Recently Fox "News" posted an article about the upcoming Epic game Bulletstorm, asking, "Is Bulletstorm the Worst Game in the World?" This question was asked because of the explicit nature of the game. Namely, the skillshots such as the "gangbang" skillshot which involves killing multiple enemies. The article goes on to quote an "expert" on the subject named Carole Lieberman who said
“The increase in rapes can be attributed in large part to the playing out of sexual scenes in video games"
The article goes on to say that even though the game is rated M for mature, it won't be kept out of the hands of children because the ESRB rating system is not enforced by some retailers. While this is a logical point (and probably the only logical point of the whole article) that still doesn't make the idea of limiting our freedom sound any more appealing.
So the question remains. Is Bulletstorm the worst video game in the world? The answer is of course no. There are many games out there that are much worse for kids, but the article in question is not really about Bulletstorm, but is simply another anti gaming rant by people that have never picked up a controller.
