Re: ban video games first
it's true though

the generation this kid belongs to grew up on extremely graphic / realistic first person shooters & grand theft auto..

they don't watch T.V.

They don't have jobs..

They are "gamers"

and it's all they do... all day... every day... for YEARS!

they have become so desensitized and disconnected from reality this type of act becomes a new way of living out their video game fantasy world..

it's like the 4chan troll generation

they have serious mental issues & no one to guide them

the problem isn't weapons

the problem is this fucked up society leading our children down the path of depravity from birth

Trinity, you are 1000 percent right on. Gaming is all kids want to do anymore. Drive thru an area where there should be kids out playing, riding bicycles ect, they are absent as if all kids had been stolen. In fact they have been stolen by tv and video games. Few kids even watch tv anymore. The 60 inch in their living room is hooked to the internet an that is where they are. Parents are to blame in the end.

Re: ban video games first
how about this - if you believe video games are bad for your children - train them to use the guns in the video games. familiarize a pistol with your child/children.

Are you a parent? I am. I don't WANT my kid outside. He's safer with me doing enriching things like playing with the cats at our local animal shelter or arts and crafts at our house but video games are a whole heck of a lot safer for him than sending him out into the streets these days.

Through the Internet, we can search Google Earth on my iPad to look at the countries his ancestors come from.

I don't plop him in front of the teevee and hope for the best but I'd rather he be inside playing something innocent on the iPad than riding around on his bike these days. Sad but true.

Re: ban video games first
I've banned TV, movies, most bullshit music (99% of all music that isn't classical or jazz), and of course, video games.

My kids are 4 and they don't know any different, because they haven't been exposed to this nonsense.

I have to say, bias aside, my kids are smarter and more "alive" than most other little brats that they associate with. I realize that my kids will experience these things more and more as they get older. But I know that I let their brains develop properly in their formative years.

These things will never be banned. But you can do your part by banning them from your life, and your house.

Somewhere along the way, the notion of "sheltering" your kids became something to frown upon. How fucked is that? How stupid are you people who believe this?

Sheltering my kids is my job. It's the most important job ever.


Shelter your kids. Please...

Re: ban video games first
OP...

You can't place a single blame on video games first! It's the parents!

Parents are the gate keepers for their children's future. If they don't give a s**t about their kids, guess what, their kids won't give a s**t about their lives.

Give love to know love...

When parents let their children do whatever they want, watch whatever they want, without explaining and teaching them true right from wrong, you get what we see. Mindless, brain washed kids that don't give a s**t about anyone, or anything.

Kids are sponges. They can't be subjected at an early age, to nothing but violence (parents, movies, video games, music), without KNOWING right from wrong.

When a child isn't taught right from wrong, the true meaning of family and loving one another, but instead pure violence....what do you think will happen!?

Re: ban video games first
Ill give an overview of this thread here , and where it will go ;




People born post 1990 arguing games are fine nd have absolutely no connection to externalisation of violence

people born 1980s and before ,remember what a computer game actually is , and the variety thereof , who realise modern games are just killing simulations


it is beyond any linear or abstract logic to suggest there is no connection between violent videogames, and the youth of today accepting and performing violence

it is hyped in culture and media

its a bastard form , not like eastern martial arts whos origin is of self control and defence

it is gratuitous western violence ; first person shooters , headshots, max kills , body counts, best sniper shots , ranks , these are all elements of games now, its fucking bullshit

however it is not ALL a big conspiracy - i agree that there IS an element of this voilence being proactively used to numb the populous, but i belive the majority of violent video games exist beacause THEY SELL

MAKE WHAT SELLS

GET MONEY SURVIVE

DONT CARE ABOUT MORAL CONTENT OF PRODUCT

JUST GET MORE MONEY

BUY MORE STUFF



This is ALL a result of low society

Re: ban video games first
I've been playing video games all my life.

And never once have I had the urge to shoot anyone, let alone go on a murderous rampage.

In fact, I'm a gun owner and people have invited me to go hunting with them before, and I refused. You know why? Because I don't want to kill anything if I can avoid it, even an animal.

You have to be seriously fucked up for video games to effect you in such a way that you'd go out and visit violence on someone. And if you're that fucked up already, you'd be violent with or without the video games.

We don't need any more laws people, we don't any banned forms of expression. You ban these things, you gotta enforce it. You gonna arrest 'lil Jimmy for playing GTA? Throw the programmer who made a java game app after a ban on video games in jail? No, no, no. Less laws, not more.

Re: ban video games first
Have any of you seen COD games?
they are a joke and look like a comical experience
BATTLEFIELD 3 tries to deliver a more real experience
but still comes off comical where soldiers kill rats with
Knives LOL.

GTA games on PS2 were comical horrible graphics game
GTA of this generation is a BORING wannabe Hollywood movie
style game.

All these people blaming gaming need to realize these
home console do not deliver REAL SIMULATIONS they deliver
comical presentations of shooting a gun.

This is saying all unemployed people are subjects to be considered as mass murdering psychopaths...who could be sitting at home interacting with a graphics storyline game.

Instead of watching:

Seven

Silence of the Lambs

The Killing jar

The Dark Knight

I Saw The Devil

Blade

Underworld

Resident Evil

Dexter........

And The 24/7 News.

All listed above in graphics-imagery-audio/sound by TV has no what so ever violence sexual deviants and the worst REALITY in it.

If you are home not employed you are at home with a TV and or a game.

And that makes you a obvious person of reasonable suspicion......to commit death sentence leveled crime.

No this is only this younger generation committing crimes with:

Chains saws el-Mexico and America has seen this also when it come to a domestic issue.

Knives stone age rocks hammered out sharp will do.

Ball bats old fashioned as apple pie.

Some kind of glass beer bottle filled with fuel and a rag in it....its got a particular flare to it.

Their teeth to eat your face or genital off with spreading to other places now no just Americans.

Their gun to shoot you with every day in this world and has been every since they were invented.

Their spear to to settle a labor dispute mining gone wild.

Their machete to carry out their vigilantly justice in their own office in America to their own wife.

Their own car to drive their kids into a lake river or ocean to drown them in....or run over their estranged husband with again and again and again because if felt good and many skidding over them makes them sure the dead.

Their bath tub to drown them if if the car has a flat or they could not afford one.....take the family kids there as a good Samaritan mother to end their possible suffering from a person just like mom who drowned them.

The mattress to roast them on if they are over sexed and got with another.....but you could just rip off their scrotum before hand to make it more of a news getter.

The cliff to shove them wife and witness off Grand Father Mountain to batter, tatter and splatter them to death....for the insurance mullah.

Send in the arsonists with the tenants in their apartment trapped up on the highest kids and all burn it and them to smoking death.......for the insurance mullah.

If in military and high ranking do not use bloody violence to kill you elderly mother....starve her to death in her home...with maybe a few dried hard MC Donald's fries stuck in the crevice track along the wall.

Just to remind her of the food that was and is to far to crawl to.

Tail pipe fume them your family of course those kids to get back at mom.

Or set the gas off in the house and blow them and your self to smithereens because you know you are going to get caught being the one who killed mom.

But this still does not top the BC era...

Although it is heading that way backwards step by step whole they say it is a piece of metal or a color image or sounding tune..

While throwing the acid to save brushing their teeth or spotting their shirt....they just melt your eyes out lips and nose as well.

Crucify cats?

Sodomize to death?

While we say it is the green funk or the young punk dressed all emo...???
