Supporting violence in a game: deplorable

Supporting violence in a war: acceptable...?

Wave 'dem flags, hypocrites!

Children shouldn't be playing or witnessing this game. Simple as that. The parents are to blame, not a videogame. The videogame is there to be played, it has absolutely no influence over anything or anyone......because its a disc. Blaming videogames instead of blaming parents is incredibly lazy and ignorant and the fact that this kind of BS comes from the majority of peoples main source of news is a scary thought.

When will dumb politicians/media and activists realise that?

Lol, one disagree, is that you Fox News?

yea but read what Ned Luke said, he kind of owns them

U can say the same thing about guns but they want to keep passing dumb ass bans

Parents are the once watching the news not kids. If you want rating and business blaming video-game is a great idea. If i called you a lazy parent how would you react? I am sure everyone here know how you would react.

I agree the main problems are parents, really they don't want no responsibility now in days, they want the school to raise them, and the government to pay for them, this is not a communist country, morals are set a home not at a school.

To be honest the only person I've seen defend video games as not contributing to violence is Stossel, and he works for Fox Business. Then again, I don't exactly watch the news so perhaps people on Democrat networks have defended the industry as well. If so good for them but I hear plenty of "progressives" calling for game bans as well as gun bans both in an effort to "save the children."

MrMeToo1529d ago

The thing is parents can only prevent kids from viewing certain movies, games ect. It's way too easy to access games and movies now and days. It's only going to get easier as technology improves. I think parents need to explain to their kids about why they don't want them playing certain games or watching certain movies. They should also explain what the consequences will be should they act on what they see in entertainment coupled with trying their best not lettting their kids view certain things. So yeah I agree with you , I just think parents should take it a step further with communication.

You are blaming parents for Rockstar crap games?

GarrusVakarian1528d ago (Edited 1528d ago )

Lmao, what?

The article says that GTA5 supports violence in children, that can only be possible if the child is able to play the game and that can only be possible through parents not paying attention to what their kids are doing (bad parenting).

Sigh, the intelligence level on this website is laughable.

Its a game made by adults,for adults. Why should there be a problem in this.

Ipunchbabiesforfun1529d ago

Yet nobody ever blames movies lol...

SouthClaw1529d ago

I am one of the agrees to your comment but I can see why gaming would get more blame than movies. Movies you watch something. Games you actually interact and do what is in the games as apposed to just viewing them. I think blaming games is rubbish. Kids should not be playing these games. Bad parenting.

christrules00411529d ago (Edited 1529d ago )

I think gaming gets more attention because of you can play games for a long time and more frequently. Movies are kind of a 2 hour thing and then you move on. Games take a while to beat so people play them more times over the week so games actually would have more of a influence then movies would because of the extra length gaming has. It's like saying you listened to screamo music for an entire day 4 days in a row and then watched 1 horror movie and then say your scared because of the movie when you actually set yourself up with how much screamo music you have been listening to.

There is also the parenting to teach the difference between a virtual game world and the real world.

Then there is the mental illness. The thing is with mental illnesses something sets them off but it isnt actually that that specifically is the problem. It's a chemical imbalance in the brain. What the government has to do is teach parents what types of mental illnesses are out there and what signs are to show what mental illness there child has. When they know they can get meds but since most parents don't know then what can they do? Nothing. That is where Ithink the government has gone extremely wrong. Instead of teaching and researching about it they blame it on games and research what affect the game has on a child when in reality it's what is the trigger but doesn't go down to the root of the problem.

Say the same kid with the same mental illness loves hockey. There grades are suffering so there parents pull them out of it. What is to stop that trigger? It could easily become the same outcome because they haven't gotten to the root of the problem.

I think rap is by far the worst influence on "ignorant" people, due to "followers" and people that can't think straight for themselves.

movies and games should not be a thought

EliteGameKnight1529d ago (Edited 1529d ago )

well thats interesting and all, but why is it connected to Wii and Wii U?

(ON TOPIC) Yes the game is for adults and it saddens me to think that young children are veiwing some of the things in that game. Not saying its a bad game or anything, but its rated M for many reasons. I personally wouldn't be caught dead playing it. it goes againsts my morals
