This jackass must be a goddamned hoot playing Cards Against Humanity. Actually, you know... people like him are the ideal players to play that game against because their outrage is predictable and outrageously fun to provoke, so I take that back.

It's most bizarre to picture any of them trying to work any kind of construction sort of work during their teenage years. Something I think is important for boys to play at when they're transitioning into men. I'd say they'd get laughed right off the jobsite, but they'd cry themself off it first (I've actually seen this happen now that I think about it, from my old pinball shop).

Feminists make me hate feminism more than a game ever could. Anti-racists make me hate anti-racists more than a game ever could.

They are destroying themselves with their own outrage and most of the world sees them as toddlers at this point, too bad they're coddled by the toddlers that run the mainstream media.

That's not an SJW, that's an idiot. You can tell by the way he is.

Games are a form of art - not all games mind you, before someone who thinks he's snarky comes in and asks for the artistic meaning of candy crush, but games are a medium for story telling. They can deliver all the same messages movies and books do but with even more poignance because they're interactive.

Anybody, and I mean anybody who thinks they have a right to tell people what stories they can or can't tell or how they can or can't tell them should be disregarded as a idiot.

Haha what a goon


I've been an avid gamer most of my life and I can only think of a few genres I can't play. I've played the most gruesome, the scariest and the most realistic games around and like many gamers I like a bit of role play and freedom in my games.

A lot of gamers have went whore hunting on GTA or kamikaze attacked US warships on numerous games depicting WWII, heck a call of duty game once had me interrogating a man with a mouthful of glass with my fist. Yet I have never done any of those things and I imagine very few gamers do, I imagine those tempted to do what they saw in a game could be easily influenced by anything in life and I also imagine they might have something mentally wrong with them.

Apart from the nasty things I've done in games I've also done good things especially when a game is detailed. One game in particular Sid Meiers Civilization franchise, I've led nations to triumph with peace and trade. Role playing doesn't have to be nasty... That being said I've also nuked the world as Gandhi though why not?

Nah, games are just an entertainment platform and just like all entertainment the possibility to educate exists, does this flaming idiot have any idea how many people have got into professions due to the influence of games? Professions like history, astronomy and construction... I dare say the positive influence outweighs the negative tenfold and more.

One of the Deus Ex designers pointed the same thing, even by today's standards games are still trying to be considered a form of art when compared to other medias or at least to be on the same exact level.

People who don't get videos games have been trying to censor them forever. This is nothing new and blaming SJW's is silly. If you think the controversy over this game is bad, then where were you for the controversies around Mortal Kombat or Grand Theft Auto?

Continuing this line of reasoning. The fun police have been trying to eat into artistic hobbies forever. Before videos games it was Heavy Metal music. Before that it was Rock and Roll music. Before that it was Television.

Did you know that the Fun Police even once considered the waltz to be immoral?


But the biggest sources of bashing came from moralists - clergy, poets, and others who want decency. Many Catholic communities, even dioceses, barred couples from dancing so close in triple time when it became popular during the late 18th century and became widespread.


So seriously, don't use this controversy to rail against SJW's. It's dumb. Let's all make fun of the fun police together since it is a timeless tradition of sticks-in-the-mud trying to ruin fun times for everyone else.

Those were always parents. Now its the kids crying like the Babality Butthurt Brigade (where they take the fight into the guts of the gaming community / environments themselves). And that's what you fight for all the time in here is their viewpoint. Thanks for that!

If half the time you fight for their viewpoints, the other half (like when they go too far down batsh#t crazy world) you dont say anything, while never going on the record saying they need to grow a pair, get a clue, etc, that leaves you in their camp. The left better start scrubbing the SJW poop off the decks, because they're sinking your ship, so those of you who effectively condone their behavior deserve to drown with them and their crybaby driven Nu-Nazi agenda.

I don't care if they are complaining. Nor do I care WHO is complaining. At no point am I making any distinction on WHO the fun police are. So stop interjecting your argument into my words. Fun police are just that, you don't have to be an old person to not have a sense of wonder and fun. They certainly have the right to complain, but I have the right to make fun of them for doing it. Notice I never said I'm trying to stop them from complaining? Nah. Of course you didn't. You were too busy trying to interject your partisan nonsense to me.

I'm not even sure what the hell you are talking about here. Please keep your conservative crazy to yourself. I'm trying to have a rational conversation with people.

Living in a patriarchal society, it is nearly impossible to criticize a male-dominated past-time. The conventional wisdom is that "boys will be boys" and as such, they like violent things like video games, sports, and pornography.

The Google results for "do video games cause violent behavior" is a massive cluster-f--k. The first result cites a study that says "no", the second result says "yes", the third result says "no", the fourth result says "yes". People have their own pre-conceived ideas of what they think is happening, and will bookmark the sites that support their views, and criticize the sites that don't. This type of bias really holds a person back from looking objectively at both sides of the argument, especially if it involves something they do personally. No one likes to admit they have been doing something wrong for years, so they cling to evidence that validates their behavior. This helps people feel like they are not complete a--holes.

I personally believe violence in media, which can be presented as video games, movies, television shows, pornography, DO impact an individuals behavior. Of course it wont incite extreme changes like rape and shooting, but it can subtly influence you. source

If media didn't influence, then why do companies spend billions of dollars on advertisements? Clearly, images on screens DO impact people, even if it is slight. But everyone loves to think "oh, media doesn't influence ME, I'm different! I'm immune!", But you aren't immune. No one is.

For those who like violence in media/games, ask yourself. Why do you find the blood, gore, and the deaths of others entertaining? Why do you like watching those kinds of things? Because it isn't "real"? Well, the images look pretty darn real to me. Why do you like to fantasize about hurting others?

Because humans are naturaly violent, its in our genes, using games for apease that violence is only healthy in my opinion, be it a videogame, or sports. It's the best way to do instead of going out and punch everyone you see or want to hate, no? Our primal ancestors thrived on violence for survival, that is us, either you perceive it or not, its in you. How you deal it, its what counts.


"Living in a patriarchal society, it is nearly impossible to criticize a male-dominated past-time. The conventional wisdom is that "boys will be boys" and as such, they like violent things like video games, sports, and pornography. "

Oh dont cry me a river please, more and more women are gaining ground in the upper echelons of society, does it take time? yes it does, but its happening, and some with good results. Women are good at games, some enjoy violent games, they are good at sports, lots of champions, and some actresses are proud of the pornography they do, thats called freedom.

This isn't mere "complaining", this is a continuation of Gamergate, which is an aspect of the Orwellian PC thought control agenda that is the staple of the "left" these days.

I know if I had always been apart of the "left" and then woooosh over the past maybe 5 years years 'my' entire field were being warped into this entirely bigoted stuff I'd be in here everyday fighting to bring sense back to the matter, distance myself and other MODERATES from this growing majority fringe minded bigoted bullies.

And here I was treating you as a moderate who might have some hope, yet you sure do seem triggered.

These aren't mere 'complainers', this isn't worried parents, these arent actual cops busting up underage drinking parties, these are the kids now doing the crying, where goosestep bullying game scenes is their game. They could just not play the games they dont identify with, instead they're out trying to ruin everybody elses fun.

Sure. Whatever you say guy. I suggest you step away from the rabbit hole though. You appear to be in too deep.

Let's explore some parts of reality that you are trying to ignore to push your crazy, partisan shtick. First. Nothing these cry babies will do is going to stop this game from being released. Second. Nothing they say will be able to hinder your enjoyment of the game. Three. It's a free country; they can say anything they want. So deal with it already!

Sheesh, you sound like the crybaby to me.

You're making this is extra fun for me because I'm not conservative / Republican / partisan / whatever.

Your side is going off the hook Orwellian, so either help bring sense back to your scene, or be part of the problem, that's your right!

Considering SJW's are proving themselves to be even more violent than NeoNazi's, while a yuge part of their thing is obsessing over inventing new genders & sexualities to identify with and get off to (including cartoons), no "progress" to be found there.
