Gaming ethics

  1. 1. Gaming Ethics Violence- Video game controversies are societal and scientific arguments about whether or not the content of video games can change the behaviour and attitudes of a player. Since the early 1980s, advocates of video games have emphasized their use as an expressive medium, arguing for their protection under the laws governing freedom of speech and also as an educational tool. Detractors argue that video games are harmful and therefore should be subject to legislative oversight and restrictions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_game_controversies
  2. 2. Pegi Ratings- Pan European Game Information (PEGI) is a European video game content rating system established to help European consumers make informed decisions on buying computer games with logos on games' boxes. It was developed by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE) and came into use in April 2003; it replaced many national age rating systems with a single European system. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_European_Game_Information Education- With education we can learn about the difference between video game violence and violence outside of games. Video games can teach us different aspects, whether they’re positive or negative. Stereotyping- People are convinced it’s because of video games that we stereotype against certain people such as women or races.
  3. 3. Addiction- Through addiction, people play games for hours because they feel the need they have to play or they play for excessive amounts of time, there have been death cases due to people excessively playing video games.
