Rockstar Games (creators of the infamous Grand Theft Auto) have created a new video game called “Bully.”

SKINHEAD thug wins a bloody playground fight with a classmate, before hunting down a teacher as his next victim. This is Bully. A new video game that’s been called the sickest ever, a sadistic orgy of violence where you win points for being the most vicious yob in a reform school.

News of the game’s release comes as research suggests that playing violent video games makes youngsters more aggressive.

Or maybe not. While the game – which I sincerely hope is rated M for Mature – may be cathartic for those adults out of school who wish to indulge in a bit of electronic revenge, you have to wonder what the effect might be on any kid whose parent lets them spend lots of unsupervised time in video game carnage.

I don’t even know what to say, this is so sick and irresponsible. It’s that “being in Nazi Germany feeling” I talked about in an earlier post. Where is the outrage? Where are the sane people who would not allow this?
