation. On the news I have heard of Dead Space 2 getting negative remarks about it's graphical violence and what not. I find it silly to think that children are persuaded into thinking this is real and should be imitated, and if they have a mental problem where this occurs shouldn't the parents be watching what they do? I guess that is the root of the problem though... Parents. Parents don't want to watch Jr. after work and instead allow an Xbox or Playstation babysit him while they relax. Then when they wonder why their child misbehaves they blame it on the video game instead of their own shoddy parenting. All in all, parents need to grow up and realize that video games are not a very good scapegoat when you have people like me(and most all of my friends as well) who play games all the time and maintain healthy lifestyles and GPA's in school.
I apologize for the rambling as it is late, but anyone have any comments?
