It's so hypocryte. Parents shouldn't let there 9 year olds play violent games and you never hear people about the movie industry wich is almost based on sex and violence. All these politicians talking popular sh*t. Let them do something about the Iraq war. That's where people a really dying. Let them do something about the fact that weapons are so easily available in America, instead of always looking for a scapegoat and ignoring the real issues.

Some seniors telling us that we (young gamers, im 21) are getting more violently because of games. Let them play the games themselves and let the notice that it is more about the feeling of beeing the Hero/Villian that you will never become than the idea that you can handle the world on ur own.

They dont know sh!te

I don't know what the driving force behind these retard politicos is, be it the network television or film industry lobyists (maby even farming for easy votes), but they need to stop hounding a media that (as the documentry said) HALF OF AMERICA CHOOSES TO PLAY. That's about 150 million people spending anywhere from $20-$60 a game. Video games have become the choosen media of the 21st century for (in my opinion) the very fact that you actually participate instead of watch. You get to do something while you sit there, Your enjoying your time playing a video game more than you would a movie or listening to a song over and over. Already actors, studios, and Directors are becoming involved with the games industry, because they know that the change is about to happen. Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Lucas-arts (combined the movie and video game studios into one) are a few top names that have begun a transition from film to the new media because they know which has the bettter potential for greatness. It is my hope that the politicians realize this some day as well.

It is a film exploring the arguments for and against video game violence and comparing it against other violent mediums in media. It will, in no way, be a film of video game bashing. As for sjappie... The reason we have a war in Iraq is because of these politicians. Your entire argument is moronic and irrelevant.

How does GTA reward you for shooting cops again? Oh yeah...they take away some money...and you lose reputation! Because THAT'S a reward!

Guys...and i mean ALL guys...CALLING EVERY FANBOY!!! We need to stop arguing on these forums and let congress know WHY we play these games. We all have different reasons...but i SERIOUSLY doubt DOOM and FLIGHT SIMULATOR are killing Americans!!!
