20/20 Game Violence Debate


ABC News online has details of a 20/20 broadcast last night which had interviews with Todd Hollenshead Lt. Col. David Grossman. Because Todd was invited we could of course finally also hear the other side of the story. Todd showed that violence hasnt been so low in years while the gaming industry has exploded in terms of sales, something the host John Stossel agreed with. Also it seems that Grossman's "fact" of the Marines using Doom to desensitizes recruits, is just an opinion as it turns out they use Doom to teach eye and hand coordination and to help develop teamwork . There is also a transcript of an ABC chat with Lt. Col. Grossman available here. To be continued for sure..
