Those Afghans, Iraqis and Syrians are known to do nothing but sit back and play video games all day.
Wait, do they even have electricity?
Should have known some ignorant person would have brought racism into a topic like this.
Look at the map that the black ops 2 multiplayer main menu screen shows. You can get a rough idea of how many people play black ops 2 there. Well...you'd have to find them on the map first. Also, the map clearly shows who plays this game the most.
Also yes they do have electricity. Not all areas in these countries are decrepit like the "unbiased" media shows.
How is this racism? That in itself is an ignorant statement.
Afghans (1 in 3 have electricity, therefore can't play video games, fact)
Anyone who seriously believes that Violent Video Games, or Violent Media for that matter can trigger homicidal thoughts in people is really just doing that, believing. There is ZERO evidence to suggest these claims, there is more evidence to the existence of God, the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot then evidence to this "Violent Media is bad" claim. The question isn't "did violent media make X do Y?" It's "What about this violent media did X find appealing?"
Robot Masters Capcom Should Put in the next Megaman game: Nuclear Man, Pot Man and Calculus Man
10 million copies of BO2 have been sold in North America to date on just xbox and PS3.
How many young adult males (age 10-30) are there in the US? 50 million out of the 300 million-ish population?
That implies 1 in 5 boys have played BO2. Similar numbers apply to CS, unreal, halo, battlefield, etc.
He also probably listened to a music genre shared by 10 million other fans, watched the same violent movies that brought in millions at the box office, etc.
Face it, the only thing about this guy that made him unique was that he was crazy. Only the NRA is pointing fingers at violent media. As far as I know even most right wing pundits have begun to question the saneness of allowing civilians to own assault rifles.
Also, topic title should be IF YOU DON'T WANT TO CONSTANTLY RAGE, PLAY SOMETHING ELSE
