Video Game violence featured in GMA's I-Witness

[ THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED BY JOHN PHILLIPS BENGERO ON NOVEMBER 10th 2000 ]



Let's face it, Philippine main stream media are utterly clueless when it comes to video games. But still, GMA-7 insisted on producing an I-Witness episode about the violence in video games.

I wasn't able to watch the episode, but given GMA-7's track record for being clueless on video games, I doubt that they really understand what they've shown. Just look at the screenies I took from their website few months back:



Here you can see the Sony PSone. GMA-7 called it a GAME CONSULE.



How about my favorite Pokemon Pikachu? They called the poor fella Picachu.

GMA-7 is not alone. A few years ago, ABS-CBN's TV Patrol featured a raid of video karera machine operators. The reporter covering the raid mentioned something like this, "Inaalam pa ng pulisya kung saan nanggaling ang mga video karera machines na ito ngunit maaring gawing lead ng mga pulis ang mga nakatatak na dragon sa mga video karera machines...".

The reporter then points to the dragon sticker... a Mortal Kombat logo.



Dumba$$.
