You can`t really get a video game that is really violent until you`re about 18, and your mind is much more able to absorb and learn things when you are much younger. When you can actually get this sh*t you`re too old to have your mind `programed` or whatever to think this violence is right. By the time you can get it you probably would know that this is entertainment, not a role model of how you should be. If your playing these games at ten or something that`s the fault of your parents (who are the ones complaining about this *gasp*).
Mhm, ONE F*CKING PERSON IN KOREA. PERSON. NOT PEOPLE.
This is a personal hot button issue for me. It started when I discovered a little game called Mortal Kombat 3 when I was 6 years old. My dad and I would play that thing for hours trying to kill each other and it was hecka fun.
Since then I have played games like Halo, GTA, Max Payne, Gears of War, and other gore-fests. I turned out fine!
This crap is all sh*t perpetuated by the media to protect children, when really they don`t need a whole lot of protection. Cmon, no "big talk" (you know what I mean" until age 16???!!! That`s messed up. Kids are gonna grow up not knowing what condoms or birth control are.
This is sh*t.
Still the website is just stupid propaganda to tell parents that your child is stupid and violent due to video games.
Hahaha, these kind of people make me laugh my ass off at humanity.
I`m citing from the MSN study this site linked to...
Obesity no longer a problem. WII FFS
I play tons of violent video games. I`m 14, and a GIRL. This is really stupid. How can violent video games affect the brain? IT CANT And now you have to be 18 or older to buy Mature rated games. I wonder who are buying these games, it`s the drating retarded mothers!Can`t anyone see on the back of a video game the game rating.How can you not see the Rating, it has M! For you slow moms going, I need to spoil my kids, since I want them to be popular, so I`m going to give them the bad games, with violent, sex, and gangs.
I play a lot of video games. And my parents know what I play. They don`t have a problem, since I`M NOT CHANGING.I still go to school, play sports, and do well with my friends.
And you mothers are NEVER going to get rid of video games, so don`t even bother with this bullpoo.
*Screw you anti-video gamers!!!*
Fact: Psychological studies have proven that, even the most casual teen gamers are affected by video games and suffer from low self esteem issues compared to their more athletic and social peers. The studies also revealed, younger gamers were more likely to become lifetime addicts and social outcasts.
*To assume is to... well you know the rest. Apparently casual gamers aren`t athletic. Therefore they have social problems. Also gamers are automatically social outcasts (Can you hear my sarcasm?). And What percent is "likely"? Because a majority of the people I`ve met played video games when they were little. They don`t today.*
Fact: Publishers exploit cute, huggable and lovable franchises such as Pokemon and Splinter Cell, in hopes of hooking more potential gamers in today`s youth. This is the same strategy practiced in the tobacco industry.
*Who says Splinter Cell is cute? This one just made me laugh*
Fact: Video games are proven to prevent proper development of social interactive skills which is needed for a happy enjoyable life. Gamers who pick up a controller very early in their lives are the most prone to life long burdens such as long term depression and sadness.
*Me and my brothers have been playing games since we first had the ability to process long term memory. We are socially fine. I have friends who play video games and they are socially fine. I know a psychiatrist who says games don`t effect social development!*
There is controversy surrounding these games as they promote fast food, mischievous behavior, and sneaking and surprising.
hahahahahahaha. omg. are they freakin serious??
Alleged violent brain on left side has gun-shaped area of activity. This proves this mothers against games is a bit fake. At least, IMO.
And moms, clue yourself in; a violent game has a visible Mature rating on the front, and has the violent descriptions on the back. If you can`t read the age level ratings, then you`re posing a strike against yourself here.
Yeah, I`m real sure that when you play violent video games your brain forms a gun-shaped area of violent activity...
What are the kids gonna do, put on their Cloak of the Bear, take their Sword of Destiny and Heroic Strike people in the real world? o_O
So stupid. You can post images, as long as the code isn`t over 40 characters. WTF is up with that?
Lol dang amateurs, I back in my prime pulled 57 hours straight with no food, Just water and occasional restroom breaks.
I need help =(
Notice how the brain heat scans turn out to be an AK-47 in the right picture?
if you didn`t pick up the fakeness right away, then I dunno what to tell you.
And we can blame the automobile industry for car accidents!!!
I think another factor is the intelligence, individuality, and gullibleness of the subject. If they are not aware enough to know that this kind of violence is only acceptable and encouraged in a video game, they`re going to see it as a window through which to solve their wordly problems. Self-control and self-awareness are probably the biggest factors.
My psychology book had an interesting story on a study done with young children. Half of a group of children watched a video where adults were playing very aggressively with a blown up clown doll. They hit it, kicked it, sat on it, etc. All the children were placed into rooms with toys. Once all the toys except the clown doll were removed, the children who saw the video all played more aggresively with the clown. If children see violence, they`re just going to repeat it.
granted, it`s a few years old, and the author may be biased, but there`s good legitimate information there.
How can anyone find this serious after looking at the brain activity chart that has an AK-47 photoshopped on the brain activity of violent game players?
Is this site fake, I`m not sure.
THERE IS AN AK-47 IN HIS BRAIN, i`ll never play agressive games ever
mavav was a class assignment lol... still a fun read tho... found out it wasnt real about a year ago, right after i used it in a research paper about violence in video games lol... got an A on the paper lol
However, they say videogames make you agressive, because kids who play a lot of violent games are agressive?I think, they fell for a logical fallacy called "The Texan Sharpshooter Fallacy", wich means, they see to events and just take it for cause and effect.They are just ignoring, that it could be the other way around.Agressive kids play a lot of violent games, because they just are agressive.Who is with me?
Wow, what a 150th post!
Apparently soccer moms make crappy programmers.(I apologise in advance to all the soccer moms that are, in fact programmers.)
I found out that 47 out of the 50 non-video game playing teens show violence at home and/or school.
6 out of the 50 video game players show violence at school and/or home.
It it wasn`t for violent videogames how would I surpress my urge to hunt and kill thing? Most like hunt people who make these sites.
(editrepostthing) But its sad that the link to the brain scans are. They took a racing game and put it against a shooter, go figure. No really, it isn`t brain surgery...
They will either rally under the site and write to it where they will be ignored, but still feel the issue is being addressed, or they will either cite it and or make sister sites that in both cases will cause them to become laughing stalks.
Feel lucky this site exists if you hate it, it`s probably one of the number one reasons why a real one like it doesn`t exist.
Also while the effect as mentioned above is great, it was not originally intended, and was a college joke.
I dont think this website is about violence or anything, but personally i felt addicted to WoW. I played around 5 hours a day (+ work, + army reserves, + school) So it really took alot of time out of me. And i was only getting worse. The only thing that stopped me was that they banned me for cheating :P.
You can teach your kids not to play video games. or not have it in the household.sincerely, a person who knows more than most adults, like you.
Are you really serious about this? You complain about the sexual and drug abuse and violence in these games. but there`s something called ESRB. The Entertainment Software Rating Board. They say what is included in the games. And they also say what age of children should be playing it. You complain but really you guys are the goddamn idiots that give their little 10 year old kids grand theft auto. These games are meant for entertainment purposes, and nothing more. No matter what you fools will do, there will be video games. and if you don`t like it, get your kids some lower rated games. think of it this way. you`re angry that your kids are awful but it`s because you`re terrible parents. nothing more. if you spent less time hitting your spouse, cheating on each other, drinking and chain smoking, we wouldn`t have this mishap. You bad parents are just looking for someone else to blame. Hey! I`ve got a great suggestion! You can teach your kids not to play video
