Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

Is there anyone of any age who's mature on halo? I know some guys that are absolute saints in real life, but on Halo, they're assholes of the highest order.


Those guys are complete repressed in real life. There's a saying that if some person acts like a jerk in a game, he's a jerk also in real life.

That's an awfully pessimistic view. By the same logic, you could probably call them repressed murderers. I think its the Halo/online-gaming culture that they conform to when immersed. When not immersed in that culture, they revert to their normal selves.
