Does the school shooting keep you from playing?

The shooting didn't affect me, because I didn't know anyone involved.

this. this right here is why I have lost a lot of faith in younger generations. the "gimme gimme" generation. It's all about you and you only. like you said, if it doesn't affect you directly, you don't care. Who cares about the holocaust, genocide, evil dictators, racism, poverty, cancer, etc. As long as mommy and daddy pay all your bills, and let you sit in the basement playing your stupid games then everything is just fine. Someday there's gonna be a knock on your door. It's gonna be reality looking to collect the rent on you.

I honestly don't play Black ops 2, but seen this topic on the front page, but for the shooters I do play, it doesn't make me wanna play them for a few days thinking of how depressing that was with all those poor little kids.

But its the nature of these deaths that is so tragic.

Obama had drones sent out that killed at least 174 children in schools, at weddings, etc. Why should we weep and be distracted any more now than then?

lololpolitics


Never said we should care even more now. That event is also pretty damn tragic.

The only gun I'd feel like picking up would be the one that turns the shooter's body into a paste, or a red mist. Nobody, especially children, deserve to die like that. ESPECIALLY around the freaking holidays.

This game is pretty much the main reason this whole disaster happened.

Nope. Why should it? Twas a tragedy from an observational standpoint but I can't bring myself to give a flying fig about it. Maybe if some people I knew had died I'd feel a tinge of something.

He was joking, no one would really think that BO2 was responsible.

Its a bit disturbing that you feel nothing though, I guess its where you put your mind. Some people vividly imagine the scenario and all the pain the children and parents feel, the psychological state the gu was in when he did it, why he did it, I mean he killed his own mum its messed up stuff. I guess others just look at the numbers and stats and dont really care. Its a bit worrying tbh but none of my business.

yeah stop making assumptions about the TC and getting all pissy at him, he never implied he felt superior than anyone else, and isnt looking down on those who do the game. He isnt trying to help anyone by not playing, he simply feels turned off the game at this point in time for feeling a human emotion for such a tragic event.

Those who didnt make the same connection probably shouldnt have posted in this topic. Instead we get people asking him to be skinned alive or whatever that was...
