Forums goon xdrquinnx started a thread this week about old, nonviolent video games, saying:
"Before the days of Mortal Kombat, video games were generally pretty non-violent. Well, there was violence, I guess, but it was never very graphic. Mario hopped on a goomba, squished it and it disappeared. Link hit something with a sword and it flashed a couple times before vanishing. You'll never get kids' attention nowadays with that sort of sissy nonsense..."
And everyone rushed in to fill screenshots of old video games with blood, gore, and whorehouses. Enjoy this week's Comedy Goldmine, "Adding Violence To Nonviolent Video Games."
