Anne Diamond reviews some sick twisted games, assigns responsibility to everyone but herself


The knowledgeable Anne Diamond, writing via the Daily Mail - the trash passing off as a legitimate 'newspaper' that only sensible people like you and me uses to wipe their arse with, today gave her highly 'informed opinion' on video gaming in response to the Byron review. In it piece she trashed most, if not all major mainstream video games released in the past year. She did get a couple of things right, that Halo 3 is 'in' and that as a parent she should guard constantly on what kind of content she allows into her own home. But then she completely lost the plot, saying that war games like Call of Duty 4 is okay (in small doses!) but a fantasy game like Resident Evil 4 (which received a 15 rating from the BBFC) should not be sold to adults. Just like her puppet masters at the Daily Mail, the only thing she and her evil cohorts want is to regulate what we can or can not consume.

Anne Diamond, these games are rated. It is your problem as a parent to stop your 12 year old son from buying the games you listed. You even admitted that you allowed a 15 rated game into your home! Stop acting like a hypocritical ding bag, as it only make yourself look more idiotic than TV presenters normally are. To be honest your reviews were entertainingly amusing, very comedic, that you may even make it to the staff of Official Nintendo Magazine, though that doesn't make it right.

Excuse my bad language. I have been reading what these idiots pretending to be experts have been writing, and it makes me sick.

I completely agree!
I just wrote an article for my college magazine about how angry these people make me.
It's pathetic the way they try and control what we play.

I Love Resident Evil! Though I only play the RE3. Will have to save money to buy wii! =)

Play RE4 on PS2, PC or GCN. No need for Wii.

Is Anne Diamond that news reporter that used to be skinny, but put on a tonne of weight and went on a Celebrity Big Brother?

*Googles Anne Diamond...*

Yep. She's the one! In short - she needs to shut her mouth. As you rightly said Jon, the games are rated. It's the responsibility of retailers to ensure the games aren't sold to minors, and the responsibility of parents to ensure their children aren't playing games they shouldn't. Plus, if she was going to make an example of violence in video games, she could've picked something more violent. Like say Manhunt or GTA. Although her arguement would still be flawed.

I honestly don't know. Never watch BB shitfest.

I would love to see her review more games though. Fucking entertaining.
