Given the fact that I’ve produced a game that is all about bullying as my bachelor’s thesis, I’m now more aware of the topic. Even more so given the fact that the game in its current form is still more a proof of concept rather than a proper game. Since I plan to finish and release the game at some point, I keep an eye open for any developments and insights on the field.
Just a very short post, since the media are currently going ape-shit on video games (again …), and just as it always is, are flinging around more bullshit than actual facts.
The current accusation is that video games cause rape.
The increase in rapes can be attributed in large part to the playing out of [sexual] scenes in video games.
