People who have probably never even played solitaire are suddenly being quoted as expert witnesses on the perils of gaming and the threat it poses to society. Our children's innocence is at stake; gratuitous sex and violence are cutting a simulated swathe through civilisation; hookers are having their limbs hacked off with chainsaws; and expensive cars are being driven at improbable speeds, scattering hapless pedestrians as they go.
