During the recent Senate hearings on video game violence, one expert claimed that the ESRB underrated violent games. They went on to say that Pacman was 64% violent. To some, this means you shouldn't play Pacman; to others, it highlights what's wrong with Senate hearings.Pacman must be stopped. He kills ghosts (not that different from people) by consuming them whole through his mouth. Terrifying! When he is caught by ghosts, he is spun in circles until the centrifugal force causes his brain to hemorrage and kills him. Awful! Plus, given the current epidemic of childhood obesity, is it really okay to show a heroic character who eats everywhere he travels and receives bonus points for consuming delicious fruits as large as his body?
Good thing the Senate is working to protect us from this sort of villainy.
