My friend lets her 10 year old play them, he sits all evening shooting people, then when he is 20 they will wonder why he is violent

Re: Adam Lanza Loved Violent pc games
why dont they ban those violent video games and why do parents let their kids play them?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2122560


The responsibility lies entirely with the parents.

As for why they don't ban them, maybe you should take a moment to look at this.

Why are all the violent video games always shooting Germans? Because they are promoted by Yids and their halfling creeps.

Re: Adam Lanza Loved Violent pc games
Yes I'm sure he did.

Most young men his age do.

But guess what?

99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999% of them don't flip out and go on a spree kill.


Stop looking for a scapegoat and accept that this young man had serious mental issues and trying to paint videogames as some kind of trigger is retarded in a world where the nightly news routinely shows more real life violence and death than every video game combined.

People are looking for a "reason" well here's your reason... he was batshit crazy.



The problem is not videogames or violent movies, easy access to guns or anything else, the problem is YOUR society allows people with serious mental issues to go ignored until they crack and crack they will without the help of violent games or any other external trigger.

Day after day of isolation and alienation is the reason this kid cracked.

How many times has this happened in the US in the last year alone?
How many times in other nations in the past year?

Violent videogames are played in every country IN THE WORLD... Many of which have plenty of guns lying around in citizens homes. Kids in Switzerland play violent videogames too... almost every home has guns... how many spree killings happened there in the last year?

It is America that consistently has such a horrifically high rate of these incidents so whatever is causing this, it sure as fuck isn't videogames.

No it is a stupid and meaningless point pushed on the world from the world of undercover gun-nuts looking to obfuscate an issue enough that the real issues are not discussed.

Japan has just as many violent video games, and so does Korea, and here in Hong Kong, they also in Japan have extremely violent cinema and all manner of violent entertainment.

They have no where near as many homicides, and not even remotely near as many mass killings, and almost zero gun crime.

The video game theory is an absolute farce.

If anything, its the ugly and zealous CULTURE you have allowed to grow in the United States unabated due to the many ideologues you have running your country.

they dont ban them because gov cannot effectively replace parents

parents usually have to feel confident that there children can distinguish between fiction and real life before they let them be entertained by it

Dynasty Warriors? LMAO! That game is based off of ancient Japan and China sword fighting. It may have pissed him off, but that game is definitely not what made him do what he did.

Re: Adam Lanza Loved Violent pc games
Adam Lanza read books too, perhaps those should be banned as well...

I hear he watched violent movies on occasion, perhaps those should be banned as well...

Perhaps he engaged in masturbation, perhaps that should be banned as well...

Perhaps he ate cheerios, perhaps that should be banned as well...

etc, etc, etc, etc, etc...

So you're telling me that if a kid spends severl thousand hours playing violent video games it has no effect on him?

Just as if a kid spends thousands of hours playing basketball, his muscles and reflexes don't respond?

You don't think that "killing" tens of thousands of thousands of "people" onscreen doesn't condition the mind to see people as targets?

You don't think that the U.S. military, in its firearms training, switched from bullseyes to silhouettes of real humanlike figures because it helps soldiers get used to the idea of shooting real people who have been turned into targets??

Come on, man. I know from your posts that you are smarter than this.

Millions and millions like violent video games. Typical media blaming everything but the most likely reasons. I've spent hours and hours heads hotting bad guys in video games, as have loads of people I know. It doesn't make you a violent person.

Just taking a wild guess here...he was on multiple mind altering/brain-distorting LEGAL pharmaceutical drugs? Anyone?

Most probably. That AND thousands of hours of video games will fuck you up right well.

Both are at issue here.

Points taken. I think also because of the restrictions of space in Asia, gamers there are more accustomed to "going inner" and leaving fantasy where fantasy should be. In America, not so much. There is something about the inner/outer tension in Americans that drives us to violence at times, I think.

It's largely cultural, what we're seeing. But Americans don't want to examine our culture; instead, we want to blame one (guns) or two (video games) or three (anti-depressive medication) elements of it.
