Conspiracy nut Alex Jones says the Pentagon created FPS games "Radio show host, and general conspiracy nutjob, Alex Jones has been making the rounds talking about the current gun control debate. Most notably, he made an appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight where the discussion over the right to bear arms became a bit more "passionate" than one would expect. On the Opie and Anthony Show, Jones explains the origins of FPS games, and no, he doesn't believe it was John Caramack and John Romero who came up with it." (Culture, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

As someone who was fairly involved in the "conspiracy nutjob" community for a while through a few friends, I can honestly say that most conspiracy theorist types think Alex Jones is a joke and a wacko whose only "redeeming" feature, if it can be called that, was his ability to get on television.
BattleAxe  +   1121d ago | Well said
Alex Jones has alot of great guests on his show, and he does a ton of research into these "conspiracy theories" which ends up exposing the truth in many cases. is a far better news source than CNN, MSNBC and FOX News IMO.

His only problem is that he gets too worked up at times, but I have alot of respect for the guy. Before he came along, I had no idea about certain groups like the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations, and I had never heard of the Bohemian Grove.
nunley33  +   1121d ago
Yeah i agree with you alot of what he says can be proven absolute fact. I would hear him as a guest on the overnight radioshow "coast to coast am" sometimes and he always had great info and didn't come off as crazy. I've never listened to his show but his is good and he also has too.

It's fun to make jokes about it, but some people don't know that they actually exist. The Bavarian Illuminati formed on May 1, 1776 under Adam Weishaupt. They do have a history.

Not here to start an argument, but i would like to get word in because a majority of people completely dismiss that this secret society ever existed or currently exists.

@Redrum. I have never been more terrified of owls since Bohemian grove.
Linsolv  +   1122d ago
But you're forgetting that the Bavarian Illuminati were concerned about the preservation of knowledge, and the organization died out hundreds of years ago. In fact, the later secret societies of the 19th century (Freemasons, Rosy Cross, Golden Dawn, etc) were largely an attempt to recreate the Illuminati. Well, that an an attempt by Aleister Crowley, once he got his hands on them, to get laid and have orgies.
FlameBaitGod  +   1122d ago
Actually.... if you look up information of the Illuminati you would see that in almost every movie there's a symbol on the background. I didn't believe at first and I know not everything can be true but man... Look up vids on you tube and you'll see how the majority of movies have Illuminati symbols hidden in them.

Btw people, don't believe everything the media says, just by doing a little bit of research on the internet, you will see how all the media in the US is owned by a few people.

John Romero helped make Wolf3D, Doom, and Doom 2. I'd credit most of the success to John Carmack, but you can't say he never made a good game.

He may have been present.

But its quite clear his input was negligible at best.

Didn't you ever do any group projects in school? There's always -one- person who takes credit without doing any work. Johrn Romero is that person.

Alex Jones is cool and all, he does provide facts and evidence most of the time, but famn when he says shit like this, no wonder people dont take him seriously.
GribbleGrunger  +   1122d ago
I'm with you on that. When watching Alex Jones, you have to use your own filtering because he tends to make links everywhere. But at the heart of some of the things he says, there is some truth. I'm not sure about this particular case, but generally speaking he is right a lot of the time. It's getting tougher finding verification on the web (especially Youtube). Alternative views are very important in a shrink-wrapped world.
Hydralysk  +   1122d ago
There's a big difference between a simply alternative view and an extremist one.

When he's yelling about the revolution that's coming if they try to enact ANY gun laws, and telling Brits they are living in a giant police state so bad he accuses Piers Morgan of 'escaping' to America he's not presenting a credible alternative.

It's pretty much impossible to have a debate when you are foaming at the mouth enraged and yelling over, interrupting, or dismissing/ignoring everything your opponent is saying.

We all know there are reasonable gun owners out there, but it's hard to convince people they are reasonable when the most vocal among them are the crazed paranoid gun nuts yelling about the coming revolution.

How is he "racist", I've never heard anyone accuse him of that, from listening to his show I've come to the conclusion that he's a staunch Anti Racist. He's not "paranoid" either, you're just saying that because he's just jumping onto the bandwagon by badmouthing FPS games, which we all know have no relationship to gun crime. Alex Jones is a snake oil salesman but he's not a nut and for what it's worth Piers Morgan really is a scumbag who has no business lecturing anyone on anything.

Say it to his face! I dare any of you to call his show and challenge him on his facts. You all are a bunch of soft, spoiled trendies without a brain cell to call your own.

The earliest two documented first-person shooter video games are Maze War and Spasim. Maze War features on-foot gameplay that evokes modern first-person shooter games. Development of the game began in 1973 and its exact date of completion is unknown. Spasim had a documented debut at the University of Illinois in 1974. The game was a rudimentary space flight simulator, which featured a first-person perspective.[4] They were distinct from modern first-person shooters, involving simple tile-based movement where the player could only move from square to square and turn in 90-degree increments.[31] Spasim led to more detailed combat flight simulators and eventually to a tank simulator, developed for the U.S. army, in the later 1970s

What do you know? One minute of research and I already confirmed what he claimed. Hmmmmm.......

armycore  +   1122d ago
The government using technology already developed is nothing new. But saying that the Pentagon developed FPS games, when clearly the first FPS games were made by people at MIT in the 70s and developers like John Caramack shows that Alex Jones is full of shit. What you're doing, like him, is grasping at straws and trying to link them together.

I've been frequenting for a couple months now... his radio show is starting to become repetitive now with all the gun grab talk but he always has proof to back up what he says and even gives out links to articles and documents. Sure he's over the top most of the time but that's how you get attention... I personally believe some of the things he's brought up. Mainly Chem-trails... which I've been seeing more frequently the past couple of years. As far as his single comment on the FPS genre I'd tell you to just get over it... he doesn't actively pursue banning or demonizing them but he does point out from time to time that it desensitizes us to the violence and keeps us glued to our TV's (Darpa flicker boxes XD) lowering our IQ's and keeping us from being active in our communities. You guys really need to go in with a open mind rather than criticize someone that speaks openly no matter how absurd he comes out at first. The Peirs Morgan conversation is a bad introduction but it had a build up and even I will admit he handled it poorly on national TV.

OHHH the irony. Talking about lowering our IQ's with TV because someone told you... on the internet. Don't listen to the leftist media, listen to this guy cuz...he agrees with me.

There's truth in the Bible, doesn't make the Earth 10 thousand years old.

Conspiracies exist because on some deep level certain people want/need them. Its a fear reaction. Fear of government, of phenomena we don't understand, even a black guy in the White House.

Media goes after games... because? See?

Sometimes what is, Nothing more. Oswald got lucky, UFOs are just lights, contrails are just water vapor, and video games are just entertainment.

For some its very hard to accept that they don't know or the there was someone capable of shooting a bunch of children at a school. For them it simply cannot be that simple.

Well it is that simple. And Mr. Jones doesn't do this for charity. Neither does Beck, Limbaugh, or any extremist that preys on your fears. Left or right, same thing. They do it to make money, not for you to be informed.

Something is going to the future? Get right out of town.

Seriously if pundits and extremists could foretell future we'd all be dead by now.

The mainstream media wants money and people with extreme views provide that.

If history shows us anything its that humans are notoriously bad at predicting the future. You can prep for a war someone told you is coming or you can think for yourself.

Its no surprise the all conspiracies are generally the same. Its just a process of filling in the blanks and making it sound good. Then add a dash of Government and voila, homemade conspiracy.

It all happens because people like yourself have a deep distrust of government in general. Then you are presented with someone's "conclusion" which they then begin to cherry pick "evidence" that supports their conclusion. It all seems legit, until one realizes the conclusion itself was flawed.

Conspiracy theories are an illusion. You are so busy fitting all the links together that you completely miss that the conclusion was BS from the start. Example: The government would hide the existence of aliens. This is almost always goes without saying. But is it actually true?

I used to believe in conspiracies, then I grew up. I stopped being afraid of what I don't understand and found that learning the boring truth was far more interesting.
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   1121d ago
I've seen a UFO cluster before so I don't know my stance on the whole UFO/Alien existence thing... There are plenty of real video's coming out from across the world showing exactly what I saw and here's a link to one.

It's easy to be skeptical over this but I have personally witnessed whatever it is in that video myself. I'm not a tin foil wearing conspiracy theorist so I also know that they resemble ballons but the way they were moving (not in that particular video) when I saw them resembled the way fish move when they're being schooled together by Dolphins or sharks.

As for everyone else picking at my last post... you really need to inform yourself. The world is on the verge of collapse... conspiracy or not. I'm not actively trying to convince people that "THE END IS NIGH"... and in all honesty I don't want to see it come down to that but it'll be us or our kids that will be the ones fighting the next BIG war... I mean the proxy wars going on in the middle east right now should be enough to be concerned about.
