Games lead to cannabilism


GamePolitics slightly exaggerate this story, but the title was just too darn catchy to resist!! It’s basically the whole ‘adult games sold to children’ debate continued because of ‘video games report card’ from the US National Institute on Media and the Family, has just come out. And I suppose ‘cannibalism’ is thrown around because it is games that involve eating human brains a.s.o. that get the worst criticism, because this ‘can’t be good for kids’!
I suppose the whole problem lies with the perception that ‘games’ are for children. We’ve moved way passed that long ago and I’m sure I’ve read somewhere that games are much more popular with males between 20 and 35 than kids in general…but I’m unsure where I read that!

  1. Jeg vet også at jeg har lest at de som spiller mest (største konsumentgruppe) er menn mellom 18 og 35 år. (med stadig økende alder i følge funcoms representant på ftbergns seminar om gaming…) Men jeg klarer heller ikke å finne hvor. Det jeg fant var barenvaktens konkurranse-ting, hvor nettopp 18-25år er riktig svar på “Hvem spiller mest?” http://www.barnevakten.no/sider/eksamen.asp?EKSAMEN=DataspillJeg antar at barnevakten har mer info om temaet, uten at jeg leitet alt for mye. -E

  2. Takk Eirik! Skal ta en nærmere titt og se hvis jeg finner ut av det! Mener Guardian har også nettopp gjennomført en massiv undersøkelse og kommet frem til de samme konklusjonene!
