Violent Video Games

"Hundreds of ministers and pastors desperate to reach young congregants have drawn concern and criticism through their use of unusual recruiting tool " which is immensely popular but violent video game, reports The New York Times.The game in question is intended for mature audiences.In it the player,who takes on the role of a soldier, has to kill in a number of different ways.This has not prevented the organizers of several Protestant and evangelical youth groups from "stocking their centers with multiple game consoles so dozens of teenagers can flock around big-screen televisions and shoot it out," says the newspaper.
