He Does Have a Point

"These people" refers of course those politicians giving game publishing/developing/distributing companies trouble. While I don't think it would be a good thing, he's definitely got a point. At the same time, I've got to wonder why Los Angeles didn't get their panties in a bunch about something like Die Hard. While I can identify with the fear of being linked to terrorist plots, that doesn't make it true. Seriously, they've got television shows about Las Vegas that link it to plenty of other things. It's interesting why the specific fear of terror.

As usual Tycho's commentary is spot on.

It's my theory that the videogame industry just isn't giving these people enough money. It's always a big scandal for five seconds when the true extent of this practice is exposed, but they aren't going to get out of this crap until they start greasing their forearms all the way up to the elbow and shoving handfuls of Benjamin Franklins so far up a senator's ass that he can read off the serials.
