December 21st #osceasefire

#1TimeOfTheDarkPosted 12/18/2012 10:54:20 AM
An online movement to stop playing shooting games for 24 hours on december 21st.

“We are not blaming video games. We are simply making a statement that we as Gamers are not going to sit back and ignore the lives that were lost,” organiser and GamerFitNation Inc CEO Antwand Pearman stated.

“Instead we will embrace the families with our love and support. This starts Thursday night, Friday morning at 12am and will in Friday night, Saturday morning at 12am.”


Didn't see this here. I know a lot of this board doesn't care for shooters in the first place.

Anyway, just spreading the message, this isn't really the topic to debate violent video games.

the world ends anyway so might aswel stop playing one day earlier.

Yep, not playing shooting games will really show something.

Maybe instead of making a movement of not playing shooting games they should do something that makes a difference for victims, those with mental illness or issues relating to gun control...but yea, not playing a game for a day will help all those things.

I finally won a mod dispute. Too bad it got overturned a day after my suspension ended.

I can't believe that people are this daft and still wanna point the blame at video games. I'm gonna play a hell of a lot more shooters on that day and I won't even be proving a point myself.

"Why aren't you playing games today?"

"Oh, to remember those who were lost last week and send them our love."

"Ah....why don't you actually do something that matters, or shows those families you care? I mean, you could even sit down and write a letter."

"Nah, not playing this gun game shows it. I'm sure they will notice."

Why not wear a anti-firearms wristband? That'll make a difference!
