"If you still buy your 10-13 year olds Black Ops 2 then that is simply bad parenting, isn't it?" Well said! That still comes down to the parents who ignore ratings and the store staff who clearly see who will be playing but still make the sale. Some years back, I was carded to buy Halo 2. I was about 25 at the time and got asked for ID. But behind me, there was a whiny kid asking dad to buy it for him, and the cashier didn't seem to care about that. If I got carded to check if I was over 18, why is she selling the game to the parent when obviously it's this 10 year old who will be playing? Aren't the ratings there for a reason? I'm so tired of this "blame it on the videogames" crap. It was 7 years ago that I wrote a piece about it (gamersintuition.com/article.p hp?t=violence if interested), and I can't believe the argument still stands! >:(
Jesus, Why do people complain about everything? If everyone stopped watching movies with violence and crime Do you think there will be less crime in the world??
Violence is something that people are going to see anyways so why do people say its not right for it child to have the game maybe not to young just old enough to understand
Video games....filthiest form of porn? I've seen much worst horrible stuff online. Dear lord, this Wayne lePierre is IMO dumb as hell. And really, he wants stop the shootings with more guns? WTF is this guy smoking?!
Guns. He's literally smoking guns.
Well this guy obviously never seen the stuff they do in those Japanese movies.
I think pornography is probably the filthiest form of pornography. You ever see a horse sodomize a man in a video game? If so, please send me a link.
