Ceasefire Friday in honor of Newtown

I don't believe that playing video games causes violence - it's mainly a scapegoat for larger issues.

However, I will be taking a break from Call of Duty for "Ceasefire Friday" - spend one day without playing an online shooter in honor of the Newtown victims.

As far as Black Ops 2 goes I've been in a state of "ceasefire" for about three weeks now.

Innocent people die around the world everyday from firearms etc, and putting the controller down for this tragic incident isn't going to help the fact that people blame videogames for these things. Maybe try and do something a bit more pro active like sign petitions for more controlled gun laws.

For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me... it was Tuesday.

This cease fire is moronic.

This is like the day of silence for that gay kid who was hung up on the gate, even though he was a little ***** that was murdered for drug related issues, he just happened to be gay

I'm sorry, but if you have kids, tell them how much you love them, not this idiotic form of protest/respect


this

What's it supposed to accomplish? "We don't think games cause violence but we're going to do this symbolic gesture that makes it look like we do"
