Someone apparently heard about the SCOTUS decision and decided to drive the folks who lost even more insane with rage. I approve.

Even Yahtzee said in Zero Punctuation several times when going at a more absurdly violent one:

"All you need to do is picture relative, co-worker , boss into the enemies and you will delay your inevitable murder rampage againts society for about 1-2 months."

@>_<: Didn't you know that Japan is full of perverts? They even need "women only" trains, because men can't keep their hands to themselves! And instead of FIXING the problem by arresting all those guys, they IGNORE the problem and use gender-separation.

Most gamers are NOT violent. There are a few extreme cases though. And violence existed way before games.

When I see that I have to think about "Super Mario GTA" a very funny video on YouTube, where Mario and Luigi end up in Vice City.
No idea if it is allowed to post links but I just do it:

Dialog should be "Wanna do some... Videogames?"
Or "Want some... video games?"

Amusingly, psychologists and neurologists agree now that violent video games DECREASE stress and make the person who plays them LESS LIKELY to commit violent crimes.

The media, however, still defaults to video games as the root cause for violent crime.

Food for thought.

@...

Also republicans trying to placate them. I don't know why you defaulted to 'democrat', since traditional religion is generally associated with the right.

Ah, i do love it when you can just smell the shit coming out of the news. This is the most typical response for why a child will commit crimes. Reality is, it's usually only the method which a video game will imply, and underlying causes are usually what cause the rampage(Assholes all around)

Not really. Most gamers are pussies who can't do shit if they aren't hide at their rooms. Do you know that quiet geek guy from your school/work that nobody speaks too? He's a micspamer.

@ Platypus: I had this comic (and the follow up) made a while ago, but with the Court ruling (innocent) I was afraid people would not get the joke so I waited it cool down a bit.

So you got wind of the hullabaloo over the USA's Supreme Court ruling that video games are protected speech eh? I will say this, thanks to the pressure the ESRB has a more detailed rating system then Hollywood made after similar pressure.

it goes this way:

1) life screws kid over
2) kid plays game where screwed over kid sticks it to the man
3) kid gets fed up with people screwing them over
4) violence

personally i don't think the lawyers+politicians believe this is what happens. They just say they do so they can get more money/votes.

and if they do make a 40k MMO, i think the only way to do that would be to take a Dark Heresy style approach.

He isn't a violet gamer though.. he's simply a fireman rushing to an explosion/fire at the town's ketchup plant...and was asleep wearing his novelty Mario hat.


If he'd been wearing a Wario hat I'd think he'd be a ax murderer plowing through a street full of civilians, but since it's mario.....

You know, Christianist is a pretty useful shorthand for 'Christian Extremist'. Or even a generalized 'Religionist' would do nicely :P

@AXE MURDERER
While claiming that all Christians think this way is ridiculous, it's a sad truth that there are those (extremists) that do. Of course, this isn't restricted to Christianity, or any religion really.

I notice you didn't say Christian, you said Christianists. I don't know if you're crazy or a bad typist, I'm just going to go with the first one.

Yeah we really don't believe that even slightly.
