Newspaper Offering Cash for Games-to-Crime Stories

By Jorge Ba-oh 31.03.2008 8

National newspaper is said to be offering heaps of cash for stories of video games leading to violence and crime.

In the aftermarth of the Byron Review wanting game ratings to be overhauled, a national paper is said to be offering readers "hundreds of pounds" for their stories against video games, confessing how violent games have made them turn to the "dark" side, according to MCV.

A national newspaper wants your story and will pay hundreds of pounds to the right person. Write a few lines about how computer games turned you to crime and if it's something we like, we'll call you straight back.

  • Do Computer Games turn you to a life of crime?
  • Thanks to C3 readers Phoenixus and Linkyshinks for the tip.

    This Byron Report, I have never read anything of it's type before but I am intrigued by what the conclusions are. I am going to have to read that soon. I sense that some of it's content will be the typical crap that angers many gamers.

    Bloody papers love dishing out sensationalist crap.

    For a few hundred quid I'm sure I could make something mildly realistic up Smilie

    Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

    Which paper is this anyone know? This is the worst thing I've ever seen.

    I need to throw up.

    this is a joke their basically asking people to make up shit so video games get a bad name

    well duh, thats how tabloids work in the UK.

    Thankfully, like most things. No one cares. It'll just create a mild stir.

    Video games, like movies, will remain violent - and while films are censored, video games should be as well.

    This could so be abused by parents and bloody religious fanatics to put video games into a very bad light.

    It's silly that video games are blamed for violence among youth, but movies that are arguably worse are left alone. The solution is simple: don't expose kids to adult content in games OR in movies... duh.

    I might write in and say that horrendous licensed and shovelware titles like Alvin and the Chipmunks and Ninjabread-Man made me smash windows, that might help get rid of them. Smilie
