A Kid in An Game Room

I’ve been sitting in a game room, watching a father and son blast the shit out of deer in a Big Buck Hunter arcade game. Well, that was disturbing enough, given that the kid is wearing camo shirt and pants and kept saying “Get some. Get some!” Then they switched over to Target: Terror and started blasting the shit out of people. This was more disturbing, because then the kid’s warcry became “Crack whore!” and “Get some, crack baby!”
I guess the recent massacre in Blacksburg, Virginia has colored my perception. But for some reason the image of a kid in camo gleefully blasting away at human targets left me feeling a bit odd.
Well, at least until I realized that the heavy metal music that kept looping and was better suited for WWE Smackdown was coming from the PGA Golf game. That was truly disturbing.
