My inlaws are from Venezuela, and boy is that place dangerous. As to the causes, videogames are a drop in the bucket compared with rampant crime, poverty, drugs and cheap distilled liquor.
Plus, nobody buys games from regular retailers over there. They either torrent them, or buy them from street vendors who sell cracked copies on cheap DVDs. The vendors will sell anything that makes a profit.
Tldr: this is just cheap rhetoric and a lot of hot air.This comment was edited on Nov 6, 2009, 13:34.
