Male domestic violence and video games

There's a new article about male domestic violence from me over at the WVON site, of which I am a very proud co-editor. It's already spawned a lively debate over at my Facebook page, so I'd love to hear your comments, either here or in the WVON comments box.

In other news, are there any other non-gamers (as in XBox 360, and that cube thing, whatever) out there who whilst feeling no desire to game themselves are addicted to watching others do it? I bought my brother, an avid player and advocate of gaming, Dante's Inferno for the Xbox 360, and not only is it amazing and hugely entertaining to watch, but it's also inspired me to finally get around to reading the whole thing - who said gaming was about dumbing down?

Metro 2033 is an example of another game based around a book. You're right Sarah, video games definately aren't dumbing down.

Just take a look at Lego Harry Potter for example... oh no, wait - I'm disproving the hypothesis now!

See you soon,
Dan
