Big Daddy from "Bioshock" Offers a Strawberry
An age-inappropriate video game character offers organic fruit for lunch:
Being allowed to play Bioshock is our older son's latest obsession. It is rated M for "Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Language, Mild Sexual Themes, and Use of Alcohol and Tobacco." Thank goodness there is no gambling.
According to its Wikipedia entry, it is also "one of the greatest video games of all time," and is a critique of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism.
I guess if I allow him to play it, we can discuss the dangers of laissez-faire capitalism afterwards.
