    You know what video games do influence us in the real world. I planted a car into a lampost once for trying to take the same line I would in Gran Turismo. Should the game be banned? No, I shouldn't have been such a wally in my nissan sunny thinking it was a skyline

    Games are useful for teaching you self defence. After being attacked from behind on a night out, I took my home-made battle rifle which I'd hidden down my trousers and proceeded to melee attack the youth. I could have shot him, but remembered from playing Halo 2, that the melee attack is just as effective in close quarter combat. Afterwards, I tea-bagged him good and proper.

    They can also be a hinderance to self defence though. After spending the day playing on a wii, the fight I got into that night was rather short with my chosen defence being me waving a tv remote about trying to perform an uppercut.

    He just doesn't give up. Does anyone really care what Jack thinks?

    I don't think he's ever won any of these cases. It seems like he just likes to cause a bit of aggro to inflate his ego and gain some exposure.

    Ah Jack Jack Jack. Learn that sometimes a hands off approach is wise. This is one of those cases. Sod off to the other side of the pond.

    Thats what these activists don't get, they create massive amounts of hype for the product they are against.

    Take Bully for instance (canis canem edit). They didn't even bother finding out what the game was really about they saw the name, gave their knickers another twist and made sure it hit the headlines, you can't buy that kind of publicity.

    Yes, and on that basis alone I want the sequel banned - it was utter rubbish
