NowGamer: Latest Call of Duty game reignites old debate.
Keith Vaz "there is increasing evidence of a link between perpetrators of violent crime and violent video games users" The truth "there is increasing evidence of a link between UK Labour Governments and economic collapse leading to an increase in violent crime and civil disorder" A simple answer would be to sell more video games to help the economy and keep the violent people indoors in front of their TVs. And ban the Labour Party.
Hold on.... "that this House is deeply concerned about the recently released video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, in which players engage in gratuitous acts of violence against members of the public." I haven't played the campaign yet but is there any level where you have to kill members of the public ala MW2?
No, but there are civilians in some levels à la Favela.
BF fanboys/Cod haters put our differences aside. This is more than Cod this is about the Fccking goverment who comes with ther BS video game cause violence sh1t. Let's unit and say fuck the goverment,it could be any game.
I really am bored of these so called 'evidence' of violent games making violent people. It's an eternal argument, that really seems like it'll never end.
Politics & religion can be linked with violence, shall we ban those?
Alcohol is the cause of over 60% of night crime in the UK. Why isn't that banned? Double standards. These MPs are just jumping on the bandwagon over a medium they don't even understand. They are basing their opinions on hearsay. Where do you draw the line? What next? Emotions are linked to violence- before you know it, those are banned like in the movie Equilibrium.
Over 200,000 accidents are caused on the roads in the UK every year. Let's ban the roads!
science can link to Violence.. everything can turned in a bad way
Murder rates go up whenever ice cream sales go up. No joke. We need to ban ice cream!!!
I don't even think that the content of Modern Warfare 3 warrants an 18 rating anyway. Does it compare to films like Irreversible? No.
It's due to its popularity, really. More people play it, more people know about it, more kids want to play it. Mom and dad see what kids are playing, call BBFC in disgust, BBFC forever slaps 18+ certs onto everything with that name on it so the angry old people will stop calling them and threatening their jobs.
Getting sick of politicians, if there is any proof that democracy is a terrible system it is that bellends like these guys get into a position of power. Only problem is there is mist likely no better system...
Actually, a resource based economy with large-scale social programs, run by technicians and engineers, would be infinitely better. But every greedy system in the world will fight tooth and nail to keep the power they have, so a real change would be a painful one at first. A good quote to remember: "Politicians are trained to make decisions, engineers are trained to solve problems."
I played the game and shot virtual people. Now I think shooting people is cool because I've no mind of my own and no violent film that I've seen has ever given me the same drive to take another person's life even though there are films that are much more violent than games that I've watched. I will not take morality into question because shooting people in the game obviously makes it okay to shoot real people even though at no point in the game does it say to shoot real people or even imply it in any shape or form. /s Seriously, the game is 18s. Its up to parents not to let their children play it. Though I've been playing 18 rated games since I was 9 and now I'm 22 and perfectly fine. "Grabs gun".
Keith Vaz won't learn will he? Sticking false stuff in like "there is increasing evidence of a link between perpetrators of violent crime and violent video games users" is just desperate. Let's see the evidence then, yeah? And these people are running the UK. Just trying to get brownie points with the mum brigade. Grow up.
Ahahahaha, what bunch of jokers. It doesn't matter that they went to war for a lie, one game is the problem.
Ludicrous bunch of silver spoon, MP wankers.
its a pattern in the old day when there was only books its was books blamed for violence and misbehaviour, then it was music and tv and now video games are at a all time high and its young people who sterotypicaly play them (and i will point out the sterotypicaly again) and its an easy target to point the finger and the young generation, because they are the ones who always seem to be on the news because people can't take the law into there own hands and tell the kids to F off without being arrested. everything is going to the dogs and the government are throwing petrol on the fire!!
Won't somebody please think of the children!
they did the same thing in the late 80's early 90's with regards to the acid house movement! tried to ban that and big warehouse parties cos they didn't understand what it was all about! as usual out of touch like all governments worldwide! they need to stop with their elitism and actually get on the ground level like the average person before spouting their usual shite!
Ah once again its Keith Vaz, the idiot who repeatedly said that manhunt was the cause behind a murder, even when its was proved that the murderer didn't even own the game. (Warren Leblanc killed Stefan Pakeerah to fund his drug habit and not because of manhunt) Did Keith Vaz issue an apology? did he b*****ks he just didn't say anything when he was proved wrong. He's the equivalent of Jack Thompson in this country, the only reason he's known is due to his repeated outspoken views on violent games. Just look at some of the dodgy crap he has participated in http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... He's just a corrupt attention seeking tw*t
