With so much baiting of the games industry going on in the media it’s always nice to see someone impartial reporting something positive about it, especially when it seems to contradict the old “gaming makes you violent” maxim by giving games an application where they’re going to help people. If sick children aren’t going to get people on our side I don’t know what will. Maybe games helping sick baby animals?
What would be even nicer would be to see the likes of the Daily Mail reporting on it, but apparently that sort of story doesn’t sell as many papers as some sensationalist bullshit about how Manhunt has you playing as someone who kills for sexual pleasure (it doesn’t, in case you couldn’t guess).
Thank goodness for the BBC; it’s good to know that they’re going to be around for at least ten more years.
