It looks like someone went all HALO on someones ass. Seriously, it is just a video game system. It is not going to change your life. It might, but most likely for the worst. Just kidding, but come on people it is video game system.
It makes me think, how did we get this far as species?
Mr. Darwin, another point against you sir.
Hey, don’t get me wrong, I love my video games. I have had my share: Atari 2600, Sega, Game Boy, PS and PS2. I have never felt the compulsion to get it the first day, or to hunt the most dangerous game while doing it.
Look the only time video games ever should get violent is when you have a win all sewn up in Tecmo Bowl and somehow you give up 90 yard TD with no time left, or if you playing NES wrestling and someones little brother finds a way to cheat and you can’t win. That is when it is alright for you can get violent. There is actually a leagl defense to justify the action. It is called “Broken Paddle” Defense. It is right up their with the “Chewbacca Defense”.
Now here is how it works. Let’s say I killed Conrad Bain after losing a close game of Sonic the Hedgehog. Here is how that legal tactic would work.
District Attorney: “Your honor the state would like to charge Mr. Boski for the 4th Degree Murder of beloved TV Dad Conrad Bain Along with charges that this man has wantonly abused grammar. Mr. Boski savagely attacked Mr. Bain with Sega game system and beat him to his a pulp. Then proceeded to write about it on his Blog o’ Fun. Which our forensic specialist will show is not fun, and most likely not even a real blog.
Judge: “So Council how will Mr. Boski plead to the charge of killing Conrad Bain?”
Hired legal gun from Jacoby and Myers: ” We would plead Not Guilty your Honor”
Judge: “On what grounds”
Defense: “Broken Paddle your Honor, Mr. Bain, knowingly allow Mr. Boski to use the broken paddle”
District Attorney: “Ah shit!”
Judge: ” Case Dismissed”
District Attorney: “Can we at least charge Mr. Boski with crimes against English and grammar?”
Judge: “On what grounds?”
Defense: “Nothing, I just have always wanted to say that, but your honor, can Defense at least ask for a continuance, so I can cash this check?”
Judge: “Denied, Mr. Boski we will charge you with the other crimes.”
Mr. Boski: ” So I can guess where this is going to lead to.”
Judge: “Yep, Mr. Boski, you are getting the chair. I have tired to read some of the entries and I would be irresponsible to allow you to continue writing. Take him away.”
Mr. Boski:”Avenge me bloggers, Avenge Me!”
So in closing, the PS3 is not something worth getting shot for, now the Happy Days board game, I might take some shrapnel. But it is never cool to get violent over a video game. I have never done that, well okay, I once drew a knife on someone while playing Frogger, but I don’t want to talk about it.
So that is one to grow on.
