Does the school shooting keep you from playing?

This board, man. He just shared his thoughts and asked a question. There is zero reason to be douches about it.

And no tc, it didn't keep me from playing. I came home, hugged my son a little tighter, but then hopped on to enjoy double xp. I can see where you are coming from, and while this one hit me a little harder than some other ones, cod doesn't have that correlation for me.


^ THIS. Both are very true. No it didn't stop me personally from playing but there's no reason to be jerks to people who were turned off to it by the tragedy. Sure shooting people in CoD is really just harmless glorified laser tag, but when someone shoots a bunch of people for real it can it make one question fantasizing about shooting strangers on a game for fun (though like I said, it's more like laser tag and really is harmless).

Let people deal with a tragedy how the need to, it's not the time to get defensive about playing a stupid video game, especially when no one is saying that it's all-around bad or telling you to stop playing it.

I find the greater majority of the people on this Earth are useless so it is no concern of mine if they die. Hell I even have friends that went to Columbine when that shooting happened and yeah still not a single concern.

I don't mean to have you giving me a bunch of explanations but I'm curious about your ideals. Explain to me why you find the greater majority of the people on Earth useless, and what you're doing to avoid joining those ranks?


What he's talking about sounds like natural selection to me.


Natural selection doesn't apply here. Natural selection deals with the adaptation to survive. This has nothing to do with that, a guy just goes in and kills a bunch of kids. This is just a psychotic breakdown of a mentally ill individual.

EDIT: Also I'm just answering to what you said, none of this is directed at you. lol


The natural selection thing wasn't about the shooting. It was about no2 talking about most the people in the world being useless and doesn't need to be here. Isn't natural selection the mentality that only some people shouldn't be kept alive because ther weak and they do nothing for the world? hence, useless people? That, or I misunderstand the term natural selection :/ Either way, I think we can both agree, no2 is a very twisted person.

No offense, but that makes no sense. To simply generalize the entire human race like that is absurdly stupid. There is good and bad in EVERYBODY and I think that's what he doesn't get.

From my experience Natural Selection is the ability to adapt to environments. Someone who lives in a heavily populated region and relied on technology probably wouldn't be able to adapt to living in a jungle, thus Natural Selection would eliminate that individual. It's all about adaptation.

This topic has gotten nuts. Trying to win and argument with a crazy person is like arguing with a brick wall. We have a person here that is arguing that a class full of kindergardeners being wiped out is not a big deal. Even the means of their killing wasnt that bad, since they weren't buried alive or something along those ines.. Based on the logic this person is using one can pretty much justify any mass murder, actually can pretty much do anything and justify to themself that it is ok. Thats what I mean by a sociopath. They justify their behavior and have no feeling of empathy or right and wrong.

I'm hoping this person is not serious and is just trolling. but I have a feeling that this person really feels that way. Its sickening but there unfortunately are a lot of people that are like that.

I agree with you completely. I won't be discussing this anymore, No2 makes me sick.

Switzerland has no gun laws, yet have the lowest crime rating. It isn't the gun laws, I realize that now. It's the people.


It's because they have no military and everyone owns a gun. Think about it. Would you be as willing to commit a crime when 20 other people in your vicinity ALSO have guns and would not hesitate to put one in your head? Hmmmm....

they do have gun laws. every adult is required to own and maintain an assault rifle. that's way different than what we have here they are also a socialist republic.

Then is used either as a time marker or with a sequence of events.
Than is not related to time. Than is used in comparative statements.

I am going to close this topic with this. Several instances of entertainment releases being delayed or changed due to the event. It is not unlike when after 9/11 the Spider-Man movie was changed. I played Black Ops for a long time last night, and I am about to play it now. It is entertainment. It didn't cause this event. But it took ME a little time before I felt like playing it.

THE END. Please don't post so that I can close this. See you in the game.
