Call me crazy, and I'm sure some will, but it's less about the video game and more about our society at large. Consider this: We live in a culture that places a heavy emphasis on military service. There's inherently wrong w/ that if its f...or the actual service of our country. But look where we are: We're fighting three wars, two of which we probably didn't need to be in. Look at how we reacted after we got Osama. We acted like America won the Super Bowl.

Speaking of which, look at America's favorite game. I love football, but let's not sugarcoat this. It IS a violent game. Extremely violent, in fact. Furthermore, look at America's fascination w/ guns.

Bob, I think when you figure all of these things together, the bottom line is this: Americans dig violence. Mortal Kombat and the ilk have made incredible profit off of that. I'm not sure that Mortal Kombat needs to tone it down.

I think we do.
