You CAN say the same things about movies. I'm not saying video games take sole responsibility for people doing terrible things.

News flash, I already posted that staggering number of people who play WOW. Doesn't that number alone tell you anything?. All the while there's more lives are being ruined, more slaves being created, more money for Activision Blizzard to figure more ways to recruit slaves.
I am living proof that everything you just said is bs. Ive been watching horror movies since i was a little little boy. Now i don't ever get scared easily. that's about all its done to me. Sure im into horror themed things now, I enjoy the sight of certain slaughter but that's only because its what I enjoyed as a child. My mother got me into it, i don't blame here, i thank her, because now i am a strong person mentally. It doesn't define who I am in any way shape or form. Im the most gentle and polite person you can meet, but at the same time i have a passive dark side to me that i often keep to myself, because people are intolerant of things they cannot understand. That alone proves some people need to evolve and or grow up.

This thread in highly speculative forum is also product of some gamer that thinks killing people in games are the same like watching and drawing rainbows.
There is only one thing and I have seen it here a lot of times. People are simply not honest to each other. So, you will find hundreds of COD players and maybe only 1% of them can be honest enough to admit that in COD you only learn on things like killing people and war tactics to survive.
Also, it is very unfair fo that same people to say, there are no violent games at all. So I would just take you as prison in 1 little experiment. I will give you one big monitor and scariest game I could find, and then, I will force you to play 10,000 game hours.
You can only sleep, eat and go to bathroom, all other time you must have headphones, and watch at horror from game.
Now after this experiment, what will that person become?
People want to believe that if something is bad for people, that is not bad for them.
For any reason people think that they are strong and that games dont bother them. People here that reply and say games are not bad at all, you are weak minded, yes you are call me a troll, thats just your way of solving things.
Weak minded is if you cant be honest and say that violent games arent good.
And to admin who throw this thread to skunk, I just wish 10,000 hours of horror movies. Watch them with your children and your parents.
One bottom line, just because YOU THINK you are perfect, and are gamer that didnt kill anyone and have normal life, that dont means that violent games are good, or that you learn good things from it.
Gzz people, just be honest.
It is the same thing watching movie where you kill people, it is the same thing to read book where you kill people, it is the same thing to play video games where you people ----- THEY HARM you even if you didn't kill anyone in your life.
Skunk world? Yeah right, in your dreams admin. Im sick of that type of admins. They are stupid, but are holding power in its hands, and also they thing they are very intelligent and informed. No man, you are not, you are selfish liar.
Like McDonnalds, just because you like it, that don't mean it is healthy for you.edit on 2-7-2011 by ferumbra because: (no reason given)

It's just people doing what they enjoy doing, that's the point isn't it? Blizzard et al are all providing a service that there is demand for. As long as people want it they'll provide it. That's how our society works.
I will live my life enjoying what I enjoy doing not what you or anyone else thinks I should be doing
Obviously you enjoy looking down upon people and calling them cattle because they don't share your screwed up view on life, so you keep doing that if it makes you happy.
