Don't be mad just because Ezio gives away all the dirty little secrets of the Templar's.

If it's not the progressive liberals, then it must be the progressive republicans!

I am just pleased to see that Red Cross has stopped pretending to help people and has moved on to criminalizing American citizens.

Those are called Rhinos or Neanderthals, depending on the spectrum.

The UN, REd Cross, Red Crescent....

All need to be booted out of the country and funding ended. I wonder if we can make an argument that the red cross / cresecent are terrorist groups since they both contain symbols used by religious zealots from a few hundred years ago.

Well considering our own Secretary of State once pushed to ban any game with a gun in it (Hilary.. *sigh*) she backed off a little when a guy asked her at a Q&A whether she had ever in fact even played a game in her life.. gotta hate it when someone slips past the question screener.

You evil bastard...


I once dropped a nuke on a populated city in a flight simulator game created in partnership with MS.

I think it was called F22 Lighting 2.

Great game.

But it allowed my wanton use of WMD...I must be worse than every dictator who ever did anything.... twice.




Im Old.........

There has to be some realization to the desensitizing of those that play these games for long periods of time. I see it as the amount of time playing these games goes into the same time as going to a school or work, and if those things can play into your lives, so can gaming.

If those that oppose it know the difference, do you really want to stand for everyone? There has to be an accountability, and those that are old enough, and can afford these games know that there are people with less of a mental understanding to the same, there is a way to make everyone accountable.

Peace, NRE.

This sounds like the typical video game bashing that goes on these days. That we, the dumb people of the world are too stupid to see the difference and act out the fantasy in the video games in real life.
In other words, take your guns away and strip you of your rights because some of us enjoy a good violent video game once in a while, and that makes us suspect out in the real world.
The reality is, most of the games these days are most likely developed or at least sponsored by the government for training purposes. Let's face it, if the government can give people basic training through a video game, wouldn't it save them the hassle as well as money?

Gulp.

By that logic every mafia/crime drama would be relegated to porn shops.

Its nonsense. Don't let your kids buy games that aren't rated for them. Don't buy them porno DVDs either. Theres no difference.

You are talking like everyone is a responsible parent out there, and not looking at the bigger picture which is the amount of kids that are being exposed to these games at such a young age because of irresponsible parents.

I am going to say a few things that are not going to be well received here. I would like to point out, this is coming from somebody who was completely raised on video games. In fact, I was the generation that started all the very first video games. I had the very first pong, was a master at space invaders, hung out in the pizza shops when Asteroids was the only thing available, moved on to pac man, missle command, frogger, had the first hand held football games, played, master, and conquered the original first person shooter game, had owned every version of every game system that came out throughout the generations, ran from college classes back to the dorms to play the original Street Fighter and Mortal Combat, and I have seen it all and played it all long before most of you were around. In fact, I even went to school for a while to do 3D animation for gaming. I feel for you, and I understand where you are coming from.

However, I have seen the long term results of what violent games has done to our society as a whole, especially the younger generations. To be honest, it frightens me. I stopped gaming probably about 12 years ago because it sucked the life out of me, and I didn't like where it was all headed. I was completely addicted in every aspect, and constantly drowned the world out around me through gaming. Gaming has become so acceptable, that it is OK for kids to be playing games to the level they are today. It's a type of programming, and what it is programming into kids is not good at all.

I am glad more and more people are stepping up and speaking out against it. It is destroying our youth, and it took away a good part of my life. I can't even imagine where my educational level would be today if I put all the hours I put into gaming from the time I was a little kid, into books or learning in general instead. I wouldn't be trying to do such a catch up on so much of it today in my later years. You are robbing yourself of so many things by the amount of hours you put into gaming, and you won't realize the damage you have done until it is too late.

There are a lot of things I would like to see tackled that would give our youth a lot less access to, and one of the major ones is gaming. It's not about the parents buying the right rating for the kid, it's about the parents getting off their ass from behind the TV, the computer, or whatever else it is that they are drowning life out with and spending that time on quality stuff with their kids. Allowing them to sit on the computer, Facebook, video games, movies, or anything else they continue to do so that they don't have to be bothered is the problem.

However, gaming is absolutely destroying our youth, and you won't be able to truly understand what I am saying until way later on in life, or you can see in general the impact it is having on society when you can look back at the next generation. This is a threat to you because it is something you are a part of and don't see anything wrong with it. I can tell you from personal experience of walking in your shoes for well over 25 years of gaming in my life, and then being removed from it for so long and seeing what it has done to me and to all of you, it is a very serious problem that needs to be address ASAP.

You are being deeply desensitized and you don't even have a clue how bad it is being done to you. Participating in violence on a regular basis, even though it is not real, is doing serious psychological damage to this world and you.

I wish more groups, people, and the like would step up and do something about it. Funny how people are hating on the Red Cross because they are a threat to your world, yet you have never stepped into their world and seen what they really do.

This is just my opinion is all. I already assume that it will not be well received
