America should ban board games too.

Just look at how angry people get playing Monopoly. MONOPOLY! Ban it, before your kids go out and randomly tip over tables!

Gamers and movie fanatics should be given some credit. At least to the point that they can differentiate the game/movie from real life. If that line can't be drawn in an individuals mind, the person has serious problems to begin with.


Exactly. I don't play Super Mario brothers and then break into a zoo and stomp on some turtles, I don't watch Rambo and suddenly become a disillusioned soldier who mows down everyone in sight, and I don't listen to the Beatles Yellow Submarine and actually go buy an actual Yellow effing submarine.

In a White House meeting held with lawmakers on the theme of school safety, President Donald Trump offered both a direct and vague call to action against violence in media by calling out video games and movies


Well.

If you seen Deapool, and Matrix, and every other action flick.

Lots of people getting shot in them.

The anti gun movement is so bat snip whacko they don't even use real guns in their movies anymore.

They are PLASTIC.

If American (Youth) have become so desensitized to killing.

WHAT is the problem?

An object or is it something else?

How is saying we may need to limit what can be portrayed in video games once graphics get to a certain point any different than saying we may need to limit what types of guns are available to the public once they reach a certain fire rate?

In both cases your regulating Amendments based on potentialities. If it's okay to censor video games then it is also okay to place limits on guns.

No no, it's just the bat snip whacko anti-gun movement.

There's no room for logic with that one.

Mate, we are talking about a work of fiction - a movie. It only makes sense to use a fictive gun in a work of fiction.

You won't actually be shooting people with it.

The lame graphics in video games i have seen to date just don't appear real. But we will eventually be there. i'd feel far differently if a game could show me dying to my children.


Hmm, good point, very good point indeed.

However I must point out the inverse argument: letting children a way to express their dissatisfaction through a game enables them to vent their anger on a "punching bag" instead of on everyday life, and therefore approach real life with renewed reason.

A teen's mind is not so different than an adult's - they follow the same rough mechanism. Violence in the real world is caused by a sense of dissatisfaction which cannot be expressed. Giving them a way to safely express their dissatisfaction - video games - could actually be beneficial.



Yeah, totally. How in the world did kids make it through before video games? Back when most families owned firearms, and back when school shootings were far and few between. Poor kids. They're angry so lets give them all the video games they can handle.

From a boom stick.

The sound from the boom stick is not used for the primary soundtrack, lavaliere mics and special sound effects are.

Ever seen a ninja bring out his sword with a large, cool swishing sound? Doesn't happen in real life. I've owned several swords. The sound is added.

This guy wants to revive the coal industry and "do something" about violent video games...
That's what you can expect when you elect a senior citizen as president

So realism is your gripe. The sole fact that you know they’re props some how ruins everything.

It’s a shame, you seem to have become a caricature of your own views Neo.
