Daily Show clip

This was from a recent episode of the Daily Show, on the subject of Violent games and what the govt. is doing about them. Very funny.

Before you've made some bold statements about the blaring stupidity of "parents" who blame their inadequacies as responsible people on the apparent profound effect violent video games have on kids. Now it's the glorification of a satire which is itself poking fun at misused government power aimed against violent video games.

Is there some hostility towards and antagonistic tendencies towards the violent video game crusaders HitPerson?

Just an observation of course!

The clip is, indeed, very funny!

Is it that obvious?

A little, but probably like most other people here, I'm with you. The few bad people who are "influenced" by violent video games, were never really stable to begin with and obviously lacked the ability to constructively faucet their anger. Therefore, those few seriously disturbed people, "stole" certain ideas from video games. Warren LeBlanc is a good example of such an individual.

That was meant to be a rhetorical question, but anyway...

I just believe that people are willing to give up more of their rights (and ours along with them) so they don't have to do as much work. The best part was in the beginning when John Stewart was mocking Rep. Lee Terry (R) - Nebraska.

That sums up my argument with these people, what is stopping them from stepping in and telling their children that they are not allowed to play M-rated games. Instead, they figure they know whats right for everyody, and want to make it so no violent games exist for their kids to play.

Ever since I ripped of my first head in Mortal Kombat back in grade school, i have had a steady diet of unmitigated videogame violence. I'm now mostly through college and have yet to commit any violent crimes (or any other kind for that matter).

I obey the laws, pay my taxes and do my best to help those in need. If I want to go home and shoot a bundle of polygons that resembles a person/monster, I should be allowed to.

yeah, i watched the origional episode

Im soo embarrassed ...

Heh, bundle of polygons ... thats good, im gonna use that one next time i get in a argument about gaming ...

Can kids that are underage buy those videogames anyways? If they make a law i think they should make one that makes it illegal for kids to buy mature games ... that way it would put the guilt completely on the parents for buying it for them, or they would be the ones that would decide their kid is to unstable to play the game (if your kids chants things about death and starts fires ... better not get him the game.)

Honetly though, its the parents fault ... i find it hard that the parents can't exercise disipline when it comes to games. Its their decision ...

Yes, but in today's world parents see fit as their child should have equally what other children have, games of a Mature rating included, and don't pay much attention to it.

But when a murder happens and is blamed on the game, then the parents get defensive....

If msm didnt have violent video games to excise his anger upon, god knows what he would have done by now I havent seen or heard anything of him since he got his last hitman game....

Only kidding!

Did anyone else have competitions to see who could blow the most limbs off people in soldier of fortune? What a past time!

Sort of on-topic, both the ESA and EMA are looking to sue the state of Oklahoma for passing bill HB3004. According to the ARTICLE:

Quote
Under the law, no person, not even minors' parents or guardians, would be allowed to give or show them an inappropriately violent game. Retailers would also not be able to have such games on display where minors could see them, unless the lower two-thirds of the boxes were hidden behind "blinder racks," of the sort commonly used for sexually explicit magazines.


This is what these people want, to take the choice away from the parents, the families. Whoever can sit back and think this is not a big deal needs to reevaluate their mode of thought.

The Problem With That Law is That it does not define what a "Violent Game" is clearly.

I Beleve that law may not have been passed, I Could be wrong

It was signed into law earlier this month, but doesn't take effect until November. I do, however, see it being struck down mainly because the definition of violent games is so vague.
