Too funny. WWE wrestler Randy “PR nightmare” Orton has told Eurogamer that there isn’t enough violence in videogames.

“Violence sells. I want to see more violence in games – the more blood the better,” he said, arguing that games were the least of parents’ worries, when some “don’t know their kids are watching South Park”.

He cited Goodfellas as evidence that movie violence could be far more shocking than anything in a game, calling Grand Theft Auto “just a cartoon” in comparison.

“The violence [in Goodfellas] is against human beings. There’s rape in movies – you see all kinds of f***ed up s*** on film,” he added.
