Our Rentaquote Future: Games As Warcrimes


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.

Blowing up churches and mosques is against international law, of course.

Except you don't have to imagine. They asked us, and Jim and John are quoted arguing games' side. Go read.
