It's nice to see some press that isn't bashing video games or portraying them as some oddball sniper school, etc. Henry Jenkins, a professor from MIT, wrote a nice article entitled "Reality Bytes: Eight Myths About Video Games Debunked". It's a good read.
This type of article always reminds me of a conversation I had a few jobs back with our groups administrative assistant. I am, and will continue to be, a gamer. I started with Pong, graduated to Doom, and am currently playing WoW, Civ IV and recently finished FEAR. She was telling me how all "video game players kill people" - no joke, her exact words.
I looked her straight in the eye and delievered one of those "OMG did I just say that?" lines; "Then you'd be dead."
She looked at me very oddly as I explained that I, and a number of other people in the group, played violent (Quake 2 in this case) games at lunch. Funny though, none of us has killed anyone.
Yeah, she was shocked. Illustrated the point though. Games don't kill people, people kill people.
