Here we go.

A pig hanging from a leash, struggling to escape.

Beating the shit out of a hooker in a car racing game.

Cruelly crushing a doe-eyed mushroom-shaped creature with your big Italian plumber feet.



How does what we experience inside a videogame affect us when the console is off?

I had a problem with the pig in MC because it seemed like animal cruelty.

I know that it was just a bunch of code, but it bothered me.

Mea Culpa: I also name my cars and have been known to talk to inanimate objects.

Bear in mind, the video game in question allows (some might argue, requires in the early game) you to punch cows to death with your bare hands.

Well I was trying to expand the argument outward, to a larger sphere of discussion than just the pig-on-a-leash (hereafter referred to as P.O.A.L. or "POAL").
