Phuck this Shite!

What about iTV in a Ghaddafi Documentary showing Arma 2 video game Footage and saying it was REAL LIFE IRA terrorist shooting down a helicopter! The stupid idiots didn't even know it was a video game until Gamers and Bohemian Interactive called the News station!

at least Gamers know real life from video games!

Well.... id have to disagree there. I'm currently in my college class, and I do a video games development course.

There's one person in my class who told me that he relates the real world to video games.

He does have very high aspergers though.

He also thinks walking around town and college with a tail he made is fine...........

@Kran "There's one person in my class who told me that he relates the real world to video games"

Then that person need to get his brain checked before he becomes the next so called halo killer who ends up on Fox news

@mendicant(below)..Dont act a fool...yes i know other news channels write dumb shit but fact is FOX news is the most BIAS/IGNORANT news channel in america.

mendicant3333d ago

Yeah because FOX is the real problem. No other news corporation gives games any crap.

lol guys...hes joking..cause you know aspergers at least i think so...if that isn't reference to south park then idk w/e.

cannon88003333d ago

Well I'm already retarded so it's all good.

MariaHelFutura3333d ago

Nope. Kids not knowing how to deal w/ life problems, being heavily medicated and the pressures put on them at such a young age is giving them dementia.

The Sun is just plan pathetic. Not only do they cause rumors, but they also try to bring down everything that's good in the world.

“Screen technologies cause high arousal which in turn activates the brain system’s underlying addiction. This results in the attraction of yet more screen-based activity,” Greenfield explains, continuing to claim that connections in the brain “can be temporarily disabled by activities with a strong sensory content – blowing the mind. Or they can be inactivated permanently by degeneration – ie. dementia.”

So basially, anything you view on a screen.

A computer screen. A Tv screen. A cinema screen.

Thats funny too because there's a lot of peoplein their 80's and 90's with dimentia, and I'm pretty sure they didnt have the crazy world we live in now in their day

The Sun gives people mental Aids. Fact.

Kran3334d ago

The Sun gives people insecurity.

Because they ruin the lives of celebrities, and normal people by the lies they spread around.

Gazondaily3334d ago

Lol brilliant. Funny because its true.

If you read the Sun then you really need to get yourself checked.

gunnerforlife3333d ago

its not that bad, for example the sport pages are pretty good especially the football side, but that's about it.

Shame the Sun and Mail didn't go the way of the NOTW. They do make up a ton of feces.

Just to add, I really want to play Cool Spot right now.

sagapo3333d ago

I don't recall me having dementia...
