Modern Warfare 3 Committing ‘Gratuitous Violence Against Members of the Public’

A MW3 player pressing a key that makes their player character shoot another character is not actually committing an act of violence, any more than a little girl carrying a doll about by it’s foot is guilty of child abuse.

Portal 2 Is The Best Local Multiplayer Game Of The Last 10 Years

I rate this game as 10/10 every single time and I think it one of the best games of this year already. The ping tool and the obvious voice chat between myself and my online co-op partner were vital to solve many of the puzzles but you don’t get the same sense of achievement and joy when you both complete a puzzle online as you do when your sat next to one another, getting frustrated and then in the next minute being overjoyed and feeling like some sort of Stephen Fry, Stephen Hawking or some other clever Stephen named fellow, when you have completed a mind bending puzzle.
