A Half Dozen People Petition White House to Round Up All Copies of Skyrim, Outlaw and Burn Them

A Tennessee man kicked off a White House petition on Thanksgiving urging the President of the United States to ban The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for "the safety of America's youths."

Update:

Turns out the petition was indeed created by the Christwire folks.
It's a fake.

The story is too old to be commented.

It just makes me wonder...what is seriously going on with people's heads?

Edit: This is a video game. Why do people go to such crazy lengths to do such things? Proof that once again people who don't fully understand the meaning of video games should just shut up and mind their business.

Just because you suddenly think that a video game is not good for you or your children doesn't mean that your decisions should mess with my entertainment. Learn to shut up.

And then the arrogance of their demands:

1) To enact an immediate ban on the videogame known as "SkyRim" produced by Blizzard Entertainment.

2) To seize and destroy all copies already in public hands and erase its presence on the internet. (Seriously?)

3) To prosecute the players of "SkyRim" to the fullest extent of the law. (SERIOUSLY???)

4) To create a national database of videogame avatars and "screen names" so that teenagers can be better monitored. (SERIOUSLY????!??)

What was going through this guy's head when he thought through this (which he probably should have)?

yeah and Alien Dinosaur Zombie's took over my Braaiiinnnnzzzzz

Corepred42093d ago

Why do I have a feeling he's either insane, retarded or a Jesus freak. lmao

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2093d ago

That petition breaks a few laws in itself. Kinda ironic.

Feldman90002093d ago

"Proof that once again people who don't fully understand the meaning of video games should just shut up and mind their business."

Um people should do this for all things. Also yeah he's a jesus freak b/c the other two descriptions combined already entail the same thing.

damnyouretall2093d ago

i dont play skyrim around my 5 year old. its up to me to protect my child from some videogames. dont blame the developer that wants to entertain adults, its not their fault. no run of the mill m17 game should ever be banned though.

Celeras2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

This is hilarious. Scratch that, pathetic.

Christwire is a satire site, like The Onion. You're all replying to a fake petition from a fake news site, because Kotaku is too stupid to recognize it... which surprises nobody.

rumplstilts2092d ago

It is obviously a joke. if you believe people are really this ignorant I have no idea how you can sleep at night thinking people are so dumb.

guitarded772092d ago

This has to be fake... it's completely unconstitutional what they list.

Dee_912092d ago

me and my 3 friends just signed a petition to the white house to make angelina jolie give us naked napdances everryday at 7pm est.

SilentNegotiator2092d ago

6 people protesting a video game. Let's all cry. /s

upallnightgamer2092d ago

He didn't even get the right publisher. It's Bethesda, not Blizzard. It really does show his ignorance and how little he researched his grievance before making everyone at the White House laugh by posting this garbage.

AntBoogy902092d ago

Yeah, what IS going on with people's heads?

It's either that..

Or someone is trolling the hell out of everyone with this.

Damn cant the news , politicians , and crazy people just stay away from vedio games

MariaHelFutura2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

I bet they're Xtians.... They just cant handle people are attracted (naturally) to anything. People love these pleasures (of the flesh) get over it. You guys had your chance, its our time now.

:)

Death2093d ago

Don't pin this on Christians. Contrary to popular belief, we do not condone or endorse blatant stupidity like this. This has to be one of your people. :)

MariaHelFutura2093d ago

Nope, my people make the games.

O_-

RankFTW2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

I'm a christian and I like nothing better than popping a few heads off in Battlefield/CoD, and ofc I'm always a homosexual in Fable heh. They are only games.

slayorofgods2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

its radical thinking; unfortunately, and ironically, sometimes people doped up on religion bring out the absolute worst of humanity. A few steps away from this "Jesus freak" mentality is the mentality of AL-quida.

....It is also unfortunate for the moderate christains who use religion for basic morals and established tradition to be made to look the fool because of these scary jokers.

awi59512093d ago

Im from the south yes they do condone this.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2093d ago

*Rolls eyes*

Oh brother. Here we go with more anti-Christian babble. Ya know for people who always bash Christians for intolerance you people seem to be in violation of that rule a lot...

And this is obviously a joke for the people who didn't get it. Now quit cluttering the website with this garbage and go back to listening to your heathen music and worshiping your pagan gods like Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber (again sarcasm for the people with anti Christian poles up their butts).

Tuxedo_Mask2092d ago

You say "you guys" and "my people", and Death says "your people", but aren't we all human beings? Assuming you are typing these responses and reading the statements of others it would seem so.

Rather than separate yourself from others due to a difference in beliefs, why don't you accept that some people will think and believe differently than you will. The man who started this petition isn't doing that, and by separating yourselves from the rest of humanity because "they're Christians" or "they're 'stupid'" you're guilty of the same sentiments as the man you're condemning.

slayorofgods2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

@ExgamerLegends

I'm not sure where you were directing that talk.... But my comment certainly wasn't anti-chritian, I read this article and it reeked of radical intolerance from Christian fundamentalism. I also stated that it is unfortunate for normal Christians. Sure atheists can be radical fundamentalists too, I tried to incorporate another religion to show I wasn't discriminating just didn't use athiesm in my example. I do have Christian friends afteral.... But I can't stand this cult like thinking that I see in the article I am commenting on. Buildings being leveled in my city and my favorite games being banned affect me.

Should I also be tolerant of al-quida's beliefs?

mynameisEvil2092d ago

Sometimes, people who love their opinion so much just look like idiots because they think they're correct about nothing at all. You are sadly one of those people.

I'm a Christian and I'll sit forever telling why I am one, and I'm also a Libertarian with Conservative leanings. Both, according to seemingly most gamers, think that we just think games are the devil.

NOPE! I am seriously one of the biggest gamers you'll ever find. This dude apparently loves Jesus so much that he fails to interpret His teachings that well.

And he apparently can't read the Constitution. I hope that this dude is joking or he is really one uber-dumbass.

But, back to my point, stop walking around with that view of yours. It's been proven false time and time again, yet you carry it around like it was your precious child. Think for yourself, please.

upallnightgamer2092d ago

Rather, don't lump all of us Christians in with the morons that we see on the news. Just like the Muslims don't want to be lumped in with the extremist nimrods of their faith.

This is what I don't get..

TO PROSECUTE THE PLAYERS OF SkyRim TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW...

What I do get is this simple equation

REDNECK+TEXAN+CHRISTIAN= EPIC LULZ

QuodEratDemonstrandm2092d ago

@MsclMexican....
that's not the right equation. It goes like this.
Redneck+(Christian-Reason)=EP IC LULZ squared.

upallnightgamer2092d ago

Unfortunately, that's where most of it comes from. We never hear this kind of crap from New England or Idaho. It's always Tennessee or Texas or some Southern state.

MsclMexican2093d ago

Im imagining what would happen if this goes down

FBI: GET YOUR HAND'S IN THE AIR..... YOU ARE UNDER ARREST FOR THE CREATION OF SkyRim

BLIZZARD: WAIT.... WTF?

Resistance_lord2093d ago
