Remember [URL=http://rosemond.com/index.php?action=website-view&WebSiteID=389&WebPageID=9891]John K. Rosemond[/URL] ? The family psychologist who said that video games were "nefarious devices" ?

In fact, Rosemond has been slamming video games (not only violent ones, but video games [I]per se[/I]) since the early 1980s, and had been criticized for it, even in his own journal, [I]The Charlotte Observer[/I]. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]I just need to insert here that [I]The Charlotte Observer[/I] is a Newspaper in Charlotte, NC and is NOT Rosemond's personal journal. The language Soldat is using is incorrect. Rosemund may write editorials in the Observer but he does not own [I]The Charlotte Observer.[/I][/COLOR]He then wrote in last June [URL=http://www.arcamax.com/parents/s-83154-865590]a parent's story[/URL] supposedly proving that he was right. I've seen this story in former GP forums, and Kotaku [URL=http://kotaku.com/gaming/fud/videogames-are-nefarious-devices-178865.php]had a story about it.[/URL]

And now, guess what ? He's back against video games !

On his website, he wrote a column [URL=http://rosemond.com/index.php?action=website-view&WebSiteID=389&WebPageID=13765]recommending cold turkey against video game habit[/URL] and reported a story of parents who had won over their teenage son's addiction. This column has been published under different titles on various newspapers and sites, including [I]The Charlotte Observer[/I]. And once again, he talks about "nefarious devices".

Once you finish this column; go see some readers' reaction (go on his website, then click on "People are talking" link).

Well, anti-games still exist. Although this one can't beat Boris Johnson.
