It’s never fun to have your relatives criticize your technology-laden habits at family gatherings. But what if it was the government condemning you? Chinese citizens will be at risk of life-punishment should they participate in too many video games.
they would give me the death penalty. that sucks for them tho.
That is horrible. However, Asians can and do get carried away with video games to a point where they are actually dying from playing so much so something needs to be done there. But not this.
You do realize you are talking about several billion people as if they are all the same. If you look hard enough you can find people doing just about anything that is possible.
You should take your SJW glasses off. We just had an article about a Chinese guy almost dying from gaming so much and when he was taken out of the internet caffee, he kept saying that he wants to continue or save his game. And there are many stories like these coming out of Korea and China as well. Somehow, I don't see the same kind of articles coming from anywhere else. Obviously there are crazy addicts all over the world but I would wager that there are way more in Asian countries than anywhere else. That could be do to the large population, or because of the culture. I don't know. This is not trashing Asians. It's just simply stating the truth. I know that stating the truth today is a cardinal sin in the eyes of the SJW especially when they think it is offending someone. Are you asian? If no, how about you don't get offended for them? Thanks!
Most stereotypes, while currently socially taboo, usually exist for a very good reason.
Love that "President for Life" in China. Things look brighter than ever there, because unopposed authority never gets abused or anything.
What happens if you play offline?
Well being realistic there's a few problems with that. 1: It's China so most games played are on PC 2: Most games are online So for the few people who don't fall into those categories may be safe but that certainly isn't the majority of Chinese gamers.
It's a good thing that US and EU are waging trade wars for no reason. Great way to donate the future to authoritarian regimes like China.
In America, Trump states (on games): "We have to do something about maybe what they're seeing and how they're seeing it," he said. "And also video games. I'm hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people's thoughts." Tl;dr Scapegoat games to avoid the gun debate issue ----------------- Trump on (Chinese President) Xi's Power grab: “He’s now president for life. President for life. And he’s great,” the US president reportedly told Republican donors. “And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll give that a shot some day,” -President Donald J. Trump ------------------- And to think of all the overweight, no girlfriend-having, neckbeard, basement dwelling, gamergate, MGTOW loser, caucasian males (not all, just the ones with the above afforementioned psychologcial disabilities) that eventually consolidated their weak power to make up what is now the "Alt-Right", who then voted for Trump because they thought that a fat, low IQ loser like him could somehow turn America back to the 1950s when white men (and only men) had the illusion of power, but only by keeping everyone else down. Sad. Now he will take away the only thing these losers have left: Their videogames. Just like the Chinese prez is doing. The same Chinese president that Trump admires. Trump already allowed Net Nutrality to suffer. Now the final axe to gaming is coming. Such pity.
Another triggered feminist on a gaming site? Say it ain't so! Go ahead and keep blaming others for your own problems though, it will get you nowhere but being the miserable disgrace that you are. Oh, and by the way, women voted for Trump too because he was a way better than the alternative candidate Hillary Clinton who should be in prison right now.
There is no freedom in a communist controlled country, history has proven it time and again.
i prefer to get hanged right away if I can't play any type of video games :D
