Thumbs down News fucking hate games .. - September 23rd 2010, 12:25 AM

Yoo am i the only one who thinks this or does anyone else agree atleast? .. News simply hate games. Its unbelivable how some countries Ban so much content that was just made for entertainment .. Excuse my spelling .. Ive been a gamer since 6 years .. Im 14 now and still sit and play Battlefield Games, Grand Theft Auto Specialy. Seriously. I can now go cut of heads in GTA San Andreas with a motherfucking katana and then go outside normaly and go .. Ahh a great day you feel me ? Well appareantly News say it Corrupts young minds Etc .. Seriously is a person dumb enough to do what a game tells him to do IN REAL LIFE. They are taking it too far. Look at germany, The gore is Permanently Banned in some games. So u accidentaly cut urself blood comes and ur like FUCK now im not normal. Does ANYONE here agree that news really take it soooo far with this bullcrap

It's more the media that hates it then just the news, and I believe it's a matter of things just not being apropriate for certain people more than them thinking that they turn people into psychotic murderers.
And fair enough, some things just aren't suitable for every one, and not to mention that you get tonnes of people that will rather sit at home on an xbox then go out and socialise with people

Oh man, the news and video games ...

I've been playing games since I was born, pretty much. Played games like Strider on the Genesis, Soul Caliber on the Dreamcast, and Halo on the Xbox since I was a little kid. I shoot people, cut their heads off, impale them on my vehicle .. ect.

Guess what?

I'm not crazy.

I can tell the difference between what's on the PC screen and what's in real life. Everyone free from some sort of mental illness can. Seeing PIXELS in a video game die is a lot different from watching a living, breathing person die. Trust me. I've watched both.

The media is just looking for something to blame, that's all. They don't want to blame the students, the parents, the school system, the society. They want to pin it on something that can't fight back. They're just dragging the game industry down with them.

Huh I was just about to make a thread about this.

Anyway, yes the media hates video games, almost as much as it hates Tabletop Games. Just the other day there was the woman on the news, an "expert" telling everyone how video games convinced her son to hang himself. Not the fact that he (litteraly) had no friends, not that he was failing school, not that his whole family looked down on him for enjoying some escapism, no it was the extra session of GTA that put him over the edge.

It's also sad because the people who want to ban games literally have no clue what they're trying to ban. You know, saying something like "killing innocent people in GTA grants "points" to the player." I mean really, do they do any research at all?

Moved to Current Events and Debates, I thought it'd be more appropriate there.

I agree...some people are confusing cause and effect when it comes to suicide/murder and video games. Some people obsessively play video games as a means of escape from their messed up lives. When GTA:IV ceases to be enough of a coping mechanism and they go postal, the police and the family see that the last thing he was doing was playing slayer on Halo 3. And they jump to conclusions...

The media doesn't hate video games, the media loves money. Video game violence is a hot topic and people like to read about it.

The issue was hotter years ago when I was your age.

Media will report on what sells. Hence why I laugh when non-American nationalities complain about American news appearing on their televisions. People are listening or reading it enough to make it worth reporting. Hell, I am willing to bet that people listen to it just so they can complain about having to hear about it.

It's like Wal-mart in America. If no one shopped at a Wal-mart, Wal-mart will close the doors. However, enough people make it worthwhile to keep the store open.

I am more against video games for the cost of them. I am someone who is trying to save money so video games aren't really an option. I do pick up my games used and I haven't had any issues with them.

Re: News fucking hate games .. - September 26th 2010, 10:58 AM

yeah, i looked this into List of banned video games ... sounds interesting to comment on. i'm not a gamer now but i used to play 7 or so hours a day as a kid, knowing the feeling.

and just to say, all kinds of medias are banned/censored. games, movies, shows. 1st comes the rating, that didn't work, right? i see 11 year olds playing bloody war games. why do they ban then? games are 1st of all, addicting, they DO corrupt minds in some way, not that you are suddenly going to kill people once you exit your playstation/ps3/xbox/pc etc. but you do become aggressive. people are violent these days, not all of them, mostly teens. you use cuss words all the time you learnt from criminal/gang games, don't you? (not just meaning the OP) teens form into gangs and fight, it all comes from TV, media and entertainment. people aren't against games just to make you mad or to tickle your temper, they just want to lower it so that players would be more nice and cultural, educated. they don't mind anything wrong nor are trying to make you do what they want.

anyways, the point... just understand medias as news, you can stop it. like wikipedia wrote:Governments have been criticized for banning games for many reasons, in that such bans violate rights, increase piracy, inhibit business opportunities, and that users can still purchase or download such games online. if you can, then no one will stop you. this just did increase piracy.

opinions are still welcomed.

Maybe it's just me, but the moment someone says "video games make you violent" or something along the lines of that, that person instantly loses any respect I might have for them.
