Dexter follows Dexter Morgan, a forensic blood-spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department whose perfectly respectable persona hides a dark compulsion: HE IS A SERIAL KILLER MADE RESPECTABLE . He hunts down people who have escaped justice. (Questions: Who is he to decide who should be killed? Who will use his example to justify who they chose to kill in real life?)
Dexter, rated in the top four shows on television, is one of the most popular shows on SHOWTIME with a particular strong fan base among gamers. Marc Ecko of Entertainment Today announced it has entered into a production agreement with Showtime Networks to design a video game based on the Emmy and Golden Globe winning hit television series "Dexter".
When I learned of their intent to make a video game out of Dexter, I emailed Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, author of Stop Teaching Our Children To Kill, to see what he would have to say:
"The Dexter video game is truly sick. Not only have we turned a serial killer into a hero, but now the kids get to play Dexter in the video game. They are not just the passive viewer of Dexter's murders, they now actively inflict the crimes and are rewarded for it."
