It’s getting to the point of absurdity: video games are officially the go-to excuse for people who don’t want to admit something staring them right in the face.
We wish we were joking. But we’re not. Not a day goes by that a story doesn’t wind up in our inbox or DMed to us about video games killing something, anything. In fact, it’s gotten to the point where it’s hard to keep track of just what the hell games are supposed to be killing.
So, we thought we’d put together a brief slideshow of what video games are allegedly wiping off the face of the Earth, according to people who fear them. We found all of these simply by entering “video games are killing” into Google.
