Other: Genocide Ain't So Bad

So it occured to me as I was into my 11th hour on one game of Civilization 3, that for all the complaints about vilence in computer games it's always Grand Theft Auto or Medal of Hono(u)r or DOOM or some other First Person Shooter that catches most of the grief. Which is a little strange, because here I am deciding to invade a former ally, destroying their cities and pillaging their lands for the sake of some rare resources that they don't want to sell me. Using nuclear weaponry is actually a tactic in this game.

But I guess if you don't see anyone die, then it's not, y'know, really real.
