BEAT THE BULLIES: A NEW LOW …THE VIDEO GAME THAT MAKES IT COOL TO BE A BULLY
By David Edwards
A 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.
And it appears in the same week as the Daily Mirror launched the Beat The Bullies campaign, backed by X-Factor judge Simon Cowell.
Horrified child welfare campaigners and teachers’ groups are calling on the government to ban the Bully game.
Liz Carnell of campaign group Bullying Online says: "This game should be banned. I’m extremely worried that kids will play it and then act out what they’ve seen in the classroom. [/quote]
What do you all think? Bad? Good? Indifferent?
