    It's aggression, you dolt!
    Perhaps people will finally accept that games and sports are good for us, channelling instinctive needs into harmless activities.

    Gamers have known this for years. Why else do we keep invading the neighboring country that is 1/4th the size of ours?

    I was also thinking of the people who claim that video games cause aggression.
