    Re: Are violent video games adequately preparing children for the apocalypse?

    You know. Sometimes I lie awake at night, thinking that same thing. If we ever have and apocalypse, especially the zombie kind, we might need something seriously trained zombie killers/apocalyptic kids who are overweight, lack attention spans and are out of shape.

    We'll have to eat something, after all.

    I was thinking we would sit them in a bunker with some controllers, big tv's and some remote controlled weaponry. Not to mention a ton of Mountain Dew and candy bars. I personally would not want to walk into their field of view.

    Just put a few guns on turrets and hookem up to a 360 controller or mouse - I'll kill everything in site with one shot for the next 3 days without getting board.
