How Washington Learned to Love Video Games

July 18, 2012 -

Libertarian-leaning publication ReasonTV has produced an entertaining five minute video about how video games have gone from being murder simulators and the scourge of parents everywhere (accused of causing everything from obesity to the loss of empathy in children, for example) to useful tools in the medical and mental health fields and fine art at museums.

We'll let the video speak for itself but there's no denying games have turned a corner when it comes to acceptance in America - even politicians have (mostly) given up on trying to regulate them.

You can check out the video to your left or visit Reason's YouTube Channel.

I love the last quote,

"For the first time we have gamers raising gamers and I believe from this point forward you're going to see a greater, more rapid appropriation and acceptance of video games well, as everything from art to worthwhile pursuit."
