Op Ed

MCV - What to do with 'media bullshit'.
And let's not be mistaken this sleeplessness story is a stupid as they come. Games aren't making kids sleepy. Parents' inability to enforce discipline with their kids is. Gaming's just the scapegoat. As it always is.

But at the same time we have to acknowledge that The Sun, The Daily Mail and many other media outlets (and I won't completely absolve MCV from responsibility here) sometimes write things because they know other people will react to it, write about it and link to it.

Den of Geek - Why videogames haven't grown up yet: sex. Thanks Ant via Slashdot.
It's often said that, compared to television and film, the videogame medium is in its infancy, a mere pup compared to the elder statesmen of visual entertainment. The immaturity of videogames can be forgiven because, in essence, they're at that difficult teenage stage, obsessed with bodily fluids and naked flesh. But is that fair, or is it a get-out-of-jail card that's played a little too often by an industry that doesn't want to accept its limitations?

I don't think games can do sex right until we have the peripherals. Logitech are missing a trick.
