Good, this even was completely retarded and ignored the real issue by punishing people taking part in a completely harmless hobby.

Damn. I was planning on going to get rid of some M rated games i dont play any more. Amazon was only offering like 4 bux per title, these ppl were offering up 25 dollar gift cards to local eateries and what not. Sounded like an awesome deal to me.

Ignorance is a dangerous thing.

Apparently so are console games! It explains the need for rounded edges on Wii U disks - it stops us spazzing out and slashing peoples throats with them or using them as rudimentary Shuriken ;)

perhaps they realized that their offer was way, way better than Amazon/GameStop -- at least the retailers get to re-sell it for a profit. or perhaps they felt that there are better ways of using the $25/game.

the article stated however that they will be "providing gift certificates to families who had 'the violent video games conversation with their children.'" -- now, i'm wondering how that "conversation" goes... "Son, violent games are bad for you (long pause)... Now where's my gift check?!?" -- or what if it turns out that the gift check's for GameStop.

Talk about scapegoating. As if gathering violent vidoegames into a big pile and burning them is gonna solve ANYTHING. (???)

What a great way to ignore the real issues like MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, BULLYING, and FIREARM REGULATION. Nah.. that stuff's got nothing to do with violent tragedies taking place. It must be those gosh darn kids and their videogames.
