Default Who is the greatest enemy of video games?

That's what i've been asking myself lately. I don't have TV, so I'm not very informed about the outside world; and I don't check CNN.com. So....
Who is the greatest enemy of video games?(in your opinion)
Who despises them so much that they think every crime and murder is caused by video games?

I say Jack Thompson. <img src=smilies/puke.gif>

Default The clock.

The clock.

Seriously, a clock counting down is the single biggest obstacle in all of video games. It adds a sense of urgency, causing even the easiest stages to be difficult. Also, a clock prevents a user from really taking a look around, interacting with the background, searching for secrets, etc.

Take the timer away, and there is a weight lifted off the player's shoulders, as now he can take more time to strategize and explore the level.

*edit: hmm. apparently i should have RTFP. oh well. i like what I just wrote, so I'm gonna leave it. <P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by juggaleaux on 10/31/05 12:14 AM.</FONT></P>

Default YOUR MOTHER

No, really.

Most of the complaints I've heard about videogames come from mothers. Fathers don't really care either way. But mothers? Yeesh.

Who is the greatest enemy of video games?

The parents and groups who say video games inspire killing people.

Default I'd say

The video game industry. Cranking out the same old crap, month after month, year after year, relying on gimmicks and nicer graphics to sell. Once Sony and Microsoft eliminate Nintendo from the market, they'll be able to persue their dreams of being the living room media hub that coincidentally plays video games. With PC games gasping for their last breaths, that will signal the next great video game crash, and user in the second dark age.

But you guys knew I was going to say that.
