Adam Sessler Addresses the Violent Video Game Debate on Fox News [FIXED]
By Nick Henderson on January 30th, 2013 (16 comments)
Adam Sessler, currently the editor-in-chief at Revision3 has long been someone whom I feel has managed to handle complex and sensitive topics with a sense of grace and objectivity. With the tragedies in Sandy Hook Elementary and Aurora Colorado once again stirring up the violent video game debate, Sessler took an opportunity to speak to Fox News and present a well organized argument against those placing blame on the gaming industry.
I for one certainly wont deny the violent nature of games but I do tend to fall in line with Sessler's final argument (an argument that many have tried to make in the past but not quite as eloquently). Violent Games are not for children and are instead intended for people who are mature enough to process and compartmentalize the subject matter.
In all honesty though, it is hard to place blame on any one aspect of our society for these kinds of events. My first instinct would be to place blame not on the content itself but the way publishers market this content to the public. With that said, their primary concern is staying in business and making a profit so I understand why it works out that way. Is it the parents fault? What about the film industry? There are too many factors to point the blame at any ONE of them.
I'm just pleased that there are still people in this industry who can speak on our behalf in such a respectable manner. Thanks for keepin it classy Adam!
I have been around since the very early days of 4Player but you may know me as “the short one” or the guy who is really into Dexter and that sweet new DmC reboot. I am a gaming enthusiast at my core and I love sharing my opinions on the subject with anyone who will listen. I am a cautious optimist and will try any game at least once. When it comes to gaming, I prefer to leave no stone unturned.
