Venezuelan President Says Games Are "Poison"

Illustration for article titled Venezuelan President Says Games Are Poison

As we've covered a few times before, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez is not only a nutty man, he's a nutty man that hates video games. Hates them so much be believes they're "poison".


"Those games they call 'PlayStation' are poison", Chavez (left, in his Brotherhood of NOD costume) said on his weekly show Alo Presidente. "Some games teach you to kill. They once put my face on a game, 'you've got to find Chavez to kill him."


Think he means Mercenaries 2. And he's not done, continuing that games "promote the need for cigarettes, drugs and alcohol so they can sell them.". "They" being capitalist pigs like our good selves. "That's capitalism, the road to hell".

Tinpot dictators (well, he's close enough) say the darnedest things!
