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...

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 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?

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.

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??
