Summary Given the wild popularity of violent video games, it has never been more urgent to encourage dialogue about how virtual killing might shape attitudes about real-life violence. Game Over examines the nature and consequences of simulated violence, and encourages high school and college students to think critically about how gender and race are depicted in the video and computer games they play.
