the boy – all six point five years of unreasonable aesthetically challenged male youth wishes me to engage with him in his gaming habits. First up, he shows me a gruesome motorway race game, wherein the player leaps from vehicle to vehicle and if they aren’t fast enough they get splatted. Yuk!
Then on to something called 1917, which appears to be a wargame based around trench warfare, complete with soldiers getting blown to bits and gas attacks. Not sure whether i am most offended by the tasteless aspect of this game – or the historical violation.
Because, coming over the horizon, what are those? er, German tanks!
(Now sits back and waits for some history geek – sorry, expert – to point out that the Germans actually DID have tanks in 1917).
