Punching Nazis

quote [ Why are Nazis so popular as enemies? The obvious answer is 'because they murdered innocent people on an industrial scale', but there isn't really any correlation between the part someone played in history, and how often they show up in video games.

[…] You can't punch an ideology to death. […] This is literally why we have video games: if we could easily make bad things go away in the real world by punching them, we'd all be out there doing that, right now. ]

More thoughtful games journalism.

A colleague just got back from paternity leave, and the only lady in our IT department made a collection and got a card and gift to present to him. She had barely handed them over when the Italian guy sitting next to her interrupted to complain that he hadn't had a present when his son was born. She turned around and started arguing with him, and then another guy chipped in about how he hadn't had a present either. It all turned into an enormous argument about presents and New Dad was left standing there on his own, with card and sparkly bag of baby clothes in his hand. He turned away and quietly went back to his desk.

It was hilarious. In retrospect.

The aggrieved Italian had earlier said that he was going to visit the "little boys room." But it came out "I'm going to go and see the little boys."

"Video game solutions don't work in the real world." Very insightful.

So true. If it wasn't, I would have had a grue by now
