It's a strange think that there's countless refrences to these studies BUT NO ONE HAS actually found a study which links Video games alone to violence. I am going to conduct a study into the dissapearances of these studies because if so many anti-gaming people can find them why can't anyone else?

Oh WAIT THEY ARE MADE UP. VIDEO GAMES DOES NOT AND NEVER HAS CAUSED VIOLENCE.

Here's another fact, the largest high school killing in the U.S happend BEFORE THE INVENTION OF THE VIDEO GAME.

common sense alone dictates other wise. How many millions of kids and adults play video games? And out of that how many people commit a crime, and at that a violent crime?

My point exactly. Every kid that plays video games that also happens to commit a crime also does things that lots of other kids do as well. Might as well go out and blame coca-cola for it, cause they all have that in common as well!

And breast feeding, most violent offenders would have been breast fed when they were young. Pretty obvious that that's the cause of all this. Violent crime was around before video games and so was breast feeding. CASE CLOSED!

I completely agree with Mr. Jeremy's unbiased opinion, and I may add that being a professional hitman myself, I consider videogames worse than murder./s

This brings back memories.

Remember when the HD DVD camp thought they were going to win solely because they had the porn industry backing them?

Good times!

I'm so disappointed in this guy
He has even participated in video games TV and internet ads, hell he's starred as Mario in porn! But then again, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. He's a reasonable man, he advocates the regulation of the porn industry, so he probably just thinks that video games should have a strict regulatory system.

A Porn star saying Games are worse than porn
is like a Tobacco executive saying that incense is worse than cigarettes.

So if video games are worse than porn... What would you call Ron Jeremy's Super Mario brothers porn?

Of course, people never killed each other until video games were produced.

Well, an overdose of anything is lethal so nothing new here.
Videogames are made for fun, but when some people live the games they have an INFLUENCE on the games " making them real ".

I know
My wife doesn't mind if I kill people, but damn, if I get caught watching porn...I'm screwed.

This article reeks of desperation from the adult entertainment industry, they're probably just bitter then everyone went to CES instead of their expo.

The did have it planned for the time of E3 but they realised E3 would have hotter girls getting taken advantage of by Nerd HOARDES(sp?)!

Depends on who is watching/playing. It all comes down to social heritage. For someone who has abusive parents, lives in a bad neighborhood, or is mentally unstable for some other reason anything can act as a trigger to violent actions.

These 'researchers' should study some social psychology before they start accusing different forms entertainment of things. And in any case banning things won't make things magically disappear. Need to go to the root of the what's causing the problem.

He's right in some ways. If you've ever played an online game, you know games can bring the douchbagginess out of people. Then there's the guys who kill themselves playing World of Warcraft for days straight.

Online doesn't bring out the idiot racist it's just gives them a microphone.

If you stood in a room filled with them they'd still be as annoying the difference is in the real world evolution dictates that the closest they'll ever come to a Woman is character creator.

Wow.
Holy crap. I can't believe that a pro from an entertainment medium that has been closed-mindedly chased down by political hawks screaming "Think of the children!" has the gall to point the blame at another entertainment medium that has been closed-mindedly chased down by political hawks screaming "Think of the children!"

Uh, Ron? Our '00s equal your '70s, okay? Lay off.

He's Right
Cain and Able were playing Pacman 1,000 BC Edition. Cain got mad because it didn't have Multiplayer. Thus killing Able.

Bwa Ha Ha. A Smut Peddler says that Videosgames are worse that porn? GA HA HA HA! Give me a f*cking break. Millions play videos games, and very few of these individuals (who are mentally unstable BTW) go on to commit crimes. As a matter of fact, of late, more violence has been done TOWARDS gamers.

Ron Jeremy's aging fast, and for a guy as butt-fugly as him, he should just be thanking his lucky stars that women were willing to be violated by him on film for the last 30 years.

And for him to be passing the buck like that, being a representative of another constantly embattled industry, just shows that almost anyone is willing to jump on the "vidya gaymes made 'im do it!" bandwagon.

I'd tell him to go f**k himself, but I'm sure he'd want money for it.
evilmonkey501  +   1964d ago
lol
that made me laugh..
XsteveJ  +   1964d ago
Bubbles to you Magna..that made me giggle

But fo reals, this is ridiculous. These two wonderful industries should band together and combat the naysayers!

Give me liberty, or give me games and porno! (I'll take the games and porno...)

Why didn't he just say "People, if you're buying too much video games you won't have enough money left to shovel down my throat. I'm still making money with my movies and I have bills to pay. Thanks"

Ron Jeremy? Who the F**k is that? Oh yeah a has-been male porn star I guess. So that makes him lower than dirt in my book. Not that he's a has-been porn star(s.n. I don't know if he's a has-been porn star but we'll assume, like he did)but that he would be stupid enough to say "Studies have found that violent video games are much bigger a negative influence on kids", now I have to insult for being a has-been male porn star or just an ignorant porn star whatever. Mr. Ron Jeremy when you get your head out of your a*& maybe you'll see that your comment made no sense at all. Since you have no proof, and since more people seem to think that porn, his industry provokes and/or influences non-consensual intercourse(i.e. rape) maybe he should watch what he says. There is a lot of ignorance in gaming, mostly among the community but we all know that comment was bullshit, no matter what system we love/hate.
