German “Killer Game” Culling Fails to Set the World on Fire

What if you held a “killer game” destruction rally and nobody came?

Remember that “Familien gegen Killerspiele” event we heard about last week? How families of the tragic school shooting in Winnenden, Germany were asking people to come trash their “killer games” this weekend?

Well, as the above video shows, it wasn’t exactly a smash hit. I count five games in the very empty-looking bin, and one of those might just be like a brochure or flyer or something.

On the other hand, as Kotaku points out, this was in the early afternoon. Maybe all the devotees who were really looking to toss their violent games showed up later in the day. I wouldn’t bet on it, though.
