Well considering I'll be driving me and my wife to Missouri for Christmas that day, I think I will participate. On a serious note, it's honorable to do anything in your power to honor those hurt by this tragedy. Even something this simple, says so much.


What does it say? Exactly what does it say?

"I'm taking a break because a guy who i assume to mentally unstable committed a terrible crime and is now dead."

That shows respect. That shows honor.




No, it shows nothing. It shows you think you will somehow change the world with this insignificant gesture that literally means nothing. Bravo. I hope it makes you sleep better at night,.

A guy in China slaughtered 23 school children with a knife, with his motive being something like "worlds going to end on the 21st anyway!".

But since it doesn't involve America or firearms, and couldn't be blamed on CoD or any other video games parents might not have heard of (like Assassin's Creed), it only got a small, teensy three line section right after a two page spread on an article on how CoD influenced this guy to kill his mother and these children and teachers.

As harsh as I'm going to sound, I simply don't care.

I'm sorry for those families loss, but this has nothing to do with me.


Exactly my thoughts. I'm not going to make an impact on anybody whether I play or not.

so if i stop enjoying my weekend hobby for an evening this week 20 children are gonna come back to life? That's amazing, count me in! /sarcasm

the sad part is, if the victims of the massacre would all come back to life if everyone stopped playing Call of Duty for even a half hour it wouldnt happen. Not just because people would keep playing, but also because Activision wouldnt take it offline.

Way too much hate for this gesture. After the Newtown massacre, I could not play Black Ops 2 that day because I just didn't have the stomach to play ANY shooting games (I played Arkham City instead).

If anyone took the time to red the article, the guy said that sending donations to the families affected would be great. Quit being a douche to TC and those who wish to participate. YOU arent going to change their minds on the issue. If they want to participate, then they can. However, acting like a bunch of pricks because they choose to do so is unnecessary.

If by "slaughtered" you mean "didn't kill any", then yeah, that happened

Maybe I over-exaggerated, but it said he went on a knifing spree and stabbed an old woman, but didn't mention if any died or if they all survived.
