    Videogames corrupting the Youth. Only this time, via liberal indoctrination.

    So we can't play the violent games, and now even SimCity is out. How long before Solitaire is fingered for encouraging gambling?

    I'm guessing these bojos have no such problem with Tofu Boy's performance in Super Meat Boy.

    In case you were wondering; yes, you did just see Fox News complaining about scare-mongering and guilt tactics.

    I think it's talking about SimCity Societies, which was released four years ago. So either it's an old video or Fox News is being typically clueless about games. I wouldn't like to bet either way, to be honest.

    It was shown yesterday. But yeah, they seem to get confused between SimCity and SimCity Societies. But then it's Fox, they also seem to get confused between Fact and Fiction.

    "What's boring about building pipelines?" Couldn't resist doing a whole games segment without getting a cheap shot in there. Clueless moron.

    Off topic: the ad I had to watch to sit through that was for some file backup software, which claimed that if you spill coffee on your keyboard your files will still be safe! How 'bout that.
