No video game itself has ever killed anyone!

I am being literal here. Has a video game ever been used as a weapon to kill someone? I doubt it for many reasons.

1. Discs are fragile and if you did try to kill someone with one, it would most likely break. Unless you shove a broken shard of it through a artery in a very lucky stabbing area I highly doubt you could ever kill anyone with a disc.

2. Cartridges are terrible blunt weapons... unless if it is a NeoGeo huge cartridge. But I think that would only cause a damn bad goose egg on your head before breaking apart.

3. Harddrives. Okay... see 2 above for reasoning.

No video game I doubt has ever actually killed anyone. BUT! I didn't classify video game SYSTEMS.

The Gamecube is the most dangerous one of the video game systems. the controllers are hard and tough just like the system. A grizzly bear would have a hard time breaking one. I do think a Gamecube could be used as a weapon. but most other game systems other than the original fat gameboy (which was more of a plastic brick of doom.) All other video game systems really aren't that heavy and durable.

So. To be quite honest. I don't get why people are saying video games are killing people. It would be to damn hard and you can just make a sharp pointy stick from a damn tree outside if you really were that damn crazy. Just being honestly legitimate here. I doubt video games have ever killed anyone.

Just my 2 cents about the whole thing. That is all.

People need to realize that games are art. Seriously, it's been proven over and over again. I think it's about time to people to man up and finally say this.

The Gamecube has a handle. I'm pretty sure Nintendo intended it to be used as a weapon.

Hell, it even comes equipped with a handle.



Also, it is possible that if someone had epilepsy, that a game could induce a bad enough epileptic seizure that it could lead to death.

There are a number of situations where things were banned because of inducing seizures, including at least 1 episode of Pokemon that was banned in the US due to it doing just that when it aired in Japan.
