I for one applaud Obama for starting the $10 million study on violent video games and their affects on you children, because apparently, your parents are terrible and think putting you in front of a TV to play violent games is the best way to be a parent.


If you are (or when you were) under 18, do your parents control what games you buy?
Yes, my parents carefully review every game purchase 1.78%
369
Somewhat, they're usually the ones buying them 13.62%
2825
Kind of, I have to hide games with too much violence or sex 10.64%
2206
Not really, they don't care what kind of games I play 67.68%
14036
Not at all, they play the same kinds of games I do 6.28%
1302
TOTAL VOTES 20738

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

I turned 18 in 1982, so there wasn't too much of a reason for my parents to control my purchases. It didn't start getting bad until the early 90s.

Perhaps these parents know their children well enough and trust them to play these games. I don't think you should be so judgemental TC.

But I'm from the UK so we are near on immune to this kind of hysteria.
#7GasmanOAVPosted 1/20/2013 9:35:37 AM
Parents don't want to be parents anymore. They have their own lives to live. They will let the kids do what they want and let them have what they want as long as they don't bother them. Then when the kids do something wrong the parents don't know what happened.

Guns aren't the problem and games aren't the problem. Neither one by itself has killed anyone.

Obama needs to fix the economy. When times are good people have hope. When times are tough decisions can have tragic results.

First point I agree with.

Lol. $10 million on studying violent games? What a stupid goverment. But I guess shows like CSI are okay, right? Shows that depict realistic violence and give you plenty of real world type scenarios to ponder are okay too, right?

But guns are cool though. They aren't dangerous and have nothing to do with shootings.
