A columnist in Canada has called video games "crack cocaine," bluntly proposing to readers: "Don't play video games." Writing
for the conservative National Post
, Father Raymond J. de Souza (pictured) explained that he "learned the truth" about video games the hard way -- he hasn't touched one after deleting Tetris.
De Souza went on to label video games as "dangerous," blaming them for fat kids and missed pockets in time. Just about what you'd expect from "the crack cocaine of the electronic world."
As if approaching Godwin's Law
wasn't enough, Father de Souza also insisted that too many games celebrate graphic violence, multifarious delinquency and borderline pornography. We guess Father de Souza will be missing out on the joys of Peggle
too, what with Tetris
being "deadly enough" for him.
