Opinion: A Discussion on Video Game Violence

By: Nick Farinola There’s nothing quite like assassinating your targets with a hidden blade in the historically accurate settings of the Assassin’s Creed games, severing the limbs of Dead Space’s frightening necromorphs on the USG Ishimura spaceship, or mutilating space Nazis with combat axes and a weapon that fires self-detonating explosives in the Wolfenstein reboot series.
