I'm not convinced there is a tangible link between violent video games and actual violent behaviour.

Its fair to say these kind of games have only been around for 20 years or so, and only the last 10 years with this level of realism, yet I would argue the society we live in now is less violent than the 70's and 80's. It certainly feels like it to me anyway, whatever the Daily Mail might say.

As for the location in Manchester Cathedral, I'm guessing as it is such an accurate depiction of the interior, somebody may have noticed the game procuction team mapping it out?

Dave Walker has drawn a cartoon about this:

Thanks for the link Chris - Dave Walker, in addition to his cartoon (which he himself admits is not one of his best!) there's a very good set of links to comments and blog postings on the debate. Worth a look.
