Sorry but if anyone thinks there may well be a connection between video games and school shootings then YOU are the one people and society in general should be worried about.


I guess he means the shooters are all connected to eachother, he doesnt mean its connected to videogames i guess.

Not yet, suspect in custody is not the one who posted the threat. They cant crack his encoding so they dont know where he posted from, no ip-adres no nothing. Dont know which school he is talking about and hes still on the loose...

press-conference later tonight.

Im a little scared cause six days from now we are having queensday and the prince is becoming king that day also, queen is stepping back. Will be millions of people out on the streets, any shooter could have a field day on the 30th, like a kid in a candy shop.

Awesome. Thats one I missed. Mod Database did remove this from their site but there are tons of places to get this mod on the web - lots of others host it a quick check found.

I'm going to have tons of fun playing this one. Does it bother me? Not at all, it's just a game. Statistics prove since first person shooter video games started getting popular around year 2000 the number of violent crimes has dropped. People are simply taking the frustrations out on the games instead of real life. This is no different than any other game out there. Might there be some quack that will go kill in real life because of this game? Sure but thats not the games fault.. its the fault of the mentally unstable person.. if the game would not have been the catalyst, it would have been something else - like all the killings we see on the nightly news. Here's an idea - ban all news of violent crimes for 20 years and see how much the crime rate drops but take away the video games, the outlet for frustration and see how much it rises.

As to the Op, No, we cant stop the next one. Anyone can snap anytime for any reason. History proves this. I do not believe these people think they are playing some real life video game. Of all the people you posted about how many of them were deemed legally insane to the point they could not distinguish reality from fantasy - I'll bet the number is Zero.

Ah ok, some sort of network of angsty teenagers using the power of da interwebz to carry out school shootings?

Not bad theory, wouldnt surprise me to be honest, the amount of whack job youngsters out there on the internet already, but you know, school shootings are not a new thing.

Actually, more than not they were insane. I am using the video game as an analogy that eventually a person has to do it in real life, like a serial killer killing pets and small animals. A rapist who may molest a family member before moving on. I am not saying it is motivation...but it could quell a thirst.

Can we stop it, no, but there are flags, ALWAYS, and we see that today in Newtown. He was bullied and beat up at the same age and same school he went on the rampage.

Why is it 99% of the time a killer is described as 'the nice kid next-door or great student no trouble' right after the fact? Because a lot of time it is just ignored or out of control with no help. No one to turn too. You saw that in Aurora..parents knew something was up and at least admitted it.

I used to make office maps where i worked and we played Unreal3 back in the day on a late shift at a software company. Today, if they found that one my computer I would be arrested for planning a workplace massacre.

Just out of curiosity what is your opinion of soldiers who ply a trade of murder for the governments they represent?

If you enlist in the military then you know what you are getting into. It is a sick and sad fact that there is war and there is death. I do not condone it and in a perfect world, which I hope we can achieve one day, there will be no war.
But human nature will not allow that and it is immature to believe. We kill our own...for sport. How many other species can you name that do that? or rape for pleasure? None.

We need to start local, in the home, and make sure the ones who are left behind are not. You cannot stop the war on terror but I can sure as hell try to stop the war in my community.

Oh for Jimminy Crickets sake of humanity. People finish his OP he is not blaming Video games~ Jebus, Mary and Joseph.

@OP

Good way of putting some pieces together. I can see you've been thinking about this a good while. Thank you for not blamming video games either.... wait.... did the threaders catch that??? (HE IS NOT BLAMMING VIDEO GAMES)

The way the numbers go together and we all know numbers don't lie
... The one conclusion you can draw is that each shooter tried to out score the next.... Good assumption imho and I hate that word assumption.... Maybe conclusion? But the pieces aren't fully connected.... Something drove all those young and older men to snap. What's that variable? As you have part of the puzzle, I would like to see where your official conclusion is derived from. SnF thank you for not wasting my time with another THE VIDEO GAMES DID IT THREAD that I love to de-rail btw.

Cheers~

Fair do's, personaly I just find it odd how people react to such violence at home, to some extent I think there is a great hypocrisy in how the news and society chooses to highlight particular events. We do not generaly create such a hullabaloo with the fact we know our governments sponsor and maintain a vast war machine where thousands of men are tasked with the single goal of killing other people and do not generaly seem to care much for the children lost in gang killings, where a great many children are willing participants.

Neither of those issues seem to draw mass societal interest and force through laws of change, but a school shooting?, well thats just too much isnt it.
