"This game is teaching you to hack into whatever is docked in your bedroom. What the heck is wrong with us?"
In Watch Dogs, players can hack into security cameras, traffic lights, phones, and just about anything else that is connected via the fictional omnipresent city-wide operating system ctOS. Hacking is either done via a simple press of a button, or through a laborious mini-game that bares no resemblance to how, I assume, hacking is done in real life. However, a conservative political commentator Glenn Beck disagrees, and in fact thinks Ubisoft's latest open-world action-adventure is teaching you how to hack.
Speaking in a segment on news network The Blaze, Beck says the game encourages you to "become the ultimate voyuer in other people's lives, including their bedrooms, by hacking into their phones and everything."
"This game is teaching you to hack into whatever is docked in your bedroom. What the heck is wrong with us? What are we thinking? We are inviting this into our home and our lives. We are teaching our kids for entertainment purposes," Beck said. You can watch the segment below.
Watch Dogs released this week to great crticial reception. While the PC version is plagued with a variety of issues, the PS4 and Xbox One versions seems to fair better.
