Hello Pot? This is Kettle.

SLAYER frontman TOM ARAYA has hit out at violent video games, and fears they will turn today's children in to dangerous criminals.

The 45-year-old thrash rocker, whose band's song lyrics include "die by my hand in pools of blood", refuses to discuss how violence in music affects children - but highlights computer games as a genuine danger to kids. He says, "Kids have become so desensitised to violence, you know? I saw this video game recently where the point was to sell drugs and kill as many people as possible.

"You've got to wonder what a child who plays that is going to be like in 20 years' time."
