Video game violence

by Critical Commons Manager

Robin Williams discovers that his family's toy company is developing war games for children to play that are being used in real world military missions.

This is typical of the Hollywood critique of games, in which players are consistently victimized, hyperviolent and stripped of any real world agency by game manufacturers.
