I hate this discussion, because I love violent video games
So, that means I'm going to tell you the way it is.
I have played Postal2, all of the Unreal Tournament Series, Half-Life, etc.
You know what? It's just a game. You know where these games get these violent images? My guess is real life.
Let's look at Postal2 for an instant. It is funny! That's what it is, a comedy piece. Any other gamers out there that played it? If so then admit
it... you laughed atleast once.
These video games take some skill to play Unless its GTA.. I have played GTA but to be honest, I didnt like it... Mainly becuase it seemed pointless,
just running around stealing cars.
Anyway, at the same time this games get your mind thinking. Its interactive, unlike watching a movie, you get involved with the story and act the
part. They contain a lot of puzzles and stuff that you got to figure out.
Kids arent mature enough until they are at least 13-14 and maybe not even then
Whoa there... I know plenty of people in their 20's that still need to grow up. I myself am 20 years old but I consider myself mature...along with
authority figures such as my bosses and a couple of years ago my HS Guidance counselor told me that i was more mature than a lot of 20-30 year olds
that he knows. I'm not bragging but the point is, I play video games, ,the ones people are afraid of their kids getting a hold of.
If you care about your kid, turn off the game system if you don't like it, and read them a book. Talk about their day
Lol.. What a way to p*** them off
They can fry brains! I am going to 8th grade and I know kids who can't talk about anything other than video games. It must be the only thing they
I know when I was in High School, just a few years ago, video games werent that big. It was a small town school, in Hickville texas. Almost everyone,
except for me and a handful of other "nerds", played football. Now, they were obsessed. That's all they talked about was the upcoming game.
Coaches made the teachers let the football players sit infront of the classroom so that they would get better grades (supposedly)... Coaches bailed
kids out of jail without telling the kids parents, as long as they ran laps around the football field. Kid gets busted and jailed for marijuana, but
is let back into school. He's the star running back. Other kid gets caught with a can of snuff. He didnt play football, so he was expelled.. Never
allowed on school grounds again. I could go on and on about the insaneness of that **** but its a completely different topic.... and to think my dad
calls me a loser because I work a minimum wage job, yet he raises me in a town like this?!?! Anyway back on topic,
Just the same with movies, I don't rent a movie for the gore or nudity (that last part does have some exceptions).
This reminds me of a friend of mine, 21 years of age. I'll ask him if he wants to go see a movie. I think the last time I asked him was when Analyze
That came out in theatres... He asked me what it was rated. I then found out he doesnt watch anything over a PG rating!!! He's an adult for crying
outloud but his parents have him so whipped that he's afraid of a little nudity or cussing... I always tell him, I dont go see the movie because of
the nudity or cussing, I got to see it because its a darn good story.
Do you want your kids growing up to never watch some of the greatest movies like The Godfather? Or do you want him/her watching Finding Nemo (Great
movie by the way, not making fun of it)
