What happened to video games?


I'm an 80's baby. I remember donkey kong, tetris, racing games, and who can forget super mario brothers? It was fun without after affects. Today we have halo, call of duty, medal of honor and various other misguided games. What happened? Tetris helped children learn how to build. Call of duty is teaching children how to murder someone efficiently. Every child has violent video games. When a child dies because a little boy tries to shoot daddy's gun just like how he uses those guns playing grand theft auto, why is everyone the blame except for the game creators? Are ganes creating killers?

    I'm not going to go out of my way to avoid exposing my children to sex and violence-laden media. Sex, after all, is a part of life. Nothing inherently bad about it. I will, however, do my job as a parent and explain that the game is, y'know, fantasy.
