Connecticut town collecting and destroying violent video games.

Lots of kids christmas presents destroyed....

I seriously question the intelligence, free thinking, and common sense of someone who genuinely believes video games and guns are the root cause of these mass murders.

Some people just go along because the media says so and they can't be wrong(easily influenced weak fools) or just so they can feel good about themselves and think they are helping(actually just making lots of kids pissed and bored while the real causes are probably ignored) or to push a anti-gun/video game agenda.

And apparently they're receiving gift cards when they destroy the games. I wonder if they give more than Gamestop does?

Sooooo what you could do is go to GameStop and buy a preowned copy of a violent game that's old and cheap around 5 bucks then cash it in for a 25$ gift card? They didn't think this through did they. I could go and buy 20 violent $5 games and get 500 bucks in gift cards? It's a triple win, your getting copies of cod burned, while making money and exploiting a stupid idea in the first place.


That link doesn't mention an exact price anywhere.


It says $25 on ign

Depends on age and maturity level of said kid and how violent said game is.

Also their standards of violent video games may not be reasonable.

People still believe that violent video games cause violence?

Yes, which is why they're doing this. Ignorant people are sad.

Now this will make a real difference. Not something pointless like funding mental health programs or parenting your children or keeping the nutjob that lives under your roof from easily accessing your firearms. 21st century has us evolving from burning books to destroying other forms of media that we don't understand.

Confession: I have jumped on the backs of many turtles in my life and used their shells to destroy other turtles stupid enough to get in my path. I learned this from video games and its been very difficult to separate games from reality.
