Early this morning we reported on a new study that claims one in 10 children are engaged in pathological gaming, prone to serious mental health issues. How does CNN handle the study?
Surprisingly well, if you ask me. They manage to mention that the 3000 children involved in the study were from Singapore, for instance, which is of course a completely different country than the United States with a completely different culture. They touch on the Entertainment Software Association’s assertion that this new study means absolutely nothing at all and was conducted with the aim of proving a negative point about the industry.
The only huge slip up I noticed was calling World of Warcraft a violent video game. Someone hasn’t played any WoW lately.
Thanks RtFusion for the link!
