Hitler would have been influenced by violent video games say researchers

Adolf Hitler, maniacal dictator of Nazi Germany and murderer of millions, would almost certainly have been influenced by violent video games had they existed, it has emerged.

In yet another blow for the much-maligned industry, researchers at the University of Cambridge, England, have confirmed that had controversial video games such as Grand Theft Auto 4, Saints Row: The Third and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 been available in the 1930s, Hitler’s reign of terror would have been significantly more brutal.

I REALLY hope whoever didnt get paid to come up with that, what a moron

Neckbear2146d ago

Oh come on, it was kinda amusing.

Everyone knows Hitler doesn't care about COD or GTA, his fave game is Meincraft.

EddieNX 2146d ago

@Vulcan project- You deserve some sort of oscar for your comment.

i guess Hitler was inspired by the dangerous and brainwashing evil CLASSICAL MUSIC!!!!

we should ban music and erase all trace of Richard Wagner work to prevent other hate crimes and genocides.

Damn you classical music, DAAAMMMMNNNN YOOOOUUUU!!!!!!!!!

It's obvious the Wagner is an evil influence, look what it did to Elmer Fudd

Yeah, he probably WOULD have been influenced by videogames....

...and he would have been so desensitized and placated that he would've sat in his Mom's basement playing CoD: Belgium At War and would have never started the Nazi party.

This is satire before people start going crazy lol.

ZombieNinjaPanda2146d ago

Terrible article. Why? Because it's blatant sarcasm, to people that are smart. The people who think video games are causing violence aren't smart. Therefore using something as advanced as sarcasm, they won't understand it and they'll just think you're agreeing with them and being serious.

eatcrayons2146d ago

Something like Poe's law right? A sufficiently advanced parody is indistinguishable from actual fundamentalist bullshit?

ZombieNinjaPanda2146d ago

Correct! But does Poe's law apply to people that are essentially stupid?

rainslacker2146d ago

At least we can laugh at them when they use this as proof in the future. You know it's coming.

LackTrue4K2146d ago

"and some developers would of been influenced by Hitler"

zerocrossing2146d ago

Have you heard of EA? lol I kid... well a little, maybe.

zerocrossing2146d ago

Still waiting on that "If Hitler were a gamer he would have played ???" article....

GribbleGrunger2146d ago (Edited 2146d ago )

Good lord, what will they think of next? I'm not beyond discussion on the subject of whether video games do or don't influence 'some' people, but this is absolute nonsense; although it could (and probably is, 'hopefully'), a tongue in cheek jab at the naysayers.

There is way to much no stated in the article about the study to really past judgement. A source link would be much appreciated

digitalscrutiny2146d ago

I'm pretty certain it is a joke about the way everyone blames videogames for everything.

TheFinalEpisode2146d ago (Edited 2146d ago )

Pics or it wouldn't have happened!

ZeroChaos2146d ago

You know people are desperate to discredit games when they have to bring him into the mix.

cyclindk2146d ago (Edited 2146d ago )

It's official... video games caused the Holocaust, yet... we still.. buy them.

Also, if nothing else, (without commenting on the ludicrous claims made by this study) it proves that WITHOUT video games, something like the Holocaust and all the other atrocities of this world have and still occur on a daily basis.
