does anybody actually watch annoyed gamer...? or even like him?? just wondering. i associate him with the likes of Geoff Keighley, so i do not.

I do (obviously otherwise I wouldn't submit it :D). I like him and his show is one of the better shows on GT. I think it was the episode before this or might have been the one before that he discussed depression in the industry and how he suffered with depression. Good episode (this one was less good). He does do some good rants. I think GT are really going down in quality shows. Invisible walls is good except for Shane Satterfield who seems to be very hypocritical with what he says. Bonus round is OK once in a blue moon but Geoff Keighley is a terrible host and gets too involved without shaping the conversation to bring up issues.

marcus is actually really smart and says what other gaming sites are scared to say. he is been a journalist and someone who had worked in PR department for publishers

i respect his opinion. in a industry where most people keep their mouths shut he says what's on his mind

i agree with his opinion on kids playing M rated games. than when that kids does something stupid gaming/gamers get the blame but what the fuck are the parents doing? your kid is your responsibility

It just too easy to dump children in front of the console/tv/computer and that is seen as parenting. I remember the Daily Mail in the UK tried to start a campaign to get porn banned/have to ask your ISP to unlock porn because children can see it. What they failed to realise is parents shouldn't let there children run ramped on the internet by themselves. Its the same with video games. It isn't like these children can get them without a parent being involved (I was once turned down for a 12 game before when I was 14 so the system works). Children shouldn't be playing a 18. Its for 18 year olds who can deal with the more mature themes

He has nothing in common with Geoff "Dew-ritos" Keighley other than having his videos published on Game Trailers. Either have enough info on a matter before making such assumptions or just don't make them.

The way I see it is videogames should be a reward for kids. For example when I was younger my parents would always buy me a game for doing well in school and that was a huge motivator to keep getting good grades so in the end it paid off. There were limitations like I could only play games on the weekend. I don't see anything wrong with parents buying mature games for their kids if they have earned them you just need a balance of how often they can play them. A specific time when I was young was when Re1 directors cut came out for ps1 and my dad bought it for my older brother and myself. The guy at the register told my dad "you know this is violent" and my dad responded "its ok they have earned it". Should kids that get terrible grades in school be rewarded with any videogames they want? No way, they should focus more on school than playing games. I personally think parents restricting rules to their children like not letting them play mature games and not letting them watch R rated films is the starting point that causes the kids to rebel when they are older and separate themselves from their parents. You shouldn't be too strict but you don't want to let them do whatever they want so thats why a balance is needed of what exactly a child can and can't do
