Noel Gallagher on games

Guitar Hero better than "somebody getting their f***ing head chopped off with a samurai sword while getting f****d by a goblin up the arse with a laser"

Oasis man Noel Gallagher has been speaking to MusicRadar about his upcoming album and he touched upon the Guitar Hero phenomenon, giving us the best quote of the week.

Speaking about Guitar Hero he said, "If it puts little plastic guitars into kids' hands and fires their imaginations, I think that's a good thing. It's harmless fun, innit."

Then he said, "I'd rather that genre of videogames than somebody getting their f***ing head chopped off with a samurai sword while getting f****d by a goblin up the arse with a laser. Do you know what I mean?"

Not really Noel. Well, kind of but we don't know what games you've been playing. We'll ask him next time we walk past him in the street or he's in the pub up the road from the office (true story).

Gallagher has previously said games desensitise kids from crime: "People say it's through violent video games and I guess that's got something to do with it. If kids are sitting up all night smoking super skunk and they become so desensitised to crime because they're playing these video games, it's really, really scary."
