Since John or Jim don’t appear to be going to link to it, I bloody will. BBC News ran a story today about two swiss organizations doing research into war crimes. Which is a serious topic, and to be applauded. Except it’s actually research into war crimes in videogames. And generally, games comes across pretty bad. Blowing up churches and mosques is against international law, of course. “[We] call upon game producers to consequently and creatively incorporate rules of international humanitarian law and human rights into their games.” You can only imagine what RPS may say to this. Except you don’t have to imagine. They asked us, and Jim and John are quoted arguing games’ side. Go read.
