Black kid kills other black kids, and nobody bats an eyelid.

White kid kills other white kids, and everybody loses their minds!

MOTHER ******* THANK YOU!!!!!!! It's not the Game Industries fault, it's the parents ******* fault for not being a good parent and letting their child become violent! If some dumb asses would learn about ESRB ratings instead of trying to make their stupid son of a bitch brat stop crying and whining, the world would be a better place for gamers, games, and game companies! If parents these days would stop being so ******* stupid and look at the rating before buying it, we'd probably never even hear of this issue! I wasn't allowed my first T game until I was 13! After that, my first M game when I was 17! My parents actually payed attention to the ESRB and I turned out non-violent!

Sorry for ranting... This issue just pisses me off so much...

I had GTA San Andreas when I was about, 8. It's not even down to games, it's down to the parents full stop. I'm sure many serial killers and murderers aren't influenced by violent video games.

I started playing T games when I was 10.
Also as stated I never turned violent.
No matter how many gore filled games I played I was the least violent kid in my town.
Maybe sometimes games aren't meant for some people.

Am I too high, or are people actually suggesting in these comments that violent video games make people violent? It has absolutely no effect. A violent person might play violent video games, but that doesn't mean the video games made him violent. Thats silly. Or absolutely ******* absurd if you want to be blunt about it.

This is when I say Im the only one of my friends who played M rated games as 12 year old and im the most calm? Heh. I agree with your rant. Dont buy kids M rated games unless they know Real Life from Games.

Made me think of something a show host said someday here. His show is mostly ''provocative'' yet very funny and it is aired at 10p.m.
Some bitch was going nuts when interviewed and said the humorist in question (Mike Ward, for reference) was a bad example for children.
To which he replied: I am not supposed to be a good example for children, here's a tip, get off your fat ass and raise your child instead of dumping him in front of the T.V. while you roll your cheap cigarettes.

I played extremely violent games as a child, I am an A and B student, and I don't do stupid violent things. The games aren't what make it happen its just the parents.

I played 18+ games from about the age 7 or 8. I still do play them.
I turned out fine. I don't have any anger problems, I've never been arrested, I've never been seriously in trouble for anything violent.

It's not video games that affect people or children.
If we are talking about people to whom violent video games are associated (such as the Columbine shooters) the problem is the person.
People will say shooting fictional characters teaches people how to shoot real people.
The thing is, normal people know that these characters are fake and there are no real consequences for our actions.

In the case of children, violence in a video game does not lead to violence in real life. If a child knows right from wrong from a young age, there is no problem.
If a child learns right from wrong from a video game, there's the problem. In which case, it's the parents' fault for not doing enough.

Still, it doesn't matter. If a new entertainment medium comes along it will be the next blame. People, the media especially, hate pointing out societal flaws, so they blame an industry in which no one in particular is targeted, just the product.
Parents also don't want to take the blame for their fault.
First it was books, then TV, then movies and no games, just wait until a shooting happens when people find some new popular hobby, that will be the next target.

The difference here is these days the games are more violent then when we were kids.If you give a kid GTA 1 and GTA 4, and compare the violence, the sexual content, and the language, you can see how much it has changed over the years, and yet the ratings are the same.
User avatar #53 to #39 - bradmanx (06/30/2013) [-]
Not really, the sexual content, yes, but that's progressed through the GTA series as a whole, it's not like it just raised up from the level in I to the way it is in IV.
User avatar #62 to #53 - VincentKing ONLINE (06/30/2013) [-]
Just saying, compare these days M or MA rated games (depending on your region) to those back in the 90's. Back then it wasn't as bad.
User avatar #69 to #62 - bradmanx (06/30/2013) [-]
That tends to happen when the tech gets better
User avatar #98 to #69 - VincentKing ONLINE (06/30/2013) [-]
which means kids are exposed to more, heightening the problem
User avatar #108 to #98 - bradmanx (07/04/2013) [-]
Yes, Ik, but generally violent media making someone violent is often the result of poor parenting, or mental instability

I didn't grow up with games that far back.

Why do we as a society when someone shoots something up, we blame everything but the psycho with the gun? MFW When someone blames games for real world violence.

I grew up on video games, violent and non violent, and I can honestly say that I've been very well as a student, especially in english class, damn runescape and rpg's taught me more than any teacher or school ever could.
User avatar #77 to #75 - Onikos (06/30/2013) [-]
i agree, especially in english class. Always found that my gaming taught me a lot of vocab words that would randomly pop up through out school.

Ive always had the belief that people who enjoy games should be educated through games, I have a hard time learning by reading, if they were to implement such a system it would be so great, but then obviously theres the problem of 13 yr old cod ***** trying to claim "hurrr i cant learn any other way i need to play cod"
User avatar #79 to #78 - Onikos (06/30/2013) [-]
it's not a bad concept though, i mean games really are very educational, when you look past their obvious content, you learn lots pertaining to life and how you -should- act.
User avatar #84 to #79 - evictedone (06/30/2013) [-]
Would it be sad to say that, by the age of 19, I have learned more morals from playing RPG games than watching and listening to my own parents?
User avatar #99 to #84 - Onikos (06/30/2013) [-]
not at all, honestly i have as well. While my parents have been great to me, they have always kinda sat back and let me do my own thing.
User avatar #107 to #99 - ilikebuttsex (07/01/2013) [-]
exact same thing for me aswell.

A term used by video gamers to describe young children who are overly hostile on video games. The name comes from them having high pitch voices because of their age. Normally found in Call Of Duty style games.

My parents wouldn't let me play M games until I was about 14. They said they were waiting to see me develop a filter to what I said, and that I was mature enough to handle it (I've never done anything remotely violent to anyone besides play football). I think if you have ****** parents that let their kids say/do whatever they want. That's when there is a problem. Parents can be so egotistical that they convince themselves there is no way they are just a terrible parent and something else must have corrupted their child. I think those individuals that are ****** up enough to go on a shooting spree (or even beat the **** out of someone for no reason) are going to do it regardless of what games they are playing. Last time I checked Rockstar hasn't made 'Mass School Murder 13'"... People of this generation just suck as people and are always looking for excuses as to why things happen... Instead of just holding the person or THEMSELVES accountable for what they have done and not letting them try and weasel their way out their own terrible decisions...

video games dont do **** stop blaming them for anything. Violance and sex is human nature.
User avatar #92 to #91 - eclecticparadigm **User deleted account** (06/30/2013) [-]
I actually wasn't referring mainly at their violence and lust. I was referring that children are swearing like sailors and parents are unhappy about it.
User avatar #104 to #92 - capricore (06/30/2013) [-]
Well....most online communities swear.
Could say we have swearing all around us.

Was quite weird having a 7 year old kid come to me and randomly say " ************ ",then continue down the street reapeating it over.
While her run down skanky looking mom was about 50 meters away with other 3-4 brats.
#94 to #92 - moghulking (06/30/2013) [-]
Yeah the swearing part I can buy but they wil learn it someday anyway. But I think it would be more effective to teach them about the swear words instead of protecting them in some bubble from the world.
User avatar #60 - baditch (06/30/2013) [-]
It's easier for a parent to divert blame to the games themselves...

than it is for them to just say no to their piece of **** kids.

I wonder, what age would you guys show your children funnyjunk?
