They should make a Video Game about how Video Games cause violence.

In all seriousness though I think that Video Games make us at least Jaded to violence.

Whether you consider that good or bad, well that depends.


Have you watched someone die in real life and didn't care? If not, you only think video games have made you jaded to violence. I volunteer for a hospice and watched a man with throat cancer die when a tumor in his neck caused his jugular to hemorrhage. After playing violent video games and watching violent movies for decades I was in no way jaded to what was happening in front of me.

Games and movies make you jaded to seeing fake violence on a screen. Not the real thing.


I dunno, I hear things on the radio all the time and I'm totally not surprised.


Like that guy who killed all those children recently that has blown up gun control in politics? Yeah, I was like "Meh, that happens like every day anymore."


Of course that might not be Video Games that has jaded me to things like that. Either way, I'm jaded and I play a lot of video games. There's a correlation there if not causation.

The video game thing is just an aversion tactic to use as a scapegoat to get the industry to sell more firearms to the public

I'd rather see a video game dealing with the ignorance of the regionally challenged and the negative effect that has on the gaming industry.

Hey anyone else remember personal responsibility? What ever happened to that?

Or have we just regressed as a civilization so far that we don't feel people can be responsible for their own actions?

The original post reminds me of a game Jack Thompson dared the game community to make, and if they made it, he would donate a bunch of money to a charity that helps kids. Well, some guys got together and made that game - some "I'm OK" game where you go around and kill people in the video game industry because of violence caused by video games (exactly as Thompson wanted) - and he reneged on it.

So Penny Arcade took donations and made a massive donation in his name to a charity, and I think that's how Child's Play started.


Long story short, it's been done.


^Ditto.

I thought of that when I saw the name.
And spelling error fixed ;) The word 'reneged' .

The above post is either real or surreal.Have fun guessing.

Play Spec Ops: The Line. Not exactly the same but I guess it's kinda close.

Came in to say this.
