Awesome move. Politicians and gaming should definately be mixed, might ease them up a bit.

GrimReaperGamer537d ago (Edited 537d ago )

Please accept my down vote and the many others that people will send your way. Politicians and the politics they push have no place in gaming period. Gaming is supposed to be a good source of entertainment and a fun hobby for people to immerse themselves in amazing stories involving characters that a person can feel a connection with. Gaming is not supposed to be filled with political, SJW bullcrap so based on your statement it seems to mean that you could care less about gaming and more about pushing some stupid, idiotic agenda like the politicians you so admire. They are nothing more than crooked thieves and thug, something they always will be.

Couldn't agree with you more. And not only that, but Merkel is the very kind of person that could arrive at Gamescom and go all "Jack Thompson" after seeing something with a bit of violence in it.

Would like to know what is SJW bullcrap to you? Cause I see a lot of racist people just say racist stuff is SJW when its not.

I also think if you push for political leaders, that dont have super pacs, you dont have " crooked thieves and thug, something they always will be."

Or push for reform in regulating congress like super pac limits, fundraisers,lobbying,etc. you can fix it instead of having the hopeless pathetic attitude you give off. Im sure the executives and ruling elite love your attitude though cause they can just stomp all over you and use you with that attitude

blackparade isn't saying for them to legislate over gaming but that playing some games might make them loosen up. Let them play Nintendo if that makes you feel better. Nintendo goes mostly for inoffensive fun.

This is the last person we want involved with gaming.

The woman who is single handedly destroying Germany while other countries are trying following her lead (disgusting). I hate this woman with a passion and there is so much blood on her hands..

Dragonscale537d ago

@grub, absolutely. She should be tried for treason amongst other things. When the 5hit hits the fan which it will, her and the rest of the eu cronies should be held accountable.

Maybe she can address the recent announcement of COD WW2's Swastikas being removed from Multiplayer and her thoughts on it?

GrimReaperGamer537d ago

She'll only say that censoring history is a good thing, which it's not and that she doesn't want video games to hurt little SJW feelings.

Null1980537d ago

GrimReaperGamer Yep, that's what I was getting at. She's definitely not "For the Gamers".

Dragonscale537d ago

Germany has some of the worst censorship of anywhere.

I bet she's a hardcore gamer.

Null1980537d ago

Please never reference "hardcore" with Merkel again. I think I'm going to have nightmares.

But yea, on topic, why not have one of Germany's star game developers open the show? Why give this woman a platform to speak for an entertainment medium she believes is in need of censorship, not just age ratings? They certainly Merked this one up.

agent4532537d ago

Lol merked this one up, that is hillarious

SolidGear3537d ago

What kind of nightmares? Lol
Is it like the ones BJ has when you go to sleep in Wolfenstein: The New Order :3

Germany bans and censors a lot of games and because of that sometimes the rest of Europe get's the censored version too. South Park for example
