Labour MP Tom Watson has told the BBC that remarks made by anti-game stalwart Keith Vaz about Modern Warfare 2 todkay ared a bridge too far.
“Everything that comes out of Parliament in relation to video games is relentlessly negative,” he said.
“There are thousands of people employed in this industry, there are 26 million people playing games. We should have a much more balanced view of the industry, indeed we should be supporting them through difficult times.”
Vaz went on a predictable warpath in the Mail today, saying MW2′s violence left him “absolutely shocked”.
Watson’s set up a Facebook group called Gamer’s Voice, designed to bring together people sick of game-bashers in the UK. Do the honourable thing.

We didn’t see this coming…
The Daily Mail has an article on it’s website, slamming Modern Warfare 2. And it only took this long.
One of the quotes from the article has a pop at the game for letting players kill civilians in terror attacks.
“Among the most controversial is a situation where the gamer must decide whether to kill unarmed civilians at a Russian airport in order to infiltrate a terrorist group.”
Labour MP Keith Vaz even has a say on the matter, saying he will air concerns for the game in parliament later on today.
“I am absolutely shocked by the level of violence in this game and am particularly concerned about how realistic the game itself looks,” said Vaz.
