Real or Unreal

By John Ross Harvey

I just read this news article:

Ok they play a virtual game based on their real life persona
But if this woman gets charged for killing a digital playmate
How many children will be charged for letting Mario Fall?
Or sending Sonic on a never-ending scream
Never mind the 30 something’s that grew up with Doom and Duke Nukem
All the 20 something’s playing Grand Theft Auto games
I know I’ve killed plenty of digital characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Captain Falcon rules.

The world as we know it will change forever if this woman is charged with killing some binary data in video game.
