Playing Killzone is the equivalent of doing Cocaine

Submitted by on Tuesday, 25 May 20103 Comments

It has been a lovely quiet few weeks hasn’t it?  With all the furore over the ‘Con-demed’ British Government, the tabloids have left us gamers to prance merrily in the fields of Sony.

The holiday’s over guys and gals – as they are at it again.

A local rag has once again brought gaming to the attention of angry parents, as it claims to have “discovered” that a growing number of young people in the county are seeking professional help after becoming hooked on the fantasy world of console games.

They have found an expert (although it is never explained what he is an expert in) who is claiming that two hours playing Killzone is equivalent to taking a line of Cocaine.  Maybe this is how we fix ‘Broken Britain’ – free Killzone for everyone!

Step forward young Jack, who lives in Garstang.  He had the following to say about gaming;

“Playing on my games console was all I wanted to do and it was the first thing I thought of as soon as I woke up. I would play for hours on end without even realising.

It was like it was a demon that had got inside my brain and I just couldn’t stop. If my parents tried to stop me playing, I would just flip.

I lost touch with my mates, started doing badly at school and became an angry and aggressive person that wasn’t the real me.”

Totally the games fault – and in no way the fault of the weak parents who allowed their child to have a hissy fit and get what he wanted.

In all honesty there is more – but it’s such over hyped scare mongering that repeating it would just be a waste of time.  If you fancy reading it, follow the yellow brick road.

Have you ever got to the point where a game is in some way affecting your way of life?  Don’t even mention Super Stardust HD…Oh the nightmares.
