No matter your level of commitment to the world of gaming, be it the occasional play or an 8-hour binge of Fallout 4 on your weekend (try to remember to eat), you've probably heard someone pop off with some noise about the pitfalls of gaming. You know and I know that all good things are fine in moderation (seriously, you need to remember to eat), but that doesn't seem to slow the fearmongering philistines from hating on your game experience. Spoiler alert: they're wrong.

In the name of myth-busting the nice folks at Gameranx rounded up the most outlandish, contrived, and/or willfully misleading claims (we're looking at you, Pat Robertson) that have been made in the name of the War on Gaming. Can we talk real quick about the time that Glenn Beck came after Watch Dogs by claiming it turned players into low key hackers?

"This game is teaching you to hack into whatever is docked in your bedroom," Beck infamously claimed in 2014. "What the heck is wrong with us? What are we thinking? We are inviting this into our home and our lives." What indeed, Glenn. If playing Watch Dogs can turn you into a legit hacker then I have a virtual bridge I'd like to sell you.

I don't want to ruin all the fun of this hater highlight real, so I'll let you check out the rest in the video above.
