Violent Pac-Man III: Stanton Strikes Back

As the story goes so far, About.com's Aaron Stanton wrote a piece about Dr. Kimberly Thompson's research in which she measured the amount of violence in a video game. Pac-Man was found to show scenes of violence 62% of the time during a 90-minute session. We contacted Dr. Thompson, an associate professor at Harvard University, and printed her response.

Now responding to her rebuttal, Stanton reaffirms his original criticisms and arguments. Instead of adding our own snark or sarcasm to the piece, we are going to stay out of this one. Click on the above image to read Stanton's response and then let us know what you think.
