Thank You for Gaming

Yeah, this is a repost, sorry. If I remembered the user I got this from, I'd give him credit, but I forgot. A discussion about game ratings reminded me of this, and I felt the need to post it.

Video games don't make psycho killers.

Lag, however, is another story entirely...

The same situation can be applied to the new restrictions on porn in the UK.

My Dad bought me Vice City when I was 10 on the condition that I only played it when my Mum wasn't there

Yeah, buy things that make violence seem cool so your kids will laugh as they read/watch horrific tragedies on the internet and encourage others to commit suicide. Get them lots of profane music and movies and games so they will have filthy vile language which will substitute for more accurate, decent and useful language. Encourage their irreverence because respect and humility are a drag. Fill your kids head simultaneously with the idea that we know everything and at the same time that we know nothing and that any kind of mistake or crime is 'ok' except going against whatever cultural fads and paradigms the tv sets forth. Applaud them when they rebel against you and make your life miserable, but then you are no more mature, so compete with them and end up in either outright hatred, an awkward tolerance or some kind of incestuous thing.

Supergood parenting man, you bet.

the idea is to do your job as a parent well enough that they can play violent games without the negative messages leaving an impact on your child. this post clearly went straight over your head...

I started playing M games when I was about 10 and I've turned out fine.



Now shut up and help me ditch this hooker body in the lake.

MFW I played my first violent/M-rated video game when I was 6 years old.

Lo and behold, ************* , Goldeneye 007 did not make me grow up wanting to shoot people.

My parents allowed me to enjoy video games of all ratings not because they were bad parents but because they relished seeing me happy and quiet. I fondly remember a time when I was three/four and my mother would put in all of the cheats for gta one/two so I could basically kill the 						****					 out of everyone under no consequences. Violence is in us, no matter what. Whether I shoot someone in the head or not is no more the game's fault than the fact that violence is in us. The reason we like violent games is because it completes our instinct without no modern societal consequences.   
TL;DR The reason we like violence in games is because violence is in us from birth and the game allows us to be violent in an acceptable manner.

Been playing violent video games since i was 6. first ones were Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct etc etc...Turned out great! It really does boil down to the parents. Even I had a violent temper ( bullied in elementary school, finally snapped in 5th grade) still managed to become a star athlete in middle and high school, graduated from JROTC at the top of my class in high school, college degree...Honestly, I think a lil bit of violence balances us out...if done right...just a thought

It really puzzles me how this is not common sense. And it really bugs me how some parents buy their kids M rated games and then they complain that they're too violent for children.

Thank you for Smoking is what this is from. Really good movie. The original argument was about cigarettes.
