If guns dissapeared from video games... What would you do?

the video game industry would be so much more creative again like the 80's and early 90's.


yeah, that wonderfully original era where every other game was a side scrolling platformer.

Agree that you don't need guns in TR though.



I couldn't agree more.

I already play plenty of games without guns, so... nothing. I just play those more.

If guns were banned from videogames I'd use it as a case study to show how the death rate of virtual NPCs has not changed and thus guns are not the problem. Then I'd use that to draw direct real world comparisons as evidence that removing guns from society will not lower the rate of violent crimes.

Nice.

Then maybe the beat em up genre could make a triumphant return!


EXACTLY! More fighting games; my favorite genre.

If guns were removed I'd be upset because I'm a 100 percent pro 1st and 2nd amendment Libertarian US citizen. Ironically, I'm also a pacifist who believes that "violence breeds violence" but will defend myself and loved ones to the death. I'm also an owner of over more than a single firearm.

the problem is tho that the FPS these days dont even try to be different from each other

there are very few fps that dont pick atleast 2 of these

1.sprint button where the character puts the gun down
2.regenerating health
3.iron sights
4.2 weapon limit
5.expandable crosshair
6.set in the military


sure there where alot of side scrollers in the 80s-early 90s....but aside from having a jump button and some of them a shooting button....most of them played differently (with few exceptions)

And I could quite easily generate a list of six items and say that very sidescrollers in the 80s-early 90s didn't pick two of. Your point is completely moot.

that would not prove whether guns are the problem... it would prove that video games are not
