I like fantasy violence. This is why I play games.
Okay, new stuff for the anti-violence faction in Germany. They already want to ban all "killer-games" again because of that shooting recently. And the parents of the victims demanded that in their open letter.

These are quote I really find scaring. So someone playes games because of the violence involved ? Sounds to me like a statement of a warrior kaste.

Games are NOT played because they are NOT violent ? Because that would be the same argument turned upside down.

So I'm sure he will never, never ever play the game "Book Of Unwritten Tales" … Because it is a fantasy adventure (game) … No violence at all …

Sometimes I can do nothing but shake my head in disbelief.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
