Violent video game debate goes back decades

In 1981, a noted doctor claimed that popular shooting game Berzerk would cause a generation to grow up more violent. See his exact quote, compare it to the violent video game quotes of today, and see the thoughts of a gaming veteran on how that generation actually turned out. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, Industry, Retro)

"A number of gamers from the 1981 generation grew up to become lawyers, business owners and doctors. Joel West, the 1982 world champion on Berzerk, is a conservative Christian"

But behind closed doors there's not a single stick man that's safe, the mass carnage of stick men are everywhere.

It's a sad fact that today stick men are now on the endangered list and we need to setup high salary charities to protect and nurture the few left!!

I saw a small clip of "No Russian" on NBC News talking about video game violence. If Congress get a look at that clip......, SMH!!!

I can see it now.. they'll pass a law practically eliminating violence in video games, maybe even in movies. Then there will be another massacre.. and another.. and instead of saying, "Hey, maybe we were wrong about that" and undo what they did, they'll just move on, find something else to blame and take away that FREEDOM, too. That's how things work in America.
