Video Games: The Movie offers insider views on videogame violence

For several years, videogames have been the subject of heated debates on whether they cause or influence people to perform criminal or violent acts.  Every time, it seems, that there is a tragedy, the finger pointing begins with the gaming industry often on the other end of those blame-casting fingers.  Now, it seems, veterans of the gaming industry are ready to take on these misconceptions in a film of their own:  Video Games: The Movie.

Featuring several high-profile developers, Video Games: The Movie will give viewers some solid information about violence and videogames and the effect it can have on people without rampant speculation and finger pointing.  It’ll be nice to see the people who put together the games we all enjoy defend the medium.

Video Games: The Movie is scheduled for release this September.
