Gaming Myths

I've come to despise the word 'debunked.' It brooks no argument. If the debunker is wrong, what are you Accept your Ignorance. The correct term is 'challenged,' or, rarely, 're-educated.'

The link I found it at is pretty much a linkjack, but does say,

"Video games, like any other form of media, can only trigger the desire for violence already lying dormant in an emotionally disturbed child. They cannot “corrupt” someone who is mentally stable and understands that there is a distinct difference between fact and fiction."
