Stephen Colbert Kicks A Nerd's Ass With Stone Cold Logic
Last night, video game theorist Ian Bogost came on the Colbert Report with the idea that video games can be used to further social and political understanding in the American public. CU-KOO! CU-KOO! Yeah right- more like Ian Bogus. Luckily our man Stephen don't pull no punches with leftwing nerd crazies. Colbert does seem concerned by one aspect of Bogust's argument; on the subject of whether games can prepare us for real world scenarios, Colbert poses the question "If I play a lot of World of Warcraft, will I be prepared if - if our world ever becomes Warcraft?"
