Pierce Brosnan apparently believes that violent media, such as violent games and movies, have a negative effect on people. Go figure! Pixel Enemy has more.
Great times with you Mr.Bond. http://youtu.be/ZIUWJkNCh6M
Meh hypocrite. He has played in violent movies, mr Brosnan is now sh*tting where he is eating.
Yeah, some actors have a different and more sensible take... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
So for his opinion/take on video game violence to be valid..he should have NOT been in violent movies? Violence is part of life, we will know about it anyway..but there is a level of control and responsibility needed for certain individuals who are affected by such media. We can share Peice Brosnan views and still be into such movies and games..due to our nature being wired that way..it simply boils down to a certain lack of compassion and again, responsibility. Action and violence can be fun in small doses..and again is part of life. What Brosnan shares is COMMON SENSE. If you don't agree with him to some degree than i suggest you find a way to comprehend it and accept it...we are all different and to some, such media violence is a nice push/spart for those already unstable.
But he is part of the problem, he is advocating against and thats whats ridiculous about it and that makes him a hypocrite. If i rob people for a living and then afterwards say robbing people is bad. Wouldnt i look like a complete hypocrite?
@Majibest So because he was in a movie with violence in it, he should encourage violence or even avoid the subject all together for the sheer fact that he will come off as a BIT of a hypocrite? What he is implying is nothing of the sort compared to the stuff he has been in (his movies) He is talking about higher level of violence, games for example gives the player MORE control of such violence and acts which has been proven to desensitise us. And for those certain individuals with that lack of say compassion and self control will only be fuelled to accomplished an already established violent act. His movie career wasn't established by his blood thirst or need to cause violence, but to make a living and have a career, so that hypocrisy is total bs..since Movies are NOT real. Unless of course he did a REAL crime back in his day. Case in point...regardless of his acting career, he has to send the right message which he obviously feels strongly about.
"So because he was in a movie with violence in it, he should encourage violence or even avoid the subject all together for the sheer fact that he will come off as a BIT of a hypocrite?" Encourage or avoid the subject? Uhhhh, no. If he thinks that violent movies are bad for people, then he is part of the (invented) problem for being a part of them.
Oh really? Why have the Cod/BF/KZ/DUST/WWE/MMA/ etc fans not killed each other already?...said many of times before and i will say it before...Violence and extreme violence at that existed before gaming and movies...but if this guy really thinks this have him locked up for conspiracy to destroy hole generations lol...that way we wont have to listen to his b.s again.
Well Said bro. Violence already existed even when man first came into being. There are wars in medieval times and torture devices. Theres no internet, TV games or movies. Another example is the Roman empire. The wild west back then when almost everyone has a gun. Old people these days doesn't know what they are talking about but they should know these things through experience and they are old enough to know history. And I forgot, WW2 where Hitler and his NAZIs killed millions of people especially jews. So i guess Hitler at that time is playing games?? watching violent movies??
Good ol' double-O has been hitting the martinis a little too hard. Go home Pierce, you're drunk.
he need all the attention he can get, thats all
Why care about his opinion on video games of all things?..lol it's his opinion... and why anyone would care about it is beyond me..(unless your his kids, then you're screamed out of gaming goodness)
He got old that what´s going on. Most people get a little paranoid when they get older.
He should be on one of those commercials where the old people talk about all the risks they took as a young person and how they would never do it now.
So does 10 minutes of CNN . I sincerely doubt Mr. Brosnan has touched a videogame, much less spent ten minutes with one and therefore I can't ascertain what he is basing this sentiment off of. Just another hollow celeb dancing to the beat of whatever is being said these days. Im sure terrorists watch James Bond for tips and play videogames for practice. Not. *sigh*
but aside from the fact that your comment is hypocritical, why should care about your opinions concerning video games? Go home, Pierce, you're drunk...
Uh yeah, they have an effect on a small number of people who were going to be stupid anyway sooner or later. Books are even more powerful in that regard (the imagination factor). Anyway. "what we can do with computer graphics is terrifying"... is he mad? Terrifying lol
Pierce is just annoyed because nobody in Ireland pays attention to him.
Like most celebrities, everything that comes out of their mouth is absolute nonsense.
Maybe if you were still Bond i would take you seryously but now.... Shut up yesterday actor.
People who think like these have no clue and have so "Little" knowledge about the media in effect whether movies, games or music. Its kind of annoying people think like this. If games and movies produce evil intentions, then how do they explain "History"? the medieval times where war is always rampant?? there are no games or movies at that time, time of the romans? where betrayal and murder always happens? and torture devices are found throughout the old ages. Bottomline, Violence is already roaming from the start of human life. Games and movies are not the cause of it. I played too many violent games and did that make me twisted?? Heck I can't even punch someone in the face even if he provokes me and makes me angry. Its people who are the source of their own darkness.
