"WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior."

I know this is old, but it's back yet again. My opinion is that if playing a video game can turn you aggressive, there's something already not right upstairs.

People have been making these unfounded, uneducated claims ever since the media found out the Columbine kids played Doom. In the 50's, it was comic books, some shit I can't remember between then and the 90's, in the 90's, gangster rap and Marilyn Manson (again, thanks for fucking that up for us, Columbine), and now it's video games.

Right. But blaming games is older than Doom and Columbine. Violent games drew similar attention in the 80s when the graphics was so simple that it required fantasy of the player.

Go back to the time before video games were in every house. Remember when Dungeons and Dragons was branded as devil-worshipping, and everybody who did it just wanted to go out and get a sword and chop people in half? When I got the Basic D&D set (with my own paper route money, no less), my mother took it away because she heard on the news that I only bought it to worship the devil.

This crap just pisses me off. Makes me want to pull out my player's handbook, draw a pentagram, and call out satan's name while playing doom and listening to Manson playing backwards on my record player.

We're more than capable of answering you, we're just not doing it because you're being a cunt, and it's you specifically we don't care about, we do care about the rest of the forums.
