FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Video Games Don't Make me Violent!
Posted on Friday, September 10 2010 @ 16:29:02 Eastern

Hi my real name is Howard Hall, but most of you know me as the infamous UghRochester. As the editorial staff of GR should know, I have this “V: Violent Before I played Video Games” t-shirt. I wear this shirt proudly wherever I go. Making people understand I don’t blame video games for my actions and I tend to never will. 

There are moronic people out there at this minute testing the brainwaves of gamers to see if their mind is normal or not. Of course the results are going to be strange and weirdly because their minds are in focusing of a different matter like figuring out how to survive an endless waves of brain feasting zombies. Proving people are violent due to brainwave results is complete bullshit.
 
Psychological approach is another bologna excuse. People feeling angry and depressed are obviously getting stress from being terrible at a game. I understand anger can lead to outburst and cause people to do stupid stuff, but this is still not a result due to video games. If you’re seriously pissed because someone or something “pwned” you, then take a minute, chill out and take a couple sips of your beverage to cool off. There’s no need to be frustrated because you suck. In fact, if you end up flipping out like that viral video of that German kid, then you my friend should seek anger management and stop being an ******* blaming it on video games!
 
Children playing the “M” rated games make me laugh, why is that? First off, yes those types of games are recommended for ages 17+ by the ESRB due to graphical images, and most likely the usage of violence. The only way people under the age to purchase the M rated games are by nagging and convincing their parents to purchase the game. Most of the parents do, and most of the children feel special because they’re playing a game everyone in their community is playing.
 
When I say children, I’m talking about ages between three and twelve these children minds haven’t fully developed yet. They don’t know the consequences of their violent behavior. I blame the parents in this case since it’s their ignorant opinion to purchase the game for their child or not. You parents out there make me laugh when you purchase a violent game, and yet you’re going to blame violence based from video game content. Making violent video games illegal is a retarded idea. If you don’t want your children to play a violent game, look at the damn ESRB it’s there for a reason.
 
Like I said, I wear the shirt with pride. I’m a video game player. If I end up hurting or doing something completely outrageous, I plan to grow more balls and accept my consequences. If any of you disagree, you can kiss my blow in the cartridge ass. Those of you who agree, then thank you. Violence is caused by anger, not entertainment.
