The War Against Video GamesJun 01, 2021
gamescause violence, the underlying fear expressed by parents during public hearings that
gameslead to violence, gun violence has more to do with video game weapons than real ones, right? Will they turn violent just by playing Grand Auto Robo and Halo? In these games, there has been a lot of research showing a link between violent video games and aggression. Violent video games increase aggressive behavior. To me, these video games are murder simulators. game boy that escalated fast i mean it really got out of control fast it's a tale as old as time a new fad or idea catches on in societies all over the world many people approve of it and many others condemn it from the start beginning of the century when Christianity began to emerge and the Roman empire banned this new religion that they feared or in the fourth century when Aristotle affirmed that the earth was round b But his theory was still opposed by people who believed that it was flat.
The same thing happened when newspapers started to become popular and were accused of ruining social interaction just like the smartphones and mobile devices we have today. always something in this world of ours that is destroying the very fabric of society centuries ago it was the pamphleteers who were scolded for dragging society down in the 50s it was comic books and in the 60s it was the beatles and in an audience a so-called forensic scientist said that a comic promotes sadistic fantasies to children that the comic was superman to try to blame shakespeare and the violence in shakespeare and the violence and art uh for the violence that happens in the real world is something that has been tried for years and it's always wrong Whenever a new form of media emerges that the older generations in particular don't use and understand, it's very, very common for that new media to be blamed. a variety of social ills it's the same old song and dance you know rock and roll and all you want to choose over the years and now in the modern age the new fad that has faced opposition for the last 40 years are video games.
There has been an enormous amount of reports, articles, debates and research on the correlation between video games and negative consequences in real life. The keywords, violent video games are usually at the forefront of these reports. Some of them will make you believe that playing Grand Theft Auto will make you want to steal a car or watchdogs teach players how to hack tablets and spy on people in their own homes this game is teaching people how to hack that in what whether it's docked in your bedroom some articles claim there really is no problem but if you've ever read a darwin awards book you know there are a lot of dumb people in this world who stupidly die or kill people because they're stupid you know I don't think video games make people do stupid things, but sometimes they make stupid people do stupid things.
I've gone through tons of different articles, videos, and research on the subject both for and against violent and violent video games. both sides, no matter the source, always express themselves differently but with the same message, video games are responsible for the agi Real life ration and video games are not responsible with such massive coverage and in-depth research on the subject. war against games the graphics are so good this attack is creepy realistic essentially be a terrorist and kill people for hours playing violent video games like doom cold blooded murder is making mortal kombat the most popular video game ever waged With a full-scale battle between the video game industry and its opponents, it's hard to think of anything that has changed as quickly and rapidly as the video game medium, other than the technology itself. g from something as simple as two rectangles hitting a square to a full interactive movie that can feel as real as any hollywood production with characters that make you care a universe you can feel immersed in and a fun factor you can share with your friends and family as technology has improved so has the level of realism that video games create but there is something within the lifespan of games that hasn't changed something beyond the graphics, the controller , the platform on which it is played or the players who buy it, which has not changed. it's the war against them while gaming in this 40 year period has become a legitimate art form and a business employing thousands of people the same old tired arguments are used to vilify video games and the people who play them The examples are countless.
From the days of pinball and pong machines in the 1970s to the current era of Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, and many other franchises, these folks, we'll call them anti-gamers, have kept winning a constant war against video games that they believe simulate and promote murder, rape, robbery and other despicable crimes. In 1976, an arcade game called Death Race was criticized by the media for having the player run over gremlins that apparently looked like stick figures that could resemble real people. If you could somehow see this nondescript series of pixels as a human being in hindsight, this death race could be seen as the progenitor of the Grand Theft Auto series in the early 1980s.
Ronnie Lamb sought legislation that would control the proximity of which an arcade could be created around schools a legal restraining order against video games in 1992 the original mortal kombat was released being one of the first highly publicized games to depict blood in gore to such an extent that it sparked a Massive outrage in the media that led to the creation of the ESRB in the United States and various other gaming rating systems around the world, the entertainment software rating board is a companion and whose sole purpose is to regulate and assign ratings. to video games so that people who buy the games know what kind of content they will see in It is important to note that video games have been attacked by a metric ton of gun enthusiast groups. and the nra feminists sjws religious popular pastors and christian leaders the criticism has come from the us government and probably from some european countries and on down and from careful or paranoid parents and of course the media conglomerate video games have been so controversial cases and laws have gone so far as to make it to the supreme court these are the ones we will see except feminists and sjws that will be its own video so we take a look at a brief history of the war on video games in the past and there are so many examples that it's unrealistic to list them all in one video, but now let's look at the real arguments and people who tried to condemn video games. things are taking a lot of people to hell ah religion the great opposition of almost every scientific or artistic advancement in the last 2000 years just as they took a stand against the round earth theory also some religious leaders take a stand against it from video games there are young girls in this church beautiful beautiful beautiful young girls and you know why they can't get a date because that spirit got a hold of the young men and then cursed the xbox in jesus name oh my god that's just ridiculous and don't even get me started on the xbox voice remote for your tv.
There are many people who look to religion for advice and guidance about their lives to hopefully lead them to a better path, but would you believe that in recent years people have looked to the bible for answers about video games says i was wondering in the current world of video games if there is any idea of this in the bible what does the bible say about video games? and people on this planet who searched for video game advice from the fucking bible now while this video and channel has everything disabled the information it gives is actually not bad it basically says if you are addicted to video games and if they are harmful to your health work education or relationships then it would be best to avoid them and if video games don't cause problems with those areas of your life then you're probably fine with playing them now, we can't outright say that video games are a sin because the bible doesn't talk about video games, it was written long before video games however this next man is far less reasonable and sets up an ultimatum that would make obi-wan cringe if you were playing a video game where that video game contains things that are sinful then that's wrong it sounds like it all the gears in this guy's head were working at full speed to be able to articulate this basic sentence in that video game it contains things that are sinful now let's turn this on boy Is logic against it if you're reading a book that contains things that are sinful then that's wrong.
This man probably doesn't even know that there are video games based on the Bible, but we'll just gloss over the animal abuse in Super Noah. ark 3d this smartly dressed gentleman is looking to prove that video games are a cause of violent crime let's hear what he has to say ok first of all john god uh god understands violence ok you could have picked one better or even relevant opening statement but go ahead your son jesus christ was nailed uh to a tree uh for our sins and died for our sins and god raised him up god understands uh violence is ok as much as i would like to respond to the absurdity of this statement and the lack of relevance it has to the topic, I'm just going to say that religion, any religion has absolutely no authority in the video game industry, none, but we can certainly tax them, John, we can tax violence, why can't we don't we try to do it? cigarettes uh alcohol why not want to tax violence properly because taxing addictive substances that are known to cause cancer and are two of the biggest preventable causes of death in the US is exactly the same as taxing a video game in the what do you shoot people?
Logic from a religious fanatic, but this is the most important statement you make, listen: I've had guns all my life, my father gave me my first gun when I was nine, now I'm far from criticizing the cultural norms of our beautiful confederate. rednecks but since you seriously argued that giving a nine year old a violent video game is more harmful than giving them a physical firearm everyone I grew up with had guns but we don't shoot people yeah you didn't go around shooting people people because you weren't crazy, just as most people who play violent video games don't go around shooting people because they aren't crazy and their parents didn't give them a gun at nine years old.
Most Christians who talk about video games are outright negative, but there are a couple like this guy, Pastor Bob, who actually have interesting and important things to say on the subject and I think if we follow the things that everyone told us that Christians should or should. we wouldn't be exhausted and paralyzed you know some things you really have to decide for yourself and this is one of those kinds of decisions that the unreasonable ones advocate blind restraint while the more compassionate Christians say it's up to you and I think that's more important this channel right here is probably the worst ever 10 facts about hell they are not telling you 10 facts about the mark of the beast satan doesn't want you to know that someone should check the bible and see if clickbait is a sin because if it is so this guy is going to get burned if we set our mind on things that are ungodly, that are worldly, that are sinful, they will have a negative impact on our character and I think that is a plan of the devil wants to bombard us with violence so that we are so numb that when people hear the gospel it has little effect on them the devil wants to numb us well what about those games where you really know Do you want to kill the devil or something?
The evil forces I mean it's a game like Doom so bad for having all the satanist imagery within these video games it's actually the devil and the demons it's they are their influences there their presence is there but you I can't sing with the natural eye friend we're killing all that's a good thing anyway we're getting ready to kill demons when the rapture comes who says satan won't make a move huh the most ironic part of these christians who are against violent video games It is that they talk about how harmful violence is but at the same time they wear a necklace of a man nailed to a cross they preach the bible but fail to make the connection that violence can be a source of learning it is a tool we ed by storytellers and the same ones who wrote the bible I mean is the story of david and goliath detrimental to society because he cut off the head of goliath with the crucifixion of jesus hadbeen a source of powerful imagery if he had just been buried alive we would all wear earth necklaces instead of the cross.
My point is that you can't just condemn any violent medium because it contains violence, especially if you use religious texts as a source and then ignore violence within your own beliefs, teachings, or religion. Now what? these religious people seem unable to understand it is the separation of the church the separation of fantasy from reality and to sum up this religious section i found the perfect comment i am a christian and i play video games like battlefield and grand theft auto but i dont let it affect me because it is a video game i don't really play video games i don't understand video games games i have never played a video game i hate to tell you what is w What are kids?
I don't know anything about the silly game. I don't do this kind of thing. If there is one thing that discredits most anti-gamers and their arguments against games it is two things: their inability to understand the difference between fantasy and reality and their lack of experience with video games makes them seem severely out of touch. these games rewire your brain. New stuff like Bill O'Reilly, who can't even be bothered to memorize a three-word title that is thrown into every discussion of violent video games, will they turn violent just from playing Grand Auto Theft Grand Auto Theft Grand Auto Theft Grand Order? it's even the name of a crime guy come on a lot of these people try to pass themselves off as experts in the field but anyone who actually plays video games can see through their facade like this guy here so if you're out like hitting mushrooms and like going super big and playing super mario brothers who have ever used that kind of terminology when referring to a mario game none other than all those who have actually played it many times these people sound uneducated they talk to the ignorant masses who don't play or understand video games and form their own circle of ignorance but gamers will know right away they are full of if someone watching is not a gaming fan and if so rude i want to point out that gaming can do a lot of things that aren't murder there's the sims there's minecraft that's all i can think of in my head right now is this guy just out of a video or is he really a gamer your?
I honestly can't think of any other video game that doesn't contain murder besides Minecraft and the Sims. What about almost every sports game ever created? a game that has murder in it what about guitar hero rock band all those rhythm games instantly this guy has lost all credibility because he seems out of touch usually we all seek advice on things from people who we think know what they're talking about like The source needs to be credible for us to even consider believing its validity, but even if someone has the credibility, they can still argue, it's easy to understand why players get so outraged when they see these people acting like they know what they're talking about. because to them, they're just trivializing and generalizing gaming culture.
A large portion of the anti-gamers are probably people who grew up in the '70s and '80s and obviously don't have any personal experience with gaming or gaming culture, but for some reason. Everyone thinks they're an authority on the subject and their thoughts are as important as this idiot who's not even sure if video games have a rating system and I think there's a warning in a lot of these games about what's there just for adult content. as a friend have you ever bothered to look at a game cover art or go to a store and talk to people or a 30 second google search before appearing on the news and start spouting your ignorance while on the On the other hand, in some of these videos, the people we see advocating for video games are either in an arcade with their kids or they're talking like they really know what they're talking about. it came every time there was a new medium people who didn't have the experience that you have of playing with them as they got older don't really know what to do with them so they find them confusing and they find them a bit alienating when people, when they came out the novel, not everyone could read a book, so they didn't have, they weren't literate, so they couldn't fully understand it in the same way that not everyone can physically use a controller, so they have a literacy problem , so they can't directly interact with the medium, so they can't really understand it.
I'm not going to claim that I'm a psychology expert because I'm not, but you get these psychology experts and I don't think they've ever played any of these video games and they're We're sitting there telling ourselves we tell the world what they say that video games they will make people do or not new and it seems that everything is backwards. People fear what they don't understand and hate what they can't conquer, and it's mostly these people. who don't understand video games or video game culture who feel so empowered to speak out against them the bottom line parents wonder if kids can separate fantasy from reality the second piece of this puzzle is knowing and understanding the separation of reality from fantasy and a lot of these news reports and glenn beck's stupid ramblings claim that games like call of duty battlefield and others have trained people how to shoot and be assassin but i ask everyone those watching this right now who has ever used a firearm before the shooting game you played that perfectly simulated what it is like to shoot a firearm a game that perfectly simulated the recoil of a handgun or rifle assault call of duty teaches you to run with fire arm does a controller hold as much weight as a shotgun and for the older nes folks who might be looking was hunting ducks a game go that teaches you how to shoot plates out of the sky of course not because it's just games that do it?
You can't represent reality exactly as it is, you can't use a pair of nunchucks in a video game and then buy a pair of nunchucks and do some crazy Bruce Lee thing the same way you can't shoot a gun in a game and instantly buy a gun and find out how it works right away so the argument that shooting games train people and kids to be killers is utter nonsense in fact it's nonsense in general now let's take a second to see how out of touch you are this guy here. So what he's going to do is open the door and knock the guy out?
Yeah, it's fun to participate in some mayhem, I don't know, huh in New York, what are you running to? Did you just remember that guy he is? that guy, how did he get that guy? that's not what I threw a car, no, he wa It's like wandering on the highway, so you ran over that guy for fun, look, there's blood all over the front, or is this a fake reaction to simulate the shock of the ignorant grandparents watching the show or this is a grown man. that he has been protected all his life from him he had no friends who played video games and this is his first experience seeing it.
I don't understand how it's fun to ram someone, maybe because the game itself is fun, maybe it's very popular and sells a lot of copies for a reason, maybe people can do these crazy things in video games because the only consequences happen in the game. game and not in real life maybe running over aliens is fun for the same reasons running over people is maybe we shoot our marines in halo because they say funny thank you sir can i have another no? It's not like because I do that I'd actually shoot a real life Marine you silly Neanderthal let's keep using this logic.
To be a competent architect engineer or business expert, this game teaches me how to open my own theme park. Can you teach me how to build roller coasters? Of course, not because it's a game. Doesn't represent reality if you have driven the fastest cars in a forza motorsport game does that mean you could jump into a stock car and race the nascar circuit like a pro? there are some games made to be like simulations but still no simulation can prepare you enough for the real world you know i don't know why you would want to simulate this if there was a video game where you get hit on the head with a snow shovel would you want to know what it really felt like if you couldn't learn martial arts? just playing mortal kombat or watching dragon ball you need to physically do and perform these things with your own body because it's muscle memory it's as simple as that one of the most important reasons people play games is because they can do things they want.
I normally wouldn't be able to in real life, but it's this lack of understanding of the difference between reality and fantasy that renders many of these anti-gamer arguments meaningless. Many lawsuits have been proposed over the years that would hamper the game industry's abilities over what they could put in their games and who could buy them. I think most people don't care about the legal gibberish, but players should be glad because most, if not all, of these laws were never passed along with the California Nine. other states passed laws banning the sale of violent video games to children, but legal challenges prevented any of those laws from taking effect.
Most of the judges really thought that this law is too vague. game developers game publishers and too restricted for you to know first amendment rights even miners in court of law judges often wouldn't find reasonable or provable c or relationship between violent video games or obscene and violent or harmful actions to minors nor were any of the proposed laws written clearly enough for judges to take them seriously, most of the time they were too vague and the restrictions they proposed were in violation from the first amendment that glorious and beautiful first damn amendment and to paraphrase a court observer today thomas jefferson didn't have an xbox but when it comes to violent video games, no matter how graphic they are, the government can't ban them from being sold to children because of course what jefferson meant also protects video games probably the industry's most notable opponent of video games video games was a lawyer named jack thompson who had appeared in many of these videos and media discussions and had filed tons of lawsuits against video game producers retail companies you name it, this guy's wikipedia page is full of numerous lawsuits he has filed with him constantly blaming and c Laiming video games were responsible for certain shootings and murders all of them were shot down the funny thing is Jack Thompson was disbarred which basically means he was fired from being a lawyer in the United States for the rest of his life this usually happens due to unethical or criminal conduct and I think that says a lot when the biggest opponent of gaming had his legal license revoked and it says a lot about the cases that Jack Thompson tried to make against video games, everything ends as it is now because no one has tested it or has been able to test it sufficiently. the causation of violent and obscene video games with real world crime and from a legal point of view that tells us a lot about the war on video games the court ruling was very clear that the california statute was flawed in all respects legal today the highest court in the nation in a 7-2 decision ruled that the law is unconstitutional the games are protected by the first amendment today's ruling by the court is a clear statement that i watched deo games are entitled to the same degree of first amendment protection as movies, music and books, of course, one of the main concerns that these anti-gamers propagate is how all these games will affect the impressionable minds of children the more children are involved in violence. on screen that their own behavior can become more aggressive and more violent many parents want to know what those games are doing to their children definitely not for the kids definitely not for my kids that new factor that was never there before is visual violence images inflicted on children, particularly video games, but crime has decreased.
Juvenile crimes have decreased. Maybe it's good for kids. Are we afraid of our own children? Do we forget that they too are citizens and have the right to the essential freedom to read or do we think our children so evil so vicious so naive but this is a comic book story of murder robbery murder acceptance hoax for timey friend you right, Do we think our children are so susceptible to evil that all it takes is a video game about killing for them to kill naturally? Adults and teenagers can comprehend things better than younger minds, so of course the most obscene material shouldn't be accessible to children, but whose job it is to regulate what childrenthey digest in their heads, what do you say to parents who worry, it's too violent, it's not good for children, what do I recommend is that your children play, play with them? i know you can really be there to answer questions and help them get through it jefferson says it all comes down to good parenting let me tell you kids hurting kids is not some kind of new epidemic like this guy would have you believe i know a lot of little kids that are playing these games are nice kids and they're not going to go out and hurt anybody now so i see it's not true bill they're hurting they're hurting their brothers and sisters they're hurting themselves as if siblings never fought over who got on the swing first thats just kids being kids dude thats growing up with brothers and sisters anyone can vouch for that look i think we can all agree that many games you should not. being played by kids like they shouldn't watch certain movies or tv shows or how we don't want to swear and do stupid things in front of them it's the job of parents to be in control of their kids and know what they are playing and doing in their early years younger, I think it's a good idea for a child not to play a violent video game, but that recommendation is not because doing so will turn that child into a murderer, it's simply because doing so is exposing that child to something that is going to scare them. and as parents our job is to protect our children if parents are so concerned about violent media affecting their children that they are responsible for allowing them to watch their children by shifting the blame to the forms of entertainment around them we are just bad parenting its really that simple would you rather play video games that are violent or go out and beat each other up is better than getting involved with drugs or something you know is something or what to do with your time when they have nothing to do when they walk the streets that is when problems are created not because of the machines the lack of machines causes problems, other experts say that children need a combination of all kinds of experiences and that all media, including video, have something to offer. theft auto grand theft auto grand theft auto grand theft auto grand theft auto grand theft auto grand theft auto grand theft auto grand theft auto in all of my research the most cited game supposedly promoting violence in real life is yes you guessed it, cory in the house on the reel, although there are a couple of reasons grand theft auto is the most commonly referenced game, it's because one it makes a lot of money, two it's very popular and recognizable by the ignorant masses and three , it allows players to do and experience a lot of cultural taboos, but what I can say is that a lot of attention is paid to this game because in some car theft or violent crime incidents, the perpetrator said something about grand theft auto and when there is a gunfight oh he played grand theft auto yes he cost him that thats not fair to say he is a popular scapegoat but is it really fair to demonize this series of games?
Is it fair to say that rockstar is run by a group of sociopaths and they should be shut down permanently. I'm willing to shut down Rockstar because, oh yeah, because they're run by a bunch of sociopaths, uh, and they're a one-company crime wave. Are these? A handful of cases among the millions of people who bought and played these games are worth all this commotion of course not, but that hasn't stopped people from making bombastic claims like this crooked and corrupt shadow industry selling and he hides violence against his own people through vicious violent video games. blaming real world violence on video games because the nra has nothing to do with guns or violence they don't push for more lenient gun policies no no i don't see it's those violent video games that are to blame I think this is really just a way to deflect any kind of blame for the mass shootings that have been going on in video games.
I really think that's it. a society makes arbitrary decisions about what developers can put in their games what is acceptable, if the government is creating legislation and laws about what is acceptable then this just creates a strong hold on free speech ch and the free speech because there's a difference there's a very slippery slope between free speech and art because then who sits judging jerry now obviously there are some indie games that can't be regulated that can be pretty good like kindergarten killers. but those are indie games not made by people within the industry and there are some games that have been in the industry that deserve all the criticism they get and even gamers can attest to this for example the infamous porn game from atari Custer's Revenge a Game that no joke is about having sex with a survey-bound Native American woman or about retribution to hell that portrays you having sex with a woman in the same room in which you murdered the people who apparently killed her. they held captive and their general shitty game or something like chiller which would have been available to play in a public arcade by anyone a game that featured graphic torture and as I said mortal kombat was criticized by the news media communication and other media and became the catalyst that led to the creation of the esrb, a company that should exist because there needs to be some kind of regulation. ion, but just as with alcohol in the prohibition era, too many restrictions and regulations.
It will invariably lead to problems. Virtually all negative reports on Grand Theft Auto do not mention any kind of in-game positivity. What if the story provides valuable insight into real world problems? What if the players learn more about a particular culture? What if they did something? friends who play the game of course wouldn't mention that number one because it's not a juicy dramatic story and two it doesn't fit your agenda gta in all its incarnations has certainly become the poster child for many of these websites of news and organizations to put on a platform and condemn and they do it as if grand theft auto represented gamers in the industry as a whole what made grand theft auto 3 the f The first big hit of the series so memorable was not the not the fact that you could hit people with baseball bats or shoot them in the back of the head with pistols, but the fact that it was an open 3D living world where you could do whatever you want at any time find your own way to have fun and let the characters were so deep and interesting in recent years playing violent video games has been portrayed as a cause of mental instability a cause of mass shootings violent crimes whatever people even has compared it to drug and substance abuse they say the connection between gaming violence and aggression is as strong as the medical association between cigarette smoking and lung cancer well we don't let our kids drink beer or smoke cigarettes and its really hard to avoid and then once you start its hard to quit yea so is crack cocaine now i haven't physically ingested any of my n64 cartridges or game cds i imagine not recommended b are you seriously suggesting i Is drug abuse as dangerous for the mind as playing violent video games?
They are comparing a physical substance that alters the chemical composition of your body to a visual and interactive entertainment medium. I think this goes without saying, but that's stupid. To be fair, doing anything for too long can be bad for the body and mind, but I wonder how many alcohol and drug-related deaths and crimes are there compared to video game-related deaths and crimes? How many people go into rehab for video games? compared to narcotics alcohol and other drugs i don't need to mention the statistics we all know the answer there is also the idea that violent games and media desensitize us to real violence and that may be the case but i think that we can all agree that our societies are not as bloodthirsty as they were in the past, I mean the second world war, the roman coliseums, the crusades, endless examples of human brutality that far exceed anything we have to do.
Today, the idea that violent media desensitizes us isn't really surprising considering that it's part of what makes us human, it's part of our history, and that history is taught to children, adolescents, and adults around the world, books for children are full of bloody violence in grimm's fairy tales he said hansel and gretel baked their captor in an oven high school reading lists he said contained violence from homer dante and virgil to the savage murder of one of the children maroons in lord of the flies fox news even linked these mass murderers through the common tendency of all of them playing video games, but too often the media focuses on the less important factors, that young man who locked himself in a basement and played video games hour after hour after hours watching uh you know and faking the time of the murder after hour after hour after hour it didn't numb him wait how long was he locked in his basement hour after hour after hour after hour after hour after hour and he's been locked in his room playing violent video games for the last few years and he has no human contact geez maybe the fact that the guy spent ages not contacting another human being was a bigger factor than him playing violent games isolation can have terrible effects on your mind your crazy isolation can do that to the mind but i mean i guess the main cause of this kind of situation is the shooter i mean the news reports are already coming out which means he was probably paranoid schizophrenic and so on and looking rather not the video games contributed to that he really seems to be seeing maybe the smallest effect here in fact would be It's more unusual to find one of these shooters who didn't play video games, so actually finding out that they play violent video games isn't participatory. ularly surprising considering that if you take a random sample of any man, most of them will report playing violent video games, perhaps it would be a better use of our time to look at the person's medical and criminal history and find answers there maybe dylan clebold and eric harris shot columbine because they were bullied because they hated school maybe they were prescribed drugs that negatively affected their minds or how easy it was for them to get guns maybe it was just the perfect storm of so many factors and not only a single one that is the root cause of any tragedy no matter how many psychological case studies are done with these people because the bottom line is that it takes a very disturbed and disconnected minded person to carry out these kinds of atrocities i think the important question It's not what role video games played in this shooting, the important question is what role did video games play? media in this shooting because they would love to have you believe that they are just reporting the facts of these shootings these murders that they are doing their journalistic duty but why then do we have and need such extensive coverage every minute of the queue for these murderers lives and broadcasts them hour after hour after hour after hour it is a form of glamor publicity and infamy that these psychopaths seek and the media gives it to them why does the media give out the names and faces of the perpetrators so much more often? than those of the victims because it is a better story.
I would say that the effect of the media on mass shootings is much greater than that of all violent video games. There were 20 years of mass murder during which I have repeatedly told CNN and our other outlets. don't want to spread more mass murder don't start the story with blaring sirens don't have pictures of the killer don't do this 24/7 coverage do everything you can to get the body to tell the main story locate this story to the affected community and make it as boring as possible in every other market because every time we get intense saturation coverage of a mass murder we expect to see one or two more within a week now I'm not a crime or psychology expert , but I think most violent crimes are carried out because the person in question is in desperate need, wants attention, is in his head, or is very, very pissed off about something I say, leave the details to the investigators and focus more on the victims by providing them with the support and care they need to move on with their lives.
If these media outlets claim to be doing the right thing in what they cover, they should be helping the victims and giving little to no information about the perpetrator, so at this point we're going to talk about real statistics, real studies, and uncovering the truth. scientific of the matter. In my research, many scientists and psychologists believe in thecorrelation of violent video games and mass shootings, and many others don't believe that. Many reports found or suggested a link between playing these games in aggressive behavior which I think is a given for almost any type of game I mean almost everyone is going to get aggravated or f rusty when they land on the boardwalk this latest study says that can't find a citation that aggressive thoughts and actions don't come from violent content in games, but rather that it's being bad at playing difficult games that leads to aggression in the real world, perhaps if you're predisposed to aggressiveness. the behavior that theoretically interests you in violent video games because it speaks to your aggressiveness, yes, and as the old saying goes, guns don't kill people, lag does. hacker gangs or any number of frustrating elements and naturally those things will frustrate you which could lead to aggression but aggressive behavior is not inherently bad when playing mario party. the star, even so, correlation is not causation and just because something triggers aggressive behavior doesn't automatically mean it also triggers the now original real life violence Finally, I planned to list numerous sources that would confirm what I'm saying here, but This video is going on for quite some time and I think it's time for it to end.
What it all boils down to is that violent crime is a juvenile occurrence. arrests are down and video game sales, even for violent ones, have skyrocketed in the last 20 years and that's the truth of the matter. I can't imagine what more study we could have other than the fact that gaming is more popular and crime has decreased in conclusion all these articles and reports against gamers have yet to prove a correlation between violent video games and violent consequences in the world real this archaic view that violent video games cause real life violence is held mostly by people who don't understand the medium by aging politicians, out of touch reporters, people with no credibility, authority or experience and even snakes until science proves Otherwise, most reasonable people and especially the players themselves will.
I believe what science, truth, and credible research say we should believe, unless they come up with some groundbreaking new evidence that changes what we believe these anti-gamer articles and reports should this 40-year war on gaming should come to an end. end in the unpredictable future until the next big event comes along that threatens the very fabric of society, as it always has, this video was sponsored by jp fitness if you are interested in the practice and scientific knowledge of keeping your body healthy by doing exercise nutrition jp fitness has an incredibly underrated youtube channel and i recommend you check it out the links will be in the description and on screen leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments below this is the act man signing off peace
