Funny how stuff like this only happens in the US of A...

Its like they have a copyright on console retardity.

kesvalk3585d ago

it's not console retardity, it's just the absence of morality, this is what you get when you don't have good parent really caring about their children...

ThanatosDMC3585d ago

The guy was in the wrong and he's trash.

@Kesvalk

Agreed. When parents let the TV raise the children how can you blame them for acting as such? We see the creative bankruptcy on TV all the time and the white trash that comprises it. If and when I choose to have children, as much as I love games, I will be a part of their lives. I won't let the TV rule the world.

"Funny how stuff like this only happens in the US of A..."

Hey, Europe, how's your violent crime rate? Appallingly high, you say? Much higher than ours in America? Sorry to hear that.

Menech3583d ago (Edited 3583d ago )

Yeah funny thing is last time I checked I didn't live in Europe just a part of it when crime rate is insanely lower. And no one to this date has ever killed a class full of children and blamed it on counter strike.

Believe it or not unpopular to American belief the world doesn't fall under 3 classifications Europe USA and Asia. I live in England and when you don't add in the crime rate of area's like Poland and Germany its a very peaceful place.

"Yeah funny thing is last time I checked I didn't live in Europe just a part of it when crime rate is insanely lower."

Yes, this is known as "living in Europe".

"And no one to this date has ever killed a class full of children and blamed it on counter strike."

Please, the number of people who get stabbed to death in England in a week alone is five times the number of school shootings that occur in America every *decade*.

And even then, the number of games that have actually been banned over that kind of thing remains at zero, seeing as how we don't ban videogames on account of being a free country and everything.

"Believe it or not unpopular to American belief the world doesn't fall under 3 classifications Europe USA and Asia."

And I would have said "Hey, England" if your location hadn't said "Europe", given that my point still stands since England far outclasses the US in violent crime rates.

"I live in England and when you don't add in the crime rate of area's like Poland and Germany its a very peaceful place."

And yet England's rates of assault, robbery, and burglary are all at least twice as high as America's. I remember a while back, the United Nations released a study of crime in 18 developed nations and found that England and Wales led the Western world's crime league with nearly 55 crimes per 100 people.

Sorry, I'll gladly take having two people doing this kind of thing -- out of 250 million -- over that.

Although my first comment was clearly a joke to do with all the console related violence lately in the US since you insist on being a competely moronic idiot I will ask you to prove your facts instead of just typing nonsense that has nothing to do with my JOKE above.

And what the hell does robbery and assault have to do with video game related crimes, you idiot how about you pull some figures up on that. And if my "JOKE" did so happen offend your American pride am sorry. But for the love of god shut up dude am not interested in your crap.

Unlike you I have no intention of taking the time to degrade other nations. And force my opinions on how much better American is then the rest of the world. I was simply stating a fact America has alot of video game related crimes and shootings. So take your facts and figures and shove them where the sun doesn't shine am quite happy with where I live thank you. And the ENGLISH PEOPLE SEE THEM SELF AS ENGLISH who the hell are you to tell them otherwise.

By all means. Which ones? The one about weekly stabbing fatalities?

http://news.sky.com/skynews...

The one about how you have more violent crimes?

http://www.reason.com/news/...

"And what the hell does robbery and assault have to do with video game related crimes, you idiot how about you pull some figures up on that."

It's quite simple: People who live in certain societies should be aware of their own foibles when saying things like that some crimes are unique to some countries.

"And if my "JOKE" did so happen offend your American pride am sorry."

Well, given the available evidence, I imagine you're the one taking offense. Sincerest apologies if my bringing up actual statistics offends you.

"But for the love of god shut up dude am not interested in your crap."

I acknowledge that as your right.

"Unlike you I have no intention of taking the time to degrade other nations."

I have nothing against England, nor am I degrading it. I'm just saying that before you comment on other countries period, you should look at yourself first.

"And force my opinions on how much better American is then the rest of the world."

Noting that we have a lower rate of violent crime is the same thing as forcing an opinion? Fair enough.

"I was simply stating a fact America has alot of video game related crimes and shootings."

Except it's not a fact, because we don't. "A lot" would mean that school shootings, or cases like these, were some kind of weekly event -- They're not, though a lot of people seem to act like it's our defining cultural trait.

Also, jokes about school shootings are not very funny.

"So take your facts and figures and shove them where the sun doesn't shine"

A compelling argument, if ever I heard one.

"am quite happy with where I live thank you."

As is your right.

"And the ENGLISH PEOPLE SEE THEM SELF AS ENGLISH who the hell are you to tell them otherwise."

Who's saying otherwise? All I said was that your location in your profile was listed as "Europe". Which it is.

Menech3583d ago

First news link has no relevance to the US, and the second one is some retarded American site that thinks British people should carry guns in there homes. They hold no weight what so ever...

Now lets look at an article from the BBC the most trusted news agency in the world

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/...

now once you have read that and realised how much of a twat you are come back and say your sorry.

I put an alternate link up that has a slightly more descriptive... description.

Man, the guy was 26 and his girlfriend was 24... and he started pouting over not getting a RC airplane? That's just pathetic. You know your life sucks when you live with your grandparents, whine over not getting a children's toy, and drag your girlfriend down the stairs all on Christmas day.

mrdxpr23585d ago

soooooooo true RC ariplane of all things he needs to get atleast 4 years so his whiny a$$ would mature and not fight with his GF for giving him a wii a $250 gift,.... im a ps3 fanboy but if my GF gave me a 360 i wouldnt fight with her i would thank her and just tell her i love u and thks... even thoe she knows i wont play it much.... he just needs to grow up

patterson3585d ago

That guy is a real winner

mrdxpr23585d ago

ok that guys is eather mentally challenegd or stupid and imature...cause u going to fight with your GF for a christmas gift that happened to be a wii.... I would be happy that my GF gave me a wii even thoe i have one but its the thought that counts but some people dont realize that/..... and then the most gayes part is that he goes and tells his grandparents wow how old is he 15....

ChampIDC3585d ago

See, violence comes from all video games, not just violent ones! Jack Thompson needs to jump on this one!
