    eek Six hundred million gamers could be war criminals, Red Cross says

    THE Red Cross is investigating whether 600 million gamers are violating the Hague and Geneva conventions when they kill and blow stuff up for fun.
    Delegates at the 31st International Conference of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Red Crescent raised the concerns over the potential “International Humanitarian Law” violations – which can constitute war crimes - during a workshop in Geneva.


    Playing games like Call of Duty: World of Warfare could make you a war criminal, if the Red Cross has its way




    Does killing zombies in Resident Evil would count as a war crime?
